MARTHA STURDY - As a very young child, around the age of five or six, I loved to spend hours outside creating elaborate structures in the dirt. I would design houses and cityscapes, and sculpt them out of whatever modest materials my yard had to offer.

MARTIN LAWRENCE-BULLARD - My first design experience on a professional level was when I was 18 my sister and I decided to open a unisex designer fashion store called Temptation. I had always loved interior design so my sister looked to me to design the 2 floor shop. I chose to tent the ladies floor in cream Irish muslin and had hand wrought iron rails made to display the clothing. For the mens floor I had it paneled in walnut and a 19th century row boat hung from the ceiling.

LORENZO CASTILLO – I used to design for my own pleasure since my youth. Design has always given me a very unique pleasure. Perhaps my first experience with relevance was the design of the LOEWE shops for the LVMH group.
