Our vision is to create strong, lasting spaces & brands and enhance consumer experience through every aspect of interior design.

Key to our success is the detail to which our interior designs consider how effective, efficient layout creates a sound foundation. The flow of a space in an office, bar and restaurant setting is vital to its operation – not only for consumer happiness but worker involvement and retention too.

How is a restaurant heated, or cooled? How is an office space used at different times of the day? How is a bar lit and how does that affect mood and purchasing habits? What colours are best suited to the product on offer to maximise purchasing. Did you know coffee tastes better out of a red cup – Or that low lighting in a restaurant makes us choose less healthy foods? Questions like these help form the cornerstone of our interior design process.

People behave very differently in different environments, 2G help our clients understand how this happens in their restaurant, bar or office space and how best to play to their strengths. How environment affects behaviour. Our in-house team of interior designers, project managers and tradesman work together to make our ideas a reality. From the inception of an idea to the finished article our team will guide you through the design & build process.
