Architectural mouldings for commercial and residential buildings

Design and Visual Concepts is the UK’s leading manufacturer of bespoke and low-volume architectural design features. Over the past twenty years we have built a solid reputation for delivering high-quality moulded installations using materials such as Glass Reinforced Gypsum (GRG), GRC/Jesmonite and GRP. A customer focused approach and collaborative outlook has helped us to deliver great customer service to clients across many industries. Here we explain some of the many areas in which we work.

Bespoke interior design features for modern buildings

We specialise in creating custom profiles for projects of high architectural demand. Whether it is eye catching wall panels, curved ceiling bulkheads, column casings or shaped suspended ceiling features, we have the design knowledge and materials experience to enhance the flagship areas of your project.


Weatherproof external cladding and façades

Customise external areas of your building using cladding and enrichments made from GRC or Jesmonite. Lightweight, versatile and capable of reproducing the look of Portland Stone, White Marble, Silver Grey Granite and more, we can cover the whole façade or mould decorative elements to your exact requirements.


High end residential interior design

If you are looking for an appealing modern house interior for your luxury home, ask us to create a feature piece that makes your home a design statement. For example, we have recently completed a moulded and tiled patio area made of Jesmonite at a London apartment, and have extensive experience of creating bespoke curved balustrade’s and ceiling features in GRG. There are so many possible choices of texture, colour and pattern that the limit is your imagination!


Commercial interior design

Many of our clients are companies or corporations looking to create a modern office interior that reflects their successful business, meaning we have become experts in office interior design, creating bespoke architectural pieces such as office reception ceiling designs and curved stairways – some of which can be seen on our Projects page. IBM and Skype are two such companies we have worked with. If you are decorating a workspace, break-out zone or walk-through area and are looking for a feature wall or ceiling, we can help you!


Bespoke retail shop fittings

Moulded GRG and Jesmonite are great materials for creating interesting retail store designs. We regularly work with architects and shop fitters to create fixtures and point-of-sale that raise the all-important in-store experience to a higher level. One example is our award-winning retail shop ceiling design for the Emson Haig outlet at Lakeside, Thurrock. Talk to us about creating bespoke shop fittings to your concept and specification.


Hotel architecture

Many of the office and residential architectural mouldings we can manufacture are equally applicable to hotels, bars and restaurants, adding flair to reception, break-out, auditorium and walk-through areas where extension of a design theme or a bold contrast will make a lasting impression on visitors. We can also create external enrichments, cladding and façades in Jesmonite which are lighter and more cost effective than using the equivalent natural raw materials i.e. sandstone, marble etc.


Restaurant interior design

If you are developing a restaurant bar design no doubt you are looking for interesting materials and restaurant architecture ideas to set your project apart from the rest. We have the ability to create moulded wall panels and ceiling features using GRG or Jesmonite that provide seamless and impactful decoration in a range of finishes. Jesmonite offers the widest range of choice, with material finishes that look and behave like granite, stone, bronze, brass and more. Learn more about Jesmonite here.


Transportation hub architecture

We are able to provide bespoke design features of the kind suitable for railway stations, airport departures areas or business lounges. Our extensive experience includes the manufacture and installation of GRG column casings at Birmingham New Street station and curved elements of walkway tunnel ceilings for the redevelopment of King’s Cross station on the London Underground.
