Luis Laplace is an Argentine-trained architect with a sharp eye for interior design. Therefore, our competence goes beyond architecture and focuses on interior architecture as well as decoration. We can design a house from scratch and carry out the project to the ultimate details of everyday living. This “clé en mains” service is a key distinctive characteristic of Laplace.
A successful project demands a constant dialogue with the clients to develop a thorough vision of their goals, aspirations and challenges. This communication is essential to develop trust relationship and to deliver a project in line with clients’ expectations.
Our objective is not only to offer timeless and elegant design but also to give practical solutions to 21st century high-end living challenges. In some instances, Laplace may assist clients in their quest for their ideal home by visiting the house before acquisition, defining budgets for renovation and interiors, setting up a team of experts in charge of delivering the project under Laplace’s supervision, etc.
The Laplace team counts 15 professionals, including architects, interior architects and designers. We rely on an extensive network all over the world of real estate agents, artisans, quantity surveyors, contractors, local architects, etc... This network of professionals allows Laplace to deliver projects on time and on budget all over the world while controlling the execution in line with the design intent.
