We work closely with you to formulate a design brief and begin our due diligence, carefully considering all the factors that are important to you and the environment.
We identify council and local authority controls that may impact your build. We visit your site to assess multiple factors affecting both the design and performance of your home. This takes approximately one week, slightly longer with complex projects.
We begin the design sketch process, then meet with you to present your first concept and explain the unique features of your home. You take a copy of your concept plan home to review, and only at this point will you receive an invoice for the concept and feasibility fee, generally between $1,700 and $2,500. This initial concept design process takes between three and five weeks.
Following up with a series of feedback meetings, we work with you to refine your concept and prepare your revised plan ready for costing. This takes between one and two weeks.
Prior to costing, we will build a furnished 3D model to wander through, giving you the comfort of virtually living in your home.
