State of Craft is a specialist design studio working with leading developers around the world on super prime residential developments. We also create homes for discerning private clients.
Our work is specific to place and context, drawing on local traditions and materials to give our designs both authenticity and identity. This is coupled with a modern approach to craftsmanship and detail, creating spaces that are both contemporary and timeless in their simplicity.
We have gathered extensive experience in the high end residential market having worked on iconic projects such as The Shard Residences, Great Arundel Court, Portland House and one of the largest country homes in the UK.
With our backgrounds as architects and specialisation in interior design we combine different skills working from the inside out and creating well-considered, generous and effortless projects.
Daniel is the founder and creative director of State of Craft. He has worked on a broad spectrum of internationally recognised projects ranging from award-winning architecture, to interiors for homes and yachts, as well as luxury branding. Daniel offers a unique insight into the high-end residential development market with his expertise as an architect, interior designer and his insight into the development industry.
Prior to setting up his own studio, Daniel qualified as an architect in Germany before relocating to Great Britain, where he gained more than 10 years of experience as head of design in some of London’s most prestigious design companies on projects including One Hyde Park. At Foster and Partners, he worked for six years on large cultural projects including the British Museum Great Court, where he discovered his interest in responding to historic interiors. Subsequently, Daniel designed large private yachts, worked for a five-star hotel operator in London on international projects, and enjoyed the opportunity to experience the commercial complexities while working for a leading London developer.
Since Daniel set up State of Craft Limited as the sole shareholder, the studio has become one of the leading design firms for premium residential developments with an interdisciplinary team working on international projects.
