Interiors

How We Work

We aim to take our clients on a journey. We draw inspiration from the history, character, or quality of a space, building or local area to create an interior experience that tells a story. We combine textiles and materials with bespoke, modern finishes to create spaces that uplift and honour their setting. Starting with a concept, we develop tactile mood boards and sketches, before working with our in-house visualisation team to translate the space for our clients, providing a visual experience tailored to our client’s requirements.

Our Interiors team work collaboratively and creatively, both within the Franklin Ellis office and alongside outside consultants. We deliver specialised interior-focused projects and assist our Architectural division to provide a coordinated approach to design and implementation.

We create detailed, diverse, high-quality design concepts that excite and improve the well-being of all end users. Our experience covers a wide range of design sectors including hospitality, commercial offices, historic building interiors, schools and universities, and healthcare. Our team is fully BIM integrated, enabling them to translate interior packages into clear visuals and renders.

Concept Design
During this initial design stage, our Team meet with Clients to understand their needs and desires for a space. We aim to transform practical requirements into a comprehensive narrative, drawing inspiration from the history, character, or quality of a space. We produce mood boards and sketches to transform our vision into a tangible article and create an interior experience that tells a story.
Detailed Design
Our team translates initial concept design into a more detailed design including the specification of finishes, furnishings, flooring and fixtures. To communicate our developed design we produce great quality internal views using use Enscape 3D software. Subsequently the detailed design is captured in technical drawings and specifications for contractors. Our designers’ model in a BIM environment using Revit, allowing us to output technical drawings, schedules, rendered images and seamlessly leading to high-resolution visualisations.
