We provide custom design solutions for your home — you won’t be finding any cookie-cutter drawings here. Our spaces are uniquely tailored to your needs, supported by our ability to create practical, efficient layouts that have a positive impact on daily living. 

 

We're here to transform your vision into a great design.

We believe in transparency in process and price. It can be challenging to commit to a full scope of services upfront, so we have made it simple — choose how much, or how little you would like us involved; take a look at our design packages, or for some answers to those big questions check out our FAQ.

FAQ

How long does the process take?


This depends on the package and inclusions you choose. As a high-level guide, we usually allow 2-3 weeks for our ‘Explore’ package, and 3-5 weeks for our ‘Experience’ package. Please note we are a small studio; we appreciate your patience during busy periods as there may be longer lead times. If choosing our ‘Immerse’ package, it can be upwards of 6 months to a year before construction can commence — we are more than happy to take you through the variables influencing this timeline.




Why isn’t there a fee for the full scope of services online?


As cliché as it might sound, each project is unique. It’s difficult for us to have a generic fee for projects beyond Concept Design, as factors such as Town Planning and heritage requirements can change the overall scope and complexity. If you would like to discuss taking your project further, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.




I have some specific ideas – are you flexible?


As a custom design studio your requirements are our priority. We communicate openly and directly, to ensure nothing is lost in translation. We have refined our process to ensure we can deliver a great design you’re happy with – we might even surprise you with our solutions!




How do we get started?


At this point we would have spoken on the phone, met through a video call or had some email correspondence to establish we’re on the same wavelength. We set a time for the 'Discover' consultation, then prepare a tailored scope to suit your needs. Once you’ve accepted the agreement and paid the deposit, you will receive a detailed brief to fill out. This is part of a streamlined process to help us have a deeper understanding of your needs, so we can deliver a home that truly reflects your vision.




What about external consultants?


We work with a great team of collaborators to ensure the process flows as smoothly as possible. We can help determine who is needed for your project and when, as well as their associated ballpark costs. Make an enquiry — we would love to help.
