Profile description:  

Oana is the driving force behind our boutique London practice, focusing on interior architecture and offering a rare blend of practical, hands-on experience and design flair – where ordinary places are turned into amazing spaces. This applies equally to small and large scale projects and refurbishments, whatever your budget.

Her design philosophy and way of approaching interior architecture puts the client’s dreams and aspirations at the heart of the project. Over the years she has built an extensive portfolio of residential and commercial work following projects from concept stages to completion.

Oana works both as an Architect and Interior Designer and seamlessly blends both disciplines in her approach. She is both member of the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) and BIID (British Institute of Interior Design).

She is happy to discuss your ideas and bring them to life and can offer a range of design packages that is suited to your needs and budget.


Oana on the design

“Marisa and Justin’s penthouse was in an office to residential building conversion and many of the features lacked the warmth of a home – a basic industrial staircase, flooring, etc.

Their aim was to add an extra guest bedroom/study on the ground floor of the apartment by carving into a large and less than functional bathroom.

We moved the boiler/airing cupboard from the bathroom, made room for the guest bedroom and converted the bathroom into a Jack-and-Jill family bathroom with a freestanding bath.

We installed new oak flooring and clad the metal stairs with matching wood treads, installed an open kitchen with waterfall island, a new lighting scheme throughout and created seamless doors to the bathroom and guest room by installing frameless jib doors in the same veneer finish as the walls.”

A happy client…

“Oana was absolutely amazing to work with! Thanks to Oana, we now have a beautifully designed penthouse in Shoreditch. Oana was fantastic from end to end of the project. She patiently helped us plan the project and ensured all technical arrangements highlighted; produced mood boards and clear plans of the project; liaised with our builders; sourced affordable but stylish products; ensured the project was on budget, within timeframes and finalised the project through resolving any snagging items. Oana was a pleasure to work with – we felt like she was part of our family. We recommend Oana 100%!”
