The Murakami team begins each project with an in-depth understanding of the client’s practical requirements, stylistic preferences and budget parameters. Then, we apply our creative expertise to unite these various factors into a coherent design solution.
“It’s a very delicate balance, says Raymond Murakami. “On one hand, we work from the outside in, developing architectural forms and carefully positioning them on the site. At the same time, we develop the most functional configuration of interior spaces and complete them with an appropriate facade.”
“A home should have its own rhythm, with spaces that naturally lead from large to small, from light to dark. A sense of drama is important, but we consciously avoid being overly theatrical. Whether we’re designing a spacious city home or a secluded family cottage, we understand the subtle pleasures of a breakfast room bathed in sunshine, or a private view of treetops from a bedroom window.”
