Yran & Storbraaten Architects (Y&S), founded in 1983, is one of the world’s leading architectural firms in the cruise vessel industry. During the last 25 years our architectural and interior design practices in the cruise industry alongside land based projects, have encompassed many large, influential projects and clients.

Our design philosophy is different than many with a diversity of styles, matched to the individual concept for each project. The inspiration for our design solutions has three main sources; the relationship with the clients, the innovative staff and the partners preferences.

Bespoke cruise vessel design services

We listen carefully to our clients. The initial briefing has many hidden wishes, which we can illuminate and develop to a higher level so the client can get even more than expected. Each client and each project has its own new challenge. The latest technical developments and trends, together with the clients styling requirements, are the basis for our design process that enables us to give that something extra. A good dialog with the client is rewarding for all parties. The clearer our clients can describe their wishes and preferences, the easier it is for us to achieve common goals. When our clients have commercial success, then we as designers feel rewarded.

Turnkey cruise vessel design

In each project we choose a carefully selected team of architects and designers, lead by an experienced project leader and project leader assistant. All members of the team give active input to the design process, and as our staff originate from different countries, our clients benefit from an amazing source of cultural experience. This helps Y&S to understand the future users taste and requirements. These highly professional groups of staff, who are strongly dedicated to their work, are the source of Y&S’ creativity.
