Managing Executive

"In many respects, the design experience bar has been raised in many different business sectors throughout the world. Consider the retail/lifestyle experience, the hospitality/spa experience, the culinary/restaurant experience and the workplace experience. Enlightened business leaders recognize that good design is good for business."


The embodiment of the “brand” in a physical architecture is of paramount importance for many of our clients. Many CEO’s are determined to change their organizational cultures and enable and empower their respective workforces. They recognize that good design affects morale, productivity, organizational culture, real estate efficiency, speed to market and the ability to communicate and collaborate. A progressive and forward thinking work environment is a big factor in the “attract and retain value equation”, particularly in a business climate that offers virtually full employment. We at TPG are excited by the challenge of creating environments that affect our clients businesses.
