We believe great design goes way beyond good looks. Truly well-designed buildings and interior spaces - whether they're homes, office buildings, schools or airports - must also function intuitively and make people feel great inside them. After decades of international experience at world-renowned firms, we founded studioSALT in 2018 with a simple goal: to work with nice people, on interesting projects, and have fun doing it. That's it.
