Over the years, I've had the good fortune of working on skyscaper and mountain refuges alike, but the highlight has been collaborating with exceptional talent, good listeners who pay attention to detail and who can - no matter what the size, cost or complexity - render each project into a beautifully crafted, one-of-a-kind design.
Because of this, a habit has formed. At the end of the day, when we put our pencils down and reflect on what we've done, we simply ask ourselves.. "Were we excellent today?"
Then, we do it all over again.
