LIVE interior architects and interior designers
LIVE has a team of interior architects and interior designers, who have international training and experience



Characterised by creativity and balanced by functionality, we provide innovative design solutions in all the services we offer, from complete refurbishment and brand identity development to interior decoration of individual rooms, space planning, bespoke furniture, as well as bathroom and kitchen design.

We are a close-knit team of designers who direct and execute interiors and environments from brief through to build. We believe that each space we design should be unique to you - the client.

Our work seeks to achieve this individuality, to meet your aspirations, and to harmonise with the architecture of the building.

We are happy to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team with other professionals.

We offer a no obligation first meeting which is free of charge.
