Our retail practice combines industry-leading design excellence with the strength to execute retail projects of all kinds around the world. Our work includes new retail concept design and development as well as implementation and roll-out services for established store design concepts. We also work with building and shopping center owners to improve the value of their properties by making them more suitable for the needs of today’s retail tenants.
We build supportive and long-term relationships with our clients, often becoming our clients’ trusted advisor to support their needs as they evolve over time. Our design approach starts with the client and their business strategy; it’s about serving the client’s aspirations, not ours, and creating a retail environment that reflects their brand, engages customers, connects to their entire retail strategy, and drives revenue. Our in-house Branding Studio enables us to bring particular sensitivity to integrating the brand into the built environment.
Our work has five key areas of focus: specialty stores, department stores and shop-in-shops, food & beverage, health & wellness, and landlord services.
We have significant experience in creating new retail concepts for our clients, and in implementing existing concepts in new locations.
We have worked for a number of leading department store brands, and we have worked for brands to create new shop-in-shop experiences inside department stores.

Health & Wellness
We have particular expertise in environments designed to promote health & wellness, including spas and fitness centers.
