How we work

We offer a bespoke, full architecture and interior design service. We work from concept sketches through to building regulations, technical drawings, the specification of the finer details and overseeing your project on site to completion.

Our team promises to provide your project with considered advice, fresh ideas and a stunning final result. We work regularly with a range of professional consultants, who provide invaluable advice from a variety of disciplines.

Together, we strive to work with our clients to ensure that the building we hand over to them is beautiful and enjoyable to spend time in. At INKSPACE we understand that the building process can often be daunting and therefore, we are committed to providing a simple, enjoyable and personal service, with a supportive hand, every step of the way. We offer advice and guidance at all stages of the design process, working with you to create your unique home.

IconFeasibility & Planning

We can help you to understand what you might be able to build within the boundaries of planning regulations. At the outset of your project, we will advise how best to explore your design options inline with what the Local Authority may grant approval for.

IconConcept Design

We work with you and your brief to prepare initial concept/sketch schemes. These sketch drawings will explore your wish list and put into practice our ideas for how we might design your home.

IconPlanning Applications

We work closely and have established relationships with the Local Planning Authorities along the South Coast. Once we have submitted a planning application on your behalf, we feel it is vital that we continue a dialogue with the Council to try and agree a positive outcome. Whilst we can never guarantee approval, we will always offer clear advice on planning and are happy to answer as many questions as you may have along the way.

IconBuilding Regulations

We can provide you with drawings to satisfy the requirement of Building Regulations. This will ensure your home is built to meet the myriad of safety and environmental (energy efficiency) legislation and standards.

IconConstruction Drawings

We offer a full, detailed drawing and specification pack for your bespoke project. Throughout this stage we work closely with you to ensure all the finer details are considered and covered within our drawings and specification. By completing this before you begin on site, you will have a more comprehensive idea of the final cost of your project for a builder to price.

IconMaterial Specifications

Whether your project is small or large, we can offer advice and guidance for both exterior treatments and interior design. We work with local craftsmen and suppliers to offer a complete and holistic design approach.


Once a builder has been chosen and appointed to start your project, we offer a Contract Administration service. This allows a contract to be drawn up between yourself as the client, and contractor and enables a programme and budget to be set and agreed at the outset. INKSPACE monitors this on a weekly basis and works with both parties to deliver your project.

IconSite Inspections

As part of the Contract Administration service, we carry out site inspections to ensure your home is being built to the correct standards and to your expectations for the design.

“Lauren guided me through the minefield of Listed Building Consent in a professional yet understanding way. It was creative suggestions that achieved solutions beyond my original remit. I would have no hesitation in recommending Inkspace.”
