Our company name, cura, is born out of the word “curated,” which means that something is “carefully chosen and thoughtfully organized or presented.” At cura, this is exactly what we do, who we are.
We passionately pursue innovation that is aspirational—transformative—with our partners. All of these tenets shape our methodology, one that is rooted in a profound understanding of the fingerprint of each project, one that inspires and compels us to live out our creed:
