· about us

mccaren interiors is dedicated to designing modern, stylish interiors, which make the most of space, light and views. We operate alongside mccaren architecture and mccaren access, who have over 15 years experience on projects ranging from private residential extensions to commercial housing developments, and community facilities. With the benefit of our architectural experience we take a holistic approach, considering design challenges from all angles, and ensuring interior spaces and external architecture are integrated from the outset.

· philosophy

The importance of our interior environment is often not regarded highly enough. The use and function of available space, light and materials can not only enhance our daily lives but our health as well - after all we spend most of our lives inside. We believe that by maximising the available natural light and using natural and sustainable products where possible, we can create beautiful, functional, and Client specific interiors.

By nurturing a close working relationship with each Client, McCaren Interiors develops a thorough understanding of the existing space and the Project Brief, working towards a design solution that is both creative, pragmatic and appropriate to the clients needs. We strongly believe that effective communication between clients, contractors and consultants is a vital factor in providing a quality service and successful interiors.
