Our Approach

Three Fishes Interior Design is creative, yet practical and aims to deliver outcomes that are unique to the project and functional to both client and the end user. This in turn promotes profitability and longevity as a key outcome for the retailer.

We believe communication to be fundamental during any project to ensure openness and transparency, resulting in all parties having an understanding of the processes required to deliver an effective and successful project.

We are proud of the relationships that we have forged with both our clients, retailers as well as partners in the Design Industry. Here are just some of what they have had to say about their experiences in working with us.

The Three Fishes team were an integral part of the team that helped with the success of Ed Square Town Centre. Initially appointed in the early stages, they worked closely with the Development team to develop our leasing strategy to define the look and feel of the different precincts throughout the Centre. Once established, they wrote & created the precinct Style Guides, which were an integral tool that were successfully carried forward into the development. As the Retail Design Managers appointed for the development they excelled at striking the sometimes tenuous balance between elevated design and cost pressures, advocating for quality design throughout all tenancies. This is now is now paying dividends for the retailers. As the development progressed it was identified that there was further design development required for the mall interiors. Kate & her team were engaged to review and advise on suitable detailing and finishes to add layering to the public realm, to achieve the vision Frasers Property had for the project. This included the design of a number of aesthetic elements to elevate the experience such as Travelator graphics / entrances and nodal junctions of the mall. We also had a vision to create a children’s playground that would act as an attractor and help activate a weaker portion of the mall, and our original designer wasn’t meeting the brief. Three Fishes were engaged and immediately understood the brief and our vision and work within a defined budget to deliver a design which maximises the potential of the space. The playground is now a destination within the Centre, and has been shortlisted as well as winning several significant Australian Design industry awards. Our experience working with Three Fishes on Ed Square has been an extremely positive experience and has forged a partnership that we are carrying through to future developments within the Frasers Property Portfolio.

Kates approach to the Retail Design Management role is unique and it sets her apart from her competitors. Her level of communication and focus on upholding the brand of a retailer, as well as a quality design outcome is excellent. Her approach is always fair and reasonable and the manner that she approaches the negotiation process during the design phase is constructive.

As part of our repositioning program, we needed to ensure that tenancies were delivered to a high standard reflecting the premium nature of the assets & their place in a highly competitive market. We found that under Kate & her team, outcomes were delivered from not only a quality point of view but also in ensuring that the process was efficient & that delivery timetables were met ”

Victor Gaspar

General Manager


For over 20 years, Abacus Property have been working alongside Three Fishes Interior Design where they have been undertaking the Retail Design Management Role for our NSW assets. When I was recently appointed as General Manager of Leasing, one of my responsibilities was to streamline the design & delivery process and enhance the quality of fit outs across all of our assets. Three Fishes were the obvious choice to undertake this role & they are now responsible for all of our assets across NSW & Qld. Their attention to detail, passion for the retailer & value add they bring to the Retail Design Management process sets them apart & the changes in the overall retailer presentation is evident. They are aware of the commercial outcomes required for any deal & artfully combine the design process with the practicalities of a retail environment.
