    We have seen a number of new and cool bakery and pastry store designs hit the interior design blogs of the world in the past few months.

Designed by Sander Architecten the new conference rooms at the Rabobank Headquarters in […]

    Sometimes the simplest idea is the best idea and for long rectangular shaped retail space getting that right idea can sometimes prove to be a very frustrating crusade. This is where the feature wall comes in, if you get the feature wall right like today’s project did then you can blow people away by the results.

You see Starbucks were usually my go to guys when it came to finding […]

    In our twitter bio we say that we “love meetings over good coffee” and that we certainly do, which is why today’s feature project had to have a place on our blog. Hotel De Vendôme in Paris has opened the doors of their exquisite restaurant that serves the most luxurious and decadent afternoon coffee in the French Capital, yes you read that right, afternoon […]

    Our love for all things different is something that many of our clients comment on, different doesn’t need to be new or innovative difference can be a combination of many things that break the norm. Take todays feature project as an example. What makes Bobby Gin in Barcelona so different to most other cocktail bars in your local town or city is the attention […]

    I often tell my clients that the most important element in most interior architecture and design projects is lighting design. Poor lighting can make the best design in the world look ordinary or bad, great lighting can have the opposite effect, great lighting can transform a flat project design into a full bodied design.
