Use your skills to the limit and take the risks you would be willing to assume for your own house and from your own pocket. Defend what is necessary for yourself and do not take the needs or customs of the client lightly. Try to make the standards compatible with common sense and die the unexpected a chance. Do not stigmatize the users nor insist on leaving your mark. Do not see yourself as a victim. If you believe in the dense city, make every dwelling a desirable home.
