According to RODE principal, Kevin Deabler, the shifting attitudes towards design lends to a more thoughtful approach. According to Kevin, “we let the buildings slowly tell us what it was and what it needs. There’s no longer the destruction of the tear down and building something new mentality that was prevalent and still is with some construction companies. It is the same with things we buy to furnish our homes, we want something that wasn’t produced so cheaply and so quickly.”
Some design tips Kevin shared with Metro Boston are to opt for conscientious, cost-effective LED lights and also viewing secondhand and reclaimed items as treasures.
