John Florian Koncar Interiors
One should view this book as an illumination on what happens when a personal fantasy meets a talented interpreter, the architect. The fact that these are all custom built environments make them individual to those for whom they were built...not necessarily the viewer/reader. It's also difficult to judge any of these products solely on an image published in a book, as might be true of ANY project shown in this site. Custom work is about satisfying the needs and functional requirements of the user, the particulars of the site, the orientation to the environment and many other factors, not least of all the clients' desire for the unique and to live in a piece of art.
