Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.
Art Critic, born February 8, 1819
We create homes that are truly handcrafted, where our clients will live life, love and laugh. It is our privilege and great responsibility to design such intimate and personalised spaces to be enjoyed in the company of friends, family and loved ones. How we achieve such exceptional results is underpinned by our approach to design.
Teamwork & Trust
A safe pair of hands
“He’d fly through the air with the greatest of ease, that daring young man on the flying trapeze.” So goes a lyric dedicated to the French acrobat, Jules Leotard.
Ambitious acts succeed when teams trust in the hands they’re holding. Our clients trust us to deliver their projects, because our open book management allows complete transparency and control over their investment. It is it what enables exceptional quality and value in procurement and assures our clients of an exceptional project outcome, by all definitions.
Size doesn’t matter
From la grande maison to a pied à terre
In the world of architecture and luxury interiors, projects of different size and scale are equally worthy of inspirational design and meticulous attention to detail. Previous clients have come to us with a range of briefs and requirements, from small apartments and town houses to large country mansions. The commonality between our projects is never their scale, but the degree of consideration, refinement and luxury that goes into each design.
In the same way the bald eagle is one of the largest and most majestic birds to grace the skies, the hummingbird measuring a mere three inches is equally impressive, beating it’s wings a remarkable fifty times per second.
Style & Convention
A diverse approach to design
French impressionist and abstract expressionist, Claude Monnet and Jackson Pollack epitomise the breadth that exists in personal taste. What one observer finds pleasing, another finds too literal or unreal. Indeed, “painting is self-discovery“ said Jackson Pollack.
Similarly our work is a reflection of who our clients are and how they wish to live, a canvas for life’s brush strokes, as diverse as each of them. Sometimes bold and dramatic; other times subtle and sensitive.
From classical orders to modern and vernacular styles, our multi-culturally diverse team is adept across them all and experienced, able to challenge convention when there is opportunity to deliver something exceptional without exception.
Attention To Detail
Detail is design
In 1961 famed furniture designers Charles and Ray Eames, scripted the importance of details in design. Together they outlined how the details of a design, aren’t simply the details, they are the design.
Imbued with these seminal ideas, we’ve learnt to pay particular attention to the detail of our work, because it’s what makes the design truly unique – like the intricacies of a snowflake – never to be repeated. Whether we’ve commissioned a master craftsman to produce bespoke cabinetry for a child’s play room or detailed a bathroom skirting in bespoke marble for an absolutely perfect finish. It is always our promise to deliver a truly exceptional design that is bespoke to the requirements and tastes of each of our clients.
