Helping clients transform the way they express their business culture is California-based Hibner Design Group. The firm prides itself on the ability to elevate and enhance commercial spaces in an efficient and affordable manner. “We look at a space not only from a design perspective, but also from operation and financial standpoints and we strive to deliver the best service that suits all the clients’ needs,” says Maryanne Hibner, principal at Hibner Design Group, and former director of design at the Irvine Company.
Established in 2012, Hibner Design Group had humble beginnings fueled by Maryanne’s mission to offer flexibility and affordability in interior design projects. In her words, she combines her experience as a mother with her perspective of a female entrepreneur to constantly find inspiration in everyday instances, converting and weaving them into beautiful spaces that breathe quality and creativity. Today, Hibner Design Group specializes in multi-family, hospitality, and commercial projects.

Another aspect that differentiates Hibner Design Group from its contemporaries is its investment in technology. The firm leverages Autodesk Revit as their preferred BIM (Building Information Modeling) software, significantly elevating the efficiency of otherwise cumbersome documentation processes. Hibner Design Group has many success stories since their inception. For example, the firm helped a real estate developer renovate their newly purchased (early 1990s) property in Woodland Hills, CA. The owner initially wanted to transform it to fit with the times. Hibner Design Group was approached, then collaborated with the architect to assess the best way to revitalize elements of the building to transform its appeal with quality and purpose. The client, so pleased with the results, continues to work with the Hibner Design Group to expand its influence on the look and feel of the overall property.
Looking ahead, Hibner Design Group aims to expand its team of designers and associates to establish its place in the affordable housing arena. Additionally, the firm plans to capitalize on the imminent opportunities that the hospitality industry is bound to present as it makes a comeback after the pandemic. In conclusion, Maryanne reiterates the ethos of her company, “We will continue to look at interior design projects holistically and leverage our team’s collaboration and expertise to help businesses transform their spaces in a way that aligns with their vision.”
