Design & Space Planning

Office Design Process

When we start a new office design project, we don’t just see an empty space – we see opportunities. We visualise things. That’s how we create.

But it’s not all about our ideas. When it comes to your office design, we want to hear what you have to say. Tell us everything: all of your aspirations, all of your pain points. We’ll work with you to outline the requirements of your space and use those parameters as a template to build on.

We take your ideas and blend those with our experience and knowledge to create truly inspirational workspaces that will inspire and motivate your employees, benefitting well-being and productivity.

Our team of office designers are no strangers to unique layouts and new concepts. This includes post-COVID hybrid working layouts. So whatever you want adding to your space to keep it relevant – be it agile, collaborative working areas or co-working spaces – you can trust us to meet your vision.

Concept Design

The starting point for our office designers is to create a design concept. We like to use your branding colours as our inspiration to bring your current personality into the new design. We will then share our thoughts with you using electronic mood boards and concept boards. This helps our team clearly express our thoughts and vision for the office plans.

Using these boards, we talk with you – not at you – to pinpoint a final concept design that we’re both excited by. And by this point, everything is starting to take shape.

Space Planning

Now comes the fun bit. Once we’ve agreed on the design and taken the site measurements, we will bring your office design to life with, initially, two-dimensional office space plans. This is a great way to show you the bare bones of the idea, so everyone can see that we’re on the right track.

Three-Dimensional Rendered Visual Images

Next, we go into a bit more detail. A lot more detail, in fact.

To help you truly visualise how your new office design will look, we’ll model the space in three dimensions using computer-aided design software. Using different angles in the model, we’ll produce rendered visual images so you can take a full-colour, deep-dive into your future office space.

Once we all have a clear picture in our minds, we can get started on creating your dream office space in real life.
