  • They make spaces functional, and command the use of artificial light, colors, materials and their textures, furnishings, and styles.  They are trained to create environmental conditions appropriate to the nature of the atmosphere they wish to achieve.  Their work doesn´t stop with the interior spaces, as they must establish a dialogue between the interior and the exterior, by creating gardens and the other components of this open space, and work even with the image of the building.
