RETAIL Design environments that ENGAGE and PERFORM.
The vitality and style that distinguish Neumann/Smith are reflected in the firm’s retail architecture and mix-use design. We provide professional services for the development of shopping malls, mixed-use developments, specialty shops, dining facilities, and entertainment centers across the country.
Neumann/Smith offers a wide range of specialized retail design and mix-use services in Detriot to help clients address the evolving needs of their retail developments including master planning, site development, project management, environmental graphics, due diligence, sustainable design assessments, and tenant coordination.
Neumann/Smith’s master planning process allows clients to identify and analyze key planning and development issues to maximize site potential. Comprehensive site analysis and preliminary conceptual designs are instrumental in conveying our clients’ vision to prospective tenants and supporting their marketing strategy.
Close collaboration with mall developers, retailers, civil engineering consultants and local building officials results in the artful integration of buildings and site, enhancing the retail environment. We have an exceptional track record of success with site plan approvals, rezoning, and zoning board of appeals.
A history of working with real estate developers, where time is money, makes us different from most architects. We understand the value of responding quickly, preparing comprehensive bid documents that result in lower costs and ease of construction, anticipating problems, adapting to change, and providing alternatives when necessary to keep projects on time and within budget. Master organizers, our project managers provide quality control for the minute details that make the difference between a good project and a great one.
Neumann/Smith creates environmental graphics that enrich the interior and exterior retail architecture environment. Supported by our in-house 3D studio, we can meet all of our clients’ graphic needs, from signage and wayfinding programs to wall graphics, mall barricades, and marketing graphics.
