“Put a good business in a better building and it will become a better business.”
Mark Simpson, Chair of Design
BDP’s interior design profession was established in 1973 and is renowned as the first dedicated interior design studio operating within a major British design consultancy.
The interior design team has evolved to become a multi-award winning, international studio of more than 100 designers and hosts an enviable track record working with clients including Google, AstraZeneca, Netflix, PwC, The Royal Albert Hall, IKEA, Berkeley Homes, Great Ormond Street Hospital and many more.
Working from our studios in the UK and Toronto, alongside our network of global teams, our specialists include interior designers, architects, graphic, branding and wayfinding experts, product, furniture and industrial designers, workplace strategists and sustainability experts.
The diversity and range of our portfolio across a variety of sectors is one of our key strengths, allowing us to connect with our clients in an informed and unique way. This diversity is extremely important to us and further enhanced by the wide range of our projects from small specialist fit-outs to large complex corporate headquarters, educational establishments and healthcare facilities.
People are placed at the centre of our design philosophy. Understanding client needs is fundamental to us as designers and our approach is crucially underpinned by stakeholder engagement and a thorough understanding of organisation culture.
We firmly believe in the power of good interior design and the positive impact we can have on the way we work, live, learn and heal.
