'We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us'.

We believe that design creates the world we live in and changes the lives we lead.  The environments we immerse ourselves in impact our happiness, our well-being and our souls.  What we surround ourselves with affects who we are, how we feel and who we want to be. 

Our aim is simple: make the world a more beautiful, more intriguing, more rewarding place, one building, one room, one light bulb at a time.
