Design manifesto - Angela Elliss Design

Architecture is the built form of people & their desire to have relevant place, for family, work & pleasure. To hear the unique story that is read when moving through a crafted space, the ability to make an every day task seem relaxing & enjoyable - that is the true composition of beautiful architecture.

Too often the architectural worth of a building is valued using purely visual means. Decisions made this way can be overly influenced by such things as fashion, personal self-esteem & social acceptance. But it is the human felt experience while using these spaces that truly speaks its success & worth. This essence of a building's place, worth & belonging can be established with the use of such mediums as:

simplicity of lines

It is also the responsibility of the designer to constantly educate & inform the client of the architectural process, not because it is required as part of the Architect Registration Act but because good communication will greatly increase the likelihood of producing a beautiful building - an art form for all people to enjoy & appreciate.

The environment you live & work in not only has an amazing effect on your physical health, but it also mentally shapes who you are and who you may become. What is a building if it raises nothing of enjoyment or inspiration from the individuals who utilize it? As a designer I want to generate creative & positively reactive spaces for people to be in - where you feel enjoyment & are inspired by what the building gives back to you.

True architecture is not the latest forms & colours that are offered to us through glossy journals. Architecture is the constructional form of people & the way they live.
