Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.

Frank Gehry

We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.

Winston Churchill

My buildings will be my legacy... they will speak for me long after I'm gone.

Les Cinq Concept

Humans have five basic senses; studies shows that every thing we experience in our daily lives affect these five senses “sight, sound, taste, smell, and touch” obviously with different percentages and impact which produce the outcome feeling.

Considering this theory while designing, enhances the purpose and outcome of the developed design; how is the sensory environment produced by design can affect the person’s five senses to enhance the sensation of belonging, comfort, harmony, serenity and creativity.

Our mission is to create spaces not only with good visual and functional design but also providing great sensory environment for the existence in this space stimulating the person’s five senses “LES CINQ”.

Sight: The sense of sight is the most obvious and most influenced sense in design; color, shapes and lighting with the perfect balance, contrast and integration can significantly impact the sense of sight.

Hear: The sense of hearing can be affected by the sound of water fountains, birds in landscape spaces, carpet, wooden flooring, and high ceilings affect the sound waves in the room, wind chimes, soft music or even sound insulation.

Taste: The sense of taste may be the least sense directly impacted by design; however, the overall feeling and ambience of the space influence taste and appetite.

Smell: The sense of smell can be stimulated through design by flowers and plants in landscape spaces. Even interior spaces can have the effect of smell of certain quality wood, leather smell, fresh flowers or even a small pot of potpourri and fragrance oils.

Touch: The sense of touch can be stimulated through design by integrating different range of textures and quality of materials.
