Start by compiling a brief. This will help to clarify in your own mind your desired outcomes. Make it as comprehensive as possible being sure to include all of your wants and needs. If you have a budget in mind include that too. Search for images that inspire you, make descriptions of your lifestyle, specify any particular furnishings that may need special consideration and anything else that will help convey to us the vision that's inside your head. The brief often evolves as the project comes to life which usually means the project is even more exciting than you dared to imagine.
Not much is free in this world anymore, but to come and talk to us it is! We can talk through our process, our services and potential costs, and answer any questions about your project. It's also a great way to find out if we're the sort of people you'd like to work with. If you prefer, we can come to you at your home or on site, although there may be a nominal charge to cover some of our travel & time costs.
Yes, we are often engaged for an interior design project only, and we would be happy to talk to you about any services we might be able to help with.
At Space Architecture Studio, good design is our focus. We bring a wealth of experience, passion and creativity to your project. If you already have a design and just need someone to document that for consenting purposes, we're not the partner for your project. However, if you'd like to discuss the project and develop it into everything it possibly can be we'd love to talk.
Location is not a problem for us. We're happy to come to you, especially if you live in Hawaii, however we're also well versed at maintaining good communication using skype and online updates while designing your project. We then like to hand pick local colleagues to assist with overseeing the project during the construction process. You'll barely notice that we're not just down the road. We have successfully undertaken projects from the middle of the South Island to the upper North Island. We're very keen to expand our horizons!
If you haven't already purchased a site or existing dwelling we may be able to offer invaluable advice to help settle on the most appropriate for your needs. There are a number of factors to consider to ensure the best possible outcome for your requirements. For example we can assist with the following: Identifying some of the site aspects and constraints - the local council requirements, site access issues, orientation, easements and legal boundaries, ground conditions, location of available services. All of these influence the potential of a site and it can be well worth the small investment to have us assist in assessing the potential site or existing home.
