• The Fractal Group is a full-service design firm. Our philosophy focuses on intricate detailing, innovative material selection, and the creative integration of traditional style with a contemporary design language.

    We believe that a designer should also take on the role of general contractor in order to oversee every aspect of the process from conceptualization to final completion. This allows freedom to execute a clear vision.

    Every element receives a high level of personal attention from all individuals working on the project during the entire process. All the pieces come together to form a cohesive whole, much like the fractal formation which inspired the company’s branding and ideology.

    The Fractal Group has a unique ability to create a clear dialogue between art and spatial design, partnering with established artists and professionals from various disciplines outside the practice to inform each project with a multilayered approach.

    With a belief that successful design is one that responds to the needs of modern life and culture, the Fractal Group’s evolving design language bridges the gaps between the past and present—and forges a path into a future full of endless possibilities.
