commercial / residential design
I spent time talking to Neitha Wilkey at the Ignite U breakfast meeting this morning. It was very interesting to learn why she is passionate about being an architect and what drew her to the profession. She has 25 years experience. One of her many strengths is being able to put into words and explain how to get the best use of planned space. Should the door open this way or that way and why. What kind of lighting do you want and need? What are your goals? Her involvement in planning your space will result in a finished design that won't need "do overs" or "gee, I wish I had thought of that before we put up the walls". So whether you are involved in a commercial or residential project Talking to Guerroeo Architects should be a key part of your process.
