Architect Warren Hagues: Why it’s vital to consider how we use indoor space


Interior architecture forms a large portion of our design remit, especially when it comes to private residential projects.

While the external appearance of a project is an important consideration during the design process, it is the way in which the users of the building interact with the interior space that is a vital factor. Taking this important element into account is key to achieving a successful project.

Time and again we are approached by clients who have previously gained planning permission for a design by others that only considered the planning policies of a given borough and not how the internal spaces can be most suitably used. We strongly believe that architects should consider both of these aspects of a project in order to satisfy a client’s brief. To consider only the interior or exterior of a building,
in isolation, will not yield the best result.

Every client is an individual so when it comes to interior architecture we would rather act as facilitators to develop our clients’ preferred tastes. We do not believe that it is our role to impose our personal tastes upon a client’s home unless asked to do so.
