Setting The Scene: The Importance of a Good Design Brief
More than any other interior design sector hospitality design is built around strong narratives created for the experience the client aims to offer. To make this complex narrative believable the design has to be highly effective, incredibly functional and be executed with attention to the finest detail. Developing a solid design brief with your designer at the outset ensures important design issues and objectives are considered before design work begins.
