At Design SI, we approach your ideas with an imaginative blend of design style and modern convenience.

Each project is unique, resulting from a close collaboration between you and Design SI. We strive to create thoughtful spaces with innovative forms, copious details and timeless materials. We hope to project an outlook based on principles as universal as possible, producing spaces using the latest and most relevant products and methods that are real and utilitarian, for everyone. With Design SI, you become part of an exciting process – the art of making your dream space come to life.

How We Think

Our approach is based on direct experience. Our work incorporates an explorative design methodology with sustainable programming and practices– it is our way of approaching an idea, from inside to outside. Using both traditional and alternative materials, we aspire to produce wonder and beauty within each project’s design potential. We believe design is bound to a situation within the rituals and activities of a place. Our design process centers on the use and appreciation of materials native to the region, all hand-picked and inspected for quality to ensure the best value for the client. We are sensitive to cultural forms and customs, all to imbue the project with the quality of “fitting” in its context as we intertwin idea and function, our hope is to combine making and meaning with efficiency and precision. Working with the finest materials, shaped with intense skill and craftsmanship, we hope to project an outlook that is both holistic and integrated, a design that is based on principles that are as universal as possible while simultaneously producing space and objects that are real,utilitarian, and up-to-date with the latest trends and technology.

What we do

We are committed to the idea that design is a problem solving process; a craft in the service of a program towards the needs of our clients. While many designers are known for a particular “signature style”, we believe that a project should be a reflection of its owner and its context, not the personal taste of the designer. We have labored extensively to be responsive to each and every one of our clients and to each project on our client’s own terms, rather than from a preconceived viewpoint or our own aesthetic agenda. Our attention to detail and eye for design ensures an enjoyable design experience. Part of our effort to respond individually to each client’s need has involved the goal of ridding ourselves of a repetitive personal style and a self-consciousness of “our signature” design. Here at Design SI, we are committed to the idea that design is actually a problem solving process. Every detail, from the accessories, furnishings, and artwork, to the millwork, lighting and systems, are all designed to complement one another while fulfilling the overall objectives of the assignment. We have an emphasis in the idea of crafting ideas that works only towards the needs of our clients. Design SI is dedicated to providing you, the potential client, with a level of service through an extensive collaborative design process that is unmatched anywhere else in the North State.
