Project: Fashionphile’s new 31,000 SF HQ offices/ retail/ fulfillment facility (Carlsbad)

The Look: Modern with playful elements like a slide to transport people or purses & a living room with fireplace. The environment is clean and sophisticated, serving as a backdrop for the main attraction: luxury handbags

Live By Design: Ocio Design Group



The design of your work environment is an open book

Every company has a story and your workplace is a vehicle to tell that story. At Ocio Design Group when we set out to get our heads around a project we don’t just tackle the usual suspects – headcounts, measurements, growth projections – but we also get to know how your company got started, what the value proposition of your product/service is, how your employees work and play together. Having an in-depth understanding of your tangibles and intangibles allows us to tease out the essence of your brand and apply what we've learned to the design and flow of your space. Get to know Ocio Design Group and find out how we can design a workplace that truly represents what your company is about!

Client Testimonial Image


Crab Hut

“Working with Ocio on the design and layout of our third restaurant has truly been a collaborative effort. The team got to know us and understand how our restaurant runs, how we interact with our customers. That's why they were able to take our vision and enhance it in ways we hadn't even imagined."

- Kuan & Kim Phan, Owners, Crab Hut
