Established August 1, 2014

paradoxx DESIGN believes in the creation of interior environments that, despite seemingly contradictory, result in the common place transformed into extraordinary space.

The quality of the interior environment of our places of business greatly affects how people live, work and interact with others. Lack of attention to design details result in the commonplace. Thoughtful design based on specific needs and desired outcomes leads to extraordinary space. We work in collaboration with project owners architects / engineers to develop use-specific places to work, live and play. Our process seeks solutions to the unique needs that are a part of every building project with the goal of enabling users to be more productive, better learners, healthier and happy.
