Options & concept development
We help you to see the potential and possibilities
We work with you, often even before architects are involved, to help you understand what you want from your space, and how best to achieve this, whether by build, rebuild, redesign or refresh. We present you, quickly, with some options for you to act upon.
We take care of all the details of the design
We work up the design from concept to a fully developed design. We specify the floorplans, lighting and electrical, joinery, colours, fixtures and fittings, and furniture and furnishings.
Documentation & trades liaison
We take the headaches away
We document the design to ensure that builders and trades know exactly what they need to do. We use our unparalleled connections to source, brief and liaise with almost any artisanal trade, from joiners and lighting designers, to wall and floor specialists, to creators of bespoke furnishings, furniture, wallpapers and objects.
Sourcing & purchasing
We source the best for you to ensure that you do not spend money unnecessarily
Using our unique contacts with hard-to-find suppliers, we negotiate on your behalf to get the best furniture, decorative objects, art works and fixtures and fittings.
Commissioning & custom design
We work with the most interesting and well-respected craftspeople
We design joinery and items specifically for a project to ensure that they best meet our client’s needs. We use our unparalleled connections to source, brief and liaise with almost any artisanal trade, from joiners and lighting designers, to wall and floor specialists, to creators of bespoke furnishings, furniture, wallpapers and objects.
Styling & finalisation
We make everything look amazing
Once a project is completed and everything is delivered, we style the space so it looks amazing, arranging books, objects and artworks to maximum effect.
