Established in 2000, Saka is an innovative design and build company which offers professional design, consulting, and construction services in architecture, interior design and furniture design with services in new construction, renovation, and reconstruction projects. Throughout our existence we have worked successfully with a wide range of clients from private residential projects right through to large-scale commercial investment projects.
We strive on delivering a quality service to our clients within proposed budgets and lead-times. Our main focus is to improve the quality of life through space. With ‘simplicity’ as our philosophy, we aim to create spaces that are pure, honest, and functional. We take the essence of the client’s brief and fuse it with our individual design vision and creative insight to create what we believe to be the “sweet sugar”, or Saka (sugar in Acehnese), of a concept, which is thus the starting point of all relationships and projects.
Conserving and improving the quality of the environment is another one of our primary goals. The fast pace in which the world is growing means that environmental damage is a direct bi-product if such development, we at Saka believe that good design should enhance the environment in which we live in rather that idea its deterioration. As part of the global community, we feel a direct responsibility to maintain natural and sustainable methods where possible. Therefore, as design company we embrace the notion of responsible design.
Inspiration is created within the dynamic team at Saka by merging centuries of art, history and tradition, with individuality and modern ideas, influences and techniques, against the backdrop of nature, to produce a new language of design, unique to Saka.
