“One of my key business visions is founded on developing a solid relationship with my clients. By sharing a mutual Trust and Respect for each other we can achieve a great deal together and make projects an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. My design collaborator’s and I are dedicated to offering each client the highest level of professionalism and production” Guido Maclellan
We do it because we love designing.
More with Less. A design philosophy that requires rigorous self discipline, clarity and maturity from the designer and the committed belief of the client.
I believe in trying to achieve more with less by designing in a simple, beautiful and functional manner. This is not an easy ambition to fulfil. It requires time, investment (emotional and financial) from the Architect,Client and ultimately the Contractor to come close to this vision.
A passionate and skilful designer still requires the support and belief in the concept from their client. We have been fortunate to have clients that trust our ability and share this vision.
My co designers and I understand that good design and high quality craftsmanship can truly inspire people, improve their daily lives and increase their sense of well being.
