Kris Interview

Modern design is grounded in functional, accessible and sustainable environments. For Architectural designer and company director Kris Tabone at KT3DSTUDIO, equity and wellness are two crucial elements that go hand in hand. With an ever-growing portfolio, he is fast establishing himself as a leader in his field, championing new ways to improve local needs that have a positive impact.

Established in 2019, KT3DSTUDIO focuses on designing and creating innovative residential and commercial spaces. The following interview explores the company’s vision, inspirations and signature style.

Can you tell us a little about your background and experience as an Architectural designer?

I have a background with over 18 years of combined experience in property development, project management and architectural design before the start of KT3DSTUDIO. In addition, I am qualified with a Master’s degree in Architectural Conservation and Contemporary Design.

How would you describe your style, and how does that translate into your commissions?

My personal style is both elegant and contemporary. Through our seamless design process, intimate client experience and state-of-the-art systems, we work very closely with our clients on every commission, irrespective of size, to create designs that are as breathtaking as they are personal. Every project is tailored to the requirements and needs of our clients.

The world is changing as we know it. Are there any ideas to which architects and designers should give priority?

As we confront the biggest challenge of our time, as architects and designers, our goal should be to create spaces that nurture and foster wellness, physically and emotionally. With the limited space available in Malta, reuse of an existing building and repurposing it will become more critical than ever.

WHAT advice can you give to any future architects and designers?

As an architect or interior designer, your goal when dealing with clients is to try and combine your background experience and education with what the client needs. Your guidance as the designer is crucial to eliminate unforeseen problems that the project might come across along the way, however the client’s input is just as important as yours to eventually balance out the final vision when bringing the project to life.

By nurturing and cultivating a consistent flow of creativity, we can carry this over into the execution of each unique project. Your main priority should always be to capture the essence of the client’s vision and personality. If you are consistent, these components will always translate into timeless and innovative designs.
