Commercial

We take the time to understand your business before designing a memorable and unique interior design around your vision, target public, surroundings, and audience. Whether your project is a cafe, restaurant, retail space or corporate office, it is a challenge we will embrace. Considering the needs of a project and developing a solution that encompasses the technical, aesthetic, business and emotional elements, we treat every project as a unique opportunity to create imaginative and timeless designs. A well-designed commercial space will not only impress your customers, but also inspire staff, boosting productivity and morale. We can assist you designing several types of spaces, such as:

  1. Offices
  2. Retail stores
  3. Hotels
  4. Restaurants, cafes and bars
  5. Apartment fit-outs
  6. Medical center and clinics
  7. Gyms and fitness centers

1.1 Commercial Initial Consultation

This consultation will provide you with the foundation to create a positive outcome around your business vision and target public. Designed around information and direction, this consultation involves in depth discussion of your project outline, budget and needs. This service can include the following, depending on your needs and information that will be provided at the time of the appointment:

  • Spatial planning recommendations
  • Interior/Exterior colour scheme recommendations, including feature walls
  • Lighting fixtures and fitting advice
  • Window furnishings and general finishes, furniture and accessories recommendations

This service works based on an hourly rate scheme of $120. If written or more detailed recommendations are needed, an extra fee will be required. If the client decides to engage with us for a project, we will reimburse this initial consultation fee in full.

1.2 Commercial Design Packages

The Commercial Interior Design packages are divided between two categories: Basic and Advanced, and can be selected depending on the level of involvement necessary for each project. However, it is important to note that especially for commercial projects where a higher level of personality is aimed, such as bars, restaurants, shops, and lobbies, we highly recommend that the client goes with the Advanced package, as the ‘final touches’ are essential to produce the right atmosphere, personality and feel for the space.
