INSIGHTS BRANDING YOUR BUSINESS
WITH INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE

Interior architecture and design can support,
promote and convey a business’ brand.

HERE’S A QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION WITH AN ARCHITECT/
INTERIOR DESIGNER:

Q: What is branding, or environment branding, when referring to
interior architecture and design?
Lynn Baker: When we’re talking about interiors, the term “branding”
means creating an environment that embodies the attributes of a
business, so customers recognize and experience your business’
brand when they enter your place of business.

Q: How do color, texture, art, lighting and furniture play a role in in particular, can create an atmosphere that relates to your brand or
interior branding for your clients’ spaces? the experience you wish customers to have while in your space and

clients’ customers, potential customers, stakeholders, employees
and community. An example of environment branding includes Do you want customers to feel energized when they enter your
repeating colors from your logo in your space. Additionally, we space or feel restful and cocooned? In the first instance you might
use color to communicate a feeling or quality associated with use more daylight and bright, indirect lighting; in the latter you
your brand. If a brand prides itself on being “fun,” for example, a might have low levels of warm-colored light.The way customers or
designer might select bright or energetic colors. employees use the space can also communicate a brand. Moveable

We use texture, art, lighting and furniture in the same way. Lighting, workspaces, couches and an open environment can suggest
a collaborative, creative business, in contrast to a space
that’s less flexible and closed-off, which could suggest the
importance of privacy, confidentiality, trust and security.

Q: What is a corporate branded environment example
people might recognize?
LB: Google is a company that famously communicates its
“fun and playful” brand identity into its interior by using
the brand’s multiple colors and showcasing unique design
features, such as an indoor slide or mini-golf course.

Q: Is environment branding done before, after or in
collaboration with the marketing professionals responsible
for a company’s overall corporate branding strategy?
LB: Interior branding can be done in any of these ways. If
a company has not yet hired a marketing professional, it’s
helpful if the client has an idea of what makes their product
or service unique. We can then work with the client to
identify these qualities and create an interior environment
to reinforce them. A marketing professional can then build
upon this base.

communicating. When necessary, at my firm we
work with a contracted graphic designer to help
clients select logos and corporate colors. This
additional service for our client helps expedite
signage procurement and also influences the
exterior architecture of our projects, as well well
as the interiors.

Q: Step-by-step, what is the process of branding
an interior environment?
LB: First, we want to hear the client’s initial
ideas for a project—this might give us ideas
about their philosophy and what’s important to
them, both functionally and aesthetically. At this
point, I also look at a client’s website and any
existing printed collateral, such as brochures
or flyers, to determine if they have branding in
place that will be essential to incorporate in the
interior design.

Next, we create an inspiration board that
illustrates the brand attributes through interior
design—it might contain descriptive words,
photos of other interiors, colors, art, and design
features. The client then gives me feedback on
what they do or don’t like about the board.

From there, our team begins drawing the design
features, and selects colors, lighting, artwork
and furniture that are similar to the items
displayed on the inspiration board. We meet
with the client during each of these steps to get
their input and make changes, if necessary.

Q: What positive impact can interior design
branding have on your clients’ businesses?
LB: I think it can reinforce the qualities of their
products and service for the customer. Not
branding an interior space can cause confusion
or doubt for a customer, and even for the
employees, especially if your website or work
is known for a certain quality, and then your
interior environment contradicts it.

When a customer visits a properly branded
space, they will make a positive judgment about
the business, possibly prior to knowing anything
about your work or product.

10 TRENDS IN KITCHEN DESIGN

ecades ago, the kitchen was hidden in the back of the house. It was a place where meals were prepared and dirty dishes were washed.
Fast forward to 2017 and the kitchen has a much different role. Today, the kitchen is the focal point of the home, the place that brings
everyone together after a long day or at the start of one. Now instead, the kitchen is paraded in all its beauty and warmth at the very
center of the house. Kitchens have changed a lot over the decades and planning for your kitchen remodel is very important. Technology advances
and changing social dynamics have contributed greatly to the rise of the modern kitchen. There is a far bigger focus on open concept homes that
revolve around the kitchen so everyone can be together. As with any modern design trend, clean and simple styles have become favorites for
homeowners with natural light becoming an essential aspect of the overall look and function of the kitchen space.

With the keen eye from design experts, here are the top 10 trends in kitchen design that are currently in.

You can have sensor-equipped kitchen faucets that can sense the
presence of hands underneath and will come on automatically. You
could have a fridge that alerts you when your groceries items are
running low or a coffee maker that has your coffee ready when you
wake up. There is also a device that monitors your eggs, telling you
which ones are almost going bad. Do not forget to smarten up your
lighting system–allowing you to control different lights from your
smartphone or tablet.

Technology integrated kitchens are becoming more popular as
homeowners experiment with novel technologies. This is one of the
biggest trends going into 2018 too.

Changes are also happening to the range hood. Traditionally, we see
large chimney style range hoods over the range. Though it plays a
major role in sucking up fumes, grease and odors, it does not earn
many points for style. To change this, homeowners are opting for
new ceiling mounted range hoods. They take up less space and are
more sleek-looking. Don’t forget to consider advanced range hoods
that can be flush mounted for a discreet and very chic look.

The larger kitchen islands have become jack of all
trades. They have storage cabinets and can be fitted
with various cooking appliances while also serving
as a dining and/or drinking bar. To accommodate the
increased size, the kitchen island can be extended into
living room territory in homes with open plan designs.

This ensures the kitchen island can be multi-functional
without cluttering up space in the kitchen.

MAIN FEATURE Grapnote Steel were the reinforcement steel
supplier for the Alliance Project.

Grapnote Steel is a medium sized, wholly

Zimbabwean owned company which started operations
in 2005 as Grapnote Investments.
Their core business is the supply, cutting and bending
as well as assembling and fixing of both structural and
reinforcement steel within the Southern African region.
They also supply steel related products and most hardware
products so as to make their workshop a one stop shop for
steel users. Among the sectors of the economy they supply
are the construction, mining and farming industries.
Grapnote Steel’s business is supported by an
integrated quality management system that underpins
every aspect of its operations.
By strategically positioning quality management at
the heart of its operations, Grapnote Steel has bound
together the full value chain of an infrastructure
company, thus embedding the concept of a triple
bottom line management culture, which is central
to reinforcing sustainability and delivering a quality
outcome to all their stakeholders.

When Alliance Insurance found they
were outgrowing their offices at
Westgate they began looking for new
premises for the company. The site
of their current headquarters came
on the market and it seemed like a
perfect opportunity for them to design
and build new offices tailor made to
suit their needs. The property at 66
Ridgeway North was in an excellent
location, near to other financial centres
like CABS and Old Mutual, as well as
being easily accessible from both the
city centre and Borrowdale. However
there was an old block of flats on
the site which had become a bit run
down and had been converted to
accommodation for backpackers for
short term hire. Not the ideal place for
an insurance company. However, luckily
they had the vision and foresight to see
the potential which the site offered.
Nathalie Hunt drew up a sketch of what
they wanted and Architrave Design
Group drew up the plans.

MAIN FEATURE They managed to incorporate part of the old building, although all the interiors were completely gutted. So although the new
build seems very modern it still preserves a small part of Harare’s history, even if it has been seamlessly incorporated into the
new edifice. According to Murray Martin from Elevate Construction the decision to preserve sections of the existing structure was
partly to help keep costs down and also because the existing building and its foundations were for the most part still structurally
sound – although some minor re-enforcement was needed - columns and pillars which were fairly simple to construct. The large
open plan interior spaces were created using concrete beams cast on site which didn’t seem to provoke any particularly difficult
problems for Elevate Construction.

The double volume height is striking and impressive and re-enforces
the indoor/outdoor ambiance which is one of the guiding themes of
the entire design.

32 structure & design

The circular central structure also presented some technical chal-
lenges in terms of creating curved formwork and shuttering to cast
all the concrete beams and slab edges on site, which was done us-
ing timber and flexiform shuttering. The interior granite cladding on
the circular walls was also a challenge to ensure that there was no
chance of it working loose, so Elevate Construction used a special-
ised technique which they had first developed on the award winning
Gota project (WAN Awards House of the Year 2012).

MAIN FEATURE

The gardens were such an important part of the overall design aesthetic that Nathalie, in
conjunction with Sean Price from Nature’s Way, began to establish the gardens before the
build was even complete. Nathalie’s brief was to design and construct a garden which was
low maintenance – no grass to mow – waterwise, and providing interest through different
leaf colours and textures. A water feature of three large clay pots gently bubbling over
provides soothing and tranquil sounds and completes the landscaping. From the gardens
it’s hard to believe that the building is on a busy major road with fairly heavy traffic.

L ELECTRON

MAIN FEATURE But if the structure is impressive it’s the interior design and
decor that really makes the project so successful. Nathalie’s
motto is to be understated, elegant and practical. The
reception area sets the tone for the rest of the building with a
custom made desk, specially made by Lammel Manufacturing,
a division of Romeo Kitchens, to Nathalie’s design. Behind
the desk is a laser cut map of Africa in chrome with an inset
showing Zimbabwe’s place on the continent. Two large ornate
twisted chandeliers hang overhead while comfortable seating
welcomes visitors. The staircase is clad in mosaic stone
cladding adding texture and warmth.
Over the stairway shimmering spherical lights hang down over
chrome and glass balustrades. Subtly shaded wallpaper and
different paint colours are carefully considered to highlight the
architectural features.

MAIN FEATURE The inside/outside aesthetic runs through the whole design with nearly all the spaces having
a view onto the atrium or outside to the gardens, or both. One exception is the ground floor
offices on the north side which face onto a solid wall. Here Nathalie Hunt has commissioned
Arnold Venter from The Banner Man to provide translucent blinds designed to look like a
bamboo grove – with the sun shining through and back lighting the patterns. A clever and
practical solution that’s also cost effective.

a series of CCTV cameras around the clock. There are
however no cameras inside the vaults so depositors can
be assured of strict privacy. Only two people are allowed
into the vault area at any time. Unlike the outside units
vaults can only be accessed during normal office hours.
These vaults are ideal for storing or archiving sensitive
documents or other highly valuable possessions. Some
of the vaults are used to house off site servers for
sensitive computer information, and these are air
conditioned to maintain a constant temperature. The
vaults can be supplied with high speed fibre internet.
The temperature controlled units are also ideal for
storing valuable art works.
