A detailed brief will be prepared and emailed to you after the meeting along with a written itemised estimate for the design fee.

If you decide to proceed to a full design, I request a deposit of $500 + GST to confirm your intention to proceed.
Stage 2: Design Concept
This is the preliminary stage of the design. I carry out a site evaluation based on plans provided. I add anything not shown on these plans and photograph the site, noting any potential views (good or bad) The street scape, identify existing trees to remain. I then prepare a design concept based on the brief, in colour at 1:100 scale. It will include a style guide indicating materials and colours. We will have a meeting in my studio to discuss the concept. Payment is required for this first stage of your design when you collect it. 3D visuals are available at an extra cost
