We work flexibly across projects, either as standalone consultants or in conjunction with architects, interior designers, and furniture suppliers. Although involvement from the early stages of a project maximises impact, we are adept at working on projects further down the line and with project constraints in play. Crucially, we also apply our expertise to fine-tuning spaces in use. When organisations move into a newly refurbished space, evaluation is needed to understand how the reality of the vision is actually working. Tweaks can be made and longer-term problems avoided if the early stage of the post-occupancy is analysed and improved upon.
We combine cutting edge methodologies like video-based behaviour mapping with social science techniques such as focus groups to deliver tailored, evidence-based design strategy. Our consulting and design strategy services include:
A post-occupancy evaluation tool used to assess space performance and advance environmental well-being
Translating environmental psychology, well-being, and social trends research into practical application and white paper reports
Evidence-based design strategy and design review services for architects, interior designers, and end-user organizations
