q. How does the business model work?
a. There are 3 stages to each project:
Stage 1 - Concept/sketch design. After a site measure and existing site photographs, the client receives concept plans for each room.
Stage 2 - Design development. The client receives floor plans, preliminary fixtures and fittings schedules, mood boards, finishes samples and elevations for each room. As part of this stage, aspacelikethis provides complimentary 3D renders which assist clients to realise their new spaces and their potential. 3D renders also pick up on angles which are not revealed on 2D drawings.
Stage 3 - Construction documentation. The client receives a fully documented drawing package to pass on to their builder.
Project management may also be required at this stage of the project & can be arranged at an hourly rate.
