Commercial Buildings


Commercial architecture is its own field of design, with unique concerns and practices. To give a simple commercial architecture definition, it is architecture focused solely on buildings and spaces that are used for commercial purposes. These include offices, retail outlets, and other facilities where commercial business is conducted.

Commercial architects work to understand the behavior of customers and others who interact with their client’s business. This requires a firm grasp of the psychology of sales, as well as a familiarity with consumer trends.

Most importantly, commercial architects investigate how various design choices can influence how consumers behave, what decisions they make, and how they perceive the client’s brand, products, and services.
