Our practice is equally balanced between building design, interior architecture and experiential design. We are equally comfortable designing new structures, building additions and extending the lives of older buildings with new functions. At Granum, we strive to seamlessly integrate architecture and interior design.
We generate building forms that simultaneously address external forces with internal program requirements. We believe that only those projects that address all requirements, including budget and schedule, can be considered successful.
Our work reflects a fundamental belief in the value of understanding our clients' unique situation, their aesthetic goals and pragmatic needs before proposing design solutions. Our clients value our experience in strategic planning, programming and the creation of cutting edge workplace strategies. Our teams support this early planning with full philosophy design and documentation capabilities, FF&E specification, LEED certification, signage and environmental graphics, construction administration and post-occupancy evaluation.
Based on the belief that the best solutions come from passionate collaboration our team values a free exchange of ideas within a structured framework to develop innovative solutions.
The name of our firm reflects our commitment to transformational thinking.
Granum (noun): the site of the light reactions of photosynthesis in a leaf.
The process of photosynthesis exemplifies the core principles of the Granum A/I team. In our architecture and interior design practice we work with clients to understand their unique requirements and ambitions. Our team responds with solutions that translate those thoughts and aspirations into environments that support business goals now and in the future. We are focused on design excellence; client service; and sustainable relationships with our clients, colleagues, and consultants.
Our practice is equally balanced between building design, interior architecture, and brand design. It is our belief that clients and designers alike benefit from the close collaboration that is possible only when architects, interior designers and graphic designers work together in a seamless collaboration. This mode of practice is a fundamental principle of our team.
At Granum A/I, we believe that it is our professional obligation to incorporate sustainable design principles in all of our work, even in those cases when our clients are not interested in pursuing LEED certification. We approach sustainable design as an integral component of our design process.
