interior design services
We believe that how we design our interior spaces can have a profound impact on our happiness, health and well-being. Our design solutions integrate programming, space planning, leading-edge technologies, sustainability, energy efficiency, lighting, ergonomics, acoustics, brand integration, color, material and furniture as tools that positively impact and create healthy environments and enhance performance. The design of bright, spatially inspiring and collaborative spaces that help attract and retain loyal talent has become a hallmark of our brand and service.
master planning + feasibility studies
The purpose of master planning is to utilize each building component as an incremental addition to a larger whole. Bortolotto has completed a large number of master planning, feasibility and costing studies that help our clients and their stakeholders to plan for change. Throughout this process we collaborate with a diverse range of specialists and consultants, experts in their respective fields and who we have long-standing relationships with. Our experience ensures that our solutions are economically viable while being socially and environmentally responsive.
restoration, revitalization + renovation
Bringing new life and purpose to old buildings is a challenging and equally rewarding task. Bortolotto has transformed a derelict industrial space into a lively, multi-purpose college common area, uncovered wood-beam ceilings and re-purposed the natural beauty in a variety of municipal office and administrative spaces and restored historical and heritage 6-floors of space for an internationally-renowned educational institute. By reinterpreting buildings for contemporary purposes, we keep alive a vital link with the past and blend new and old in the fabric of urban life.
