Do you think your future designs will adapt to create spaces where we can work and play, and that take us from the cradle to the grave?
I think it’s cemented the way we work at Buckley Gray Yeoman. Our ethos has always been about refining, redefining, enhancing, and adapting, and the pandemic has demonstrated so clearly the importance of those principles, not only in architecture but in all aspects of life.
We now have to think and behave differently, and so do the spaces we occupy, be they for work or relaxation. Design needs to be robust. It has to be multiuse but not confused—each space has to be focused and clear in its purpose.
