DesigningWell provides commercial design services from selection of lease space or land to finish installation.
Your commercial space is a large contributor to your business profitability. A well designed space increases efficiency, morale and opportunity. A poorly designed space stifles growth, most often without a bottom line cost benefit at the end of the project.
Appropriate décor reflects the mission of your company and the quality of services you provide.
Selecting the right design and construction team means that you can focus on your business and business development with confidence, knowing that your new space is being expertly designed and built to meet your needs well into the future.
With 15 years of experience in commercial design Ms. Coleman blends high design with functionality and attention to project costs. These three aspects of project success are often in tension and create stress for the business owner, designer and construction team.
A successful commercial building project is the culmination of months of hard work and coordination between business owner, designer, contractor, property developer or leasing agent and planning and building departments. Our experience navigating the design, permit and construction processes is invaluable. DesigningWell can help you ask the right questions about your project including zoning, parking, accessibility, signage, equipment, timelines and budgets. We bring a team ethic, helping to inspire your design and construction team to work as a unit for the good of the project.
DesigningWell has been designing and managing the construction of residential projects in the Bay Area for 15 years. A well designed home meets the multitudes of needs your family places on it with ease and flexibility.
Most families come to a designer when their home is not meeting the needs of the family: there are not enough bedrooms, the kitchen just doesn’t work, the living space seems choppy or disjointed, there is no room to sew, set up a home office, keep the children’s play area or host Thanksgiving dinner.
The most fulfilling moments for Shira are the descriptions from clients of space unused, underutilized or used with great effort that are transformed into ‘favorite spaces’, spaces in which everything seems to have its place, everything is accessible and effortless.
Each family has a unique set of uses for their home. DesigningWell believes that residential design should be a reaction to the function of the home. If you do not cook at home, the gourmet kitchen which will ‘increase the value of your home’ is not actually an effective use of space or funds.
The true value of your home is its ‘fit’ with your lifestyle. A well designed home can be easily transformed when a new owner comes along. DesigningWell’s editing eye can show you how design simplicity can allow you to increase your home’s value while meeting the needs of your family’s daily life.
A successful residential building project is the result of coordination between owner, designer, and contractor. DesigningWell’s experience navigating the design, permit and construction processes is invaluable.
We look forward to serving you in your transformation.
