We have a passion for creating memorable experiences that surprise and delight both our clients and their customers. From bustling retail outlets to tranquil luxury safari lodges and spas, our aim is to imagine the best experience we can and then bring it to life.
We believe design should be rooted in a firm understanding of our clients’ goals, the essence of their brands and the needs of their customers.
Our practice is known for delivering real-world solutions designed to meet 21st-century challenges.
Internationally, our designs can be found in numerous business sectors including retail, hospitality, leisure, corporate and finance. Our team brings together individuals skilled in a number of diverse disciplines, from a background in architecture and interior architecture to brand marketing, retail design and project administration.
From hotels for international operators in Sandton and Lagos to flagship, boutique and national retail roll-outs for international fashion, jewellery and lifestyle brands, our broad skill set allows us to take on a wide range of projects within the retail and hospitality industries.
Our Interior Architecture and Interior Decoration divisions work synergistically to ensure our projects dovetail seamlessly to produce results that are far greater than the sum of their parts.
So, if like so many of our clients you want to work with a team that knows how to deliver innovative designs that make a significant and measurable contribution to your bottom line, then please give us a call or drop us a mail.
During the briefing phase, we will immerse ourselves in your Brand as well as gain a thorough understanding of the business drivers behind your brief. This is often an opportunity for us to add real value by sharing insight born of hard nosed business experience.
Our award-winning creative teams, whose design experience spans the globe from New York to Japan, know that we work in an industry where you're only as good as your last project. It's this knowledge and the desire to continue to be the best that ensures that you get the very latest thinking on every project we undertake for you.
This phase is critical as it represents the point where the design vision is translated into a blueprint on which all manufacturing and construction will be based. The accuracy of this translation not only affects the look + feel of the design, but by implication also the timings and budget. We insist that the lead conceptual designer works closely with the CAD team to ensure a faithful interpretation of the concept. We also work with our manufacturing partners to develop, prototype and value engineer our designs for your sign-off prior to going to production.
Project administration is about being super organised before, during and after manufacture, and construction. It's about knowing which of a hundred documents needs to be submitted to whom and by when. It's about building relationships through excellent communication. We take the headache out of project administration by keeping it entirely in-house. All you need to do is sign the tenancy agreement and we take care of the rest.
Execution is everything. Even the best designs can only be realised through masterful execution. All the effort that has gone into getting the designs to this point hinges on the quality of the build phase. That is why we prefer to offer a Full Turnkey service. One where we take on the responsibility for delivering your vision from concept through to the handing over of the keys.
We develop flagship concepts which are often rolled out nationally and internationally. As part of this process we will value engineer the designs to suit the profiles of individual roll-out sites. Thereby delivering fit-for-purpose solutions designed to suit location specific budgets.
A significant proportion of our income is from repeat business. Our clients know that design is an iterative process and as part of our service, we make a point of continually reviewing and refreshing our designs . This allows us to incorporate the feedback we receive and to ensure that the designs remain current and relevant.
