As well as bringing a strong and cohesive visual identity to a space, our interiors are designed to influence behaviour and promote best use. Our designers consider layout, space planning, lighting design, colour schemes, furniture and fittings to suit each environment.
Our in-house interior design studio works closely with our architects to fully integrate interior schemes from the initial stages of a project, and is also experienced in turning fit-out projects around to tight deadlines. Our interior designers bring fresh perspective to a building and are able to both complement and challenge the architecture.
“Like people, a building’s personality has an external appearance and an internal landscape. When we pass over the threshold, a space can be transformed by its interior and the truth of the place amplified.”

Our experienced team of space planners can quickly test occupancy levels for any given floor plate and function. We advise estate departments on space standards and benchmark all of our projects across each sector. Strategic planning of sequencing rooms and spaces can increase efficiency and aid user experience.
We are working with the best scientists in the world to deliver cutting-edge research facilities in the fields of health, surgery, physics, neuroscience, biochemistry and bio-informatics. We design modern, highly flexible wet and dry labs, super labs for teaching and specialist support areas. We have delivered tissue culture suites, laser labs, fly behaviour labs, environmental control rooms imaging suites and biodiversity rooms. We have knowledge of all major lab suppliers and can design bespoke lab fit-outs.
Furniture, Fittings and Equipment (FF&E)
We have an up-to-date knowledge of the furniture market and can advise clients on best procurement methods for fitting out their spaces. We work with furniture designers to create bespoke pieces for particular projects, such as the Bartlett School of Architecture, and are skilled in designing specialist joinery.
We are experienced in working with listed buildings and have expertise in improving accessibility and sensitively adapting listed buildings for renewed use. We work in close consultation with English Heritage and local planning authorities and conduct our own research to reinstate and preserve the true character of a building. We can successfully integrate new technologies into listed interiors without compromising the integrity of the original finishes.
Creating an Identity
We regard every project as unique and seek to create an individual identity for each. We work from the inside out to choose materials, colours, applied graphics, signage and branding which will strengthen the design and brand. We have extensive experience collaborating with marketing departments, graphic designers and artists.
