SAGRAV is a full-service architecture and interior design studio led by Benny Guzman and Gyselle Cruz. The husband-and-wife team established their Miami-based design studio in 2022 specialized in residential and commercial interior design that translates impressive aesthetic concepts into compelling spaces. Incorporating the emotional connection that is tied to a design, they look to enhance the experience within interiors.
We take inspiration from the architectural narrative of every project expertly crafting visualizations that integrate the surroundings, transporting the design concept into realistic settings. From bespoke residential interiors that connect with nature to branded luxury residential buildings that create a sense of community; we design to evoke emotion. At SAGRAV, we partner with architects and real estate developers to digitally envision the interiors of their designs. Rendering in-house, we can tell the story of a project through memorable layouts, beautiful visuals, and architectural details that communicate the location, experience, and feeling to the client. Our visuals truly reveal the character of every design while respecting the architectural context.
We elegantly introduce regional influences and cultural nuances via contemporary styles that are warm, inviting, and timeless. Seamlessly layering rich details, textures, and fine finishes, our team is setting the standard for approachable high-end designs. Whether designing projects in Miami, New York, or Santo Domingo, our carefully curated interiors interpret and elevate our client’s desires. We believe that the design process can be refined and tailored for every client through exceptional service and open, and transparent communication. The foundation of our success is building trust and a rapport with our clients that in turn allows us to build long lasting connections.
