Founder of Škoda Design + Architecture, Irena Škoda is a design architect, consultant, speaker and a sustainable performance strategist. Irena is best known for her creative and contemplative approach to design, combining two core values of her and her company’s core beliefs – beauty and sustainability with maximized benefits for her clients. While strongly advocating sustainable practices, she also believes that one does not have to conform to limited and stereotyped design principles.
Innovation is at the heart of her design philosophy and business. From tiny apartments to large scale residential properties, Irena seeks to do three things: use technology that supports her clients busy lifestyle and at the same time does not harm generations going forth, increase the market value of the property and the projects performance, and use sustainable design as a catalyst to increase health, productivity, and wellbeing for your distinctive and ideal living and working environment.
