FRAMO.me is a research infused design-led architecture and interior practice based in East London. The practice is co-directed by Katarina Mercep and Dimitrije Miletic.
Our scope of work starts from tiny everyday products up to architectural scale, with a great experience in interior design and residential projects.
We love what we do and invest great energy in delivering projects which are beautifully conceived and finely crafted. We respond to our clients’ needs by designing projects in a very intimate and hands-on way, collaborating with people that we know and trust.
It’s important for a client and an architect to take the long view together. When the client gives us a starting point, we can tailor it to make the living environment nicer.
After finishing MArch Studies at Faculty of Architecture in Serbia, Dimitrije did a postgraduate studies at Architectural Association School of Architecture in London – Design Research Laboratory witch he finished with honors. He joined studio of
Thomas Heatherwick and was also visiting lecturer for Arduino and computational coding classes while overseeing digital workshops at Architectural Association. Over the four years that he worked at Heatherwick Studio he was involved in and
led different packages on big scale projects, overseeing them from concept design to completion.
Katarina finished her studies with honors at Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade, Serbia with MArch degree. With her forward thinking and ambitions she was invited to assist with mentorship role in the Bachelor and Graduate program she previously completed. During her mentorship she was also involved in material research and creative design installations. Her move to London was followed by an engagement in the AAVA Architecture Studio where she was involved on housing projects across London. Later Katarina joined Thomas Heatherwick Studio where she was part of the team that worked on Garden Bridge in London and Al Fayah Park in Abu Dhabi.
FRAMO Studio emerged as a response to a current architectural housing scheme questioning the often under explored fields of design within a family dwelling. Their first project ‘House as an Open Space for Occupation’ is an ongoing research in spatial and programmatic behavior where user is invited to adopt the space to its needs not disturbing the other occupants. It is a take on traditional house packed with divisions and room with no clear contemporary function. Along the project’s development they bonded with external teams of structural engineers, contractors, building regulators, planning officers, joiners, craftsmen, artists, etc.
