Founded by Darryl Osada in 2004, inspired by the belief that our surroundings directly influence our lives, OSADA DESIGN is driven by the pursuit of quality, perfection, attention to detail, and functionality.
Every project undertaken rests on a duty to design responsibly and to design well. No project is too large or too small, whether it’s private, commercial, urban or rural. An holistic approach is taken to transform interiors and exteriors of residential, commercial and retail spaces to work in harmony with their surroundings.
Observing cultural influences and adapting styles from around the world, leads to reinvention – a unique and distinctive style has evolved — a combination of modern and traditional, a juxtaposition of old and new.
The genesis of each design evolves using pen and paper with no computer generated images and no short cuts. Then, combining the skill of hand drawing and CAD technology (computer-aided design) a design evolves : ideas and concepts can easily be explored and modified to develop an optimum design.
Passionate design, breadth of vision, detailing, styling and cutting edge technology creates new exciting and practical living spaces, enhancing lifestyles through original, timeless and cohesive design.
The design brief is a direct response to the site, its environment and surroundings, as well as the clients’ needs and aspirations. From inception to completion support and advice is constantly available.
The process involves : briefing, concept drawings and sketches, detailed design, furniture design and production, construction and overseeing the installation … and finally dressing each project.
OSADA DESIGN has worked on new build projects and buildings of historic importance.
Projects have included renovation, restoration and refurbishment of Grade II Listed 18th, 19th and 20th Century properties including buildings from Regency, Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian (Arts & Crafts), Deco and 20th Century-Post War . . . to the present day’s technologically groundbreaking and environmentally friendly architecture.
Spatial organisation is always a primary concern together with understanding the principles of space, a sense of proportion, and it’s physical properties such as the strength and location of natural light.
A space has to be structured and edited to relate to the clients needs. Flow and movement within is important. Each component introduced must contribute to the sense of balance, harmony and well-being.
Attention to detailing is key to a successful interior, giving emphasis to each view within a room, no matter how big or small.
Atmospheric spaces are created through the use of a mix of materials and textures, injecting warmth and comfort through the use of soft furnishings, whilst artificial lighting creates mood and ambience.
Spatial organisation is the primary concern in a garden whatever its size. It is important to create a dialogue with the space, working with voids and masses (the plants themselves) and the architecture of the garden (boundaries, walls, hedges and trees).
The garden has to relate to the architecture of the home and resonate with its surroundings.
To create a unique garden space requires sensitive use of form, colour, texture, volume, layering of plants, vertical structures, and a harmonious planting scheme.
Using sculpture, water and lighting adds drama to a space, contrasting yet harmonising with the planting.
The philosophy is to simplify the design, to remove what is unnecessary, so only the essential remains; to make clean, clear and sharp design.
In the exterior environment, when a garden is completed, garden support and maintenance can be arranged to suit a client’s needs.
