Creating workspaces a place to be in

Commercial projects such Office & Lobby interior design are all about business. They are work spaces that focus solely on the business venture and the matter of generating profits and revenue. However, besides projecting business values, Offices must create an environment that fosters well-being as well as hard work. Therefore, it’s important to understand the core essence of the business and the types of values that they try to instil in their work force.

Common considerations of Office Interior Design Services

However, as design is important, full attention to a realistic budget is advised. As design does affect performance, it isn’t the deciding factor to a company’s success.

Then, make sure it’s all wrapped up in a corporate design concept that brings true life to the business venture.

  • It’s important to follow all set guidelines of office buildings and make sure the clients are aware of what can and cannot be done during renovation works

  • Adhering the management restrictions and limiting inconvenience to other tenants is always a concern and at times unavoidable.
  • Restricting certain design elements that may look great but not necessarily be practical for the smooth and efficient running of an operation
  • Trying to incorporate all the wishes of each department within an organization should be limited to their core requirements and thus allocate budget better served to increase revenue

Design and Decor for Asian Hospitality

Hotel and hospitality clients are a breed in themselves. Every hotel no matter the star rating either has a concept in mind or an international standard look and feel that must be adhered to. As an interior design firm, this type of client requires a vast amount of R&D as their hundreds if not thousands of guest weekly have the power to make or break their business. Thus, understanding their vision or brand and still incorporating a cultural twist that appeals to both the local and international market is imperative.

Creating a seamless flow to facilitate the guest experience must be thought of very carefully. Allowing the guests to manoeuvre through the property with ease fosters a good experience as the hotel is new to most guests and creating a design and flow with regard to its facilities and features is an aspect that is rarely considered yet very important.

Common Considerations of landed properties design Work

It is sometimes overlooked that each and every department within a hotel have very valuable knowledge and experience to contribute to the guest experience.

Allowing each department to express their views in most advantageous to the design concept and more importantly the construction process. Hotels generally have budgets where compromises are required within the design. Thus, putting the money where the guest feels the biggest impact is a key factor.

While carrying out renovation works in Landed properties some factors come into play, such as

Making dream homes from the start

A developer’s main responsibility is to build and sell. It is at this point where we are asked to come in to wrap up the project into a package that appeals to the greatest number of potential buyers. Therefore, it is important to fully understand the project and the customers. A show unit has only a moment or two upon the prospective buyer entering to make an impression. At this point, they decide whether it is worth their while to look around or to just move one.

Understanding the demographics of the buyer and their lifestyle assists greatly in the overall design concept provided for this type of project. Today’s urban buyers are particularly attracted to purchasing due to the show flat’s overall look and feel. Thus, it is wise to renovate a unit within the budgetary constraints of the buyer and utilizing the renovation budget to the max to create a home where everyone wants to live.

Initial space planning and structural space allocation is important to maximize the appropriate space for regular living.

Common Considerations of Show Units Interior Design

Properties are most appealing by square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Thus, initial space planning and structural space allocation is important to maximize the appropriate space for regular living. Often, bedrooms are constructed too small for an effective use of space and can then seem as a deterrent to the sales process.

Proper thought must be put in to design according to space restrictions. So, home office, music rooms, libraries or just additional storage space should be incorporated into the design concept to give buyers a realistic understanding how their family can best utilize the space. Limiting the need to make structural changes to the show unit in terms of extension or wall modification is advised as buyers don’t want the costly burden of structural changes even before considering the interior design renovation.

Things to take note of while doing Show Units are:
  • Working closely with developer / architects from the construction design phases is important but often overlooked
  • Allocating a realistic budget that meets to design appeal but also the buyers expected renovation budget is vital to creating a show unit that is sellable
  • Limited the use of vibrant colours within the expensive portion of the renovation is advised as neutral colours are more appealing to the greatest number of potential buyers yet punching up the design concept with less expensive home furnishing and accessories
  • Be fully prepared, organized and efficient is essential for show room renovations. Deadlines are tight in the segment and meeting the clients design expectation and timeline is a must
  • An effective communication line is very important as show units tend to have many people and departments involved and the communication needs to be established clearly
