In 2001, one man had a mission to make healthcare beautiful.
The result is a Diverse family-like team delivering outstanding projects through the efficient integration of interior architecture, project management,& procurement.
The idea of a beautiful doctor's office was an oxymoron when DMG started. Many in the healthcare field were focused on low cost and little thought was being given to how design can improve the overall experience for patient and staff alike. At the same the meta trend of the customer experience was beginning to take hold across multiple vertical markets. Before Starbucks coffee was sold in a commoditized way, for many it did not matter if it was bought at a gas station or McDonalds. Starbucks introduced a new concept — higher quality coffee delivered in a friendly cool designed environment. The design materials were not expensive and the space was inviting.
Since then, DMG has been blessed with great people and wonderful clients. We are not afraid to try new things in the effort to better serve our clients. We value flexibility and excel at adapting to client's with unique needs. We like to work from the same side of the table as our clients on a project and see our office as an extension of our clients's business. Instead of being an outside firm, our clients come to feel like we are part of their team. This approach helps build trust and also allows us to grow with our clients.
After 15 years, the man has become a strong team that invites clients to return again and again.
DMG has from the beginning always been very relationship driven. Our clients have all come to us by referral and many become repeat clients as they move or expand.
Design Management Group: Life enhancing design that nurtures a sense of purpose & human connection.
DMG IS A FIRM THAT INTEGRATES INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE, PROJECT MANAGEMENT, AND CURATED PROCUREMENT TO CREATE GREAT ENVIRONMENTS
Good design is not unlike setting the table. A wonderful dinner is more often than not part of an entire experience. The food is important but there are other components like the people, the table setting, the view, the mood of the room. At DMG our healthcare and workplace practices are based around the idea that design needs to address both the functional and the needs of the whole person. Healing, community, and productivity are the outcomes of thoughtful, successful design process.
The right quality of light, connections to the natural, well chosen finishes, & appropriate furniture all set the stage for life to happen in the best possible way. Life and the world will be forever uncertain but well designed spaces can and do provide the chance for people to experience momentary comfort, security, and highest level human thinking and engagement.
DMG ASPIRES TO THE IDEA THAT OUR CLIENT'S STYLE IS OUR STYLE.
Rather than a single inspiration, we try to engage with our clients to develop a design vision for each project. Sometimes the vision has been based on a particular location in the world, or an inspiring picture, or even the love of a particular color. As a firm we welcome and encourage the use of original art and custom built furniture and fixtures. We try to avoid a cookie cutter approach to design by using an interesting mix of materials and manufacturer's with each project.
Our designs look towards the future but do so in a way that the spaces feel warm and welcoming. Good space needs to feel relatable and commercial design needs to speak to range of different people. We have identified with healing design movement from our founding and our now trying to incorporate some of these same practices in our workplace projects.
