Collaboration and Consultation: Shifting the Pendulum of Engagement

How we move through interior spaces has altered significantly. Collaboration and consultation have created new challenges and opportunities to work differently with our clients. Interior designers have a chance to have a larger voice at the front end of the project as the pandemic has forced clients to re-evaluate their spaces. How can we help our clients understand how spaces can be transformed, used, and modified as owners, managers, and builders are forced to rethink space?
