About George Graziano Design Ltd

About Me:
I am the fourth generation of Italian craftsmen in building design; the warmth of Italy continues to inspire my creativity. I graduated from the Architectural Association in London in 1979. I have worked in England, Italy and Qatar (Middle East). I have 35 years’ experience in building design with a broad portfolio of work. Whether I am working on residential (contemporary/traditional) or listed buildings, I apply my wealth of knowledge and experience to produce a highly effective design solution that meets clients' needs and exceeds expectations. I am committed to providing a first class bespoke service. With my ability to think outside the box, clients can be assured of a unique design solution tailored to their requirements. My passion for this craft means I leave a little of myself in every project and find great satisfaction in a job well done.
Designer:
I still get a buzz out of listening to a client’s ideas. The brief is key to creating a mental image in response to what they are saying. I listen out for critical words and phrases to create a concept which is unique and personal to each client. I take into account their location, surroundings, lifestyle, even mannerisms and the way they communicate their ideas to produce a bespoke design that will delight them.
Draughtsman:
I have my own style when it comes to my work. It speaks of natural origins, time, tradition and warmth. I combine modern, even abstract ideas with traditional styles and crafts to create a completely tailor-made design. I take pride in transforming an idea, a thought process into a drawing, then bringing that idea to life to create something substantial and beautiful.
I like nothing better than to surprise a client with the design; going out on a limb to give unexpected options, using old and new and making those two styles sit perfectly together. I enjoy a solution that can’t be read completely from the outside, but retains a little mystery which is personal and only revealed to the client as they walk through the building.
Craftsman:
If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well; that’s my philosophy when it comes to my work. I believe that if you create something, you should care passionately about it and take pride in what you do. I grew up in an atmosphere of tradition and hard work, where every design or building was completed to the highest possible standard, combining the best of the craftsman’s skill with modern technology to produce exceptional results.
Today, my work reflects my heritage and early life in Italy, my training and passion for my craft. I feel that I leave a little of myself in every project, and find great satisfaction in a job well done.
In 2009, I started my own architectural services company.
One of my new residential design projects (S Gray & Sons, Essex) reached the Building Excellence Award for East Anglia finals in 2012.
