Concept Development

Thanks to it’s technical team which has been built over the last 10 years, Nobo Architects can provide key hold project service to it’s clients from concept development to custom furniture design & styling.

Concept Development is the stage where our client’s vision is conceptualized. Considering numerous design parameters -such as the client’s lifestyle, flow of the space, the constraints of existing fixed building elements, and flexibility for accommodating future space needs- a thoughtful design concept is generated with moodboards and 3D renderings. This generated concept is used as a framework for all design decisions.
Throughout the construction process, regular site visits take place to ensure accuracy in the build. Nobo Architects believes communication is essential to the development of the project. All changes throughout the process are issued through written documentation of site instructions and approved by clients before processed.


Interior Styling

Our furniture and fabric choices are individually sourced for each project and always driven by quality and enduring style. During the final stages of our design process we ensure that all open shelving,

tables, work stations and other areas where accessorizing is required are stylized so that our clients are left with a complete, curated look. If required, Nobo Architects can give styling package service only, apart from the construction.

Custom Furniture Design

Nobo’s custom furniture pieces are hand tailored and designed to suit individual spaces and clients needs. Each luxury piece is assembled with exclusive material combinations and built by our dedicated artisans and workshops.
