• Commercial Interior Design

    Great space is not branding - great feeling is! We don't just design your space, we make you feel good! It’s not a secret that the built environment greatly affects human behavior, emotional and physical health, and our overall well-being. It is our responsibility to work together with our client (you) on creating an environment that enhances human experience and improves customers’ emotional and physical health.

    Combined years of experience in commercial architectural design and access to any architecture style (sleek and contemporary to traditional) will be at your disposal when you choose us as your creative partner.

    Increased portion of our work is the design of restaurants, retail showrooms, hotels, salons and spas. We also design corporate interiors and work a lot with developers. Our clients recognize that customers "buy with their eyes" and that powerful branding has to be embodied in the design from the start. Please view some samples in our design portfolio on the left. We would love to hear about your commercial interior or other design needs and ideas!

  • Precision and Art in Baccarat’s Store Façade - Commercial Interior Design News

    Via architecturaldigest.com
    Designer: Rafael de Cárdenas Ltd./Architecture at Large

    A façade that sets the mood and tells a story is an important part in building brand awareness. Before entering the Baccarat crystal flagship store in Manhattan, customers get a sense of the luxury and craftsmanship inside with a single glance at the exquisite store front.

    The store front and interior wear the signature of Rafael de Cárdenas, well known for his clean designs and avant-garde elements. During its more than 250 years of existence, Baccarat has become synonymous with style and tradition, yet the designer’s innovative style is a perfect match for this French company whose longevity is an art in itself.

    The façade uses a point-supported glass system that allows for maximum visibility of the store interior. Spanning the store’s two stories, the etched glass-frit wall is an artistic take on the very techniques of crystal cutting and faceting. A triangle pattern creates a 3-D effect and mimics the sharp yet graceful angles of crystal and its dynamic reflections.

    The light from inside lends depth to the two-dimensional surface and adds to the glamorous effect. The alternation between transparent and semi-transparent triangles allows passers-by to peek in, yet retains a sense of things to be discovered that brings customers in. This is a perfect way to define a brand and attract customers with smart design choices.

    The rigorous geometric pattern suggests the precision and meticulousness involved in Baccarat’s artisanal craftsmanship. However, the overall effect is elegant and ethereal, a testimonial of what goes into creating a thing of beauty. Beyond the façade, the luxury crystal pieces seem to continue the story started by the store front, with the same perfect combination of precision and art.
