We carefully consider the purpose, efficiency, comfort and aesthetic of the interior spaces of the project to arrive at the optimum design solutions.

In response to your brief we plan, arrange and style the space for effective use with particular emphasis on space allocation, traffic flow, furniture, fixtures, furnishings and surface finishes.

We can custom design or specify furniture, lighting, walls, flooring, colour, fabric and art work to produce an environment to suit your individual needs.

Whether your budget is large or small, we have the expertise to work within it. The fees are more than offset by what you save in time, hassles and errors. Discussion about fees is essential. It is important to ensure you have a clear understanding of the method of charging before work starts.

Fee structures can be negotiated or a fixed design fee set based on a percentage of the value of the project, or charged on a time basis. Alternatively a quote can be submitted for the cost of the work required.
