    In this post we are looking at Bookstore design. With all the controversy over the recent Borders announcement that they are going into liquidation we have been questioning the viability and longevity of the high street stellar, the Bookstore. With online book ordering levels on Amazon at an all time high, we have to wonder, has the bookstore reached its shelf life? Perhaps large […]

  • In this post we are looking at Flat Pak or Prefab Houses. Much like in our containers of hope article we are impressed with this concept as it is a concept that really can make a difference to people from all walks of life. This design idea is not strictly limited to the wealthy or elite but opens to a broad range of people […]

  • Sustainable, eco-friendly, stylish, sleek, sexy and green are only a few words we used to describe the MOOD’s hotel located within the ever popular Prague city centre. The hotel was designed by Czech architects Vladimir Žák and Roman Vrtiška. Prague has seen a renaissance over the last 10 years in hotel, retail, F&B design and in tourism, the demand for high end and trendy […]

  • From our about page and malarkey post we hope that you can see that one of the core reasons we set up Studio EM was so as we could make a difference to other people’s lives through our designs.

    An integral part to being a good designer and a good design company is the ability to progress with time, to keep up with the latest trends, pioneer trends and to research new design principals. We love research as it gives us a chance to step away from the drawing board for a couple of hours every now and again, pop the kettle on […]

  • “Brand extension”, this is a phrase we often use when discussing projects with clients. The interior of an outlet must be designed in such a way that the physical appearance of it is an extension of the brand. If the design correlates in no way to the brand or the identity the synergy is completely shot. A great retail example of brand extension through […]

    We like to pride ourselves as being cinema design specialists; this is an area of the interior architecture industry that Emma has really made her mark on with her work for Cine Royal. However we are not “know-it-all’s” and enjoy coming across other tremendous pieces of design from other designers across the globe. We discussed recently how a shift in movement back to the […]

    Clients often ask for the newest, most modern or innovative design for their store or restaurant. After a lovely meeting today with some of the old guard of Dubai’s retail world we got into a discussion about how design almost needs to go full circle back to the olden days to be classed as being innovative in todays market. As we drove back to […]
