WHO WE ARE “

BKV Group Interiors design solutions focus on telling an authentic story, and we work to truly understand the user, site, neighborhood, and community to infuse those elements into the built environment.

BKV GROUP INTERIOR DESIGN practices within numerous sectors and project types. Our team consistently develops communities that are creative, memorable and progressive in design. Our work is informed by intensive research and knowledge of innovative design solutions. Some clients come to us with a strong brand already developed; others look to the design team to help shape the narrative for their brand. BKV Group’s design solutions focus on telling an authentic story. We work to truly understand the resident, site, neighborhood, and community to infuse those elements into the built environment.

In the end, our designs create a sense of place, providing users with convenience and support for social, emotional, and physical wellbeing. As your Interior Design partner, we are committed to delivering creative and inspiring spaces, no matter the budget. Interior Design is one aspect of a project that is very personal to the resident — it’s where they live, work, play, and interact daily. The development of interior spaces through the use of materials, lighting and furnishings allows us to create a brand story that defines a memorable experience and connection to a residential community.

OUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

BKV Group enhances the physical and cultural environment through multidisciplinary, meaningful, and responsive design. Supported by innovative technology and a strategic market focus, we work to transforming communities, nationally and internationally.

It is a contextually-sensitive approach is based on, and reactive to, our clients’ goals, budget, vision, and focus, with our creative process engaging all team members to transform and positively shape communities around the globe.

OUR PROCESS

BKV Group provides total building design: from the aesthetics of branding, to the science of building technology, to the challenge of creative cost control.

DESIGN PHASES

INTERIOR DESIGN PROCESS

PRE-DESIGN

PROJECT DISCOVERY

We immerse our team in our client’s communities to gain a deep understanding of their culture, values, objectives, challenges, comps, audience, opportunities, and differentiators. This data will guide the social, wellness, and service programming for the project and will steer the creative direction.

SCHEMATIC DESIGN

CONCEPTUAL DEVELOPMENT

Our holistic planning approach considers the needs of all users as we assess the functional, sustainable, and aesthetic requirements for the project. Working to improve efficiences, fuction and adjacencies, we maximize multipurpose spaces and indoor-outdoor connectivity. Preliminary floorplans, finish and fixture schedules are completed during SD.

Developing the “big idea” an concept for any project is key to the start of design direction. The vision captures high-level project goals that define priorities and user experience of the space.

12 | BKV GROUP

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS

REFINING THE DESIGN

Refinement of the concept and documentation occur during DD. Visualization presentations may include wireframe studies to study spatial relationships, rendering studies for material exploration, and virtual reality walk-throughs. We work through finish and fixture specifications as we further establish plans, elevations and details.

TECHNICAL DESIGN

Final working drawings are produced after design sign-off. These CDs include Finish and Furniture plans, Reflected ceiling plans, Elevations, and Details. Finish and fixture schedules are completed and coordinated with the project team. Project bidding, permitting, cost verification, and VE may occur prior to construction.

CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION EXECUTION

While the project is on site we will work closely with the contractors and FF&E supply chain to achieve the successful implementation of our design along with the installation and commissioning of all the associated FF&E.

EFFICIENCY IN PLANNING

Our holistic planning approach considers the needs of all users as we assess the functional, sustainable, and aesthetic requirements for the project. Working to improve efficiencies, function, and adjacencies, we maximize shared spaces as we study multipurpose capabilities and indoor-outdoor connectivity.

14 | BKV GROUP

LIFESTYLE AMENITIES

We create amenities that build community and support social, emotional and physical wellbeing. Programming is based on building efficiency, market drivers, and amenities that will set the project apart from relevant competitors.

We know the importance of flexible spaces that are accessible to all residents and always push to reinforce interior to exterior connectivity.

16 | BKV GROUP

VISUALIZATION

We use visual storytelling and mood boards to express the energy of the project. Wireframe visualization studies help to understand spatial relationships, and we use rendered concept studies for material exploration.

Virtual Reality walk-throughs allow clients to experience the space in 3D. From initial mock ups to the finalized design, VR allows for project collaboration across all team members.

18 | BKV GROUP

FURNITURE, ARTWORK AND ACCESSORIES

During final installation, our team works with all project entities to curate thoughtful furniture, art, and accessories. Intentional selections are made to help reinforce the design story.

Natural or faux plants bring the outdoors in while we layer furniture, art, and accessories for a residential feel.

While the project is on site, we work closely with the contractors and FF&E dealers to achieve the successful implementation of our design along with the installation of all the associated FF&E.

20 | BKV GROUP

UNIT MODEL DESIGN

The design of the residential units should evoke dreams of home and set our clients apart from their competition. Model units are a continuation of the design story developed in amenity spaces. Furniture, colors, material selection and aesthetic trends are factors in a successful model to attract the target market.

We use creative merchandising of residential units to communicate the brand. Furnishings, artwork and accessories reflect the locale.

Procurement of readily available products that are accessible to residents are important in defining comfort, quality and lifestyle.

BRANDED ENVIRONMENTS

We are all designers storytellers. Let us help you tell your next story

.

At BKV Group, we have a design legacy of enriching lives and strengthening communities. We are a group of architects, engineers, and designers creating environments for people to gather, work, play, and live.

In our process, brand is a critical component which helps create the perfect project for our clients, and capture their stories for years after our work is done.

Our clients share their stories, their history, their goals, their fears, their wishes. And we listen. We study the site, the city, the comps. We gather all the information we possibly can. And then … we get creative.

VISION

Architecture is beautiful for the harmony it creates between itself, it’s environment, and its inhabitants. Sustainable design is the natural progression of that vision with BKV designed buildings always responding to their context — their location, their function, and how they are used by their occupants. BKV Group has a holistic vision for the building’s life-cycle to appropriately respond to context, function, and use. We leverage sustainable design strategies by tapping into a wide spectrum of knowledge — of architecture, interior design, urban planning, energy modeling, engineering, landscape architecture, technology and science — with our clients receiving the benefit of decades of collective professional expertise. In addition, because there is no predetermined outcome or prototypical concept, our process yields work of extraordinary originality, crafted to the specific needs of the site, user and circumstances.
