Our studio specializes in design for behaviour.

We have done so for almost 30 years and in this time we have learned a tremendous amount about how people behave naturally and instinctively within these social environments. We have learned the hard way that in order to design successful venues, we needed to place predictive human behaviour at the heart of what we do. We capture succinctly how most people behave most of the time in order to design spaces for the most joy and ultimately the most success. This assists us in capturing the spirit of place. 

Our Design Process

Our process starts with understanding you, your business and your customers. That being said, you are not our customer. Your customers are. We design for them. Their needs and their behavior. Its all about understanding how they behave naturally within specific environments and differs vastly across the various categories of Restaurants & Bars, Hotel & Leisure and Workplace.


Our focus is to understand how we can best frame those predictive behaviors within these categories and design environments that will result in much more delightful customer experiences - happy customer, happy client.



Truly innovative, delightful and considered solutions come from flaring before focus. That is considering inputs and points of view you would not normally think of. Core to this philosophy is an ability enhance human behaviour through architecture, interiors, styling, visualisation, and branding within an ethos of an incomparable client journey. This is central to our success.

Brief Development

We assist in formulating a design brief by taking all touch points into consideration, understanding that we are designing for your customers. We take into account our human behavioural principals and consider things that limit the brief but can potentially fuel design ambitions.

Design Concept

In alignment with the brief and business drivers, a design direction is articulated for implementation combining best practice solutions from both in and outside category. This is achieved through various iterations of visually curated pieces that best tells a story of your brand within the physical space.

Considered Implementation

Applying the design concept into the built environment with technical details and physical restraints. We take into consideration the emotional and sensorial aspect of an interior space that will best articulate the design. This is achieved through technical documentation, bespoke shopfitting drawings and unique FF&E schedules.
