I am very excited to introduce another member of the Mezza Team, Welcome Johanne Morin. Johanne specializes in Feng Shui for Architecture and Home Decor. Here is a brief description of who Johanne is and what she does. The Mezza looks forward to seeing future posts from Johanne and her Feng Shui technique.
Johanne Morin is a Graduate of the University of Quebec in Montreal – School of Design with a B.A. in Environmental Design. She is accredited in Advanced Feng Shui for Architecture, Interior Design and Landscape by the Feng Shui for Architecture School of Los Angeles, CA. She is also a certified LEED professional.
Johanne started her career as a project manager for Ivanhoe Cambridge, a renowned global real estate company, focusing on industrial and commercial space planning and design. She then moved on to the role of senior designer and project manager for Bureau Design Inc., Montreal’s most prestigious corporate design firm where she headed office design projects for firms such as CIBC Bank, Scotia Bank, Bombardier, and Harris Corporation amongst others. In 1992, seeking more control over the project and design process, she launched her own interior architecture firm with a focus on personalized and fully customized services for commercial and high-end residential project management, design and space planning. Over time, her company has left its exquisite mark on a wide range of interior projects throughout Montreal QC, and, more recently, NJ shore area, New York City, Coastal Maine, and Atlanta GA.
I approach all my projects with the most advanced procedures and techniques known to the field while also keeping a firm foothold in history. My overarching objective is to methodically recognize my client’s needs, way of life and culture in the design experience. Form, function, light, materials, shape, orientation, color, volume, technology, and socioeconomic requirements are but a few of the factors that come together to define and impact the human experience. In order to improve our quality of life, we need to be more attentive to our existing environment and acknowledge human behavior. I strongly believe that a living space should reflect the personality of the people who live in it while taking into account every other variable.
From contemporary to classical interior styles, I like to conceive unexpected combinations through materiality and architectural details that are not only cutting edge but timeless.
My distinctive holistic approach to interior architecture, is about creating dynamic compositions and incorporate the fundamental elements that will bring balance, harmony, and well-being for the occupants.
