September 14, 2020: All those who are under the misconception that luxury and sustainability don’t go hand in hand need to have a second thought. A leading Malaysian interior designer, Andreas Budiman, has debunked the myth like a boss with his innovative eco-friendly yet plush interior design and home renovation projects. The founder of Malaysia’s top interior design studio AND Studio, Mr. Budiman specializes in creating sustainable homes that can save on energy costs
A name of big repute across Malaysia and Singapore residential renovation scene, AND Studio is a full-service interior design and home renovation firm. The company offers specialized design consulting and home remodeling services and caters to all kinds of home renovation projects. Whether it’s a luxury makeover just for the kitchen or an overall makeover of an entire home, Mr. Budiman and his team are ready to work for all.
What separates Mr. Budiman’s approach from that of the regular interior designers is his major emphasis in incorporating natural elements in his projects with due respect to the safety of the planet. One of his recent projects was a condo makeover with natural design and elements which has introduced a new wave in the traditional scene of interior design in Malaysia. Located in a highly urbanized area, the condo has been transformed from a 4-decade-old house into a plush grand home, accentuated with natural elements.
“The beauty of natural elements was the main concept behind the designing and renovation of the condo”, said Mr. Budiman while speaking about incorporating natural elements in his recent project.
The house has been decked up with natural stones like marble which has brought a classy edge to the overall condo. Moreover, AND Studio has incorporated natural lighting in the home renovation project as much as possible to ensure almost zero energy consumption.
“With the ‘go green’ campaign going strong with each passing day, homeowners are really conscious about attaining a sustainable design and eco-friendly living. But, in most of the cases, they are curious about how to incorporate that ethos into their homes and need a guiding support here. This is where we come in.”
“We try to bring in a natural feel in homes with the help of natural stones, like the way we did in one of our last projects. Natural stones carry a timeless appeal and they always add a dose of class when you are seeking a luxury makeover for your home. Moreover, they are durable. Besides, we focus a lot on getting in natural lighting for your home to reduce energy consumption as much as possible. We believe in creating sustainable home designs that would be pleasing to the eye, easy on pocket and also would contribute to the betterment of the planet.”
While asked whether they had to face challenges while incorporating natural elements in their projects, Mr. Budiman mentioned a number of handicaps which they had to learn to tackle. He noted about the difficulties in carrying large slabs of natural stones through elevators and all the extra works needed to size them up before installation.
“Yes, of course there are always challenges when we try to incorporate natural elements in our renovation or interior design projects. For example, natural stones usually com in big sizes. So, it’s a great deal of challenge to carry it in elevators and there is always a lot of on-site work involved before installation. But, we are happy to deal with challenges because we know the end product will serve a greater good.”
Mr. Budiman also specializes in urban industrial-concept homes. Another of his recent project was on an industrial-concept home where he has used sophisticated black-accent concept design to create a suave urbane look.
A major name across the Asian interior design industry, Mr. Budiman has been widely appreciated by his clients for his vast knowledge, out-of-the-box approach to home design and renovation and personal touch. Unlike regular designers who are mostly running after money, Mr. Budiman is always more focused on helping his clients add value to their homes. He proceeds with every project with a personalized approach to ensure a client’s specific needs and choices are addressed at their best. Many of his clients have spoken highly of his careful attention to detail and personalized care.
“It helps a family to have a happy home. We do acknowledge your home is one of your most treasured assets and you wish it to be the reflection of your ethos and elegant tastes. Each design or renovation project comes with its own specific needs. Thus, we always stress on a personalized approach and minute attention to detail to ensure optimum satisfaction”, added in Mr. Budiman.
