The elements of good design are many & varied, but must always include the following:
Commodify · Good design is functional for it's users or inhabitants and is effecient in use of area, space & energy.
Firmness · Good design is structural integrity, often including an expression of it's structure.
Delight · Good design is pleasing both to the eye and the senses. Sometimes hard to define but always true.
Finally good design always fits it's time and place. The preceding are examples of our commitment to these ideas. This is who we are.
