Founded in 2001, we are London-based designers of buildings, interiors and furniture. Our work varies from designing a one-off piece of furniture to providing a full architectural and design service for the refurbishment of a prime central London property. There are two constants – we are passionate about all aspects of what we do and we work with all our clients to deliver a truly bespoke response to their wishes.

RESIDENTIAL INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN

WE CREATE
CONTEMPORARY
DESIGN RESPONSES
TO OUR CLIENTS’
HOMES AND
THEIR INDIVIDUAL
HISTORIES.

We believe in designing within a framework that honours the heritage of the host building and allows real and conceptual space for our clients’ existing possessions. We provide a holistic design service from shell and core to full interior design and decoration. We’re also happy from time to time to undertake small-scale, decorative projects which we approach with the same attention to detail as we do our large scale work.

Our empathetic approach paired with a full appreciation and respect of clients’ budget constraints has driven high levels of referrals and repeat business.

COMMERCIAL INTERIORS & DECORATION

WE CREATE INTERIORS
TO REFLECT OUR
CLIENTS’ BRAND AND
UNIQUE POSITIONING
IN THEIR MARKET.

We provide either a full interior architecture and design service or work in conjunction with other consultants throughout the project to deliver specific interior decorative elements. Just as an individual has a character and message, so does a business. It is summing this up, adhering to our client’s brief and expressing it in an appropriate visual medium that gives us pleasure and has been so successful. We do not design identikit space: we design to reflect our client’s complex ‘personality’.
