HOW DOES THIS EXPERT & SUPPLIER CONTRIBUTES TO A GREAT SHOP?

In addition to the material and its interpretation, transparency, the play of reflection suggest rather than illustrate the endeavours that have resulted in the real grandeur of some projects, primarily places for public use. Since they are closely related in function to the image of the self, Glenn Sestig develops a seductive relationship, inviting visitors to spend a narcissistic moment with themselves. To achieve this, he deploys a knowledge of the situation that is almost mystical. According to Sestig, space is the product of a complementarity, a cohabitation between the individual and his body continues in the private interiors. Here, however, the conspicuous ingenious device of the mirror is seen in the context that gives it is meaning, its sense of distance and dimension. To gives his work coherence, the architect uses his own method of calculation, a sort of mental model from which flow the intelligence, equilibrium and soul of a place. This necessary analytical exercise, which involves decoding the common roots of work, does, however, have one grave shortcoming: the temptation to reduce a multiform whole to al limited numbers of factors, stripped of perspectives. But these exist, nonetheless, and are all the more evident in the world of the office. The arrangement of planes, the way the lines are drawn, the depth of colour, the use of light come into play, all of these confirmed by the choice of materials. But this explanation is a tribute to reason, tho the Cartesian way of thinking that is not immediately applicable to the architecture of Glenn Sestig. However it is put into practice and whatever its purpose, it engages through the sensitive way in which it appeals to the emotions. Do we not find here an extraordinary realisation, that of timeless places, whose beauty arises from a process that draws on an uncodified thought process; could this be emotional intelligence?
