Sustainable design - without compromising on performance
Critical to the success of any commercial interior is longevity and sustainability. A professionally designed interior is an important investment, one that will help you utilise the most of your space, and create an environment which reflects your corporate personality. It should also be a pleasure to be in - whether to work, shop, relax or be entertained.
Not only does the space need to work efficiently, it needs to be comfortable too. The latter consideration involves looking at ergonomic designs for workstations and reception desks, as well as understanding the impact of sound and light on each space.
Hence understanding what it will be used for, and how it will work is critical.
We’re also conscious that our clients are increasingly conscious about sustainability and the environment. So part of our design recommendations will focus on eco-friendly materials and energy efficient lighting.
Constant daily wear and tear means we need to design interiors that have real longevity. This means looking at the resilience of materials and flooring that can withstand constant cleaning and maintenance, without losing its looks.
Another element in our design thinking is flexibility and adaptability. As companies change and evolve, so do their space requirements - so it’s important for us to think about how the interiors we design can be adapted to accommodate change, including new technologies as well as growth and expansion.
And finally, we need to understand the dynamics of your business. How do people communicate, engage with each other, hold meetings or entertain visitors. At a time when we’re all immersed in the connectivity provided by technology, a successful interior is one that recognises that people need to interact with each other, move about and be human.
