Anchoring our designs in a specific response to our client brief, Mim Design’s architectural projects are developed around site and surrounds. Our approach is driven by purposeful decision making, designed to ensure permanence and longevity, whilst stimulating the senses and encouraging interaction with the spaces. Every project is an open conversation with our clients in the first instance, followed by the construction crew, achieving new architectural grounds with each project. Architectural and interior packages are presented together to ensure integration. An open dialogue across the team nourishes creativity and is foundational for the continuation of our design through the development, documentation, and delivery of every project. From the macro scale of the building façade to micro of the joinery detailing, the project specific design philosophy informs our response, manifesting in every aspect of the design. Thoughtful spatial planning ensures a seamless flow of spaces, while materials, colours and finishes are applied with nuanced expression to the exterior and interior.


Mim Design has many years of experience in Planning with leading developers, individual residential clients, retailers, and hotel and hospitality clientele. Our ethos is strong in collaboration with clients, developers, and other consultants utlising workshops to create outstanding project specific interiors. We understand the need for a holistic view of total projects; from planning, analysis and adjacencies to a developer’s perspective, individual homeowners, retailers, and the hospitality sector. Covering all phases from philosophy, design intent, and customization, our Concept phase is established enabling the client to see, feel and understand the project we are creating with them. Taking pride in ensuring all concepts are achievable, Design Development involves finalizing the design direction with the client and project team. Our knowledge of local and international product provides the basis for the project’s overall aesthetic, with initial selections presented as early as Concept stage. The studio’s expansive library is an essential tool and is constantly being updated with new and inspiring products. Documentation is achieved to a high level of detail, aiding the tender and construction process. Our vast experience in commercial and residential services coordination, and our knowledge of space planning, interior detailing, and custom joinery, provides true satisfaction for our clients and builders with whom we work.
