Comfortable & Ergonomic Design

It is essential to utilize natural lighting, the environment, and optimize space planning. Interiors must balance exterior aesthetics for human comfort and harmony. Our goal at Master & Commander Architects is to promote comfort and ergonomics while staying true to your unique stand-out style.

Our hospitality practice focuses on high-value collaborative processes that allow us to provide clients with increased value and innovative solutions. The MCCM team consists of solution-oriented engineers and designers who share their creativity and technical skills to provide valuable results in all aspects of hospitality and construction.

A particularly important area of hospitality is the diversity of client needs and interest. Understanding our clientele is essential.

We have divided our standard pre-design process into steps that the client can evaluate. This method gives a solid idea of current development and serves as a point of approval.

Frequently assessing the project helps us eliminate all the "unknown knowns" and "known unknowns" - risk management. Effectual risk management allows us to decrease potential risks for our clients and ensure a smooth shift between phases.

Master & Commander Architects focuses on designing notable restaurants that heighten the client's experience while solving the various issues that are related to hospitality fields. Beautiful interior design is just the tip of the iceberg.

First and foremost, MCCM studies the target audience to determine how to fascinate them and keep them coming back. Great design isn’t something that always stands out but instead supports the overall sensations and ambiance. The materials, space arrangement, and small details are often all it takes to attract attention. 

The second, equally important part is the finesse of day-to-day operations. This process includes a logical seating arrangement and additional space – pantries, kitchen, restrooms, walk-in-freezers, loading zones, and more. Circulation should flow naturally, and patrons should be able to know where to go intuitively. 

Lastly, ambiance plays a significant role in making a lasting impression. Depending on the type of ideal clientele, we can encourage fast or slow turnover, create an inviting atmosphere, and make people feel at home.  The airiness, lighting, and acoustics play an important role.

Thanks to over 20 years of professional experience, MCCM creates spaces that meet expectations — starting from permitting and licenses to the construction process — to go flawlessly.
