Sinclair is especially poetic in his public musings, citing that to him “beauty is defined as authentic, pure in being, form coming from spirit, expressing one’s nature. Humble but proudly regal”.
You may not know much about Robert Sinclair Associates Architects due to the enigmatic and sleek design of their website, but this firm is one of the top in California, creating beautiful and bespoke homes throughout some of the most exclusive neighborhoods. Behind many of his works appears to be a sincere dedication to design and aesthetics and the need to create useful spaces for clients to live in.
Robert Sinclair seems to draw inspiration and motivation from much of the world’s finest pieces of art, both fine art and poetry. Perhaps he sees the tie between architecture and other forms of art and how storytelling and a strong narrative informs all art.
Sinclair is especially poetic in his public musings, citing that to him “beauty is defined as authentic, pure in being, form coming from spirit, expressing one’s nature. Humble but proudly regal”. Though this may not be the definition you would find in any dictionary, it speaks to how creative, beautiful and truly poetic his designs are as he translates vision, ideas, and beauty into architecture. He also emphasizes how a truly functional object, such as a teapot, can be profoundly, yet simply elegant and beautiful.
Robert Sinclair also has an exceptional eye for detail and can spot it in something as simple as a butter knife or kitchen table. Design, especially when executed for a client, often relies on very small details and how they add up and mesh together. Sinclair is comfortable and confident moving in this space and knows exactly how to construct what his clients are looking for.
As a self-declared, very private individual, Robert Sinclair remains elusive in the design and architecture world, but you can see the wonder of his projects on his website and experience is a unique and beautiful way of looking at the world.
