The path is one of the oldest forms of design, an escort for the new, a guide for the lost, a practical direction in and out of a space. It’s an instruction manual with no words. Go this way. That is the influence of spatial design. My favorite aspect of design is that everything, every little…

AC isn’t just a luxury it’s a life-saver, especially in urban settings. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some downfalls. Aside from their contribution to green house gases, old filters and inefficient machines…
