We design and shape feel-good spaces with a spirit.
Aboutlama is an office for holistic interior architecture from Mannheim. Founded in 2019 by Elena Laschewitsch and Yordanka Rotta, Aboutlama works with private and public clients in various sizes and sectors.We like to discuss, understand and encounter people's full grasp of reality so as to intensify the right feelings. For us, a space is never inanimate and rigid, but always filled with life. It is influenced and animated by its users and its inhabitants. We prioritise taking the surroundings and architecture into account to create a fine balance and harmony between the interior and the exterior. It is never our ambition to merely sell the idea of a beautiful picture, but to create actual vivacity. What is it that remains in our heads, lingers in our hearts, is stuck in our minds? We imagine ourselves in the new spaces before they have come into being.We play with possibilities, circumstances and requirements feeling a deep need to explore the best options in order to bring everything to life. Paying attention to our first and last impressions as we enter, stay and leave helps us shape true uniqueness. We explore which paths lead through a room, what can be observed, but also where we might choose to surprise. We wish to inspire by atmosphere. Inspiration means to inhale: Serenity, value, individuality. Spaces are given a chance to breathe, break away from their former rut and acquire a new life. We focus on exquisiteness by meeting individual requirements with the appropriate function, perfect materials and an overall harmonious atmosphere. We do not reproduce, but rather quote the message of a space to compose a melodious overall structure. By preserving characteristic features of the building and mindfully complementing them with the new.
By enabling sustainable usability and allowing spaces to age gracefully.
