Based in a converted warehouse in Chelsea overlooking the Thames, Studio Indigo is a multi-disciplinary practice encompassing architecture, interior design and building management. Since being founded by creative director Mike Fisher 15 years ago, it has become known, not just for its expertise in prime residential properties (which often leads to record breaking sales) but luxury yachts, planes, hotels, restaurants and offices, too. What unites this diverse portfolio is an ambition to create unique, expressive spaces through integrating the architecture with the interiors – in other words, thinking from the outside in and inside out. With a team that consists of 40 architects, technicians and designers from around the world, the studio has the flexibility to work on every stage of a project, from concept to design, planning to construction and styling.
Inspiration can come from various sources: a piece of furniture, art, fashion, fabrics, nature or iconic architects such as Charles Cameron and Norman Foster
Other completed projects include designing the London showrooms for two world-renowned fabric houses – Rubelli and Chelsea Textiles – and the interior of the Clockspire restaurant in Sherborne, which is set in a 19th-century school; currently the studio is working on a new Mandarin Oriental hotel in Hanover Square, several new yachts, a large residential complex near Moscow, a ski chalet and various houses and apartments in London and the countryside. All of which demonstrates the studio’s capacity to offer high quality service and design, tapping into the holistic relationship between architecture and interiors – whatever the nature of the space.
