This article focuses on finding the right architect. In retrospect, finding the right architect turned out to be relatively easy, but it didn't quite seem that way during the process. The author says that the author did her master's work in interior design and had spent 20 years in the field of interior architecture. She wasn't a particularly good designer, but she surely could recognize quality when she saw it. None of the architects the author knew from her days in the field fit the bill, most of them were focused on space planning and commercial office design.
