Our artistic process is often reactionary to a building, an architecture, or the vision of the client - and the more extraordinary the cause, the more extraordinary the effect. Reflective Flow for Hitmi Al Hitmi Doha Qatar is aptly named, being reflective of the incredible engineering of the building itself, and part of a flow of inspiration from singular marvel and spectacular whole.

The magic of the extraordinary is found woven throughout the tapestry of ordinary life - magic is what adds that little extra. The original inspiration for the building's striking profile came from a trip to Canada, the designer transfixed by the wonderful geological staging of two rocky outcrops. Our challenge was to draw an inspiration that shared progeny with this vision; to find a compatibility of imagery and theme. Visiting the site, Beau visualised a river between the two rock crags, winding and shimmering, a breakwater against the tectonic forces pulling them apart.

To meet extraordinary challenges, we must apply extraordinary solutions; not to imitate a scene but reflect the sensation of witnessing it – dragging you from waking life to dreamlike suspension. To return us to that moment of wide-eyed awe in the face of nature…to where the ordinary takes on a glow and wonder all of its own.
