British Institute of Interior Design - Associate

Design Process:

We have over 30 years experience behind us and our services are tailored to suit your individual needs;  as a result are able to offer you two distinct levels of service:

FULL DESIGN SERVICE
A fully comprehensive architctural and/or interior design service complemented by an amazing building team where we are involved in every stage of the design process, from the initial concept to completion; this service is aimed at architectural projects, interior design projects with a construction component, bespoke projects or projects where the input of a professional is gives you better peace of mind. We structure our design process in accordance with the stages recommended by the RIBA Plan of Work as follows:

 

Consultation

A free, no obligation initial consultation.


Preparation of Brief 

Understanding and listening to our clients is something that we believe is fundamental to the success of any project. Invariably, we recommend more than one initial idea, so as to demonstrate the potential of a project.

 

Concept Design

Refining any design can often involve exploring simultaneous ideas with our clients until a definitive concept is agreed upon.

 

Design Development

Presented as a series of line drawings, presentation boards for the interior design component and, upon request, 3D visuals, the chosen concept design can now progress to the following stages of detailed design. Once the design is approved, the client has the option to commission full building and decorating specifications for each room. These are highly desirable documents used to detail the works required by the contractor for quotation purposes and to guide the activities of the contractor during the project itself. A quote is provided based on the scope of works.

 

Detailed Design & Furniture Design

We believe that in designing the finest details, you invariably create the most beautiful of projects. Similarly, the more time we invest at this stage, we can deliver a more professional and accurate project. Bespoke furniture design defines us as a leading practice in teh pursuit of individuality and timeless furnishings. While we will often specify non-bespoke products, there are occasions when creating our own furniture designs are essentials.

 

Tender & Procurement

Away from the creative processes, we are equally passionate about total clarity, transparency and accuracy when tendering our projects. We offer our clients the highest standard of account management, ensuring all of our projects are tendered and controlled precisely.

 

Construction

We can offer our clients the highest standard of site management to suit their requirements.

 

Installation & Final Dressing

We conclude our projects with an installation of all furnishings, dressing each room, styling and ensuring a seamless handover to our clients.

Fees for our Architecture Design services are always charged as a lump sum based on the expected number of hours necessary for the completion of each stage.

INTERIOR DESIGN CONSULTANCY SERVICE
A flat fee design and consultancy service whereby we refine the interior design of a room via a series of moodboards at different pricepoints and provide you with a final "shopping list" for the chosen items, leaving the purchase and implementation to you; this package is designed for  interior design projects, for those who either wish to have a more hands-on approach to the design of their home or those who are a little apprehensive about the idea of hiring a professional. The consultancy design service is a two-step process:

Step 1

A 30 min kick-off phone call with our team or visit to our studio
A questionnaire relating to your needs and wishes, your budget, your inspiration and a scaled plan of the space.

Step 2

We provide layout plans, visuals, curated product suggestions (furniture, furnishings, finishes, fittings, lighting and colour scheme), a shopping list and budget breakdown, style advice and samples where appropriate, all within a two week timescale and with a two week post-design support. For any additional services such as site survey, measuring, home visits or help with purchasing please contact us for a quote.
