Like designing a lighting fixture, the functions of a building must be met first before aesthetic considerations come into play. There are also the added requirements of the client and the budget that control the whole process. And then there are the various construction codes that have to be met.

All this can place limitations on creative freedom where il lessico either minimally plays a part or not at all. That doesn't necessarily subtract from the quality of the end result in anyway. Just that maybe from a design perspective, it is nothing special.

With every project i undertake, plants and vegetation are not an afterthought; they are an important part of the initial stages of a design.
The integration of plants and vegetation with built elements, whether inside
or outside, is an important aspect and can contribute immensely to the experience and feel of a space (place).

Within a building, many plants cleanse and purify the air removing
pollutants and harmful chemicals. Some of the psychological benefits
include improved mood and sense of well-being, reduced stress, anxiety,
and depression and increased feelings of calm, relaxation, and optimism.

The other factor that is of prime importance is light, daylight in particular. Aside from the benefits to one's emotional well-being living and working in daylight, a space naturally lit allows one to experience that space or a series of spaces as a whole, uniting the architectural elements. It also has the added benefits of saving energy and money.

Creating a connection between the inside and the outside is very important so that people in a building can feel connected to nature, not isolated and cut-off from the outside world.

What follows is a selection of projects that have a relationship (some more than others) to the lamps, paintings and music, though mostly in the details.

This section is in progress and is updated as i finish projects that are relevant to il lessico.
