At Merit, we don’t rest on past achievements and finished projects — however great they are.
For us, it’s not about how far we’ve come, but the excitement for what we are yet to achieve — the impact our designs will have on the people who inhabit these spaces.
Our designs nurture employee well-being and drive business productivity in perfect symbiosis.
We design from the inside out with people at the core. This principle allows us to take our clients brief and use our industry experience and knowledge to provide an innovative space that reflects best-practice design and our client’s culture.
We consider sustainability throughout the design process.
Whenever possible, we make eco-conscious design decisions like careful space planning, maximising natural elements such as sunlight for overall wellbeing, and by introducing plant life and strategically placed shading to lessen the dependency on artificial lighting, cooling and heating within the office space.
Throughout the building process, Merit recycles and disposes of all materials in an environmentally-friendly way, where possible. These design decisions not only benefit the planet but create healthier, more uplifting work habitats for people to enjoy.
Whether selecting materials, researching their origins or assessing how long they will be in-situ for, we think strategically about the products and suppliers we use in our commercial fitouts.
We are a family owned and operated business that values people above all else. We’re cohesive operators who push the boundaries of innovation, ingenuity, and influence to deliver office interior design solutions that do more than just fill a space – they inspire greatness in your people and culture.
The value we place on people starts within our own walls, empowering each member of the Merit Interiors team to contribute their expertise and energy towards the success of our business.
