Good design brings together many aspects at the same time and resolves them.   These aspects include sensitivity to the broader context, concerns about sustainability, meeting functional needs while providing a degree of flexibility,  keeping the user or residents health and well-being in mind,  quality construction, and being of its “time and place.”   Normally good design embodies an idea of simplicity and economy of resources.  In other words,  nothing can be added or subtract from a design to make it better.
