“The most vital point of action in my opinion is that when you start a project, you visit the location and try to understand the way local people live. These people know the weather conditions, the ground conditions etc and have fine-tuned over the generations the art of using these aspects in everyday life. So we take all of these fundamental characteristics of local architecture and infuse new technologies and commercial parameters. This allows us to create a harmonious property.”
