So much value can be driven out of how a space is formed in relation to the activity and the offer.
Our approach to Interior Design starts with the space plan, be it a ground up development, a shell, or an existing building. So much value can be driven out of how a space is formed in relation to the activity and the offer.
How areas link, what are the site lines, how do guest and staff flows work, is it operationally efficient, is it space efficient and economically planned, are we optimising the front of house and minimising the back of house? All these are critical to the design process and are the bedrock of any great design.
The designed environment we then create is built around the offer, be it an established brand with a specific target audience at one end of the spectrum, or a single entity with a broad customer base and multiple experiences, and everything in between. The guest needs and their expectations drive the thinking and the solution so any given design solution can be as complex or as simple as it needs to be.
Beyond space and form, light, be it natural light or electric light, play a fundamental role in defining a space and its changing moods and ambience as one transitions through different parts of the day. Light, shade and shadow will always enhance and bring extra depth to any space.
And of course in today’s competitive market a key consideration is to keep the space busy for as many hours of the week as possible. The building is the most expensive asset, be it freehold or leasehold, and needs to work for as long as possible on any given day. A big factor that influences all aspects of the design process. The key stages of our Interior Design are summarised below.

- Preparation feasibility plans
- Preparation schedules of fixtures and fittings
- Preparation specifications of finishes
