The Inner House was created by Markus Altvater, who has been passionate about interesting and unique interior design. He started by redesigning his bedroom at the age of 12, built columns and had a glazier make a custom-made mirror for himself. When he was 16, he discovered an Art Déco table lamp at the auctioneer’s where he was working, for which he immediately spent the money that he had just earned.
This passion has grown over the years. By travelling. By multiple redesigns of his own home. But also by supporting friends with the planning, renovation and equipment of their homes and workplaces. Markus Altvater book hotels not only by location or price, but also by whether he likes its design, the rooms and furnishings in the lobby or the spa. He mentally redesigns many of the rooms he visits.
After many years as a project manager in various industries, Markus Altvater decided to finally make his passion his profession. He studied interior design in London and took the plunge into self-employment, and THE INNER HOUSE was born.
Since then he has been advising and accompanying his clients on one of the best tasks he can imagine: To make their living and work environments more beautiful and more functional. And of course his clients also benefit from his experience in project management and commercial expertise.
The Inner House is all about interior design. At the same time, it also says: “No matter the project, it’s about a personal place that expresses visually what can be found inside.” Whether the clients have just moved or would like to redesign their existing home, The Inner House’s initial design consultation is the perfect first step for them. It is as individual as the clients’ living situation and can include the rearrangement of existing furniture or practical ideas for the use of space, materials and colours.
Eccentric or elegant. Minimalist or opulent. Each apartment is as individual and unique as the people who live in it. Every office should meet the requirements of the people who work there.
The Inner House is dedicated to the clients’ demands for a stylish living or work atmosphere, whether they are planning to build a new space, or makeover an existing building, refurnish or redesign or just want to arrange existing furniture in the best possible way. The Inner House also optimises floor plans and develops individual colour and lighting concepts for their clients.
The Inner House also offers consultation for businesses – for example when it comes to optimised workplaces or recreation zones. After the initial meeting the clients can take care of the detailed planning and implementation, the commissioning of crafts and the purchase of materials, furniture and home accessories themselves. Alternatively, The Inner House also offers the client a full service package from developing the design concept to detailed implementation.
