Commercial Services

We understand the intricacies of creating a physical space that will serve your business’s functional and aesthetic needs. Your space is an extension of your business and how customers physically experience your brand. We know that every detail, from space planning to sourcing furnishings and accessories to final placement and installation, contributes to the holistic atmosphere customers encounter the minute they walk in the door. We work with you to ensure the design of your space perfectly matches the brand experience you want to create. Whether searching for a new space, updating an existing one, or testing the feasibility of various design options, Atelier Drome’s Commercial Services supports you every step of the way.

Tenant Improvement Buildouts

The success and productivity of your business and employees hinge on how well a space serves their needs to get the job done. The same is true if your customers are going to have a good experience — one they rave about and that keeps people knocking on your door.

Every business has unique needs and one of our core values is listening, not only to what you envision for the layout, but also to how your culture or brand informs the design of the space. Whether a spa, retail location or office, the design should be an extension of your brand that creates an experiential connection between your customers and your philosophy.

Commercial Interior Design, Decor & Branding

Our full-service commercial interior design packages offer a comprehensive way to integrate your visual branding into your customer experience. And if needed, our talented design team can work with you to develop a brand concept based on your unique offerings. A professional eye on every detail ensures a seamless integration between your visual identity and your physical space.

The process begins with an initial consultation to learn about your business, brand values, and culture. We then create a custom proposal based on your needs including a budget outlining the project details. Your space is how customers physically experience your brand. Carefully selected finishes, furnishings, and customized design elements can define your brand experience and set you apart. We work diligently to ensure every single design element supports your vision, meets your budget, and is seamlessly executed.

Our full-service commercial interior design services typically include: conceptual development to reflect your current brand or help design a new one; selection of new interior fixtures, furnishings, décor, and surfaces including paint colors, flooring, and wall coverings; space planning for furnishings, displays, accessories, and artwork; design of custom furnishings, casework, carpet, and accessories as needed to reflect your unique brand; procurement services for furnishings, décor, and accessories; and coordinating with our branding team on signage or wayfinding as needed. Through it all, our experienced project managers will oversee budget, timeline, and final deliveries and installation.

Historic Renovations

A building’s history is often something to be celebrated. Our historic renovation services preserve the integrity of a building and honor the existing structure, while making it suitable for modern use. Not only are we committed to bringing the building up to today’s standards, we also want to prepare it for the future by extending its life for years to come. We are passionate about balancing the rich history of your building with today’s modern codes and regulations to bring you the best possible design solutions.

Navigating the required permits and guidelines required for an historic renovation and/or substantial alteration can be complicated. Our extensive experience with the permitting process means we can guide you through both the administrative and design aspects of a project to make the process as straightforward and painless as possible.

Feasibility Studies

With your dream design in mind, we work with you to determine whether a site or space can feasibly accommodate your vision—before you invest any time and money. Knowing whether the proposed use will trigger required upgrades to the space, and whether a building lies within a neighborhood design review area are two aspects paramount to understanding potential costs and timelines for a project.

Every property has its own unique conditions, and our team can determine exactly what may be built as well as identify any potential concerns or budget considerations.

We help you visualize the range of possibilities available for a specific property so that planning and construction can begin with as few surprises as possible. Our team is experienced in presenting to Neighborhood Design Review Boards, conveying designs in humanistic and experiential terms that allow reviewers to understand the core values of a design.

Pre-Lease Services

Finding the perfect space for your business can feel daunting. Our team works closely with you to help locate the right space and ensure it’s the perfect fit before signing a lease. We thoroughly vet properties for land use and building code requirements, helping you avoid delays and unexpected costs.

Working quickly to uncover the possibilities and limitations of potential properties, we help determine whether a space can be used as-is, will require renovation, or simply won’t work. Our extensive experience in Seattle’s competitive and time-sensitive real estate market gives you a leg up, ensuring the best chance of securing your perfect space. Our pre-lease services save you time and energy, allowing you to focus on what’s most important: your business.
