Common thread in successful projects:
Regardless of aesthetics, our core focus is always on spatial planning – ensuring that the spaces are very fluid to serve the needs of the occupants well. We let the architecture informs the space itself. If a residence boasts tall ceilings, we would explore ways in crafting an interesting interior space with that height, so the eventual form feels like it’s part of the orginal architecture. Functional elements like storage and carpentry works are also regarded as part of the architecture, in which all elements of design are never conceived purely for decorative purposes, but integrated as an all-encompassing design solution.
Lessons from 2020:
The unprecedented times gave us the opportunity to take on small scale projects that may have not been viable previously, as a lot of our time as a small design outfit was dedicated to medium and large scale projects. In a way, it gave us more room to be experimental and in turn, elevated our design.
We see a shift from clean, minimalist design to modern classic and coastal chic where details – not necessarily overly ornate – are celebrated. An appreciation for how things are constructed substantiates how interior and architecture are interlinked through details to fabricate an expressive home.
