Last month, the office submitted a proposal for an ice cream shop concept:
Unfortunately, our prospective client decided not to move forward with the project. Although the company claimed to be interested in an architecturally striking, vibrant, and adventurous space, they found our proposal to be too architectural. (?!) Furthermore, they were disturbed by our use of floor and wall tiles. (Apparently, tiles of any kind—large or small, neutral or colorful—call to mind bathroom interiors. I see where they were coming from, but I think we could have negotiated on that part of the concept.) Oh well—on to the next!
