What We Do

Full Service

Our eight Design Phases, each with detailed steps within, will ensure you feel grounded, informed and more than a little excited while your dreams evolve into ideas, a rocking design and eventually, a phenomenal home.


  1. Project Initiation
  2. A brief is formed by outlining key objectives, assessing design and construction programs, and setting the intention for the project ahead. This phase includes our Design Session, where we do all the listening – we need (and want!) to understand everything about how you live, and how you want to live. Knowing your personal, family and social rituals ensures that we can design your home to fit you perfectly.

  3. Schematic Design
  4. Schematic design is designer-speak for gathering and refining ideas to develop a unique design concept (scheme) for your home. Crucially, we’ll look at maximising liveability and use of space. We’ll also offer imagery that represents the mood of the creative direction and get into the fun stuff: selecting materials.

  5. Design Development
  6. Here you’ll see the schematic ideas translated into a visual design solution. Basically, sh*t’s getting real. We create a preliminary drawing package that clearly communicates the design intent across joinery, finishes, fittings and lighting. Also known as: where your stuff goes and how good it looks surrounded by practical but sexy house things.

  7. Documentation
  8. Here we resolve exactly how our plans will be built, through detailed drawings and digital 3D models. These become the comprehensive instructions that builders and manufacturers need. Everything’s to code, of course, and sufficient for building permits and certification.

  9. Tender
  10. This is when we find the very best builder to suit your project’s needs. We have the tough conversations on your behalf and analyse prices alongside budget and project objectives. Changes may be made to the design to ensure we’re sticking to the right numbers (or you might reach into the secret stash, if you decide you absolutely have to have that favourite feature!).

  11. Construction on Site
  12. We liaise directly with builders, trades and architects. We’ll solve any issues that might crop up as construction takes place, but we’ll be on site often to keep an eye on developments and to ensure our design is coming up roses.

  13. Selection of FAA
  14. At this point, the finish line is nigh and we’re ready to have some serious fun. The final stage to complete your project involves selecting project-specific items and organising custom-made beautiful things. We will, of course, ensure that your existing possessions are carefully integrated with new purchases.

  15. Procurement of FAA
  16. More than just going shopping (although you can be sure we’ll have a great time doing that, too), here we keep everything on track for delivering up your dream home: preparing and accelerating orders, approving finishes, coordinating deliveries, and making sure everything’s where it should be. Plus a final zhoozh, magazine-ready.

And that’s that! Your dream home, made with magic.
