Our design process begins with one of our experienced designers visiting you at home. By talking to you, absorbing your surroundings and taking inspiration from the architecture of your house and the way you live, our designer will be able to explore the most suitable ideas. They’ll then work with you to devise a design concept that meets all the criteria.
A design is then created to provide a complete impression of your new building, its volume, scale and above all its appropriateness to your home and setting. Although we produce our own designs, we can also work with architectural drawings or artist’s impressions provided by the client.
The design process will naturally give consideration to local authority requirements, with planning and listed building requirements taken into account. Often there will be revisions to a scheme during the design process, which may result in revised drawings.
There are usually two or three design visits before a signed-off design is completed. To help you make a decision, we provide you with one or more concept sketches, 2D computer drawings, watercolours or 3D models. Once a design is agreed on, we hope you will place the order.
We supply various different options to help you visualise your new extension. Below are examples of a water colour which gives a pleasing impression, Two examples of 3D photo realistic presentations and a CAD drawing which gives a more precise technical rendition.
