Decor Inspiration: Studio Space of an Interior Architect

I often find motivation and inspiration by peering into the lives of other like-minded creatives.  With our studio renovations nearly finished and all the smaller details being finalised and installed, I thought I would share Freunde Von Freunden’s write up of an interior architecture firm and their amazing studio space in Kitzbühel, just outside Munich, Austria.

As explained, “The story of Bernd Gruber started long before the man that is its namesake finished his woodworking apprenticeship as one of the youngest master carpenters in Austria. Having taken over his father’s business in 1992, Gruber honed the traditional family operation into an internationally acclaimed bureau that today oversees projects from LA to Vienna and produces quality-oriented designs with the support of its own in-house workshop. “We produce all our design from scratch and are able to quality-control our productions at every step of the way.  Good design must always be consistent with high quality production. We are lucky to have the best people in our workshop, who really understand our concepts and can make them a reality.”

Philipp Hoflehner, creative director at Bernd Gruber Interior Architecture, along with others at the firm draw their inspiration by visiting contemporary and classic furniture and art fairs, and this is then transferred into creative thinking for projects. However, in saying that,  they explain “there comes a point where you no longer need to search for inspiration, because it’s already approaching you.”

Renovation Series: Sneak Peek into Portfolio Design Studio

Hi All,

I hope everyone is having a good week thus far. Ché and myself have been frantic – we are not just working on our clients projects but our own studio/office. I thought that for this weeks post I would share with you “a behind the scenes” at Portfolio.

Last week Wednesday we officially moved into our new studio after we have been waiting anxiously for all the wet work to be completed. We are thrilled to have a bigger space to design. Even though the office is miles away from being complete we have slowly but surely started to decorate. Our wallpaper in currently being installed and our vision of the space is slowly coming to life.

Here are some pictures of the renovations thus far.

…Will keep you posted….
