Kalli- architecture & design is an emerging RIBA chartered architecture and design studio founded by Maro Kallimani in 2018.
Kalli- architecture & design is interested in the users’ psychology in their most intimate environment which is one’s home. We are focusing on empathetic listening with the aim to learn and understand our clients, analyse their space and reimagine their vision in order to transform it into a structured architectural result that is unique. The studio’s high standards for excellence produce superior quality technical and design details that refine the original bold concepts. Our long expertise has given the insight to deliver projects on time and on budget with a focus on high quality service provided throughout the process.
The studio’s objective is to maintain exceptional standards and maximum control throughout the process, be fully responsible and accountable for every design solution and be fair and highly professional in all its collaborations. This limits the amount of projects undertaken per year, creating a niche market success.
Kalli- architecture & design offers a full range of traditional architectural services generally based on the RIBA plan of works Stages 0-7. From the initial brief through to concept design, detailed design and statutory permissions, technical design and tender documentation to construction and in use services. However depending on the scope and the client’s brief and requirements we can tailor our services and offer as little or as much is required on every occasion.
Our services’ core is the careful guidance of our clients through the whole planning and construction process which could be quite intimidating. We clearly communicate the needs and requirements of every stage including advising on additonal necessary appointments, expected timescales and responsibilities matrix. We want to absorb the stress and provide a positive experience for all.
