Jo’s professional journey began in commercial interiors, gaining extensive expertise in this field. By collaborating directly with architects, builders and owners, we ensure that your company’s culture, values and mission are embodied in every aspect of your office space. Our portfolio showcases a diverse range of projects across Australia, including doctors’ surgeries, gyms, showrooms, beauty salons, barristers’ chambers, building lobbies and advertising agencies. From concept design to fitout and final styling, we collaborate with industry contacts to source top-quality office furniture, workstations and storage solutions that perfectly align with your needs.


Key to the success of any project is having a clear understanding of our client’s requirements and aspirations. During the brief stage we take time to learn about your company; how it works and what it stands for, how it uses space and the workstations etc. We build a picture of your design project either through a site visit or looking at your floor plans and photographs, making sure we understand your timescale, budget and any structural or administrative requirements. We appraise any existing plans, discuss ideas, plan spaces and look at your options. Next, we provide our understanding of the brief, a project plan and a fee proposal. The agreement outlines the scope of work for the design and the associated fees.


Interpreting the detailed brief, we present the concept designs and drawings: floor plans, furniture layouts and any structural changes. All custom joinery is designed with plans, elevations and images of the details. We work with you to select the best designs and finishes.


Following concept approval, we progress to design development and details. This includes floor and wall coverings, lighting, soft furnishings, window treatments, furniture, ornaments, rugs, curated artwork and other interior accessories (we have access to a large range of trade only fabric and furniture suppliers). We also present final drawings for bespoke furniture, joinery and interior architecture and final finishes to be approved.


All colours, finishes and materials have been discussed and final selections are made. We send moodboards with samples of all proposed finishes plus imagery of suggested concepts for furniture and joinery (3D rendered drawings can also be provided). We then get your feedback to ensure we are in total agreement, after which joinery and all other drawings are finalised together with a written specification for furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E).


The schedule of works are outlined and agreed, and once all onsite requirements are met, works commence. Jo Taylor Design attends regular site meetings to ensure progress and specifications go to plan, giving you regular updates until the completion of your design project.+ Placement of décor items and accessories.
