Handwerk Art and Design is an architectural and interior design practice founded by the husband-and-wife team of Gregory Bugel and Fiona Sanipelli.
We are a multi-disciplined design practice that examines spatial habitation through art, context, nature, and applied curiosity.
These varied approaches are brought to focus on projects that include interior and architectural design, graphics, concept development, branding, art consulting, and art making.
Experience is cumulative. Everything matters.
We value intimate and individual ideas over the mass-produced and conventional, and take pride in collaborating with clients to determine the best design solutions for their space.
We are a hands-on practice, both designing and fabricating custom art for projects ourselves.
