Interior & Building Design

Investing in a hospitality fitout in Australia is not a straightforward process. But with M Studio's interior and building design services, the interior of your hospitality space will provide your patrons with the unique dining experience that the venue has to offer. We carefully choose colours, materials, and fixtures to align with your brand and aesthetic. Behind all the beautiful and amazing design, there are intricate things that need to be done to bring the space to life and create memorable experiences. Our interior and building design services prioritise your business model and processes, arranging the most efficient layout and design for the best use of spaces so you can do what you do best.

Interior & Building Design

Designing a Hospitality Fitout with M Studio

As building designers, we have been using National Construction Code (NCC) and Australian Standards on a day-to-day basis for the past 10 years: meeting the right ceiling height, the luminance specified for the lighting, the slip rating indicated for the flooring, and the fire rating for wallcoverings. You can rest easy that we can look after the planning approval process.

Investing in a new space in the shopping village/centre will be a breeze as we will also take care of the extra steps involved for design approval with the retail design manager as your appointed retail designer.

How It Works

Every project is unique and very individual. We offer tailored interior and building design services to suit your needs and budget. Let's start bringing your next hospitality space to life!


We want to get to know you to provide you the best building design services possible! During our meet and greet, we will delve deep into every aspect of your business, draft the project proposal, create a timeline, and begin investigation of site constraints.

Design Planning

We work on the interior and building design with schematic stage, costing exercise, 3D renders, branding, and concept design. If the fitout is within a strata building or shopping centre, we also handle concept design submission to the strata or retail design manager as your Retail Designer.

Design Development

Once the concept design is approved by you and/or retail design manager, we begin with tender/construction documentation so the builders can provide you with quotations and for the certifier and retail design manager to make an assessment.


We also get involved during the construction stage. We provide assistance by attending to enquiries from the builder and provide design solutions to new constraints that may arise on-site during demolition. We also liaise with all trade persons involved to gather all required documents for occupation certificate submission so you can start doing what you do best smoothly in a timely manner!

M Studio Advantages

What sets M Studio above other interior design studios? We can offer building design services by liaising directly with the builder, principal certifying authorities, building surveyors, strata managers, centre management, landlords, and council town planners to bring your hospitality fitout from concept to reality.

M Studio can be involved every step of the way: from as early as Food & Beverage (F&B) Concept, looking for ideal location to trade, and tenancy coordination up until the venue is ready to trade.


Sabrina was professional and responsive. She handled the whole process of design and approvals, which made my work as a novice business owner easier to get the venue built and opened. She also took the time to explain to me the processes and requirements.



Very high quality work. Highly recommended.



Sabrina made the whole process of design, documentation and certification of our 2 venues seamless and easy. Very professional, prompt, knowledgeable and great to work with.

Director, and Head Chef

Sabrina is one of the most responsible and responsive designers I have met in my 20+ years of design and consultancy career. High recommended if you want someone who works with you and be respectful!




Working with space and elements, a building designer is in charge of creating the building and interior design of the space for a coherent and functional structure while ensuring the space is compliant with National Construction Code (NCC) and Australian Standards. Aside from creating floor plans based on building design sketches, they also help bring the design to life by assisting with the planning permit process, visiting construction sites, communicating with consultants, and overseeing contractors.

Assessing space requirements, an interior designer works with colours, elements, textures, fixtures, and furnishings to create safe and functional yet aesthetically pleasing interiors that adhere to building code and inspection requirements.

A building designer is a professional who knows all the ins and outs of the building trade and creates plans and designs that suit the particular needs, style, and budget of the client. An architect is also an expert in the necessary aspects of building design and can create your ideal space, but undertook practical placements and a registration examination.
