In the ever-evolving landscape of the hospitality industry, the impact of design cannot be overstated.

The Working Spaces approach leans into the transformative power of design in crafting vibrant, interactive, and guest-centric spaces—especially as the industry undergoes constant change.

We spoke with Ms. Maria Stevenson, Senior Designer at Working Spaces, to gain unique perspectives on the changing dynamics within the hospitality sector, and how our client approach is helping lead the way.

Crafting Dynamic Spaces: The Role of Design

Design is more than aesthetics; it’s a pivotal force in shaping the atmosphere and functionality of spaces.

Ms. Stevenson sheds light on the dynamic role of design, emphasizing its crucial impact on the hospitality sector’s ever-shifting demands.

“Working in hospitality design is about understanding the evolving needs of clients. It’s not just about creating visually appealing spaces; it’s about adapting to new expectations and trends,” she says.

Creative Tetris: A Designer’s Perspective

Ms. Stevenson approaches her role at Working Spaces as if each project is a unique and exciting puzzle waiting to be solved. With a passion for design that transcends traditional boundaries, she sees her job as a creative puzzle, an intricate challenge that requires a blend of innovation and problem-solving.

For Maria, the joy lies in deciphering the complexities of each space, weaving together aesthetics and functionality to craft environments that not only meet client expectations but surpass them.

This solutions-focused mindset not only defines her approach to design but also reflects Working Spaces’ commitment to delivering solutions that are as visually stunning as they are functionally impeccable.

Hospitality Design Case Study: The Doorways Project

Working Spaces played a transformative role in the Doorways project, a significant endeavor with a nonprofit organization providing housing and support services for homeless individuals with HIV.

With a commitment to making a positive impact, Working Spaces meticulously furnished every inch of Doorways’ administrative building and housing units.

“The Doorways project became one of my most favorite spaces to design,” Maria passionately explains.

The project not only showcases the firm’s design expertise but also reflects our dedication to creating spaces that extend beyond aesthetics, and that contribute to the well-being and comfort of those in need in our communities.

Client-Centric Approach: Building Lasting Relationships

In the hospitality industry, client relationships are paramount. Maria shares her insights into maintaining a client-centric approach, fostering collaboration, and ensuring that every design reflects the client’s vision.

“Transparency is key. I don’t just give clients what they ask for; I interpret their needs and guide them toward what they truly want and what’s realistically needed. It’s a collaborative journey towards success,” Ms. Stevenson emphasizes.
