Designer Profile

Robinson & Associates is a Houston based interior design firm providing comprehensive commercial and residential interior design services through a collaboration of talent. The increasingly complex needs of planning and design are achieved through this expanded technical expertise and range of services. Robinson & Associates has developed a network of trained technicians to assist on all aspects that a project could demand.

Robinson & Associates functions as coordinator of these technicians; calling aboard each specialists as each project dictates. While our collaboration begins with the client; it also could include technicians in the following areas:

•Architectural
•Engineering
•Graphics
•Construction
•Fabrication

Robinson & Associates represents 30 years of industry experience gained through participation on all aspects of relocation, expansion and renovation on major corporate, financial, health care, hospitality and residential projects. Planning and design recommendations are developed in response to an objective analysis of a Client's particular functional requirements and image, rather than through a preconceived design philosophy.

Robinson & Associates stresses the importance to budgets and schedules. These are prepared at the inception of a project and reviewed and updated at each critical checkpoint and presentation with the Client.

The sound technical and design base of Robinson & Associates underscores the increasing need for specialized design services. Robinson & Associates integrates a working knowledge of interior design and building construction with an equally important knowledge of office procedures, systems and equipment.
