When the connection is made between a client, their Vision and a professional Interior design source, the project begins to take shape. Ideas are translated into substantive choices, decisions are made and the ultimate “design” begins to take real form! “Impressions” become actions; likes and dislikes are defined and clarified. That Vision becomes a bona fide Interior design concept.
The Interior design concept acquires its “integrity” when it evolves into balance with what the client envisioned and what is pragmatically possible! Sometimes that “balance” requires a very special kind of magician – the Interior designer – in order to take all critical factors into consideration while preserving the intent of the Client’s Vision! What factors? Aesthetics, functionality, preferences, costs – to identify only the short list! Those and others begin to constitute the Interior design’s integrity.
In mind and in consideration – at all times – must be the appropriate satisfaction of the “end use.” One of my favorite easy examples of tending conscientiously to the “end user,” is Interior design for pediatric dentistry! (One has only to revisit their own childhood experiences “going to the dentist,” to understand the importance of creating contemporary dental environments for kids that are fun, fearless and friendly!)
Whether the Interior environment that a prospective client has in mind is for a business, for professional offices, a medical or dental facility, a public space or a residence, that important trilogy -- Vision to Design to End Use – is the conceptual “glue” that keeps your Interior design project on track! It is actually difficult to get off-track when each aspect keeps the other two in mind.
Managing the complexity of even a relatively small Interior design project requires frequent cross-checks to the guiding disciplines that hold Vision, Design and End Use functionally – and creatively cohesive. Your Interior design expert, and the Interior design extended team, holds their own feet to the fires of coordination and desired conclusion! They know that when you get to the completion of your Interior design project, you expect it to serve the desired End Users!
