Architecture & Interior Design
There exists a very powerful relationship between interior design, architecture and art, which historically was a little blurred. At Designed by Woulfe, although we are primarily interior designers, we possess the necessary technical competencies to alongside the world's leading architects. Together we create breathtaking, fluid and functional spaces for our clients who range from celebrities to leaders in their field, residential homeowners to property investors and developers. As the architecture of your property - or the property you intend to purchase - will largely dictate certain design elements, we work with you to reimagine spaces and execute precise renovations, on time and on budget. Our property procurement team are available to consult on your ideal architectural style - be it an elegant Georgian terrace, a quaint country farmhouse or an exquisitely dreamy multi-million-pound mansion. For investors and developers, we know time is money so we will quickly identify any structural issues, safety, environmental and planning considerations. Subsequently, in collaboration with surveyors and building consultants, our team can implement striking staircase designs, mezzanine floors, and upgrade doors, windows and architectural hardware to match the property's character and intended usage.
