Our emphasis is on architectural and interior design, which is appropriate to our client’s marketing and merchandising strategies and goals. We have the capabilities to design a prototype "look" especially for our client or take an established prototype design and fit it into a new location.

Nine WestWe also have "in house" Architectural and Interior Design capabilities to plan and produce projects as well as select their finishes and furnishings. We know how critical it is to produce the design and working drawings in time to meet deadlines. Our staff is well versed in retail design and the production process, and will use the latest version of AutoCAD for your construction documents.
We work closely with our clients, each city, leasing agent and/or the landlord so the design satisfies everyone's design criteria. Over the past 25 years we have worked in cities throughout the United States and Canada and on properties owned or managed by Cadillac Fairview, General Growth, Westfield, Forest City, DeBartolo, U.I.D.C., Taubman, Homart, Mel Simon, Rouse, Trammell Crow, EMC, CPI, JMB, as well as many others.

Our experience as architects and interior designers provides clients with insights and design ability normally obtained from two or three separate firms.  As Registered Architects we can provide services for site planning, adding on to an existing building or designing a new shell structure to house a new project as well as design the interior.
