The people who get the most out of the design process all share this perspective: design is an investment rather than a cost. The reality is that architectural fees, like all professional services, are not cheap (but neither is getting the design wrong; trust us on that one).
Our fees don’t only include design; they also give you access to our years of knowledge building and project management experience, our network of industry trades, and our team’s ability to navigate approvals and solve complex problems. This results in life-enriching design and a streamlined process with lower stress.
But with all that said, we are cost-conscious at every stage of a project. To ensure you can access design and advice within your budget, choose between the following four service tiers.
Get an informed opinion on your ideas, and gain clarity about design direction and budget. You will receive:
- detailed existing drawings
- context & site analysis
- a written return brief outlining the opportunities, risk, budget & timeframe of your project
- proposed plans and 2d & 3d drawings to explain the scheme
- guidance on the consultants & approvals process you will require
- look & feel boards for visual reference
Want to see how ideas from the workshop will come to life? This service is the most cost-effective way to get to the concept stage and gain preliminary costings. This service tier includes a workshop plus one concept design round with floor plans, elevations and simple 3D views to communicate the scheme.
Best suited to clients who want to DIY their renovation, stage it, or want some time to sit on an idea for a while before they jump right in.
