A successful institutional or commercial design is one that conveys mission or brand identity while enhancing operation. We seek to understand and synthesize our clients’ goals and the specific needs and processes of their organization with a truly open mind so that we can create innovative spaces which convey their aspirations as well as being highly functional and organized.

Commercial interiors has been a big growth sector for Stanev Potts in the last 5 years. Ranging in size from 1,000 to 30,000 + SF spaces, tackling diverse project types from bakeries and café/restaurants, to maker spaces and innovation labs, office spaces, to boutique treatment clinics, to full scale commercial commissary food production and non-profit office headquarters. As with all our work, we start by listening carefully to the needs of the client, understanding the goals, their brand, the concerns and constraints leading them to expand or relocate, and the people who make the culture of their business or institution thrive, be it academic, clinical, hospitality, or retail. Understanding and synthesizing these variables free from pre-conceived notions of default configurations and solutions is something we believe sets us apart. Precedent is worth studying, and there are important lessons to be learned by what has worked for a certain industry or project type in the past, but given the constantly evolving nature of human interaction on virtually all fronts, there can be tremendous value in thinking out of the box.
