And if the quality of our stay is enhanced in a natural and appealing manner by the space’s orientation, usability, use of materials, colours, lighting and acoustics, then our time is rendered even more satisfying. This is where the art of interior design comes into the equation. While we tend to think primarily about architects when considering buildings, the idea of a classic high-rise architect is more of a city-based concept. With houses designed as cubes and volumes, their facades set the stage for an urban public space,taking what is essentially a sculptural approach.
