5 Minutes with Pierre-Yves Rochon Tell us a little about your background in design (education, experience, etc) I have been practicing architecture and design since September 1968 (45 years), and worked in almost every area (corporate, residential, hospitality, temporary scenography, furniture design, lighting design, and place settings). How would you describe your personal design style? Timeless, elegant, refined, with a tremendous amount of attention paid to detail. Where does your design inspiration come from? My inspiration comes from leading a simple life, and being curious about everything.

Information technology, lighting and control systems, as they are all becoming as much a part of the architecture as their primary function; and with the continuous introduction of new materials, as well as the modification and repurposing of traditional materials, material selection is essential. The evolution of habits and customs of people is also important to consider, especially in terms of space planning. For example, the open kitchen concept is very common now, while it used to be located in the basement not long ago; the same goes for bathrooms, their sizes continue to increase. If you could offer one piece of advice when it comes to design, what would it be? Think first, and remain simple.
What are your aims and goals for the next twelve months? I dream to develop and create unique new projects. Final thoughts; tell us a little more about yourself: Your most treasured possession?
