Q&A with Rob Turner
Where do you find design inspiration?
Inspiration for each design comes directly from the client. PKDG's understanding and appreciation of modern architecture and interiors has been influenced by famous architects/artists such as Le Corbusier, Richard Meier and Frank Lloyd Wright.
How do you approach the design process?
PKDG approaches the design of a home based on the site, location and the client's requirements. With a precise attention to detail, the firm creates specific, personalized spaces that reflect the ideas and lifestyle of each client.
What is the greatest value you provide your client?
PKDG provides value to its clients by merging high design with functionality.
What is your biggest challenge as a designer/architect?
Our biggest challenge as designer and architect is working with client couples who have a difference of opinion in style or budget. Our job is to create a balance and make both happy.
What does the Sub-Zero and Wolf Kitchen Design Contest mean to you?
Being recognized in the Sub-Zero and Wolf Kitchen Design Contest is a huge honor. Partnering with the leader in refrigeration and cooking, we feel that this collaboration elevates our product and design.
What are some of the current design trends?
Sleek, clean lined kitchens are the current design trend. Having enough storage space to put everything behind closed doors is a necessity in many of today's kitchens.
