MSA founder/Principal Syed Fawad Hussain’s Interview conducted by Guri Kelkar from Architectural Digest. Gauri Kelkar (GK): Could you let me know your vision for the house? Was there a very specific brief? Syed Fawad Husain (SFH):The initial brief from the client was really brief in the true sense of the word, providing only the number of bedrooms required. But I always believe that asking questions and more importantly right questions is the key to any successful consultancy. So my first step towards designing a ‘dwelling’ is always a complete understanding of the occupant’s needs and cultural expectations.
