• 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!

  • Eco-Friendly Food Containers are Great for a Restaurant Branding - Commercial Interior Design News

    Beginning with the summer of 2015, New York restaurant businesses will be banned from using plastic foam food containers, cups and plates. New York is not the first city to adopt such a measure. San Francisco, Seattle and Minneapolis among others already have such laws in place. More cities are likely to follow.

    What are the alternatives for businesses in the food service industry that used to rely on such products to serve their customers? Fortunately, while the soon-to-be-banned containers are made of what is known as expanded polystyrene and are unrecyclable, there are already sustainable food packaging options on the market.

    These are not only good options for businesses that have to comply with such a ban, but also for all the food service business owners who understand the power of branding. If every product used in running their business can become part of their brand in the customers’ eyes, this is even more important when it comes to a product that customers take home.

    Old unappealing plastic foam containers are not designed to impress. Using an eco-friendly, well designed alternative may, in fact, prove a huge plus. It is not only that today’s customers appreciate environmentally minded businesses, but stepping aside from plastic foam containers also suggests that the business owners are concerned with their customers’ health. This can only be good for any restaurant business brand.

    Other innovative products can become an important part of an effective restaurant branding strategy. In the UK, for instance, Kavis, a well-known supplier of packaging and food presentation solutions, provides printable packaging products for both hot and cold take-out foods and drinks. These products are made of recyclable materials, are cost-effective and come with the extra benefit of being easily personalized, thus serving as a perfect medium for a restaurant branding.
