II BY IV DESIGN is guided by a design philosophy that is client focused and we are known for creating interiors with longevity that surpass trend. Each project is unique, with its own distinctive story, there is no signature look to our work simply the “right” look which results in a portfolio that is quite diverse.

In this month’s newsletter we take a look at Aquabella Condominium whose innovative form influenced its interiors; Dan and Keith share pictures of iconic sights in Rome; and we reveal the results of the highly prestigious SBID International Design Awards ~ a UK based competition that elevates style with recognition for some of the world’s most exceptional projects.


Italy’s capital is a sprawling, cosmopolitan city with nearly 3,000 years of globally influential art, architecture and culture on display. From ancient Roman architecture and the Baroque styled Spanish Steps to high-fashion retail stores and a side-street delicatessen; Dan and Keith share a taste of their recent trip to Rome.

The third and most luxurious addition to the Bayside community, Aquabella is a boutique condominium with a unique L-shaped and terraced design conceived specifically to maximize views of the lake, city and surrounding parks. Following the contours of the waterfront, the 173 unit residence has a distinctive form and will boast an array of social and recreational facilities.
