The Department of the Interior collaborates with its clients to make their personal visions come to life. Conceptual design is one of the studio's strengths and a favorite part of the process. Developing a strong concept gets the project off on the right foot and leads to a consistent and cohesive final design. 

A typical project includes concept design, programming/space planning, design development, construction drawings and installation management. Some vendors we typically team with include graphic designers, sign painters, lighting designers, millworkers, architects and contractors.

We create 2D and 3D renderings early in the conceptual design phase to help the client more clearly imagine the overall look and feel of the project.

When the project is complete, we want people to walk into your place, not past it. 

Art Procurement
Have an office space, restaurant or residence that lacks spark or a cohesive look? With our background in museum studies, exhibition design and art installation, we can help you with permanent acquisitions or a rotating gallery to get the appropriate look for your space.
