How we work: In full collaboration with our clients to achieve their homes and dreams. While the emphasis is always on achieving a very high quality of design, our starting point has always been to listen to our clients requirements, to interpret their needs and suggest solutions. The practice is bi-lingual with a very divers clientelle – British, American, German, Danish etc. as well as French, and hence a wide range of cultural needs and desires.
