interior design & architecture services

Chango & Co. is a full-service interior design and architecture studio in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NYC. We create beautiful spaces for nice people with open minds.

 "full-service" is a highly qualified, experienced, meticulous, organized and talented team that manages every aspect of a construction and interior design project, allowing clients to focus on the creative and enjoyable aspects of the process without being overwhelmed by it. Our design and collaboration process works especially well for people who know what they like and resonate with our work, but aren't able to devote the time and energy required to build or design a home from scratch. 

We offer three levels of service:

Interior Design: Comprehensive interior design for move-in ready homes.

We'll collaborate with you on the interior design planning intent of the home, develop and refine the ideas into a clear and relatable goal, then work with you and your architect from start to finish, guiding you through the process and advising on every aspect of the home, from the mailbox to the back fence. At the moment, our budgets for interior design projects start at around $500K, including everything needed to fully furnish and accessorize a home from scratch, and depending on the budget, may include millwork design & fabrication and minor construction tweaks. Budget vary depending on a variety of factors (scope of work, square footage, timeline, etc.).

Advisement + Design: Architectural advisement & interior design for major construction projects.

We'll collaborate with you on the design intent of the home, develop and refine the ideas into a clear and relatable goal, then work with you and your architect from start to finish, guiding you through the process and advising on every aspect of the home, from the mailbox to the back fence. Project budgets start at around $650K, including architectural advisement and complete interior design services, but don't typically include construction materials and labor costs.

Construction Management + Design: Comprehensive architecture, construction management & interior design for major construction projects.

Similar to our Advisement + Design service, except that we serve as the lead project architect and construction manager and the overall project budget includes construction material and labor expenses, architectural fees, permitting expenses, etc. Budgets vary depending on square footage, project timeline, etc.

Here's a bit about what we do and how we make it all happen...

· We're just as comfortable furnishing finished homes as we are taking the lead on a major construction project and handling all of the architectural planning, permitting and construction administration. But interior design is our specialty and the "cherry-on-top" of each project, so we don't take on construction or architectural advisement projects where interior design isn't part of the scope.

· To understand your goals and the desired outcome of your project scope as well as our role, the scope of work, timeline & budget, we need to spend a bit of time to get to know you, your needs & expectations, and the particular style & objective for your project. Once we've gathered all of the necessary bits of information (your initial responses to the questions in the link below, any subsequent correspondence, and if possible, a recent set of floor plans or construction documents, and photographs), we'll get ready to follow up with a proposal of goods and services, a comprehensive project budget (inclusive of all goods, services, storage, delivery, fees & taxes)and a project timeline that we'll be able to plug into a contract and stick to from survey to reveal.

· We don't work hourly or go shopping for several items at a time with our clients, we determine and agree upon a scope of work, a project budget and timeline, put it all on paper and quickly set to work through the many project phases from survey and research to installation and final reveal, taking great care of every detail in between.

· Our design and collaboration process works especially well for busy people who resonate with our work and know what they do and don't like, but don't have a lot of time to delve into the details and put all of the pieces together.

·We fill our spaces with a sensible and ego-free mix of beautiful, functional and durable custom-designed, one-of-a kind and readily available pieces. We design spaces around the way our clients aspire to live, taking cues from everything from

 The result is a home that's as comfortable and livable as it is beautiful and a true reflection of the personalities of all of the people (& pets) who inhabit it.

We deliver move-in-ready homes with everything from home furnishings, floor coverings and custom window treatments to limited edition artwork, shelf and table books, framed family photos, bed and bath linens. When the paint is dry and the last finishing touches are in place, we reveal a completely furnished home, exactly as it will appear in our published photos. All on schedule, on budget, and only full of good surprises.
