It started with the love for design. Since love is not enough, we put in the extra hours to perfect our skills, we walked the extra mile into understanding our clients, we befriended our own insecurities, we never settled for something we didn’t believe in or stand for.
You aren’t born a powerhouse. You become one. You turn yourself into one. How? No shortcuts, just short-circuits: you rewire yourself into better versions of yourself through every project, you find the right people to accompany you in this process and you do the best every time you get a chance.
This is us, 441 Design Powerhouse. Nice to meet you.
If there is someone in our team who enjoys codes and cyphers, that someone is Octavian. He loves deconstructing the creative process to identify the rational and emotional blocks that one needs to lay down the foundation for a great idea. He is into building with his own hands, enjoying the physical aspect of his job as an architect. Whenever he builds something, he rebuilds himself.
Șerban doesn’t have an ‘OFF’ button when it comes to being up to date with the latest technologies, news and trends regarding design and architecture.

There is no way to put this mildly and, fortunately, no need to: Anca's energy could light up a whole city. Her favourite destination is the other side of fear and she travels there often, constantly outdoing herself, constantly challenging herself and constantly making us feel like we can all conquer the world as long as we are together.
Alina is feisty and outspoken, but her imaginarium is delicate and unconventional. Obsessed with details and dreaming of living in a John Sargent painting while running through baroque cities on the music of Alondra de la Para, she is the one with an overview of things to see what needs to be improved to turn better into the best.
A very important member of our team, he enjoys taking naps in the sun, going for long inspirational walks, wagging his tail at totally random people and snacking whenever possible. A huge lover of design, he is inspired mostly by those who use their hands in what they create, especially if they create a sensation of pleasure in his fury creamy coat when they pet him.
