Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
Places that encourage communication, collaboration and creativity do not occur by accident. They are the result of careful, considered and clever design. We and our clients judge the success of interiors we design by the way people use and enjoy them. It is about the way people feel when they experience the space.
We have extensive experience designing interiors for offices and other commercial spaces. Our designs provide a sense of meaning, connection and belonging. Good design is about matching the client’s needs and helping them meet their objectives.
We create learning places that enable problem solving,
communication and collaboration — the skills demanded of today’s students.
Original and exciting hospitality venues, memorable guest experiences and seamless operational environments do not happen by chance. Desirable places are the products of thorough research, open collaboration and responsive, sensitive design.
We are committed to responding to our clients’ brief and creating original, authentic and individual interiors that stand the test of time.

The building was designed to showcase the Institute’s commitment to sustainable practices by recycling a disused structure, reducing waste by reusing building materials and using sustainable design principles.
The fitout of the building features recycled and recyclable materials, low emissions finishes and sustainably sourced natural products in paints, carpets, linoleum, vitrified tiles, eco blinds, PET pinboards, forest timbers and eco wool fabrics.
