Whether the project is a new build or refurbishment, One has the expertise to transform mere spaces into functional and inspiring environments.
The interior of a building has a fundamental influence on how people live, work and feel. Our aim is to create a space with a distinctive character which is perfectly in tune with the users and function of the building.
Our designers combine expert space planning, wide knowledge of materials and products, and strong artistic vision to create a holistic ambience which adds real value to buildings.
Engaging our interior design team at an early stage will ensure that space, form and functionality are considered from an imaginative perspective. We work alongside our architects and engineers to ensure that interior aspirations are integrated with the building fabric. We keep a close eye on building designs as they evolve to ensure a client’s concept is preserved – down to the finest detail.
Making the right statement
We work very closely with clients to develop their brief and ensure that the results meet their aspirations. Building commissioners, owners, managers and users can all enjoy the imaginative, creative interiors that evoke exactly the right response.
Our experience spans many sectors including: healthcare, retail, residential, commercial and hospitality and the benefits of good interior design are being increasingly recognised by the corporate world. Entrance lobbies are often the first physical opportunity for organisations to express their presence to visitors and we have designed an extremely varied range of these statement making yet welcoming interiors. We also have wide experience of incorporating branding within settings such as retail outlets and cafes. Here we employ a range of imaginative design techniques to convey the visual identity subtly yet powerfully.
The human factor
Our highly qualified designers understand the importance of an empathetic approach to interior design; the human approach. We balance the aesthetic and functional elements to create interiors that work with people.
Wayfinding, especially in larger complexes, can be stressful. While our architect colleagues will play their part in making buildings intuitively easy to navigate, we develop effective signage strategies – often using graphics and colour coding – that provide reassurance along with clear guidance.
Through Building Information Modelling (BIM) we can develop concepts through to detailed deliverable stage in a completely secure 3D computer environment. This reduces risk for our clients and ensures that results do not disappoint.Back To Services
