The core values of our practice - openness to new ideas, continued design education and contribution to the lives of those we work with. Design is a way to live in the real world, to think about our needs and translate them into an environment that is authentic and enduring. It takes curiosity and courage to explore what is really important to us and live by that standard. Our work shows the brave and committed process of our clients to create an environment that reflects their personal values.
After studying design and branding at Brunel University, London and receiving a degree in industrial design from San Francisco State, founder Claudia Mahecha began working for B&B Italia at Limn in San Francisco. Working in interiors using European design developed a passion for creating spaces that integrate many styles, using furniture made with care and with a mindfulness of global manufacturing issues. Later, working with Nasir Kassamali at Luminaire inspired a desire to give clients the best care and attention possible without compromising on design.
Today, Claudia leads design for The Residents as a collaborative team in public and private spaces, always with a focus on the client. Looking from the clients unique perspective gives us the ability to tell their story and guide them through all aspects of the design process. It is not about the things we have in our lives, but about the care we put into each decision.
