We are a Chartered Architects Practice and provide services across Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Bournemouth and Poole, the New Forest National Park and further afield to Devon and Cornwall.

As a team, we have over 30 years experience working across the residential and commercial sectors. INKSPACE was founded by Lauren Kibble in 2017 out of a passion to create exceptional and sustainable homes across the South Coast.

Lauren now employs a small team of Architects and Interior Designers that share her passion for extraordinary buildings that enhance the lives of those who live and work in them. Everyone at INKSPACE works hard to deliver beautiful buildings that exceed the expectations of clients, whilst at the same time ensuring that sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

We are a client-led practice and work with you every step of the way to provide you with the finished project that you dreamt of at the outset. We have years of experience working with specialist consultants, who can also assist with advice for structural information, ecological surveys, heritage and conservation projects and many other disciplines.

Working together, we provide each of our bespoke projects with everything they need to guide them through the design process, the planning system, the construction information stage and then through to the building work on site.

The Team

Each member of our team has a variety of experience and together we have worked across all architectural sectors, including residential, education and within high-end commercial projects. Throughout the years, we have completed both large and small, ambitious projects and have gained valuable experience at each stage of the design and build process. What each project has in common however, is a client who has specific needs, an individual brief, and a desire to create spaces that are special. This has taught us to listen carefully and work closely with our clients to achieve their goals.

Choosing your Architect is not simply about their credentials however, they must be a good fit for you and your project. For most of our clients, their building project is the biggest investment they will ever make and, therefore, you will want to make sure that you have the right team around you. If you think we may be the right Architects for you, then please ‘Get in Touch’.
