The design and decorative scheme of each project is as much a response to the architecture and context of the building as the way a client wishes to live their life. As such, there is no ‘house style’ and all our projects are different.
Particular emphasis is placed on a sympathetic use of colour, an eclectic aesthetic that often includes both antiques and modern furniture and, most importantly, comfort for the client. A great effort is taken to create natural-looking spaces with stylistic flair that do not feel over-designed.
Initially, we work very closely with the client on the architectural plans and detailing in order to ensure the spaces function harmoniously. In order to achieve this, comprehensive architectural drawing packages are prepared by our drawing studio using CAD software, combined with traditional hand drawings and painted gouache elevations. The drawing package will include every design aspect of a project from detailed plans and elevations to full size technical drawings for detailed cabinetry and custom-designed furniture.
Collaboration and quality of workmanship are extremely important to the practice. We work with highly skilled cabinetmakers, upholsterers, curtain makers, artisans and artists where each detail is considered carefully.
The practice most often works as part of a larger design team, and has extensive experience in working with many and varied architectural practices worldwide, as well as the specialist consultants associated with such projects.
