Dr Maximilian Buston
Max has over 15 years of design experience. After completing his doctorate in Archaeology at the University of Oxford he went on to work for world renowned designer, Anouska Hempel, as her second in command. They were constantly travelling between the Far East and Central Europe to North America. Max gained an understanding of the importance of architecture and materials through Anouska Hempel's work. Master that and the drama and majesty of the interior can be realised.
Strong architecture runs through all of Max's work. He starts with symmetry and proportion, and architectural features, to enable an interior to be enhanced by its core, building on the best that it has. The use of colour, pattern and vibrancy, seen in Max's work, is his key attribute. Pulling these elements together he creates an atmosphere and depth to his work.
The range of work Max does varies greatly, from colourful classicism to contemporary chic. His approach is always with strength and definition. He achieves this using bespoke, tailor made designs, from specialist finishes to furniture, that are designed by him and made by expert craftsmen to fit perfectly into his projects.
Max will see your project through from beginning to end. He has a trusted set of architects, builders and specialist craftsmen, as well as a proven track record, to ensure your project receives an exceptional finish.
