debutant in AD100 list, Nate Berkus Associates make the difference by creating interiors that mirror who their clients are. The designer and his team believe that a home interior should reflect what a person or a whole family loves the most, creating spaces where they will feel comfortable and in their element. The interior designer also believes that there should be no barriers as to what makes a great interior design, so he continuously works with brands such as Target or the Shade Store, at the same time he commissions for personalities such as Ricky Martin, Karlie Kloss, and Charlize Theron.

I’ve always believed your home should tell your story,” Nate Berkus said.

Apart from being featured in AD’s 100 list for the first time, AL_A’s RIBA Stirling Prize-winning founder Amanda Levete is having a great year! In 2017, the architecture firm had the opportunity to create a new structure that would be an extension of Lisbon’s MAAT museum. The top AD architect firm designed a wavelike extension, clad in creamy tile, that overlooks the Tagus River and couldn’t be a better fit to MAAT’s architectural design.
