GEMA – Architecture & Interior Design is a solutions-driven architectural practice that integrates context and nature into every project, meeting each design challenge by first listening to its surroundings. Founded on the belief that design has the power to transform lives and enhance communities, we work together with each client to create healthy, sustainable places in which to live, learn, work, play, and heal. Over the years, Gema has had multiple opportunities to demonstrate its know-how in mixed-use buildings, house design, interior design and home décor. We also have had the privilege to design residential complex projects of a more ambitious scale, where original individual units must be integrated into a coherent ensemble.
Sustained collaboration with the client is key to our whole creation process as a design studio, allowing for the exploration of different alternatives, until all parts seem to integrate effortlessly. Our design tactics encompass producing custom furniture, creating exclusive textures and wall paneling, while matching interlocking volumes with straight lines and clean surfaces. Some of our most outstanding achievements have been in penthouse design, where Gema has been able to harmonize conviviality and decorum with a distinctly urban flair. Warm but neutral tones are frequently used to create discreet and timeless elegance.
As for the different villa projects we have had the opportunity to realize, our approach to home design is to optimize the synthesis of the project with its natural environment, by minimizing transitions and letting the outdoors connect visually with the inner space. Gema’s home interior design expertise allows us to shape ever changing daylight with judiciously positioned openings and elements, creating an ever-changing canvas. There is a subtle gradation from easily accessed public spaces, leading to more private and appeasing family quarters. Airy multi-functional zones are privileged on the ground floor, allowing flexible conviviality and emphasizing natural lighting.
By embracing a humanistic approach and considering not only our client’s needs and the site location, but also its cultural and economic environment, our home design solutions are contextual, yet conceptual and visionary in their intent, effect and appeal.
Clients turn to us for our leadership as an interior design company and our expertise in areas such as sustainability, resilience and wellness. Gema’s intervention creates convenient and elegant living spaces offering flexibility and comfort.
