The process

We explore the ‘why’ over the ‘what’…

A successful project is made up of hundreds of decisions. Some big, some small, but all have an impact on your project. From deciding on the layout of your dream home, to choosing curtain and carpets; at Spatial Future, we do things differently. We do it all! Our fully integrated team of architects, builders and interior designers create a truly bespoke and wrap around service for you and your project. This allows making those decisions fun, easy and informed….from the outset!

Every project starts with an idea. Are you building your dream home, or renovating your current house? Our team of award-winning architects and designers, builders and interior designers take those ideas and turn them into reality!

We offer all prospective clients a free consultation.


People, that’s where it begins – Concept

To us, architecture is all about people. We take time to get to know our clients. To kick things off we undertake a detailed design brief meeting. You will meet your dedicated Design Manager who will follow your project from concept to completion, along with the other professionals who will support them during the design stage. Here we get under the surface of why you’re looking to start a project and we offer advice and support on how we can achieve your hopes, needs and dreams. Here we can talk about your budget and the things that are most important to you. We encourage a two-way dialogue with our clients and love for you to get involved in and excited by the design process.

We will complete a drone survey of your site or existing building and create an interactive 3D model of the space. From here we take all the key elements from our design brief and begin to create your home.


Bringing ideas to life – Design

This is where we really blow the competition away! We create a virtual reality model of your proposed design and set it perfectly within the existing drone scanned site. This fully interactive experience allows our clients to make informed decisions on design, layout and finishes, even at this early stage. We work with you to explore ideas and ensure you have all the support you need to make those important decisions about your future home.

Want to show friends and family the view from your new master bedroom suite, or discuss the layout of your new kitchen with friends? We encourage our clients to take their time in exploring their new home and create a 3D interactive walkthrough that can be accessed and shared from your phone, tablet or computer 24/7.


Designing out the problems – Detailed design

The idea of submitting a planning application can be daunting for many. Not for us! We love them! We completely manage this process for you, dealing with the local planning authority on your behalf and complete all the necessary drawings and documentation for your application.

We’re big believers that every fantastic design we do, must be deliverable, achievable and affordable. Before submitting a planning application we’ll get our Build Team to review the project to ensure we’ve accounted for any potential issues we might find on site. Designing out the problems, before a brick is laid!


Interiors that wow – Spatial Future Interiors

We believe that it’s what goes in a house that helps make it a home. At this stage we introduce our Spatial Future Interiors team. They will help design your dream kitchen, that amazing master en-suite with the walk-in shower, or that extremely practical built-in storage you didn’t even know was there! They will sit down with you and your Design Manager to plan all aspects of those key rooms in your house. These will be transported into your virtual model, alongside viewing physical samples of worktops and materials so you get a fully immersive design experience.


Perfect planning – Technical design

Once planning is approved, we produce detailed technical drawings and specifications that will be used to build your project. Not sure about underfloor heating or how you’d like your lighting scheme to work? No problem! Your dedicated Design Manager will introduce our plumbing and electrical experts who will guide you through all the most up to date fixtures, fittings and technology. Helping you to make the right choices for you. All the while we will be keeping a close eye on your budget, to make sure you know exactly where you are.


Let’s get building! – Pre-construction

Your project is now ready to become reality! Your dedicated Design Manager will introduce our Build Team and the Construction Project Manager from our Spatial Future Homes team. They will be responsible for the day-to-day aspects of your build. Here we will finalise your build estimate, discuss your construction contract with us and agree a start date for your project. We hold a pre-start meeting to review the existing site, answer any of your questions about the build and even introduce ourselves to the neighbours! We will issue a detailed project schedule, detailing what work we will be doing each week and discuss any key points in the build with you. We aim to be as flexible as possible and work with our clients to minimise disruption during the build. 

While planning is concerned about how things look, Building Regulations are interested in how they are built. We completely take care of your Building Regulation requirements for your project, managing the inspectors site visits and any certifications that are required. Taking care of the whole process for you.


On the tools – Construction

During your build you will receive regular updates from your Construction Project Manager. We are completely transparent about all aspects of our work and encourage clients to ask questions and feel involved in the build process. We’ll discuss what work we’ve done to date and what work will be coming up. Keeping you informed and up to date with all aspects of the build. Your Design Manager will also be on hand to inspect work on site, making sure our dream design is being delivered and helping you make any final decisions on finishes.


Your perfect home, delivered – Post construction

We don’t believe in goodbyes! Once your project is completed, we will keep in touch and make visits back to your property to check for any snagging work that may be required. Your Design Manager will ensure that all requirements for Building Control have been met and signed off and that you are completely satisfied with your new home.
