Established as a design-oriented boutique studio, the studio maintains a small team size. Somia’s projects are typically concentrated in private residences, resorts, hotels, and other estate type commissions. A strong expression of materiality is present in our projects, stemming from a desire to research, innovate and adapt to its surrounding context and to the Client’s dream.
At Somia, every day is never the same, and we love it.
We acknowledge that everyone is unique in their own ways, differentiating their needs with everyone else. Responding to the particular needs and characteristics of each of our customers, we approach every project to meet every exceptional necessity of every customer.
We believe the foundation of a great design is in the depth understanding of the business, the target customers, and the knoledge and appreciation of technology. Collaborating those three in our design will result in an innovation which is meaningful, feasible, and profitable.
We don't create a pretty design. We create a creative and imaginative design to be an innovation which delivers a design with great experiences. Thus, each design tells a story, where not only it is answering the design problems, but also overflowing the users with emotions.
