Co-Lab Design Office
Co-Lab Design Office is a full-service architecture studio located in Tulum. Inspired by the natural beauty of the Yucatan, the group’s projects encourage a greater appreciation of and connection to the natural world through design. Embracing sustainable principles, each project carefully weaves the architectural program with the beauty of each site to create unique contextual designs. Locally sourced natural materials and handcrafted finishes render rooms built around views of nature, gentle breezes, light and shadows, to create new compositions and relationships.
A renowned interior designer based in Berlin, Annabell Kutucu has raised great interest with her work on private residences and various international hospitality projects like San Giorgio Mykonos and Scorpios Mykonos, a contemporary interpretation of the ancient Greek agora. Her work combines the handmade, the artisanal, and the organic—elements such as old linen, rough textiles, and weathered wood—with vintage and contemporary pieces to create effortlessly holistic spaces in perfect communion with their surroundings.
