Marine Interior Design

Being new build or re-fit projects the challenges of Marine Interiors are very similar. The spectrum of a refurbishment can be very broad, from simply replacing finishes or to the full demolition and refit of a space. Each demand close attention to compliance and safety, durability, and sustainability.

In order to maintain a healthy growth for the industry and maintain positive stabilisation for our clients and designers, we are faced with a unified choice on how we can tackle these challenges and remain sustainable.


In a world where sustainability is becoming essential, we are seeing the industry responding very positively with discussions on how contractors must push boundaries on how to minimize waste, pollution and durability. It goes without saying that durability equals less maintenance and subsequently costs.
