Interior designer. Decorator


Specialist office designers are responsible for conceiving and developing workspaces for corporate/professional use. They require thorough knowledge of the company, of its corporate, organisational and departmental culture and of the relationships between individuals. Similarly, analysing the technological development of the company, the environment in which it operates, the tasks performed by the groups of workers, and the degree of physical and psychological comfort, are other issues to take into account.


  • Analyse the project.
    These professionals should possess their knowledge of the company: its corporate, organisational and department culture, the relationship between individuals, its technological development and the environment it which it operates.
  • Study the targets laid out for the project and attempt to fully render them.
    Analyse the company's corporate cultural, its functional and departmental structure, the architectural and environmental space available, the particular comfort needs depending on the role in question, in terms of ergonomy, lighting, acoustic and thermal considerations, accessibility to documents and different technical equipment. Other major issues to be taken into account include: the company's image, how often different groups (the general public, clients, the press, suppliers, etc.) visit the office, and the space and image desired for each of these areas.
  • Design a proposal.
    The design team proposes a creative idea for the space to be created and presents it in different ways, to help explain it. The draft design should be very clear on the layout of the workspaces, the structure and materials to be used, the atmosphere that will be created and should maybe even give an indication as to the furniture and lighting that will be utilised. If signage is part of the project, a proposal for this should also be included. This can be achieved using 3D rendering, 3D animation, virtual tours, technical panels for general dimensions, material samples and even models, so that the project can be clearly understood.
  • Design the project.
    Once the draft has been approved, complete the project through the exhaustive definition of all of the elements and details, so that it can be executed.
  • Coordinate and manage the preproduction and production of the project.
    Depending on the business structure in which they work, they may be responsible for coordinating other collaborators, whether from their own team or external ones, who deal with other aspects of the space such as communication and graphic design, where applicable. Manage other (industry) professionals involved, controlling the quality, the budgets and the final execution and construction.
