B City: What big idea do you believe in that keeps you inspired?
HS: Passion! The fundamentals of classic design can be applied anywhere in the world. A solid understanding of these principles and elements make every project, large or small, significant and a challenge. Combining these fundamentals with the client’s wishes, the architecture and the topography makes every project unique in itself. With this in mind, you never do the same project twice. It is this excitement that makes me enjoy going to the office every single morning.
B City: What is the greatest pleasure of being your own boss?
HS: Working together with people fromdifferent backgrounds and cultures who have dreams they would like to realize. I enjoy creating lifestyles. I enjoy being able to extract these desires and wishes and then through the design process, bringing their dreams to fruition through a construction process.
B City: What is the biggest pain of being your own boss?
HS: There is a misconception that if you own your own business, you work less. The reality is that you work much harder and you have a continued vested interest. When you choose a career path that you love, your passion for this activity can easily take over your life and cause you to focus only on work.
B City: What continues to inspire you to keep working in business for yourself?
HS: I’m inspired by the opportunity to continue to work with new people on new projects. Coming up with creative new ideas and approaches, which requires unique problem solving techniques.
B City: How do you keep motivated?
HS: It is easy. I love what I do!
