“After our initial meeting, I delivered three different possible directions for a modern home and, based on the proposals, the family chose to proceed with one of them. I often present several different possible directions when I work. They form the basis for seeking out and specifying needs and desires, as I do not consider a simple solution to be right at an early stage. In addition to fulfilling the practical needs and desires of the family, I also wanted to deliver something extra, something they had not anticipated.
“The family’s style was well defined from the very start, in part because they had already sent me all of their Pinterest inspiration boards. They had a vast number of ideas and thoughts and my task was to create structure and find a common denominator from the many images. I already knew that I would be designing a house for happy people who are quality-conscious, like to entertain and are very social. We had ongoing discussions about aesthetics throughout the entire process and what that meant in relation to finances and the square footage available,” explains Danko Lekic.
