Interior Design - Professional Services

What is interior design?

Interior design is a creative yet technical process of designing, planning, choosing and organising layout, finishes, furnishings, furniture, fittings, lighting, colour, signage, displays and decorative elements; integrating with architectural design, building services design and other disciplines of building design to create an indoor environment with consistent design theme, recognisable composition and identifiable character (sometimes design style), for all kinds of indoor human activities such as working, living, shopping, dining, meeting, gathering, sporting, worshipping, learning, performing, trading, relaxing, assembling, servicing, researching, caring, curing, etc.

Interior design objectives

The objective of the interior design process is to achieve a set of visualized plan in the form of drawings, models, renderings, material sample boards which guide the use of an interior space; define the scale, size, form, proportion, components, composition, layout, relationship with utility layout, modulation of circulation routes, and architectural character of an interior space or groups of spaces being designed. The interior design will be used as a base to co-ordinate the preparation of other plans and schedules for procurement of furnishings, furniture, fittings, equipments, and displays. The interior design will be detailed and co-ordinated with building services layout for guiding fitout work to turn design ideas into physical interiors.

As multi-discipline interior design consultancy, we allocate experienced interior designer, interior design architect, and sometimes interior decorator for interiors projects. Our approach to interior design is more than to decorate, but to create interior design which is integrated with the architecture, the structure, and the organization of building elements, building services and building materials of a building.

We design and prepare interior design documents consisting of plans, elevations, details, schedules, material sample boards and specifications to illustrate various elements of an interior design concept, including partition layouts, furniture layouts, power and communications locations, acoustic plans, lighting designs, furniture layouts, materials and finishes. Very often, these drawings are also used for marketing purpose of interior space.  Where appropriate, 3D animated walk-thru will also be used to illustrate an interior design concept.
