Creating beautiful and functional environments for your success is our business.

We are forward-thinking in our approach to problem-solving, responsive to our clients' needs, passionate about supporting their ambitions, and personal in our strategy.

We believe in creativity.

Any amount of success relies on innovative thought and action. At HIVE, we ask difficult questions, push boundaries, evaluate our methods, and explore countless ideas throughout the lifespan of every project. Through this process, we're able to craft creative solutions for you and your business.

We believe in community.

We know first-hand the role that teamwork plays in any successful design. We carry this value beyond our internal team of creatives by fully collaborating with each client and everyone that their success depends on, from staff to vendors to customers.

We believe in our surroundings.

Project by project, our belief in the impact of one's surroundings grows stronger. From productivity levels and company culture to overall sales, we have helped businesses transcend their ambitions through improved physical environments and elevated experiences ... and we have the numbers to prove it!

Known for her friendly and out-going personality, she shows genuine interest in others' endeavors and an eagerness to find a way to facilitate their aspirations through design.

Designer / Fabricator, AnCrann Furniture

HIVE and AnCrann have collaborated on furniture design, retail and window displays for more than six years. Kevin is a seventh generation furniture maker from Ireland who's keen attention to detail and creative mind makes him an invaluable part of the HIVE design team.

“As with all of the consultants I've recommended to you for this project, there are specific reasons I recommended Gini. The first is that she is frankly by far the hardest-working interior designer I've ever found. She does a fantastic job of thoroughly covering all the necessary bases for a reasonable fee. Unlike some designers, Gini does not have a huge ego, and is not a prima donna. This in turn makes the time spent working with her both more enjoyable and more productive.”

- Maury Hurt, AIA Principal Hurt Architecture
