In Reply to: When an architect designs for himself... posted by lovleen on March 19, 2004 at 11:27:40:
I'm an interior designer with a passion for architecture. I'm not sure why you think it needs to be so complicated. If it's your own house, then where are the restraints apart from those imposed by the planning and regulations authorities?
I designed my own home and got exactly what i wanted using the spirit of freedom within my own imagination. I think perhaps you could be prsenting too many obstacles in front of this project and blocking your own ideas from coming through.
The best way forward might be to design the house exactly as you'd like it first and focus on why you have introduced various concepts into the design to reflect your ideas. After all it is your house.
Then after you have got that far you can concentrate on addressing any other complications.
When you're designing something for yourself, you're a free artist, not someone with a ball and chain tied to their ankle complying with the whims and wishes of someone else.
Experience the freedom of having a blank canvas at last. You don't need permission to be you, there's the simple pyschology!
