A valued client in Sussex was very keen to have their expectations managed as best as we could to design a useful outdoor space converting an existing out house into a more welcoming area. The impact of the building was difficult for the client to envisage and so we provided as much visual help as we could before works commenced.
Their main concerns was to be sure the new area would have room to fit all their furniture in, have a good outlook to the garden and still feel like a space worth developing.
This kind of deign work usually takes us around three weeks from initial deposits as there are, effectively, three processes involved. First we make a physical survey of the existing building and share the subsequently produced ‘existing’ drawings with the client. Then we design our proposals in 2D for consideration, usually one of two options, including as many details as previously discussed.
Then the drawings get converted to a 3D version in our CAD applications which can then be completed in a rendering program, below, that includes wall colours, floor materials, light sources etc and an idea of what the building looks out onto.
