Our Culture

about our hilton head designers at the j banks design group

Based in Hilton Head Island, we live, breathe, and experience the resort lifestyle as we work and play. Resort hospitality is our specialty, and we bring a unique sense of place to each property. We love watching people gather, connect, and linger in the spaces we have crafted, while using the spaces precisely as we imagined they would when we designed them.

Our associates are located across the U.S. and work to create beautiful interiors domestically and internationally, including projects in Mexico, Canada, Ireland, England and Italy. Our trademark approach creates the essence of each project, capturing a sense of place that is true to each of our clients, clubs, hotels, resorts, spas and restaurants.

For a design consultation on your home, or to discuss a commercial or hospitality design project, we welcome you to call our studio today at 843.681.5122.
