“This was a deep renovation with a long-term client of mine, Holmes Place, Premium Fitness Club. The potential was tremendous but the architectural constraints heavy. Fortunately the client was fully on-board for some dramatic changes.
We took down walls; moved the reception, the office and the lounge; removed the ceiling and floors; created new areas, lighting structure and traffic flow, etc...
All this while the club was OPEN!
After over 18 months of planning, designing, renovating and decorating we have a brand new venue. The members were grateful for the upgrade and my client happy for meeting their clients' expectations.
This is of course, the type of reward that makes me love my job.”
Renovation of an historical venue at Maison des Paons in the center of Geneva to hold a state-of-the-art business center for the worldwide business chain Regus.
“The venue was specially designed with the well-being of the collaborators in mind. An unique and innovative place that allows mobile workers to enjoy not only the functional but also the aesthetic aspect of it. Lamps that diffuse daylight, ergonomic chairs for better posture, all furniture was designed in detail for this space. Virginia points out the hidden USB connections integrated directly in the magnificent tables which all have their own unique structure (and sculpture!). We can even make a discrete phone call in a sofa corner, conceded in a material that absorbs the sound!
Because this is the idea, to still find some privacy within an open space."

The original 200-year old "Homestead of Oldenburg" was carefully restored, renovated and opened up for easy modern family living, retaining its essential historical provenance with gracious Cape Dutch and Cape Revival proportions.
"The idea was to modernize the house, whilst keeping its essential character" explains owner Adrian Vanderspuy
When considering the interiors, Vanessa Vanderspuy’s inspiration came from the traditional aspects of the house that give it such natural grace. She collaborated with Virginia Azevedo from Geneva, where the family is based.
"Virginia was instrumental and invaluable in helping me come up with the design concept for the Homestead" Vanessa Vanderspuy

Fusion of old and new in this classic chic villa renovation.
The new interiors were designed to integrate some of the owner's cherished belongings. Antique pieces of furniture and art were carefully planned and highlighted in custom-made niches and special lighting.
In the words of Terri Lind Davis: "Architecture is the bones, decor is the heart, and art is the soul of a room”.
And this charming home by the lake of Geneva is the perfect representation of it.
Renovation of a private duplex in Chêne-Bourg, Geneva.
“Virginia Azevedo and her team have provided to our new home excellent work from concept to final product; this is all inclusive from architectural design, furniture plan, room layout, paint plan, colour selection and a great management of all the various components while getting closer to the deadline. She does a wonderful job in identifying a client's taste and style and incorporating that into the final design. I never hesitate to send my friends to Virginia who has always been professional, timely and organised, in addition of being creative and flexible. It is always a win/win situation. Thank you again for making this a pleasurable and fun experience with fabulous results!”
