ATELIER INTERIOR DESIGN is an award winning interior architectural design consultancy specialising in luxury Interior design, founded by design duo Victor Branco and James Fairley. With different academic backgrounds and life paths, Victor and James came together to form the core of Atelier Interior Design in 2014.
James studied Architecture at the Queens University Belfast and The Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow where he completed his Masters in Architecture before working in commercial practice in Switzerland, Malaysia and the UK for 15 years.
Victor was born in Mozambique where he spent his childhood before moving to Portugal in his teens. After completing a degree in Fine Art at ESAD Caldas Rainha - Lisbon, Victor moved to the UK in 2001 to study Interior Architecture at the Belfast School of Architecture and Built Environment at The University of Ulster, graduating with a 1st class BA honours in 3D Design (Product, Furniture and Interior Design).

Architecture, interiors, contemporary art, music, cinema and fashion are part of the daily life of this design duo and they provide them inspiration, revealed in the everyday live settings they create. Each developed project pursues harmony in the proportions of its interior architecture, in the balance of forms and in the original and engaging use of materials and colours through an eloquent and sensitive approach.
