INTERVIEW

Andrea Fredriksen BY

Mona Jacobsen

How do you like working for IARK?

Almost as soon as I started I was entrusted with both meetings and projects. I was given plenty of responsibility and the opportunity to work with many varied tasks, also interdisciplinary, which was good for my further training and development. It’s good to work in a creative environment with such varied competence and experience, and very stimulating.

What’s important for you as an interior designer?

Many things, but I believe the most important is to have respect for our clients and users, and this requires good communication and cooperation. Our job is to create good spaces for them, and it is only they themselves who can say whether we have succeeded or not. It’s important to keep an open mind, and be receptive to the client’s needs and requirements. When included in this process the users will identify with the solutions, both functional and aesthetic, and see that their contribution has been fruitful. They will then gladly have a proprietary interest in the project - and I will have done my job.
