WHO ARE WE?

We are a small specialized team of retail, restaurant and franchise store designers based in Johannesburg. We offer a full-service Interior Design and Architectural Design service dedicated to making everyday places extraordinary.
We also consult, contract and freelance to other major design firms, lending our specialized expertise and experience. We are passionate about retail and all it entails from branding, store design and architecture to roll-out implementation. We take each and every project as an opportunity to tell a story, influence behaviour and ultimately empower customers to become your brand ambassadors.

WE DESIGN MEANINGFUL EXPERIENCES. EXPERIENCES WITH EMOTION AND PURPOSE THAT CHANGE THE WAY PEOPLE THINK, FEEL AND DO.

WHAT DO WE DO?

We create compelling store environments that inspire and resonate with consumers. We focus on expert customer focused design, working with store, restaurant and franchise owners to create a profitable, functional and beautiful store with a strong brand presence. We maximize ROI with efficient space planning to utilize every millimetre of your space.

Business has increasingly looked to design to help differentiate its product, services and enhance customer experience. The interior design of a business or franchise is perhaps the most concrete, consistent and lasting component of your brand.

When someone enters your store, restaurant or franchise environment they enter your brand. That brand conveys who you are and sets you apart from your competitors. It is not merely a space, but it’s an experience. With every element – line, shape, colour, and light – we empower your brand to make a statement. We create distinguished brands and memorable environments.

We work with businesses of all sizes, from single store and restaurants to chain-store operation and franchise roll-outs. Let us help you reinforce the emotion of your brand in the interior of your business.

Our work connects with people on an emotional level – through brands, places and experiences. No matter the size we specialise in being able to visually and three-dimensionally carry a brand’s identity through to create a meaningful, sensory-filled experience.

OUR SERVICES

We offer a full turn-key design solution. A client can use all of our services as a turn-key solution or only the areas of expertise required in the process. We are involved every step of the way, from concept and presentation, through revision and documentation to final implementation and handover.
