ARCHITECTURE

In order to achieve a fully integrated design, the architecture of Ezequiel Farca + Cristina Grappin is defined by its linear, geometric and clean forms. Applied to a small scale, it adapts materials and textures to suit each area of the client’s space, adapting them to the needs and tastes of the client from the exterior to the smallest interior detail.

The processes developed over the course of the project encompass every aspect in order to ensure the completed work of architecture is ready to be inhabited.

The added value of these spaces emerges when it reflects the same level of detail in the furnishings as in the architecture. The result is a work of architecture that improves people’s quality of life through design.

INTERIOR DESIGN & FURNITURE

Our interior designs are a vibrant refuge, places of social encounter and warm surroundings that generate harmony and vitality through design.

The indoor spaces, finishes and furniture complement each other in an interesting range of colors, materials, forms, textures, lights and shadows, which keep its internationally-recognized style. Thanks to the studio’s expertise in furniture, they design especially for its clients in order to adapt them to a high quality in interior design

It is very important for the firm to deliver a comprehensive project and to cover every last detail, that is, to offer turnkey delivery: a space that is ready to live in, meaning clients have nothing to worry about and enjoy an improved experience.
