An interior design is successful when it meets its criteria targets.
Creating innovative and practical interior requires a clear understanding of a client’s aspirations, culture as well as current and future needs.
Array's Interior Design mandate is to Creatively Design and organize the client's needs in practical yet attractive and unique environment.
Hierarchy of spaces and balance of open and closed spaces while maintaining visual interest are essential planning design ingredient. Contrast with light, texture and the marriage of interior spaces along with good detailing are characteristic of our work.
Array's designs have a distinct elegant detailing approach.
The eloquence in the language of architecture is measured by how a building is put together. The joining of materials in a manner that retains the integrity of each part, while assigning a function compatible and advantageous to its nature, has always been a measure of “seriousness” in architecture.
“God is in the details”—a phrase attributed to Mies van der Rohe and revered by all of us as we endeavor again and again to do the right thing. Architecture is order and this order carries throughout the building down to the smallest corner. There is no back side to architecture any more than there is a detail that is unimportant.
Detailing expresses the “how” of buildings and when done with great care and skill reinforces the “why” it can express the honesty not only of the architecture but of all those involved in the making of it. It is a slow process whose results are seldom noticed. It has been said that good detailing should never show the agony it took to produce it, but should appear as if it had not been detailed at all, as if it went together the way it wanted to go together—or as Lou Kahn has said, “the way it wants to be.”
Array's designs have been noted for maximization of day lighting and their thoughtful and careful lighting design. Minimizing glare while providing adequate illumination for the task are essentials to the users comfort.
The proper manipulation of all variables involved in lighting, the light source, luminaries, reflective and absorbent surfaces and the play with perception to create optimum visibility, safety and effect is the ultimate goal of lighting design.
This is the ingredient that blends with the interior and lighting to give a sense of order, direction and corporate style. Array Architects skill in environmental graphics gives style and ideal finishing touches to a successful project.
Elegance, wit and inspiration combined with comfort and responding to the users’ needs lead to a creative and productive environment.
