 Grant Filipoff is an Associate Director at Bates Smart and Principal Interior Designer with a passion to create environments in which to work, live, socialise and relax.

Working closely with conceptual architects, Grant’s skill in both the planning and integration of strong interior concepts has been used for many of Bates Smart’s projects. He collaborates with clients at the very inception of a project, ensuring a strong design direction is established from the beginning, developing a narrative for the ensuing project to follow.
