Orlando Diaz-Azcuy

  • Jorge S. Arango

Signature: “We create luxurious, understated interiors, no matter what the budget. We avoid flashy, in-your-face luxury.” His work is informed by modern principles (uncluttered, well-lit open spaces that are serene rather than showy), even when the particular genre he’s working in at a given moment is traditional, contemporary, or something in between. His rooms tend to employ clean-lined furniture upholstered in textured solids—busy patterns are almost nonexistent—as a backdrop for a few carefully chosen accent pieces that add character (an elaborate Chinese armoire, an ornate hand-carved candelabra, a grand Venetian mirror).

Sphere of Work: Asia, Europe, North America

Fields: Residential, hotels, restaurants, yachts, jets, commercial (offices and financial institutions), furniture, lighting, fabric

Current Notable Projects: “We just finished a private jet, and we’re doing the interiors for Ram’s Gate Winery in Sonoma, which is scheduled to open in July.” Diaz-Azcuy is also working with Western Athletic Clubs, a longtime client, on an approximately $50 million health club in Silicon Valley, and on private residential projects in the $80 million to $90 million range.
