Design Compendium is a multidisciplinary design/build firm in the heart of Brooklyn, NY. We offer our clients a full portfolio of services in Architecture, Interior Architecture, Branding, Industrial Design, Store Planning, Hospitality, Visual Merchandising, and Retail. Guided by co-founders, Lou Mahr and Godfrey Rayner, we strive for quality and perfection in all the work we produce, taking our inspiration and creative vision from nature and classic forms.
Design Compendium got its start in retail design, and for twenty-six years we have been providing clients such as GUCCI, CHANEL, and COLE HAAN with their Visual Merchandising, Retail Development, and Branding requirements both nationally and internationally.
During the past six years we have responded to the growing needs of the Architecture and Interior Architecture industries. We recognize these development opportunities as a means to grow our services and influence in the design industry. We have had the pleasure to work with such clients as ADAM TIHANY, BBG-BBGM, ICRAVE, STARWOOD, and MGM HOTELS.
We have been successful, and will continue to be successful, because of our willingness to fit into the design process at any stage. Our philosophy is to approach every project with a unique creative vision driven by the client’s needs, while staying completely flexible throughout the design process. We strive to be entrepreneurial and creative, continually learning, evolving, and growing through collaboration with clients in an effort to design better environments for us all to live in and experience.
