Places with Meaning 

Huntsman’s mission is to elevate the human experience by designing places that connect, sustain, and inspire. Our work prioritizes human wellbeing, environmental stewardship, and social impact. We collaboratively explore our clients’ unique aspirations and culture and together we create places with meaning.
 
Whether developing workplace strategy, optimizing existing space, or designing branded environments, we place our clients’ values and goals above any signature style, trend, or canned approach. We develop unique and thoughtful solutions with a sense of place. Creating built environments that positively affect individuals, organizations, and communities while respecting our planet lies at the very root of our passion to design.

​Interior Design

Impactful design begins with the consideration of the user’s experience. Leveraging our deep understanding of employee engagement, productivity, wellness, and sustainable strategies coupled with performance data on built environments, we deliver measurable value towards our clients’ real estate strategies. Our creative and technical solutions enhance workplace culture, support organizational goals, and reflect brand strategy.

Architecture

A building's second or third act can often be its best. Our core belief in urban renewal, resource conservation, and environmental responsibility fuels our work in preservation, building repositioning, and adaptive reuse. We focus on maximizing the potential of existing buildings and create inspiring solutions that help increase the value of our client's assets.​ Our value-add approach is rooted in exploring strategy, context, and unrealized opportunities of each property.

Strategic Consulting

Designing for transformation is in our DNA. Our Workplace Strategy services address our clients’ evolving needs with comprehensive action plans and innovative concepts that have measurable impact. The result is human-centric spaces focused on wellness, sustainability, and inclusivity. 

 

Whether for immediate project implementation or a long-term vision, we work with building owners to develop and execute real estate strategies including occupancy and leasing models, revitalization and infrastructure upgrades, and comprehensive building repositioning plans that address sustainability, wellness, amenities, security and access, and branding from street to suite.
