Monocot takes joyous pride carefully curated aesthetics improvised across its numerous projects. Regardless of scale or program, consistency of Style is best framed in the identity of MONOCOT – characterized as a typology of botany species whose floral petals bloom in multiple of threes. Monocot believes in Design not as an unexplainable abstract, but as an aesthetical inspiration derived from the consistency of Natural Order, Proportion and Practicality practiced in the craving of intimate spaces to love and live in.
