Interior Design: Residential

Martin Kobus Home

In an increasingly driven societal atmosphere centered on devices, our design approach was rooted in gathering spaces. Areas where you can share close conversations with friends or loved ones, toast to each other’s successes or defeats, and disconnect to truly connect on the personal, emotional level. We consciously selected materials that reflected a global footprint to celebrate one-ness and harmony in a political environment that feels more divided than ever. Lastly, as in all our projects, we were considerate of the environmental toll that certain aspects of construction and design can have on a given site. It was important to us to be thoughtful on this subject and make decisions to help mitigate that harm— a huge win for us was foraging, and reclaiming a fallen eucalyptus tree for the playroom installation.

About the organization

Martin’s design sensibilities have remained the same for most of his career, creating calm, welcoming spaces that showcase his modern aesthetic. A lifetime of immersion in the design world has shaped his eclectic approach. A Dutch native, he studied design in the Netherlands and Italy, giving his work a distinctively European lineage. Licensing MK Home products in a major Japanese department store brought his stylish and eclectic vision across the Pacific. Today he designs for clients seeking his textured, layered interiors that speak to each home’s individual strengths. Martin’s creative team and studio are dedicated to bringing his vision to life.
