How will awareness for the environmental change investors' view on the built environment? Are we at the beginning of a revolution?
As interior architects, we are responsible for spreading knowledge about sustainable design. We are the ones who should 'infect' investors with the need to care for the environment in the context of planning their own living space.Back to home page
At the beginning of each project, we research and identify the needs of our investors. This is an important stage which I try to do thoroughly, because I know that understanding and carefully listening builds trust and an open mindset with the customer towards non-standard thinking throughout the design process.
During the initial design stage, we at Jam Kolektyw try to trigger the clients' environmental awareness. For now, it is a small step method, which is easy to implement in small projects. During the talk at A@W Warsaw, I plan to discuss how we managed to carry out this process by illustrating the renovation of a flat from the 1970s. We completed this project in 2021. I believe that trade fair events can be of great educational value and, as indicators of upcoming trends, contribute to the introduction of eco-friendly practices in design.
