All projects begin with location as climate and context impact everything. We have an obligation to understand where we’re building and this means research. Buildings and sites are synonymous; a building should be of its place. Interior design is an integrated pursuit – a building interior must be in harmony with the over-arching framework. Furniture must bridge the gap between the environment and the user and, ultimately, we design for users.
Roll over each work type for more info.
We work with our clients towards the creation of projects that achieve all programmatic requirements and are created with an integrity of vision that surpasses simple design service to achieve a true goal-driven project. We design for humans, and listen to the stakeholders – whatever their position in the company.
To speak of interior design as something distinct from architecture is simply nonsense. There must be continuity, and shared language (structure, materials) between building shell and building interior. New and existing buildings afford wonderful opportunities to unite architecture at different scales and provide unified, but also unique design solutions.
Our sense of place in the world is commanded by our relationship with the built environment. Site, landscape and the wider urban context provide the framework for our lives. Connecting projects to this context is essential to their success, and ultimately the success of the user.
Furniture fills the spaces we design and is integral to the experience of the user, since it’s the part of the project people physically interact with the most. We consider it our responsibility to ensure this aspect of the experience is continuous with the project vision, but also the right fit for the user. Cool is, well, cool, but functionality is cooler!
At Blitz, it’s the project that goes in the middle, not our egos. We strongly encourage all those involved in the project to make decisions solely based on what is best for the project.
Churning out what you’ve always done won’t just yield the same results, it will leave you and your project behind in an ever changing world. We find it irresponsible not to try things simply because you haven’t done them before. Furthermore, though we appreciate the compliment, you don’t want what we did last year because we’re already doing something better, more efficient and more effective.
Less can actually be more. Really! The key is knowing what to edit to bring out the essence of a project while not devaluing it’s spirit. We believe in smaller footprints and higher quality. What does luxury mean anyway? It’s more than just name and hype, more than just a price tag or a status symbol. It’s about quality, function, and well-being.
It’s about making the most of what you’ve got and celebrating a good idea. That’s where we come in. We’re here to help you realize your dreams – and if you’re not quite sure what they are yet, we’ll help you with that too. And do it sustainably, which means more than just ‘green.’ It means economy + value. It means being adaptable and re-using buildings, materials, even good ideas.
It also means being future-ready, looking beyond the immediate to the needs of tomorrow. We’ll look for ways to maximize the impact of your project, while minimizing the impact on your budget and the environment.
Spaces, systems, and materials are considered in that order. But before we get to that, we want to know the basics: We’ll talk budgets and we’ll discuss image and atmosphere, and probably end up branding the whole experience if you’ll let us. And we’ll have some fun along the way.
