The Science of Workplace Design.™

Let's talk.

We'd love to hear about your project and help get you started.






We are commercial interior design and workplace consultants.


We help our clients solve complex, strategic, workplace problems through effective research and evidenced-based design.


For over three decades we have investigated the links between the performance of workplaces and the performance of the people who use them.

Our approach has been consistent. By working closely with our clients, we uncover the underlying drivers for their workplace transformation and deliver high performing work environments that achieve their business objectives.


Our research tools deliver a comprehensive evaluation of your workplace’s performance, providing a data-driven understanding of the way your organisation’s processes, people and spaces operate.

Using this data-orientated approach to workplace design, we help you to uncover areas of greatest opportunity to improve your workplace’s and organisation’s performance.

By putting your people at the heart of the process, combined with a commitment to a measurable approach to workplace design, we deliver environments that fit seamlessly with your organisation, and for the people who work within them.

Reinforced by our research and data, our aim is to provide a coherent, long-term workplace strategy that aligns with your organisational strategy.


The best workplaces deliver improved performance.
