Interior Architecture and Design is more than decorating for the team of AB Design Elements. Interior Architecture breathes new life into sullen spaces by transforming dated, average, and empty spaces into artful and unique interiors worth living in and worth inviting others to share with you. We focus on new custom home projects and partial or full remodels that include a comprehensive package of space plans that indicate relocation of walls, lighting plans, kitchen and bath plans and elevations, specifications of fixtures (plumbing and lighting), custom detail sketches, and full detailed spec packages for fabrics, furnishings and accessories.
We are a team
Interior architecture is a collaborative process and the final architectural look requires close coordination with the architect, contractors, and client, particularly to preserve the design intent while staying within budget and schedule constraints. The Interior Architect is the link between the client and contractor and can provide technical drawings and a comprehensive design 'plan' from which to build, as well as style and detail decisions when field conditions require quick solutions.
Clients are consistently pleased with our open communication and ability to find solutions to architectural, interior design and construction challenges. Our most successful projects have been a result of a flexible, creative, and proactive design team made up of the client, the architect, and the contractor(s).
Fusion of Style and Functionality
Effective spaces are often uncluttered, yet layered in their textures and composition, and they are functionally livable. Homes often have long interior ‘viewpoints’ that guide the eye through the space (toward a visual destination) and these are opportunities. A simple art wall at the end of a hall, or a cozy inviting living space, can become visually captivating by ‘framing’ details like a beautifully lit piece of art, a unique architectural ceiling detail, a view of the Sonoran landscape, or varying textures of materials and finishes. When well designed architecture, dynamic lighting, and elegant finishes combine, then the interior works and allows people to be productive, harmonious, and feel 'at home' – from residential to commercial spaces such as an office, a restaurant, or a spa. As well, eco-conscious materials, fixtures and construction practices help a space meet responsible standards that respect the environment. Lighting, sound, air quality, space planning, and architectural design elements promote harmony and balance within a well-designed interior space. In terms of commercial interiors, the physical environment can often determine the financial success and productivity of a public space, so the same principles apply.
We value client relationships, consistent communication, creative collaboration, the power of positive thinking, and the beauty of simple, elegant design.
