WHAT WE DO
A design practice based of architects, landscape designers and interior designers offering solutions made to measure.
Before the design, our involvement begins from the client’s business plan and decision making involving consultation.
Total design, for us, is a combination of architectural – interior and landscape design; during the creative development of each project we care about every single detail. Our knowledge on cutting-edge materials and design techniques are our strong point; We find it essential for every project to develop its special character.
Construction monitoring is of major importance to us. We check all material-related orders and make all necessary adjustments. Full-scale project management and supervision guarantee a good result.
We build exactly what we design, on a certain predetermined budget and timeframe.We offer construction management, supervision and project monitoring services.
Each project is delivered after a thorough check; a set of separate certifications are made for every work and construction phase.
HOW WE DO IT
Our designs care for both durability and flexibility. They are based on a certain realistic budget and time frame for better sustainability and money-saving solutions.
Strategy – Design quality
Discussion with both client and operator is essential in order to form an efficient design strategy and a general decision making plan. For us, each project is unique and has its own aesthetic quality.
Good design starts with a clear concept and developed with its own style. We design for people and create spaces that become an enjoyable, delightful living experience made to measure.
Realization and brand promotion
Every project has to be recognizable and unique. We care about brand identity in hospitality and commercial projects, and aim for the best way to promote them. Design is always related to brand identity – before we start the design we carefully discuss about the project’s promotion. In our projects, we insist on:
- Flexibility in due time.
We do not design only for “now” but for “tomorrow” as well. Close attention to construction monitoring and supervision ensures the best possible result.
When design implementation takes place, we aim to come up with an even better result than the one expected.
Our renderings, both hand-made and computer generated are always precise and based on real materials and dimensioning – until now all our projects look even better than the preliminary drawings and design – the secret behind is our constant involvement with the construction process.
