Decorespaço International have been fitting retail spaces in shopping centres and at airports for over 15 years. They are more than just shopfitters. Their exceptional management and communication skills enable them to get projects completed successfully, on time and within budget every time. Decorespaço International work in small, integrated, multidisciplinary teams. The company deals with everything a project requires, taking a space from bare walls to a fully fitted and equipped retail unit ready to receive the first customer.
The founders and owners of Decorespaço are Anneke Renes and Geert Sillevis, both born in Holland, but living in Portugal for more than 20 years. They have a personal commitment to providing a service of the highest quality, based on a real appreciation of design, function, beauty and the realities of a building site at an airport or shopping centre far from home.
They speak several languages and give high priority to effective and open communication with clients. The successful growth of their business has demonstrated clearly that their approach is not just words, but forms a genuine part of their daily activities.
José Carlos Rosa, now COO of Dufry South America and formerly Director of Retail, Portuguese Airports Authority (ANA) worked with them closely, and says: "For travel retail building, I always suggest Decorespaço - a partner that we trust."
Decorespaço (decorespaco-international.com) have an enviable track record. The company has fitted over 300 retail spaces over more than 15 years, with 95% of their clients coming back for more. These clients include Adolfo Dominguez, Bally, Bata, Benetton, Cacharel, Calvin Klein, Canadian Embassy Lisbon, Duty Free shops at all Portuguese airports, Etam, FNAC Portugal, Football Corner, Footlocker, GrandOptical, Haägen Dazs, Imaginarium, Isanti, Lee Cooper, Marionnaud, Mr Minit, Ouro Vivo, Portuguese Airports Authority (ANA), Puma, H Stern, Sunglass Hut, Tie Rack.
It is from this solid base that they are now reaching out into a more international market, having had the experience already of working all over Portugal and in Madeira. Part of this process has been to launch a new English language website. Their aim is to put their practical, aesthetic and organisational skills to full use and to become major players in the international shopfitting market.
