is the basic structure on which all other parts are founded. This takes place at street level and the building and the aspect of the building are located in an environment on which we have no influence. At the same time, it is imperative that the building and the aspect of the building interact with the surroundings. Architecture includes buildings, aspects of buildings, manufacturing plants, extensions and single-family houses, which Bønnelycke mdd has designed and subsequently overseen the construction of.
Thus, architecture encompasses everything that cannot immediately be moved or rolled aside, once we have completed our work. Consequently, the overall lines represent a very unique obligation. The end-user must be comfortable and the infrastructure must work. Details such as surfaces, handles, lighting and colour are secondary in this respect. However, architecture is not successful until all details have been accurately prioritized and combined.
The joy of working with architecture is basically related to the joy of working with and around boundaries given beforehand. In fact, our creativity is stimulated by such boundaries because we are forced to utilize them optimally – both physically and financially. An assignment with no boundaries loses its importance. There must be a starting point as well as definitive end.
Interior decorating is about approaching an empty room in a logical, strategically way and making it attractive and useful. For example in shops, how should the lighting inside a women’s lingerie dressing room fall and what is the ideal distance between an espresso machine and the trash bin in a café? A nightclub or dance hall must both give an environment for flirtation whilst at the same time offer a plain view for the waiters and bartenders, without the guests feeling that they are being watched. Irrespective of the nature of the assignment, the final result should be like a dance: accurately and rhythmically orchestrated.
Interior decorating is exposed to the scrutiny of an audience from the moment the doors open. Their reaction to lighting, furniture comfort and the display of restroom facilities is immediate. The audience must be able to determine what to expect from a place even before a door closes behind them. They must be presented with a total experience. One might draw a parallel to the difference between actually being in Brazil and holding a pen from Brazil. It is all about being embraced and captivated. The overall idea must be present in the furniture, the walls, the tableware etc.
No two places must be alike. Our unique experience in customizing our designs of furniture, lamps and details enables us to be innovative in relation to each individual project.
Experience has taught us that precision and dialogue are of vital importance when presenting our ideas during the developing process. Consequently, we use plans, elevations, sections, visualizations and 3D interactive files in order to make the process easily comprehensible and to ensure a qualified basis on which to make the necessary decisions.
