KR+H's Kitchens Video: narrative in design


As I was writing our previous blog post about the B/A/D Talks event where we explored the idea of Narrative Architecture, I thought of our video, Kitchens. Narrative plays a leading role in design at KR+H. This can be seen on our Kitchens video where Paul Reidt expresses his thoughts on how he approaches design.

Here are just a couple of the ideas Paul shares:

MEASURE OF SUCCESS

"I think maybe the best measure of whether a kitchen is successful or not is whether you've created a setting for people's lives that supports those lives. It's the place where memories are created. It will serve as a setting for so many human experiences; and I especially think of this when there are young children, wondering whether they're going to bring images of this place into their future."

HEARING THE STORY

"Many times our customers come to us with images of things that are appealing to them. [...] And it's important for us to know why these things are appealing. I always want to hear the story that they have to tell."

We hope you'll take a short three minutes to see our Kitchens video. You'll meet Paul and travel through images of kitchens designed by us and other design professionals who share our interest in narrative in design. You can view the video below. Enjoy!
