What defines your design process?
SCOTT: Our conceptual process is to source and curate a well of inspiration that draws from global, modern, and contemporary design. Our goal with any space is to create a good energy using a combination of scale and proportion mixed with finishes and colors.
What`s your motto in architecture?
SCOTT: Form meets function. Our practice is to precisely hone in on what is needed to make a space cohesive, expressive and functional.
Whom do you draw inspiration from?
SCOTT: Many architects and artists, among whom Tdao Ando, Patricia Urquiola, Piero Lissoni and Pitsou Kedem. I admire Tdao Ando for the way he blends the outdoor and the indoor; Patricia Urquiola for dictating what`s modern and setting trends and Piero Lissoni for his clean and industrial aesthetics. I am also inspired by Pitsou Kedem`s pursuit for purity of form and shape and in its goal of achieving a spatial perception of comfort and tranquility.
What are your favorite buildings?
SCOTT: Tadao Ando`s Eyechaner Lee House and the Ando Gallery at the Art Institute of Chicago. The first because it is mostly concrete but has a softness that feels magical and enchanting. The second because of the incredible energy that such a minimal space is able to emanate. I am also fascinated by the Broad Musuem by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in LA because it cuts such a beautiful shape and is very pleasing to me both inside and out.
What are your favorite destinations?
SCOTT: London. Amsterdam, Belgium, Greece.
Do you like to cook?
SCOTT: Yes and my favorite dish to make and eat is Korean miso and honey glazed cod.
