FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
KP: Of course the creativity and design passion have always been the two major inner trends of us, but this passion was more crystalized by entering the architecture faculty and starting to design numerous projects.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
KP: Actually we have just started our architectural group and now there are only the 3 of us; but we intend to start our own business and company as soon as possible.

FS: What is "design" for you?
KP: This word means a lot for us, including creativity, freedom, joy, happiness, love and above all that, a way in which we can change the world as we think is correct. Design for us, is the only way in which we could present our true insights to the world.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
KP: We mostly like to design public projects; because in such designs, you could feel physically the results of your initial sketches and the different perspectives and criticisms of various people. Public projects are sensitive and demanding, and these are the exact challenges we seek in each design.

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
KP: We believe that always the last is the best, because we achieve the last by the experiences of previous projects; thus, the last one is always the error-less design. So, In our opinion, design field is paving the way of its future involvement with technology and the next generations trends. Art has been integrated with computer science and its unlimited power of creation.the Kerman museum building is our best and most favorite project.

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
KP: Our first design was a private apartment unit which we were asked to design the interior spaces and renovate them.

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
KP: Our most favorite technologies are energy saving ones, such as photovoltaic panels which we have manipulated a lot in our designs. Also we are keen to design projects with wood and metal materials, because they are the most flexible and common materials in the building industry.

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
KP: Frankly, creativity has its own no-time character. It means that it could be at night, morning or just in the middle of your birthday party; so, an architect should always carry his little sketch book in his packet.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
KP: As we all agree, we are living in a technology-based area; thus, we believe that a good design and building is the one with the potential of fulfillment of these technological demands. In that way, we always strive to create a brand new structure or energy saving building ,of course with a nice aesthetical aspect.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
KP: Excitement, joy, happiness, love and passion are the most dominant senses of our design process.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
KP: Glory and satisfaction. It feels just like having the entire world in your hand. It is undoubtedly the nicest feeling for a designer to be recognized in the world.

FS: What makes a design successful?
KP: We design for people, so the success of a project only depends on the level of its users’ satisfaction and sense of convenience.

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
KP: Determining the badness and goodness of a design is a complicated process and could not result a exact determination, but based on some pre-determined standards, fulfilling aesthetical, technological and functional demands of any project, could result in a positive judgment and the lack of those parameters could evolve bad consequences.

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
KP: In the current era, sustainable development of buildings and maximum use of spaces, are the two prominent factors which undoubtedly should be considered. Thus, architects have a unique burden of designing green, highly efficient, outstanding and modern buildings which would shape the future of cities and the character of societies.

FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?

FS: How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
KP: Our utopia is a city with buildings in which people sense the feeling of security and relaxation; the buildings which are exactly fitted to the present era and society trends. We don’t believe in creating masterpieces or shaping the unforeseen future, we believe in the creation of normal, but outstanding projects which evolve with its environment and then become a masterpiece, just because people love them.

FS: Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
KP: Our design process in based on a combination of various factors such as environmental analyzes, society demands, technology, construction process, etc. At first, we just study the entire conditions in any field that effects our project. Then, we start the design process by alternating different combinations and solutions for the existing conditions and finally we choose the best one and further it to transform it to a complete project.

FS: What are 5 of your favorite design items at home?
KP: Pen, eraser and sketch book, which shape the first stage of any design process; laptop and model-making tools are the most beloved components of our design process.

FS: Can you describe a day in your life?
