Interior Design Key to Success

Interior Design Key to Success

There is little doubt that the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) will continue to spur the growth that has caught the eyes of investors across the globe on Cambodia.

For new businesses, franchise opportunities or head offices, architecture and interior design can play a large role in success. First impressions make a big impact, and impact is what investors are looking for.

A quality interior can make or break a business. Architecture and interior design is not about labels. It’s about crafting an environment that reflects what a company stands for and what they aim to do. It creates an environment that immediately speaks to others about the business’ goals and, most importantly, an environment that invites people in.

Here in Cambodia, investors in the construction and design sector are primarily from China, Japan, Malaysia, Korea and Singapore.The last two years have seen investors move in ahead of AEC integration to augment availability in Grade A and B office space, to catch potential demand from future incoming investors and develop Grade A and B office space for their own companies.

By 2018, Phnom Penh will see a 64 percent increase in office stock, the majority of which will be located within the districts of Daun Penh and 7 Makara. Many of these are purpose-built offices for the construction sector, and banking, legal, real estate and finance-related industries.

For businesses making the move into new office space, expanding or looking to accurately reflect their company’s standards and expectation, architecture and interior design spatial planning services really come into play.

With the planning of a new office, designers and their clients are faced with many challenges.They must focus on practical issues such as spatial needs, proximity relations, IT infrastructure and furniture, but also more strategic issues such as occupancy costs, effectiveness of the working environment, and environmental impact.

When considering your future office requirements - as with any commercial business decision – it’s critical to establish a clear strategy and defined objectives. Taking into consideration your own business plans and aligning them with your office accommodation needs is best practice. Beyond Design, founded by Australian designer Bronwyn Blue in 2008 can provide clear information and knowledge to help ensure your property strategy is successful.

Being at the forefront of the changes in the architectural and design industry in Cambodia has been a dynamic journey for the team at Beyond Design.

When Blue first arrived Cambodia, Street 306, home to the Beyond Design furniture showroom was not even a paved road. Now BKK1 is home to many international and thriving local businesses, many of which Beyond Design had a hand in developing.

In 2016, the Beyond Design team is as international as its client base. A team of French, Italian, Philippian, Australian and Cambodian staff has allowed Beyond Design to interpret and meet the diverse requirements of local and international investors vying to be part of Cambodia’s bright future.
