Design Approach

A. I. Design Lab provides innovative and contextually appropriate, luxury and environmentally-responsible architectural and interior design for hospitality (hotels and restaurants), residential, commercial, corporate, and not-for-profit projects. Thorough research is the departure point for every project on which we work.  Our concepts involve investigating ideas about the occupant, community, natural and urban landscapes, construction and environmental impact, as well as space, light, materials, energy, objects, and imagery to redefine an occupant’s response to a place and brand. Our goal is to exceed our client’s expectations while evoking a positive intellectual and emotional response to the design.

From building design to branding, A. I. Design Lab regularly utilizes project management and creative suite software, 2D and 3D drawings and renderings, hand sketching, and scale model building techniques to convey design ideas to our clients.
