Interior design and architecture  

Expert opinion

Ivars Šļivka, architect
Design for architects mostly means a culture of details – a continuation of architectural conception in the details of interiors, facades and environmental design. A good architect is certainly also a designer. Rastrelli made the drawings of door handles for palaces himself! It is a question of quality. The quality of a construction or transformed environmental object depends on the quality of professional collaboration. The design part of projects in our office is developed by architects or outsourced designers. Thus only, the intended sensory field of a building can be realised. We also see that with the relative abundance of designers there are not that many professionals who could deal with the environment or interior design tasks at best level. Unless talking about design as decoration, this profession requires a certain level of knowledge in sciences, the designer schools and universities do not provide or provide insufficiently.
