What is a Commercial Architect?
A commercial architect wears many hats. He takes care of the design, the development (or redevelopment) and the interior design. Its role is to design and optimize commercial spaces (restaurant, office, shopping center, boutique, etc.) in order to maximize the commercial performance of businesses.
The objective of commercial architecture is to convey the brand image of the company while boosting sales through the creation of a stimulating atmosphere.

First, we organize a few ad hoc and strategic meetings to get to know you and analyze your needs. The goal is to collect as much information as possible in order to ensure that the commercial architecture project meets all of your requirements.
Planning and development
This step involves finding the location of the property and developing a preliminary plan of the building. Once the location is chosen and the budget estimate is approved, we move on to the next step.
Our team of architects takes care of developing a schematic design that includes all the details concerning the materials used, the volume of the building, the choice of colors, the lighting, the division of spaces, etc. The design takes into account the orientation of the building and the connection to public services.
This step allows you to visualize your future building. Then, the contractual documents are created in order to establish a project schedule and fix the costs of each construction phase.
SPACIA takes care of obtaining all compulsory permits and insurance. We also carry out an on-site inspection. The soil is tested to verify that there will be no unforeseen complications. During this stage, our team carefully coordinates and monitors the work.
It's time to move your project forward. Depending on the design and functionality of your commercial building, the construction stages include site excavation, underground utilities installation, concrete pouring, construction of steel structure and frame, roof installation, interior design, etc.
From urban cafes to corporate workspaces, our portfolio includes various creations that reflect our personalized approach.
