Which of these words, if you had to choose only one, best describes your approach to design; intuitive, intentional or spontaneous? Why?
Susi Leeton: It would have to be two words – intuitive and intentional. They go hand-in-hand in my opinion.
Each design requires an intuitive response to the site’s potential; the way the sun falls, the shadows and light, the function and feel of a space.
I intuitively listen to the client and intentionally work through the most functional and beautiful options. I often prepare many options before I even show the client one of them. There is a lot of rigour and intent in our designs, even if they do appear intuitive.
