Indoor spaces have a HUGE influence on people’s health, well-being, productivity, ability to learn, and so much more. Cushing Terrell’s interior design experts harness this influence to not only create more successful projects for our clients, but also enhance and improve people’s daily lives. We support projects across markets, including commercial, education, government, healthcare, multi-family and mixed-use, residential, and retail.

What is Interior Design?

Interior design is the creation and construction of an interior space that successfully meets the requirements of the end user and improves the human experience. Interior designers are responsible for providing a safe, functional, and accessible environment for a building’s occupants, and they achieve this through attention, adherence, and focus on codes, standards, regulations, accessibility, health, safety, and welfare.

Straight from the source:

“The buildings exceed all expectations. The feedback from [the teams] was glowing, citing how amazingly inclusive the whole [design] process was, how individuals felt heard (and that their voice actually made a difference) and how proud they now are of their workplace.”

Human-Centered Design

By marrying user research with collaborative and sustainable design, we make your spaces work for you.

The design process at Cushing Terrell starts and ends with research and along the way engages our many Interior Design areas of expertise including programming, space planning, visualization, building codes and systems, documentation, and project management. We optimize every design with multidisciplinary collaboration, to create integrated, responsible, accessible, inclusive, and above all, human-centric spaces.

Design Process

Cushing Terrell Director of Interior Design Sandi Rudy is interviewed by Metamorphosis Magazine for their “Leading Edge” video segment.

Every material matters.

No one expects the buildings where they spend their days to be working against them, but the average adult breathes in more than 4,000 gallons of air each day, and indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. We’re committed to healthy and sustainable environments, beginning with greening our materials library and joining the Material Bank pilot program for net-zero sampling and continuing through our Design for Freedom advocacy efforts.

It’s time to design for wellness.

Our interior design team aims to positively impact quality of life and culture within the built environment. Through our work, we have the opportunity to influence how people experience their surroundings — how they move through the different spaces they encounter in their daily lives — and it’s incredibly rewarding.
