GI Design & Architecture is an interior design and architecture firm that specialises in designing buildings and spaces that facilitate businesses to thrive. Our approach is to offer design solutions that ensure functionality and quality whilst promoting your company’s sales, image and site specific technical challenges. The property could be business premises that no longer cater to your business needs, a hotel in a need of refurbishment, a premier property that requires a complete overhaul, or a business property converted into a different use. Construction as a line of business involves providing services or housing for people. We can with our design and architecture services support your company’s aims and aspirations to challenging the brief and creating experiences. We are an established company offering services from interior design, architecture, lighting and graphic design, and specialised brand and work space strategists.

We design buildings, spaces and services that combine commercial and functional elements with energy efficiency and ecological materials. We believe profitable business and an aesthetic environment can easily coexist with sustainable development. Good design and architecture are a natural part of a successful company. There values serve as a guideline in our work and as a source of inspiration for us. With strategic workplace design projects, GI Design has been actively involved in developing transparency of client corporate culture, as well as enhancing internal personnel communication and productivity. We have completed nearly a combined one million square meters of workplace design projects, and these facilities employ over 30,000 people.
