Interior & Architectural Design
Atelier Racine is a young multi-disciplinary practice with a focus on human centric design, beautiful craftsmanship and sustainability. We believe successful design is all about people. From the hand sketching initial ideas to the hand installing the final piece, circling back to the person for whom the space was conceived. Each space, wether it is RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL or HOSPITALITY is created with carefully researched and curated design process which allow us to found the best solution for the project. It is all about people.
We love craftsmanship, noble materials and handmade products and try to source as locally as possible to champion local craftsmanship. It also allow us to follow the process closely and for the client to feel more in touch with each piece being created for them. and reduce carbon footprint. However we have wonderul contact in Europe, especially France, and we are able to value engineer any project to make it a effecient and value for money whilst still keeping a sustainable approach. Each project is unique, so is our approach.
We believe each project has its own narrative, a story which must be told and therefore we focus on creating a unique language rather than imposing a particular house style. This language appears along the design process through and is the result of close collaboration with clients and will become the voice and identity of the space.
Telling this story is not just about fulfilling the brief but essentially serve the person who will use the space. Whether it is a private house, a shop or a restaurant, the design will only be successful if it works well for all the people who will use the space, whether they live, work or visit the space. We also like to look ahead and imagine how the space might evolve, as the story unfolds, and we always allow a certain amount of flexibility so the design can allow changes. Although we prefer noble durable materials we acknowledge and like to play with more easily changeable materials in strategice use, to serve the person who will use the space. Whether it is a private house, a shop or a restaurant, the design will only be successful if it works well for all the people who will use the space, whether they live, work or visit the space.
Our approach to design is simple. We believe the space must put forward the ultimate experience. Layers building sensary experience creating a unique and tangible atmosphere which will make people fall in live with the space. We believe a good space is not only a visual experience but must engage and please all senses so the client can appropriate the space, feel at home or wanting to visit, shop time and time again, just because the space feels like theirs. It is all about connecting the dots, collaborating with talents, bringing to life the best possible design for our clients. We thrive on challenges as it pushes us to find new creative path, discover new materials & techniques whilst being supported by our trusted & valued list of suppliers, craftsman and collaborators.
We embrace all aspect of the design process, from providing conceptual design consultancy to be fully involved and project manage.
