Interiorismo y Decoración | Mayella Sainz

I was born in Bilbao in 1971 and studied at the “Escuela Internacional de Decoradores del IADE” in Bilbao, graduating from the School of Applied Arts in Logroño in 1996.

In that same year, I decided to go to London to study English and lived in the city for five years.
While working in a 5 * hotel as a waitress, I also continue my career path in a workshop taught by the Academy of Jasper Jacobs Associates, studio dedicated to exhibitions and museums.
After completing the course, I was offered to work as an assistant to one of the designers of the firm, Jake Morton. With whom, I had my first working experience in museums.

In 2001, I returned to Spain and settled in Barcelona.
I start working on Iniesta Construction & Decoracion SL as a drafter, becoming Project Director in the five years I worked with them.
With Iniesta, as well as being in charge of the design department, I did specialize in construction management, especially in 4* and 5* hospitality projects.

In 2006, I decided to learn more about the world of contractors with whom I have collaborated and joined Constructiva Global, taking charge of the supervision of the company's own workshops: carpentry and blacksmith’s. During this period I carried out the project management in various luxury residential projects and hotels.

In 2007, I was offered to collaborate in Futur 2. I worked as a Project Manager and once again, I was responsible for carpentry, blacksmith’s and artistic company workshops. I carried out creative and organizational tasks in other areas of design such as staging, temporary spaces and themed decorations.

In 2009 , I start a solo career, collaborating with various professionals. A year later the opportunity arises to work in Grupo Gaudir, for its subsidiary Gaudir Decor with projects abroad, and I join the international team as Interior Design Manager; where I developed medium and large-scale projects, from conceptualization to completion, including the coordination of the designer’s team, supervision of sub-contractors and construction management, to the closure of the company in May 2013.

Now begins a new stage...

Services

Services

We believe that effective communication and flexibility are essential to new business ventures. For this reason, we offer an initial consultation where new projects can be discussed in further detail so that the client’s brief is fully understood. In this initial consultation the client’s vision for their new business/home, details of the site and resources available going forward are discussed. Also, if you have not purchased/rented yet, we advise you and look for the space that is best suited to your needs.

Once the concept is approved, we will draw up layout options and put together a sample board of materials and colours. We produce visuals of the design and translate the concept into working drawings that can be submitted to a contractor for tender.

We offer a full design service with on site supervision which is suitable for those who need a design creating and also would like us to over see the contractor during the build and we complete by styling the space.

Full design service with no on site supervision which means we create a step by step guide for you in the form of a design folder which with help you to implement the design and build yourself.

Turnkey basis. The team of professionals manages the project from start to finish and carry out control and monitoring of the various stages of implementation, ensuring the adequacy of the final result to the quality, costs and deadlines agreed with you. This service includes space planning, project interior design, furniture selection, project facilities, implementation and project management, and license management.

As well as these services we can offer a one day consultation. This is not a full design but it is more of a design and consultancy session to give you some direction and a few ideas to get you started on your own.

We also do consultancy per hours, where we can help you condition your apartment/office. Or personal shopper to advise you on lighting, furniture, upholstery, etc...
