Why work with us?

We love helping our clients achieve their dream home in and around the New Forest National Park. Our team promises to provide your project with considered advice, fresh ideas, and a stunning final result. Over the years, we have successfully achieved planning permission within the New Forest National Park on numerous projects, which have included extensions, new-build homes, and the full renovation of existing properties. Together, we work with our clients to ensure that the building we hand over to them, is beautiful and enjoyable to spend time in.

As both an architectural and interior design studio, we help our clients through the entire journey of their project, from start to finish. Here are three quick insights in to what we can bring to your project:

We get to know you

There is nothing we love more than hearing our clients’ aspirations and design ideas. We are here to both listen and understand your dreams. We get to know you too, so that we can add in those little details and special design ideas, that enable us to offer you a bespoke design service.

Minimising the risks

We have a wealth of experience in building new homes, extending existing buildings, converting existing barns and with the renovation of Grade II Listed homes within the New Forest National Park. Knowing the possibilities and the constraints of what can be achieved within the area, allows us to mitigate any issues before they arise. We will always keep you fully informed, whether that is during the planning process, on conversations held with the Local Planning Authority, during the construction process and with the management of teams on site, or during those final inspections once your project in nearing completion.

We love what we do

Working with you to create a home that changes how you find comfort, joy and peace in your everyday space, is what inspires our passion for architecture and interior design. At the centre of every project are our clients and our understanding of how you live. This enables us to provide you with a home that you love.

Tell Us About Your Project

No matter how large or small your project is, we believe that creative and considered architecture and interior design can make a positive difference to the way we live.

New Forest Manor

“We have been working with INKSPACE for the past 4 years on two projects in the New Forest National Park. They have been instrumental in gaining us Listed Building Consent for the refurbishment of our home, and for gaining Planning Permission for our new build pool house.

They are always on hand to answer any queries and every member of the team is friendly, knowledgeable and easy to work with. As we approach the completion of our projects, we would not hesitate to recommend them to others looking for an Architect, especially for those in need of specific knowledge on Listed Buildings, Conservation Areas and for building within the National Park”.
