Normally an interior design starts before the decision to renovate or re-locate. When re-locating, you will visit a lot off empty spaces. As not everyone is capable to see the possibillities of a space, it can be very difficult to make an well informed choice. How can you avoid missing out on a prime location? In the excitement on a upcoming property lease or purchase, the sky is often the limit. The selling party or landlord often raises expectations that in the long run might differ from the ones you are having. At GRIP we have extensive experience and can assist in this process to deliver a real turn key experience.
“GRIP guided us very practically, from design choices to how the spaces are used; something that is very important. ”

This way we keep a grip on the balance between design and functionality in a new office from the first moment. Read more about our approach in 3 phases: Concept Design, Technical Design and Construction Management.
The difference between a beautiful or good interior design lies in the balance between design and functionality. The focus on only one of these aspects and the lack of a thoroughly tested foundation can cause a design to fail.
A conceptual foundation functions as a coat rack. Practical choices such as colors, materials and shapes can be distilled from this. Designs that lack this foundation can often be recognized by a strong hang towards trend colors and shapes.
In many organizations, a trend-based design is not desirable a these often don’t last for more than a year. When choosing this approach a large investment becomes obsolete quickly and the look and feel of the organization falls out of line with her goals. To counter this a design needs to be created that goes beyond the trend and matches the mision and vision statement of your organization.
