Laura Silverstone: designer, architect, the founder and owner of Hpdesignwheels Studio. She is the winner of 15 local and international design contests. Laura’s projects are successfully realized not only in the US, but also in other countries of the world.
Laura is the author of the entire conception of the studio and she holds personal responsibility for each project.
I should say that I work strictly, trying to persuade a client to listen to my point of view if I see that the design plan he/she offers won’t be a success. I just can’t afford dealing with projects that are doomed to failure right from the start, even if these projects are costly. This is because satisfaction and pleasure I get from brilliantly developed projects cannot be measured by any financial rewards.
My mission is to cultivate taste without imposing modern tendencies, which come and go too fast. I’m sure that it is an architect, who forms the views, space and his/her own vision of the surrounding world. Top-casinos-us.com By forming the perception of space, you form the worldview. And it’s not only your worldview, but that of each client as well. And our customers understand that.
Sometimes I have to be strict, if not even rude.
Laconicism, genuineness, functionality.
Laconicism, genuineness, functionality - this is what Hpdesignwheels Studio is about. My major inspiration is nature. My favorite flowers are chrysanthemums. I like the moments, when my family gets together and I hear the laughter and jokes of my husband and kids. My favorite dish is chicken pie and I like it, because my husband cooks it for me. What is needed to gain success? Whatever you do, you have to work really hard and get pleasure from what you are doing.
Some of Laura’s quotations:
“I’m not interested in working “ahead” to keep the ideas just for sake. I don’t like drawing projects. I like bringing them to life”.
“An architect forms the vision, views, space perception and surrounding. By forming space, you form the worldview”.
If we have accepted a project and started working on it, we are responsible for each stage, including project development, equipment and authorized supervision.
We never do similar objects and we don’t duplicate them. We understand that each client is unique and needs a unique project.
Our portfolio involves lots of complicated and successfully realized projects. Sometimes, it seems that complicated objects and clients is what we focus on. We feel great when working in all contemporary styles, but we try to make individual choices in each case depending upon the needs of our clients. For this purpose, we try our best effort to find out as much as possible about each person we work with.
We deliberately think over all the details and elements. We try to implement solutions by using natural materials. We prepare a full set of documents required for the constructors, subcontractors and suppliers.
We try to make our 3D visualization as precise and detailed as possible both in the presentation of the general conception and all the interior items included into a project.
To start with, each element of the equipment is defined at the stage of project planning. We already know what manufacturer or supplier has the materials we need.
Secondly, this helps save much time when performing the search and handling logistics issues.
Thirdly, we can organize equipment supply with regard to the plans without the need to look for warehouses.
Finally, this is a great budget economy. We offer our clients all the bonuses provided by the manufacturers we’ve been collecting for years.
As a result, both parties are satisfied.
When working on the development of complicated projects (especially when it comes to the reconstruction of the old historic buildings), we sometimes face unpredictable situations on the construction stage, which may require the correction of the interior design project.
Understanding of construction technologies and specifications of the local construction issues makes it possible for us to visit the object on time to supervise important moments of project completion. Or there is an option to create a project website. We’ve tried to choose what platform to prefer - weebly vs wix, but then decided to make our visualisation with both of them.
We can share responsibility with the constructors, thus, eliminating the need to look for the guilty ones or adjust the budget afterwards.
It’s high time to talk about prices now.
If both a project and a budget are agreed upon, it’s a must for both parties to stick to the plan. However, it happens that a client starts looking a contractor, who charges lower prices. As a result, the budget is managed by an inexperienced person, who doesn’t have any reliable partner. This frequently results in a failure…
Another situation is when a client takes initiative and tries to find different ways to make a project cheaper, change the equipment or look for the cheaper counterparts. This is inadmissible to us. We always ensure the most suitable ideas that are the best value for the money required to complete the project. We don’t allow using “counterparts”, counterfeits or imitations of any kind. We believe that images and content fade when counterfeits are brought into action. An artist starts degrading and a client is left unsatisfied with the result.
We are worth the trust of our clients as we offer them our price lists right from the start so that they could make sure that they will eventually avail quality, unique, authentic and persuasive result! This is a real satisfaction both for us and our clients! This feeling is much more valuable than all those equipment bonuses implied by the agreement with our clients. If we promise to complete your project, we will surely do that in the best way possible!
The final cost involves the cost of the interior design project, equipment used and authorized supervision.
Our clients are businessmen, serious people and dreamers at the same time. They have traveled the world and explored foreign standards of architecture and design. What they want now is to make their lifetime dreams come true. Having a stunning object of architecture, such as a country mansion or any other public object, always creates stylish, powerful and notable impression. This is the dream that has to come true!
