‘A pleasant building gives a feeling of warmth and protection.’

A building makes me happy if it gives me the feeling that I can breathe and if it admits plenty of daylight. If the space is well arranged, with natural materials and no frills. A building should ultimately give you a feeling of warmth and protection.

Gaby was working as an assistant secretary at LIAG at the age of 21. After the birth of her first child, she took a job that allowed her to work fewer hours, only to return 25 years later to the place where she herself says she enjoyed her finest working years.
