Seems to me this article dangerously blurs architecture and design. They are two related, but wildly different fields. Most notably, the former is highly regulated and requires far more rigorous training and formal education.

Easier said than done. Definitely agree with jpp221. Anyone can be a designer but not everyone can be an architect with a snap of a finger.

Perhaps jpp221 and fabulouslife aren't aware that architects, interior designers and interior architects are trained in overlapping disciplines. We attend universities and certified colleges (quite often the same) to earn our degrees and are regulated by professional associations. Our areas of expertise allow us each in our own field to present esthetic design but also to meet other challenges including anthropometrics, selecting building materials, obeying codes, staying within budgets among many other practical issues included in a residential or commercial project. Our respective educations allows us a specialty. If you are doubtful regarding your design professional, inquire on their credentials.

I typically set the height of the top of vessel sinks at 36", and drop the counter accordingly.
