Amy Aswell: The design master
Amy Aswell, one part of the design duo at Beta Form Industries, is looking to help transform Sacramento into a world-class city, one interior space at a time. With projects that include the interior design of Hock Farm Craft & Provisions, Cafe Bernardo at Pavilions and the Hanford House Inn in Sutter Creek, BFI is embarking on a lofty new project: the Warehouse Artist Lofts project, which aims to revitalize a century-old space at 1108 R Street. Aswell’s vision for the mixed-use building is to create interior spaces that pull from historical references, while injecting a modern aesthetic into its dilapidated innards—a mix of old-world charm with a decidedly fresh approach.
