Architectural design is the core of Scarpidis Design. Our team is driven by the passion to understand our clients and their space through our vision of translating experiences through details based on our client’s dreams. Our goal is to build custom luxury environments that function specifically to the needs of our clients.
Scarpidis Design provides interior planning/design and refurbishment. Every project’s aesthetic emanates from close collaborative relationships with each client in order to achieve optimal results. There is no surface or element within a project we work on that we do not implement our combined design aesthetic.
The Scarpidis team designs furniture for its clients in order to create a distinctive style that expresses their personal environment and crafts experiences that people fall in love with. We create fully immersed designs that tell a consistent story throughout the interior journey. We are currently creating our own line of furniture in conjunction with our made to measure custom pieces.
Nothing changes the feel and atmosphere of a built space more dramatically than lighting. Thus, the Scarpidis team works with lighting technicians and designers in order to create lighting schemes which will optimize our client’s personal environments. Simultaneously we are also designing our own light fixtures that add an element of design even when the lights are off.
