The elements of good design are many & varied, but must always include the following:
Commodity · Good design is functional for its' users or inhabitants and is efficient in use of area, space & energy.
Firmness · Good design is structural integrity, often including an expression of its' 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 its' time and place. The following are examples of our commitment to these ideas. This is who we are.
