A PASSION FOR ALL THINGS BEAUTIFUL
A lifetime dedicated to design and preservation . . .
Kent Gordon England, and the design and art studio that bears his name, have been designing beautiful architecture, gardens and interiors for over four decades.
TURN KEY FROM START TO FINISH
Kent is intimately involved in all of his projects from beginning to end. The initial design concepts are communicated to the clients using pen and ink sketches, color renderings and sample boards. These ideas are then translated into workings drawings in the form of digital plans, specifications, and construction details. Execution of the design plans and specifications are orchestrated using project scheduling and management tools combined with extensive personal site supervision. Our process guarantees that the finished product will be of the highest quality…delivered with the utmost of personal service.
GREAT VISION INTEGRATED WITH SOLID EXPERIENCE
With a lifetime dedicated to his craft, Kent brings many talents to support his clients’ vision of the future that are extremely valuable. His extensive knowledge of building, fabrication and installation is vast and spreads across many disciplines. Few design firms are able to integrate the design and construction process as he does. His sensitivity towards site design allows for beautiful locations to retain their charm, character and natural wonder while still providing the innovative and functional solutions that the client needs and wants. Kent possesses the skill set to harmonize the interior and exterior environments simultaneously and effortlessly. He has excellent problem solving capabilities, and can make important decisions while considering many important issues at hand.
Although our work has matured over the years, the design process has changed very little. Building on his passion for ‘everything handcrafted and exquisite’, Kent provides for his clients a diverse range of design services under one roof. From ‘conception through completion’, Kent connects interior and exterior living spaces seamlessly. He then translates these original designs into beautiful, innovative environments with the support of experienced and service driven builders, merchants, craftsmen, artists and specialty contractors.
“Kent approaches his design commissions as the great architects and designers did during the dawn of the last century. He begins by creating an overall vision for the project, refines the design, assembles a team of talented craftsmen, and then supervises the translation of this design on site until every last detail is exactly as he and the clients envision them.”
MERGING GREAT VALUE WITH EXCELLENCE
Great design reflects the current and future needs demanded by the site, the people using it, and the projects’ impact on the local and worldwide environment. With a commitment to combine old world craftsmanship with modern technology, Kent directs all of his projects toward sustainable materials and solutions…with a focus on beautiful, nurturing, and healthy environments. His thorough understanding of materials, their applications and unique characteristics, combined with worldwide sourcing…guarantees the client the absolute best selections with excellent value. Using intelligent design, best management practices, and innovative building processes, Kent doesn’t fail to deliver fantastic value in the finished product.
