Here is an example of how we might work together, however, we understand that the design process is not linear and we will agree the best approach to your project.


Brief & Concept | Understanding you and your space

Aligns with RIBA stages 0-2


We start the journey by getting to know you and understand your needs, aspirations and how you want to use the space.

We will also explore and agree on aesthetics and design direction. 

What does it mean in practice?


Initial consultation

We will develop a brief to outline and agree the scope and the requirements of the design.


Site survey

This will include a detailed review of the space and improvements required, as well as capturing key measurements and information required for the space.


Initial zoning options

We will work on optimised layouts for your space in line with how you intend to use it. This will drive required work, products sourcing requirements and electrics / lighting requirements.


Mood and concept boards

We will create a mood board which will material the design direction from your brief and develop specific concept boards in line with the mood.

Planning | All about the detail

Aligns with RIBA stages 3-4

At this stage, we will further develop the design.

While planning your space, we will test options to offer you the best layout and flow. We will test furniture & lighting layout.

We will present you with options for furnishing and finishes.

What does it mean in practice?

Technical drawings
As required - plans, elevations, sections covering furniture layout, tiling plans, lighting and small power plans, detailed joinery drawings.


3D visuals of your space
As required, testing and visualising the space.

Specification and sourcing

Product and finishes specification and procurement.

Suppliers meetings with you as relevant.

Contractors tendering

Scope of work for contractors and tendering process support as required.

Build | Making it happen

Aligns with RIBA stages 5-6

Turning your plan into a reality.


We can coordinate the project execution aiming to keep your design, budget and schedule on track.

What does it mean in practice?

Deliveries management

Coordinating the delivery of your sourcing list.

On site coordination

Keeping you informed at all stages through briefings and coordination between the contractors and yourselves.

Final site inspection

Snagging on site to ensure works have been undertaken to specifications.



Dressing the space and getting you settled.

Handing over key documentation including, as relevant, certificates and maintenance documentation.
