Project definition

To establish strong foundations for each project that will align the key stakeholders and give confidence to drive forwards, it is essential to identify the client’s objectives at operational, commercial and aesthetic levels.

Typically involving research into cultural, historical, brand, environmental and regulatory issues, our teams work to understand the factors that have shaped the brief, the end-users’ expectations, the competitive environment and the extent to which forward-thinking ideas might be relevant.

  • Feasibility and operational review

Design

Working closely with you and the other consultants, our designs are developed in phases. Starting with a wide-ranging approach which explores our options, we look to establish the character of the project and the nature of the experiences we intend to create, before developing, refining and communicating in detail our design intentions.

Our objective is to demonstrate what your interior spaces will look like and how they will operate while enabling costs, timeframes, and standards to be set. We work with you to identify the challenges, whether aesthetic or technical, that must be addressed before the fabrication, construction and fit out work commences.
