FROM THE CLIENT
MaRS is made up of Kelie Mayfield and Erick Ragni to create Mayfield and Ragni Studio, the architectural design studio founded by a group of highly experienced, award-winning individuals who have come together after distinguished careers in some of the country’s leading private practices to form a creative design culture. They offer a unique breadth of diverse knowledge and a passion for collaboration that has been the catalyst for innovative and memorable spaces around the world. Established in 2011 the firm is based in Houston, with the principals’ project experience in more than eleven countries worldwide. MaRS is dedicated to bringing beauty, function, innovation and design integrity to the modern built environment. The firm’s portfolio includes corporate offices, hotels, retail spaces, residential and visionary master plans that exemplify a deep respect for each project’s environmental, economic and social context. Complementing its core creative services, the firm also designs furniture, carpets, wall coverings, provides graphic design and branding services as well as curates artwork and accessories, delivering holistically conceived, fully realized environments.
“We knew what we wanted, an office design that provides efficient and functional space planning, however we achieved much more than that, the design was cleverly thought out, with timeless features and use of colours that add many dimensions to our open plan area. The reception area is a real talking point, for all the right reasons, the cluster of light bulbs above our reception desks, not only conveys the energy market that we work in, but also demonstrates one of our company’s core values, energy. In short the features, design and finishes are beautiful, our staff love their office and they are proud to bring people to it, I am just sorry that I have to work in our London office which looks pretty boring in comparison.”
