WE LISTEN

Each project is unique so we invest time from the start to understand the client in an open and honest way. The initial contact is the platform upon which we start to create the bigger picture. We spend time connecting with the client to take ownership of aspirations, lifestyle, architecture and culture, and use this to inspire our story to life. 

“Engagement, ideas, suggestions and influences from the client fuel our ability and creativity to reach a unique language.”

Nicolas Roux

 

 

OUR TAILORED SOLUTION

We set about creating a design narrative that is born from originality and individuality. We shape our entire approach around the client and will propose a bespoke solution relevant to the project, not something cookie-cut. We don’t just do design, we have a holistic approach and can provide clients with a budget programme and feasibility study – all the relevant information required to progress. This empowers our clients to make informed decisions and feel connected to the project. 

“The details are not the details. They make the design.”

Charles Eames

 

 

OUR EXPERT NETWORK

We are connected to the finest craftspeople around the UK and the world. We build teams of specialised partners with a reputation for excellence in their field, and only recommend professionals that we trust and who share our standards and ethics. This establishes consistency and continuity throughout the process. It also means that we can focus on delivering a product of the highest quality. 

“It takes extreme skill and a deep-rooted understanding of the material to realise a bespoke piece.”

Nicolas Roux

 

 

THE RIVE GAUCHE WAY

We believe that design isn’t about producing a set of drawings and handing it over to a contractor to realise. We pride ourselves on our hands-on attitude and holistic approach, taking ownership of projects to help clients take ownership of their vision. From design, interior architecture, procurement and co-ordination, to budgeting and establishing a programme, we oversee and implement every aspect of the work. This is the most productive, efficient and cost effective way to deliver a project of superior quality and enable the client to make the most informed decisions, every step of the way.
