Studio Far West is an Interior Design and Architecture studio based in Cornwall founded by Jennie Trethewy and Hollie Milne. After successfully collaborating on several projects a mutual passion for the ever-changing natural surrounding landscape of the West Coast emerged and Studio Far West was established. Their combined skills and talent see them work across many sectors including private residences, hospitality, commercial and residential developments delivering truly bespoke design packages.
Jennie specialises in Interior Architecture, FF&E and project management, Hollie in Interior Design creative concepts, 3D visualisation and materiality.
Jennie and Hollie’s design process and approach stems from their ability to collaborate on each project together, elevating and challenging the brief to strike the right balance between function, form, and style.
Working together they build an in-depth design brief that reflects you, your personality and your lifestyle resulting in the creation of beautifully crafted multi-layered elegant interiors. In their view, designing interiors is like telling the story of a person or a place.
By approaching each project holistically, the design duo delivers detailed, thoughtful, and intelligently planned spaces with clear design stories cemented by imaginative use of materials and finishes.
Having established several working partnerships with local engineers, artists and trades Studio Far West can deliver exceptionally high personalised levels of service. Their combined skills and talent see them work across many sectors including private residences, hospitality, commercial and residential developments delivering truly bespoke design packages.
We don’t have a house style – we tailor each and every project to suit our client’s needs.
