Are you looking for specialists for a
- New build
- Full home transformation
- Large house extension
- Difficult or complex project?
Do you want a team you can rely on who know the process inside out and can see the details as well as the big picture?
We don’t stop at the walls on your project.
We are a boutique architectural and interior design studio that blurs the lines between architecture and interior design. We take time to make sure we understand the end goals of your project and we ensure that no opportunity is missed due to the separation of professions.
We have the skills that transcend the stop-lines and the years of experience on a huge variety of projects, worldwide to ensure you get that dream home, no matter the complexity.
Have you ever extended your home believing that your architect would think of everything, then got disappointed when you were left with lighting and sockets in the wrong position because the furniture layouts weren’t thought out?
Or have you ever hired an interior designer, then thought after the project was finished, “what a missed opportunity, I wish we had thought about extending, rather than working with the space we had”?
Architects are not interior designers and interior designers are not architects. These are two very separate professions that both usually stop at the walls on your project. We blur the lines between architecture and interiors making sure that you get everything you asked for, without the compromise (and that doesn’t mean high costs, it’s just creative thinking, exceptional knowledge and great design).
We have the solutions for the most complex projects and the ability to carry your project through, from concept to completion.
