Purist Parisian

Pierre Yovanovitch designs by the philosophy that fads are best to be avoided with the result that his projects produce an “architectural presence that gracefully avoids both complication and ostentation.” This recently completed apartment on Paris’s Left Bank is a true representation of this with the clean lines, custom furniture and honest approach to the buildings original character giving the space a timeless appeal.

Brand Essence

Sperry Top-Sider has a classic American style that mixes fashion and function perfectly.  Their footwear is a symbol of classic "preppy" style and are worn by people all around the globe. Recently the brand redesigned their stores resulting in an interior we believe is a great example of a space that evokes the true essence of its brand!

At the outset O+A surveyed Meraki’s employees to find out what they liked about their old, much smaller headquarters. Maintaining Meraki’s cozy ambience in the hangar-sized complex proved...

Singapore Studio

In the midst of summer and the oppressive heat that goes with it, I look to any place for cool refuge and in this project by 0932 Design Consultants I think I have found just that. The studio apartment, in Singapore, is a study in clean lines, calm spaces and refined living. The colour palate swings from cool greys to warm neutrals with the furniture...

distinctly American

The colors, materials and spare lines reflect the client’s personal style. As the client desired,...
