We asked, Ryan Koslowski answered:


What makes a great design? 

“Great design transcends mere aesthetics; it’s about creating timeless spaces, enriching lives through meaningful experiences and moments. It’s about fostering personal growth, both mentally and physically, while igniting a sense of wonder.


At its core, great design revolves around the human experience. It’s about understanding how architecture can inspire, support, and excite individuals, shaping their interactions and memories.


Moreover, exceptional design extends beyond human-centric considerations; it harmoniously integrates with and respects our surroundings, acknowledging our responsibility to the environment.”


How would you describe your leadership style?

“My leadership style hinges on attentive listening and empowering individuals. I strive to cultivate an environment where everyone – colleagues, consultants, and clients alike – feels valued and empowered to share their design ideas or concerns. This inclusive approach ensures that each person can play a meaningful role in the successful delivery of a project.”
