We’re proud to have created yet another National Gold Award Winner for Best Design Center. Clean white backgrounds allow the products to take center stage and provides a calm, clean,f resh arena for buyers to successfully create their dream homes. When this builder re-oriented their brand to focus on personalization, we knew their new design studio had to be tangible proof that they really meant it. Although less than half the size of their previous studio, option sales have significantly increased.Read More
This 2014 National Silver Winner for Best Design Center has pushed past the boundaries of previous option sales to break new per-home revenue records while creating ecstatic customer experiences. The 6,000 sf space boasts unique features such as a custom faucet display surrounding a water fountain, and a Building Happiness Bistro for prospective customers to enjoy the studio atmosphere. A clever space plan allows the custom home division to have it’s own mini-studio which works seamlessly with the larger main studio. Nobody understands design studio space planning like we do!Read More
We are essentially a Design Studio STRATEGY company at heart. This means we study the operational aspects of a design studio, how consumers make decisions, and much much more and use that information to employ the proper space planning, site lines, and display methodologies for every studio we create. We know what to do for different size builders, different size studios, different quantities of products, and different customer experiences. We’ll make sure your design studio investment pays off and save you from mistakes others make. Here’s one of our four “The Nationals” 2013 Best Design Center winners, this one in Canada.Read More
The 2013 Gold Award Winner for Best Design Center in the Country provided this public builder with the opportunity to establish another consistent touchpoint for their new brand image, and resulted in an instant and dramatic increase in revenue. We took the 8,000 square foot space the builder previously used, and created a state-of-the-art environment for their flagship studio near their Philadelphia corporate office (and only used 6,000 square feet). We continue to work with them to create studios in other markets to embody this new spirit and energy.Read More
Yes, we really did win four of the five awards for The Nationals Best 2013 Design Center in the Country, including this one here in Charlotte, NC! While we, and our clients, enjoy winning national recognition for excellence, what’s more important is that homebuyers reap the benefits of a creative atmosphere which helps to streamline decision-making, create interactive and educational experiences, and get a personalized home that’s just right for them!Read More
This top-level remodeler opened this under-1500 sf design studio in their new corporate office in Denver and immediately increased their closing ratio for new clients, shortened their project development time by 7 days, improved customer perception about their quality, and more than doubled their backlog. This studio also won a Silver Award for Best Design Center in the Country at The Nationals in 2013.Read More
We helped this builder create an irresistible design studio, fully visible from the heavy pedestrian access outside in this live/work/play development in Richmond, VA. Potential homebuyers come into the “Information and Design Center” and realize how fun, convenient, exciting and easy it will be to personalize their home in this national award-winning customer-focused environment. The builder routinely converts prospective buyers into bona fide buyers in this space which is delivering results in every way. The builder also leverages it’s award as the 2012 Gold Award Winner for The Nationals Best Design Center in the Country….right on the front door and the windows looking in!Read More
This studio won the Silver Award for Best Design Studio at the Nationals. The cabinet and counter selection gallery views many of the kitchen vignettes, to inspire, educate and streamline decision-making. Strategic space planning is our specialty! While many attempt to imitate our studios, they don’t understand the strategy BEHIND why we do what we do, so they end up with mistakes, missed opportunities, and they break the rules of what NOT to do in Design Studios! Doesn’t your Design Studio deserve an expert?Read More
Here’s just two of the kitchen vignettes at this national award-winning studio, used for culinary events and interactive learning. This 7,000 sf design studio was responsible for a 20% increase in option sales in it’s first year of operation in 2010!! And what’s more, the studio we created REPLACED the Builder’s existing studio of about the SAME size!! And they STILL saw a 20% increase in 2010! Imagine what a properly planned and executed studio could do for you!! PS: Check out the impact site line to the messaging at the entry of the flooring gallery.Read More
While only 1400 square feet, this Salt Lake City studio is professional and well-organized. Notice how a high quantity of flooring products are arranged in a small space, yet the eye goes only to the products (no distracting displays or fixturing, empty walls etc.)..easy focus on the products helps to chunk decisions, inspiring confidence and saving time! Good things DO come in small packages!Read More
There’s nothing “cookie-cutter” about what we do. This is one of many versions of multi-functional workstations we create, depending on the Builder’s unique needs. We’ll take best practices developed over the years, and adjust them for each builder’s unique needs and available space. What’s best for one builder is not necessarily best for another. We understand how Design Studios FUNCTION, and how the personalization experience (ie “selections process”) SHOULD work best. Combine that with our proven step-by-step process for learning about YOUR company,what works and what doesn’t…and we can give you a winning recipe for SUCCESS!Read More
This awesome design studio creates a HIGHLY UNIQUE selections experience for these soon-to-be-residents of a Continuing Care Retirement Facility in Pennsylvania. This 2000 sf studio is part of a larger Welcome Facility that was revamped to include this design studio, thereby front-loading the concept of personalization into the sales process. The facility met the goals: to steal market share from a nearby active adult community, to leverage the concept of personalization, to create the feeling of high levels of possible personalization and to increase per-home revenue. The average buyer age here is about 70+!!Read More
They say “Everything’s bigger in Texas” and that was true here! We designed the two-story portion of this building to include a full exterior facade as both an end-point to a site line, and as part of the exterior selections gallery. There is a fun interactive front door display embedded into this realistic facade. This builder was named national 2011 Builder of the Year by Hanley Wood’s Builder Magazine.Read More
The inviting entry view of a superb design studio in Grand Rapids, MI. From the welcome lounge and functional high-end kitchen in the front to the surprises embedded into the exterior selections areas in the rear, this studio encourages potential and current homebuyers to roam around, explore, and want to be a part of it! The signature blue walls provide a creative and eye-catching contrast to the industrial blacked-out ceiling, putting buyers in a mood to appreciate color and style, and to want to be creative in their own homes. Oh yeah, this studio also won a national award for Best Design Center.Read More
Simple displays, if executed correctly and paired with compelling and value-building scripts for Design Consultants can produce amazing results. The builder created this display, and then significantly increased the price of the blown-in insulation, yet saw an eight-fold increase in sales of this product in the first year this design studio was open. We create more than just “pretty” design studios. Our strategy-based approach produces results!Read More
