Interior Design

Our extensive experience in a number of market areas and holistic approach to projects, allows us to extend our scope of design services beyond architecture. These services include wayfinding, graphics, branding, rendering, and interior design. For us, interior design is a seamless extension of architecture, with both processes intertwined and interdependent. Interior design solutions are co-developed with the architecture to reinforce a coherent overall design intent. Although SMP partners on larger endeavors with interior designers, we self-perform interior design on most of our small to mid-size projects, including healthcare, governmental, and residential projects. Our capabilities and experience include the ability to work with an owner to select furniture, fixtures, and equipment (F,F,&E) as well as interior materials, colors, and complementary elements such as artwork. As deliverables to communicate the interior design, we typically produce a material boards that allows the owner to see and touch the proposed materials. We incorporate exterior materials to reinforce the design coherency. Three dimensional digital renderings with fully lit environments provide a virtual reference for the material choices, and we have the ability to ͞walk through͟ the virtual digital model together with our clients. SMP design has particular expertise in the fusion of lighting design and the incorporation of natural daylighting. Our experience has been gained by leading the interior and exterior lighting design and daylighting analysis design on significant projects in the Cincinnati market. In addition to selecting fixtures, we utilize cutting edge software to simulate light output and color temperature of fixtures as well as the effects of natural light on an interior space.
