Successful architects with an architectural object usually excel by delving deeper into the subjective side of the client, often achieved through conversations and discussions. This approach allows architecture to be based on intuition during the design process, serving as a creative outlet for implementing aesthetic theories.
Beauty is indeed subjective, influenced by various factors within each individual. When the client selected Jeghier Architect for the design of this house, their initial request was to level the house with the ground and rebuild it entirely. However, as architects, we saw hidden beauty in the existing structure and considered the historical value of the building. Additionally, the significant cost involved in starting from scratch was taken into account. Therefore, the Jeghier Architect team proposed a design approach that leverages the existing structure but is presented with a fresh and unique sensation.
Creating a sensation is only possible when the biological functions of our bodies related to sensation and perception are in normal condition; for instance, the eyes can see, the nose can smell, and the mind is in a normal/perceptive state. Can an object stimulate our brain in a way that brings pleasure when in contact with an architectural object? The pleasure obtained prompts our brain to declare something beautiful.
Moreover, the influence of the environment and society plays a role in shaping our perception of beauty. Factors such as education contribute to our understanding of beauty, emphasizing continuous exposure and methods for appreciating an object. At La Hacienda, satisfaction is derived from utilizing the existing building structure, making the construction process faster, more cost-effective, and ensuring the end result is still impeccable."
