“TO CREATE SOMETHING TRULY EXCEPTIONAL,
YOU HAVE TO BREAK THE NORMS OF CONVENTION.
YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF INNOVATION,
NO MATTER IF IT DEFIES THE STATUS QUO.”
Kirsten Schwalgien Design is a multi-award winning studio based in Barcelona.
We specialise in Exterior and Interior Design of superyachts, residential projects and commercial spaces.
Elevating Yacht Design
Our international portfolio spans 16 years of yacht design: from custom superyachts and explorer boats to highly customised shadow vessels and yacht tenders.
Every detail counts
Our motivation has always been to create highly customised, multi-sensory spaces that inspire genuine connection. Because we know that design is about how spaces look but also how they make you feel.
In pursuit of the extraordinary, we experiment with natural materials in order to reveal and enhance their innate beauty. We believe that nature has stories to tell, and we are here to tell them.
Recent groundbreaking projects related include the renovation of art nouveau landmark Loft BuresQ (for which we won the 2020 German Design Award) and the Rambla Catalunya 29 housing project.
We design in order to stimulate the senses, engage minds and, ultimately enrich people’s lives.
