Whether it’s Retail, Restaurant, Residential, or any other kind of place, our design process and products focus on the project’s target user: the guest, customer, or resident. We believe that the user’s experience and emotional reaction to the design drives its success. The design influences how we shop and why we buy; it affects the way we feel and where we go; it seduces us to stay or impels us to leave. The function is seamless and logical. Attention to sightlines, circulation, adjacencies, and focal points make the place easy to understand. Using innovative materials and memorable details keep people interested and bring people back.
Sustainability is an essential part of the design decision process. It makes economic and environmental sense that reduced consumption can lower costs and reduce waste. Therefore, in addition to defining the emotional hook during design, we consider context and site use, energy reduction and management, water efficiency, waste management, use and re-use of materials, and creating healthy indoor environments. Craig Hardman is a cofounder and team member of the Savongreen Group, which provides sustainable strategy consulting services to the Hospitality Industry.
