Welcome to Friends Interior Arc!

Where our passion unites with our career!

We are a design firm, and we love what we do. As young, energetic and creative professionals, we want to make your dream space a reality. Ideas are valuable as long as the execution is right. We do not just give ideas, we help you execute them to exceed expectations. Friends Interior Arc is a Colombo based startup looking forward to revolutionize the industry by providing end to end interior designs at an affordable price.

We give individual attention & create interiors to reflect your personality, which are efficient, functional & beautiful, as design only & with implementation depending on the client's need.

Design Process - Once the client contacts us we will have an initial meeting with the client on the prospective site. After we discuss & understand the clients needs & specifications the site is measured.
Next we choose a colour theme that compliments the clients requirements & the site conditions. A measured drawing & initial design is done. This is presented to the client at the next meeting. The design is then modified or finalized depending on the client's input.

Implementation of the design - if required we undertake the implementation of the design. We work with either our own or the client's contractors to take the design from paper & implement it on site. We oversee the execution of the drawing to ensure it is done in the required quality & standards.

Hi... I'm

Tharini Kotagama

I am a past pupil of Ladies College, who went on to study Interior Architecture at NSBM, through a degree programme conducted by the Limkokwing University of Creative Design where I met my future colleague & friend, Safiyya. During the course & after graduating I was fortunate enough to intern at a leading architectural firm. Next, together with Safi I went on to become Co-founder & designer at Friends Interior Arc.

To me, FIA is a joint effort of two souls who share the same dream & passion to create beautiful spaces that are affordable & unique.
