Working with an interior designer is a creative, collaborative process; and a strong working relationship between client and designer is essential. Always interested in meeting new people, the studio adopts a structured approach to taking on new clients. The following three stages give clients complete oversight of the process and an upfront understanding of fees from start to finish.
A brief, two-hour meeting intended as an opportunity for the studio to meet a prospective client, establish a rapport and set out a few initial ideas. No fee; no commitment.
An in-depth, creative response in which the studio presents full design concepts in line with the following:
Strategic Definition – the studio collaborates with the client to create a strategic brief.
Preparation & Budget – the studio visits the property, arranges a site survey, carries out a feasibility study and establishes a project budget.
