Marine Interior Design
Spear Green Design considers the following elements and many more when designing a harmonious and stylish interior within the specialised, lightweight marine fitout field:
- Space planning
- Traffic flow
- Ergonomics and anthropometry
- Access and egress
- Safety and evacuation
- Specialised equipment
- Relationships of hull form and interesting void spaces
- Communications and entertainment systems
- Finishes and materials specification
- Colour, themes and styles
all within the boundaries of applicable rules.
The exterior styling of any vessel, whether a newbuild or a refit is a reflection of the owner’s personality and business goals. We design vessels above the waterline to suit corporate requirements and vessel’s purpose, the climate and conditions in which it will operate, the extremes of weather it may experience, parameters of efficiency and manning and operational aspects. Our Industrial Design qualifications and experience contribute strongly to this and several other aspects of our work.
Much of our work involves communication through documentation. Whether that comprises exterior profiles and models for styling, interior renderings, 3D modelling, animations and flythroughs, general arrangements, safety, emergency, fire and damage plans, schematic diagrams and systems drawings, construction drawings – backed up by extremely detailed specifications. Such documentation is required for owners, builders, other Naval Architects, Classification Societies, Insurers, Surveyors as well as masters and supply of drawings for on board a vessel and as marketing tools.
Spear Green Design often manage projects from design through construction and implementation to delivery. We have managed build teams for refits as well as acting as owner’s representatives for vessels as diverse as yacht restorations and refits through to cruise ship conversions. Our thorough understanding of a project from our involvement in its design leads to an intimate and detailed knowledge of an owners requirements and goals.
