At the very core, we want to create spaces that are thoughtful, meaningful and relevant.
Every project has a story waiting to be told. Inspiration comes in many forms: from the clients, their lifestyles and beliefs; the raw space, its surroundings and history; the materials, their origins and potential… there’s so much more!
Passion for design:
In interior design, we love the ability to dream; the challenges of translating that dream into something pragmatic and functional, and the pure joy of seeing the end result that’s real, tangible and alive.
“Design is problem-solving. A good designer should – pragmatically – have a critical mind, an eye for detail, and at a more visceral level, a distinctive problem-solving viewpoint and aesthetic.”
– Dennis Cheok, Creative Director
