“We are thrilled to have the project recognised in this way. Having already won a number of awards in this category, in previous years, we believe this is a testament to our decision to specialise almost exclusively in the architectural and interior design of high-end water-front villas across the Middle East and Africa. It is a demanding sector, as each home is essentially crafted around our client’s unique aspirations, individual lifestyle requirements and the site specifics, but it is also incredibly rewarding.”


Founder, Andrea Mathison


“Larger design studios often shy away from servicing prestigious home projects, fearing time-consuming, complex details. We don’t. We are rather a small boutique studio who likes to work on a limited number of projects at one time, getting to know our clients and having a profound understanding of their requirements. It is only in this way, I believe, that we can we create real homes. Through our work we are given the opportunity to make a significant difference to the quality of our client’s lives in a very tangible way…. that is something I take very seriously and find very special”


Founder, Claudio Modola
