Isabella Asiimwe is an architect and visual artist based in Uganda. Isabella collaborates with skilled local artisans, a quality applied at varied scales in her ever-evolving multi-skill practice that spans interior architecture, eco fashion and film. She earned a degree in Architecture from the Makerere University of Kampala and a Master’s of Arts in Design from Goldsmiths University of London. 

In 2014, Isabella founded isabella isabeau: a studio embodying versatility and ecological resilience grounded in wellness, waste reduction, and local partnership. Her studio process embraces slow design with an intrinsic commitment to elevating native-making processes and techniques. Isabella’s ethnographic approach to design evokes an elevated material experience in her spaces. A lot of her work with the local artisanal community enriches studio isabella isabeau’s vision of expanding Ugandan Eco Contemporary Design Living.
