Kirsh Design The Culture Chronicles

When Autumn Comes Around 🍁 🍂🍃

October 3rd, 2019

As the last days of summer fade away, we look forward to the glorious display of the autumn leaves, Mother Nature's most beautiful palette. Gold and amber, chestnut and wine, she inspires us and fills our senses with many tones and textures. With the anticipation of colder days, we seek inspiration - it is a part of being human.

These days, my inspiration comes from the brave and passionate 16-year-old, Greta Thunberg, sharing her climate change message across the globe - a plea to save mother earth. How can anyone not feel inspired by her crusade and her accomplishments? Greta Thunberg is my hero, and I know I am not alone.

She represents the power of one - impacting the collective, raising hope, and empowering our youth to understand their great potential to influence change. She challenges us all to do better and to be better. 

I often speak about our philosophy of Community. The power of Community has always strongly resonated with me. My grandparents arrived in Canada 100 years ago, seeking a better future for their children. They did not speak English and had very few resources. However, they did have a vision for a brighter future and a Community that would help them land on their feet. My life is the direct result of their sacrifice, and I hold this in my heart.

When I say that, at Kirsh Design, we value Community and that it is a part of each project - for me, that seed was planted 100 years ago. Kirsh Design operates from a place of creating Community. With Clients as our co-pilots, we build our spaces by collaborating with great people, architectural and engineering consultants, valued suppliers, and contractors. I love working in unison for a common goal, sharing and learning from each other, bringing our unique perspectives and depth of knowledge to co-create spaces where people can excel and thrive.

I have had the privilege of meeting and working with exceptional people who inspire me to do better and be better (as though my bar wasn't already high enough thanks to my parents). Listen to our Clients tell their story of how we work together as a community to co-create the remarkable.

If this message resonates, feel free to share with those seeking to impact their work environment and build their Culture of Community - or, send them our way. Let's inspire each other to make a difference as we marvel at the beauty of the autumn leaves.
