Commerical vs. Residential

Designing for commercial and residential is so different even when the mediums are still the same, whether it’s  fabrics, case goods, and so on. I presented a lobby design yesterday for a potential commercial Manhattan project. To this day, I am still surprised to see how different it is. The concerns are more about functionality instead of aesthetics. The decision making is quick and nonemotional. It’s not about egos or insecurities; it’s about the bottom line and how soon the project can get done. Don’t get me wrong, it’s wonderful to work on residential jobs. Residential jobs allow me to introduce clients to a new place of freedom regardless of budget. The sense of accomplishment is changing the way people live their lives through design environments.  What’s your experience from commercial compared to residential?
