Our interiors are

mesmerising by nature

eccentrically dignified

raw, yet spirited


...though always perfectly fitting into our clients' needs.

Offer

Our company deals with interior design of both private and commercial spaces.

What characterises our work is a holistic approach: we arrange and coordinate each and every stage of our projects, as well as supervise all the assigned tasks at the construction site.

We divide every commission into seven obligatory stages. Our special offer for the busier clients is an optional eighth stage — the ‘turnkey’ development service.

1
NEEDS ANALYSIS

During an extended interview with our clients we get to know about their individual needs, lifestyle, and passions. Together we try to define their stylistic preferences and budget. In case of commercial spaces, we focus on employees’ needs and the context resulting from the location and the target group characteristics.

2
SITE SURVEY

Our deep care for the tiniest details of our designs requires elaborate technical drawings. Because of that we always take precise measurements and carry out photographic documentation of the initial conditions. If the space to be designed is non-existent yet, we rely on the documentation provided by the client.

3
FUNCTIONAL LAYOUT DESIGN

We start designing with spatial planning based on two-dimensional drawings, including walls layout and furniture suggestions. Typically, the client is presented with two different designs to choose from.

4
VISUALISATIONS AND SELECTION OF FITMENTS, FURNISHINGS AND FINISHES

The chosen functional layout is then developed into the form of realistic 3D visualisations. These enable the client to imagine the desired features and functionality of the project in progress. It is at this stage that the colouristic range, fitments, furniture and fittings, together with finishing materials are decided.

5
TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION

The designing process is completed with technical drawings necessary to develop the project. This documentation is crucial for contractors to be able to carry out the project according to our objectives and guidelines. Typically, a comprehensive project contains the following:

  • general construction drawings, including construction, renovation and installation works, e.g. walls demolition and new walls, water supply and sewerage connections, arrangement of sockets and switches, etc.
  • detailed drawings, including construction details, projections, views of walls, and cross sections necessary for various contractors from different trades, like renovation, furnishing, glaziery, ironworking, and upholstery, etc.

6
COST ESTIMATE AND DEVELOPMENT WORKS SCHEDULE

Based on the budget estimated at the initial needs analysis stage we prepare complex cost estimate for a whole project, including prices of fitments, furniture and fittings, construction and renovation works, and the cost of all contractors. Thanks to our permanent cooperation with trusted contractors of different trades we can offer our clients a development works schedule, too.

7
AUTHORS’ SUPERVISION

An integral part of our services is authors’ supervision, which allows us to retain full control of the proceeding construction and finishing works. Our supervisory visits on the construction site provide the highest quality of project development while remaining faithful to the original concept chosen by the clients. We guarantee to refine the slightest features of the project with utmost care, putting the emphasis on precise detail work, which in turn can provide our clients with lifelong satisfaction of unique space, tailored to their needs.

‘TURNKEY’ DEVELOPMENT SERVICE [OPTIONAL]

NOTE: Currently we offer this service only for properties located in Warsaw (Poland) and neighbour cities (<50 km), but we plan to expand to another locations in a short future.

An elaborate version of the authors’ supervision service described above (7th stage) is the so called ‘turnkey’ development service. It is meant for busy clients as well as those appreciating the highest possible quality of project development. Within this service, we take over the client’s role and offer a comprehensive supervision of the project. We coordinate the whole investment: from formal issues to orders and their collection to any type of construction, renovation, and finishing works.

The procedure starts with setting up deadlines and technological solutions with general contracting company and all other involved contractors. Based on those arrangements we work out a detailed works schedule, and we order fitments and furnishings while sticking to the cost estimate prepared earlier. Acting on the behalf of the client we take care of any required permissions for works to run uninterrupted. We are always on the premises at delivery times, and we verify the specification of the supplied goods with the ordered ones.

After completing the construction and detail work, we arrange the standalone furniture according to the project and we make sure the space is cleaned up and prepared to be moved in by our clients.

About

We believe in modern spatial forms, sophisticated in terms of detail, and filled with natural high-class materials. This attitude determines our designing style.

We create thought-provoking interiors, which inspire and sensitise.

We share our knowledge, so that more people can distinguish a misplanned interior from a progressive space, tailored to their real, evolving needs.

Karolina Krawczyk _ interior architect

She stays faithful to a simple rule: there is no architecture without an interior, and vice-versa. She strongly believes that an interior should always correspond to and esteem the facility it complements. She is not afraid of radical transformations of spaces, when the original context doesn’t seem legitimate.

A co-founder of KANDO_ARCHITECTS studio and a graduate of Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Faculty of Interior Architecture. Also, graduated from Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology in Warsaw, Faculty of New Media Arts, major in Interior Architecture. She has gained her experience in renowned interior and architectural design studios in Munich and Warsaw.
