Retail design is first and foremost a specialised practice of architecture and interior design; yet it also incorporates elements of interior decoration, industrial design, graphic design, ergonomics, and advertising.
As a Tenant of a shop in a shopping centre or retail outlet, you will be required to submit tenant installation drawings, detailing the exterior and interior design and layout of your shop as well as the functional and technical aspects of the construction thereof.
Most retail establishments encourage Tenants to be creative in designing a unique shop interior. You are often required, in terms of the lease agreement, to engage the service of a professional Designer to assist you.
Effects Interior Design has several years of experience in the retail industry, assisting Tenants in interpreting the criteria of the Tenant Criteria Document (TCD) into functional, beautifully designed shop interiors. We have supported many Tenants in preparing Tenant Installation drawings, preparing drawings for submission to Local Authorities to obtain approval and managing the execution of the interior fit-out.
