My husband and I hired Bureau No1 for a design of our new apartment. Lena listens carefully to all clients’ needs and then gives design solutions which are unprecedented. Her architectural academic training in both architecture and interior design makes her a truly unique professional who knows how to calibrate the two. Highly recommend!

From start to finish, Bureau was a pleasure to work with. My wife and I needed some professional hand in understanding the framework and timeline for remodeling our townhouse. Lena took the direction of our project under control, guided us through the unknowns of design and made the whole process absolutely stress free.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Depending on a project, the process may vary from a consultation to full range of services. The full range includes five stages: STAGE 1: CONSULTATION The consultation determines a scope of work to be designed and sets the tone for design during which a clear vision of a client's requirements, style, budget and timeline are established. STAGE 2: DESIGN CONCEPT This is a schematic design phase which renders a project direction. It includes moodboards, photo collages and color compositions. STAGE 3: DESIGN DEVELOPMENT The design development phase includes space planning. The scope of it depends on a project. For example, in a restyling project planning defines demolition and construction of new walls. Electrical, plumbing, lighting, window & door systems may also come into play. STAGE 4: CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS This phase renders two complete sets of drawings provided to a client. The drawings fill in all the details and elements of design. STAGE 5: THE EXECUTION AND INSTALLATION This is the construction contract administration and supply phase which encompasses site visits, material testing, logistics of shipping, furniture installation and object placement.
