DETAILED AND RESOLVED At Smart Design Studio our architecture is inspired by pure Modernism, but believe not that “form follows function” so much as “form has a function.” Our forty-five plus team all design with rigour, but we find that applying layers of significance, embedding hidden meaning and building up surface texture adds poetry to the finished design, be that of a multi-storey building or the interior of a private home. While we have a recognizable signature, each new project presents a new set of opportunities to make the most of the site in question and harness them to the personalities and requirements of our clients. To achieve this, we work from the macro to the micro, from the entirety of the overall structure, right down to the hinges on doors, millimetre-precise joinery or the colours on bedroom walls. Our role is to provide a unique solution that responds to our clients’ vision of their interior. From the exterior, we believe buildings have a duty to contribute positively to the public domain, and have a responsibility to respect the environment in which they sit, both in an immediate visual sense and with regard to sustainability, in its broadest, most nuanced understanding. We accomplish this by employing the latest technology, coupling that with the art of light, outlook, interior well-being and the craft of building. Buildings are best when they work effortlessly for the passerby and are at the same time intensely engaging to their occupants: we aspire to create both. In essence, the Philosophy of Smart Design Studio’s architecture can be summed up in three words: Excellence. This means quality of design and construction that is well above average. Innovation. The constant drive to push the parameters, to invent new solutions and embrace state-of-the-art technology. Collaboration. Intra-studio, of course, but also with builders, consultants, approval authorities and, most importantly: the client.
