Built on a passion for design and style.

About

At Jigsaw we provide unparalleled service to our clients, helping them to fully realise the potential of their commercial, residential and domestic spaces.

Jigsaw’s mantra is to treat each new project as an individual entity, providing fresh perspective to each concept design. We design intuitive, aspirational, sympathetic interiors underpinned by a flexible, human-centric and holistic approach. This enables us to understand the widest possible context and attend to the smallest of details because we believe that the spaces people inhabit have a direct bearing on the quality of their lives. Guided by this principle, we strive to elevate everyday experiences by creating environments that exceed the standards of modern living.

Jigsaw is a leading Interior Architecture & Design practice with over 15 years experience. As pioneers in the burgeoning field of interior architecture, we are fiercely proud to be fully trained and qualified in our core disciplines. Our knowledge and experience allows us to become an integral component of the design team on any given project. Our technical expertise and our deep understanding of both the construction and the mechanics of buildings enables a seamless transition from each stage of the process to the next. Clear dialog and collaboration with clients, contractors and suppliers ensures that we maintain control of costs and deadlines.

We are a team built on a passion for design and style. Our creativity forces us to obsess over style, colour, light and texture. Our love for well designed furniture, fixtures and fittings creates opportunities to enrich the aesthetic of the space.

We partner with ambitious clients to create intuitive, aspirational interiors which fully realises both the potential and value for our client’s properties, elevating the lifestyles of their inhabitants. Thorough research of a particular demographic or attentively and sympathetically listening to our private client’s tastes and individual styles allows us to focus not on the prevailing trends but on their particular requirements and aspirations.
