Working with you

 

All our projects start with a personal phone consultation, a chance for you to tell us about your project and for us to tell you how we work.  If this sounds good, the next stage will be to visit you at your property.  At this meeting you can show us around, so that we can get an understanding of the space and what you are looking to achieve.  We will tell you more about how we work and show you some examples.  If we fit the bill, then a scope and fee estimate for the project is drawn up.

The Initial Design Stages - Concept Development

 Preliminary Preparation

This stage is all about getting to know you and the property. We take the brief, discuss budget, inspirational imagery is used to explore your taste and requirements.  We measure up the property.

Concept Development

Space planning options are considered for each room, to ensure that you achieve the best functionality.  Drawing on your inspiration and style we set the mood.  We make any tweaks to ensure you have a layout, colour and mood concept that you’re happy with.

Design Development

Once you're happy with the concept design we develop the design in further detail. 

Technical drawings are created for construction detail or bespoke items.  If you are tendering the work for a contractor, these will be used alongside any floorplans and specification as part of the tender package.

At this stage we source any furniture, fabric and fittings for your project to your agreed budget - utilising our little black book of trade suppliers.

Implementation & Beyond

We can work with the appointed contractor, project manager or architect to project monitor the build, to ensure what is drawn is built.  Working with our trusted partners we can coordinate the delivery and installation of all furniture and accessories. 

Many clients continue to engage us once their project is complete designing further spaces.  Dropped a cup of coffee on the new sofa?  We're happy to work with you and our partners, to seek a remedy for any home mishaps that might occur beyond the project completion.
