More than 10 years of providing interior design services worldwide
IRD provides Interior Architecture Design Consultancy Services, with Construction Administration and Procurement advice services for Commercial and Residential property owners, developers, corporate and others involved in real estate. Over the course of dozens of international projects, our studio’s core expertise has evolved into four broad practice areas: hospitality and leisure, corporate, retail and institution.
What sets IRD apart from traditional designers and interior decorators is the vast amount of experience and field-tested knowledge we bring to bear on every client we partner with — and every project we engage in.
Many others prefer to focus their efforts on the ‘big idea’ or ‘just getting it done’. We pride ourselves in establishing a compelling and practical design vision for you, along with the critical details key to bringing your project to life on-time and on-budget.
Partnering with us means working directly with a senior leadership team of licensed architects and other interior design specialists — a unique combination of individuals who understand your unique site and region-specific requirements from the inside-out as well as the outside-in.
We always start with listening to you — understanding the goals for your project. From there, moodboards and renderings are developed to visualize the overall aesthetic and mood of the interior design concept. What results is a clearly articulated, holistic concept for the initiative, tightly interwoven with the big and small details essential to realizing effective and evocative interior design solutions.
Once the conceptual approach is approved, IRD brings its expertise to developing stamped, interior-design plans in close collaboration with architects, site managers, government-approval agencies and other constituencies critical to breaking ground. We stay with you to ensure that all site-specific details are understood and executed, and, if needed, provide additional resources for sourcing finishing material effects.
We believe our work can only be considered truly complete when a concept goes from paper to a living, breathing space that is enjoyed and used for the purposes it was designed. This has been IRD’s philosophy since Day One, and it continues to guide our work and client relationship going forward.
IRD has developed key partnerships with renowned international players, which helps support its own implementation and execution capabilities.
SenseLab deals with the design that uses the senses as tools to create objects and places that engage all our perceptions. Founded by Anna Barbara – an architect, designer and researcher – in 1968, SenseLab uses the senses to analyze transformations in design; seek new answers to the people, to the work, to their needs, to the market; innovate on the sensory dna of the projects; and design metalanguages for local answers to global questions.
Inpianta is a sourcing company for products and finishes. It provides us the edge to continuously discover new innovations and technology.
IRD is grateful to be awarded commendations for our design work from several of the world’s most respected industry associations and peer groups. While we are proud of this recognition — which spans multiple practice areas and geographical regions — we take the most pride in the Letters of Reference from our clients testifying to their satisfaction with our work and mutual partnership. We are happy to provide these references upon request as part of our proposal and bidding process.
