WE DESIGN SPACES THAT MAKE PEOPLE FEEL GOOD.
More than a flawlessly finished space, home is how you feel.
For us, daily life moments – both the polished and the chaotic – deserve equal contemplation. We design for the personal rituals that stem from those moments. Intimate, fluid spaces to unwind and curl up within. Indulge whims, throw roaring parties and create joys in a home you’re proud to show off, and after, keep all to yourself. Room to grow, and to let loose. Natural placement, where everything you want is right there when you reach. Texture, colours and beautiful things that thrill, just because. Conscious, empathetic details that work for you.
So, it’s not really about us. This is your story. We’re here to take bold steps with you, to uncover what sets you apart and discover a new style for living it. When you’re ready, we are.
_WHAT WE DO
Buildings, extensions, renovations and interiors designed by Motto are creative, confident, practical and beautiful. There is a big gap between high-end architecture and basic drafting. We work in this space, balancing beauty and practicality to create homes and spaces that people love.
WE DO THIS WELL BECAUSE
We listen and get to know your needs
We carefully balance how a room looks and feels
We are creative and professional
And … we have really great taste
We design your home or space with you working closely with qualified building designers and architects who advise on all structural details. We direct how your space will look, feel and flow and we engage technical expertise to prepare construction drawings. We design and thoroughly document all interior details and provide direction on all elements that are essential to draw a project together to create a cohesive and stunning result.
FEEL GOOD DESIGN

A 2 hour strategy session kick starts your project. We’ll take a deep dive into your creative direction, answer all your burning questions, and finish with a clearly defined project brief.
Our 6 design phases, each with detailed steps in between, will ensure you feel grounded, informed, and more than a little excited, while your dreams evolve into ideas, an amazing design, and eventually, a spectacular home.
A style guide is a roadmap for a partial scope project, turning all your ideas & inspiration into a cohesive, beautiful interior scheme. We’ll provide specific direction, lock down your selections, and share our go to contacts.
