The breadth of knowledge gained in the construction industry combined with design expertise in lighting, interior space planning and bespoke furniture design has meant that C+S are able to approach projects in an holistic manner. We understand that a beautifully designed interior space can only be achieved when the core principals and quality of construction has been put in place. Form follows function is our mantra and one that is at the heart of all our projects.
The core principal of any architectural, interior or furniture design should be function. When planning a major refurbishment, new build or a one off room scheme, C+S will help to establish the optimum use of a space with the future occupant’s lifestyle at the forefront of the design. Focusing on how a space will be used and how it connects with the rooms around it to create flow is crucial to achieving a successful scheme and forms the basis for your lighting and furniture plans. Consulting with our interior specialists can influence architectural decisions which is why we would encourage engaging us as early on in the planning process as possible.
The importance of lighting an interior space should never be overlooked. A room design can be perfectly planned and executed, but it is the careful placement of architectural, decorative and task lighting that will bring a scheme to life. Lighting completes the look and enhances fabrics, finishes and decorative features.
Linking in with the first stage of spatial planning; lighting design should be a key consideration before starting a project if you want to optimise the impact of your carefully chosen interior design. The earlier spatial planning and lighting design are incorporated the better, as once plans are issued to the construction team, opportunities to incorporate lighting features maybe lost.
