• Retail Design

    Found have a wealth of experience over 20 years of retail design.  From pop ups and concessions to global roll outs and entire department stores we enjoy working at all scales.  Each project is approached with research and innovation in mind, ensuring unique and beautiful environments are created which represent the brand and inspire the customer.  Our in depth understanding of what makes a luxurious residence enables us to take the retail environment to another level of refinement and sophistication. We have worked internationally with a number of brands successfully teaming up with local professionals to ensure a smooth process from concept to completion.

    We work with retailers of all sizes, from pop up stores to retail master planning for international brands.

    Our initial brand familiarisation and brief development stage enables a comprehensive feasibility study to be undertaken.  We can provide building appraisals for existing and proposed sites, together with an overall estate strategy in collaboration with the project team.

    The design process typically begins with design direction which sets the project tone and layout, followed by Concept Design which would include 3D Visualisation, illustrative drawings, and materiality.

    Whether the project is a Heritage building requiring refurbishment, or a fit-out within a mall setting with strict landlord guidelines we have the experience to ensure the process is seamless.  We will obtain building control approval, and where necessary planning and listing building approval together with Conservation area consent and advertising consent.

    When working in department stores we can provide brand guidelines for shop in shop concessions, and develop fixture designs, profile drawings, and undertake detail design for the fit out.  Depending on the project scope and location we would prepare tender and construction drawings and provide onsite attendance. Equally for overseas clients we can work with or provide the services of an executive architect.

    Once the project is completed we carry out a post occupancy evaluation looking at sales figures and targets and talking to the sales team to ensure any potential enhancements are implemented and carried forward with future store development and the brand handbook.
