Interior Design

SMMA's Interior Design team is known for creating environments that reflect and enhance the identity, health, and culture of our clients. We work outside conventional approaches by integrating best practices from multiple disciplines and design traditions, combining ingenuity with a practical ability to meet demanding schedules and fixed budgets.

Balanced Approach

The changing American workplace is producing a forward-thinking definition of the office. Today, the office is mobile, adaptable, and open to facilitate the free exchange of ideas. We recognize that each individual client requires a distinct and balanced program designed to fit their cultural and operational needs. We help define this balance, developing a design solution uniquely suited to their needs and goals.

Work + Fun

Our interior designers thrive on meeting the challenge of a custom solution, and excel in the process of exploring, testing, and confirming each element of the project design. We enjoy advancing through the process, making strong, personal relationships with clients along the way. This results in vibrant, transparent, and healthy environments that foster employee satisfaction and success.

Under the “Next-Generation Office” (NGO) moniker, and using the Penn Plaza office as a testing ground, SMMA collaborated with EMC to launch a new space paradigm, emphasizing collaboration over hierarchy and allowing for the accommodation of visiting sales staff.
