Well, I posted the picture to above a few months ago; the fancy job in Manhattan Beach. We are just completing that project this week. As you can see, the Owner has great taste. I see two things as being important to producing a good product. One is the idea or concept, and the second is the quality of the execution.

Neither is enough on its own. A great design or idea is not fully expressed and communicated if the craftsmanship is poor. Likewise superior crafting of a poor design tends to be empty and unsatisfying. We need both together; it’s simple, but not always so easy.
