An interior designer will incorporate your unique vision, requirements, and the flow and layout of the home, by employing textures, specific colours, light fittings and other materials to create a stunning home that complements, and enhances your individual style. Interior designers are connoisseurs in their field, highly skilled in colour selection, various textures and materials, with the ultimate goal of making a particular living space look great, but function perfectly as well. They also have access to a whole host of suppliers and products not necessarily available direct to the public.

By fusing their knowledge of architecture and interiors our team has developed a broad interiors portfolio that include single and multi-residential, restaurants and cafes, McDonalds restaurants cinemas, shopping centre, and boutique retailers. Our service is dedicated to offering the full service to clients by incorporating interior design, graphic design, brand development, documentation and implementation.

Our Interior Designers have also won many awards including best Functional Kitchen and Bathroom designs and for their talent in combining materials, textures and colours.

Engaging your designer

You should engage your designer based on their experience, education, portfolio and references. At Aspect each member of our team has Architectural and Design qualifications from acredited tertiary education institutions in Australia. They are trained to deliver design creativity and professional services.

Fees are naturally a consideration when selecting a designer but choosing one purely on price may not end up as appealing or commercially sound as it may initially seem.

You need to choose a designer that you can relate to and one you think will do the best job at fulfilling your requirements at every step of the design and building process.

You should also ensure that you are comparing the scope of works covered for the quoted fees.
Our Fee Proposal will outline step by step what the scope of works is for any service and the fees which apply to each of the following:

Schematic Design (concept)
Design Development
Development Application Documentation and Initial estimates
Basic Interior Design
Construction Certificate Documentation
Detailed Contract Documents and Finishes/Inclusions Schedules
Contract Administration
Advanced Interior Design
Supply of Goods and Materials
Any other fees

The design process

Before you embark on th eprocess of designing and building we will need to have an initial meeting to establish which services will be required to ensure that your project is a success and so that we can confirm which is the most cost effective way of carrying out these services.

We also need to establish if your budget aligns with your expectations.

Once you have selected Aspect as your designer, we will develop a “brief” together. The Design Brief is a document which is used as a starting point in designing your home or building and is refined with our professional expertise to act as a guide throughout the design process. The Brief should contain all the fundamental requirements.

You should collect any images, plans and other items which which will act as a visual prompt during the process and which will give a general feel for your desired outcome. You will need to supply any data relevant to your site such as surveys, covenants and restrictions of use according to the title of the land.

It is vital that your wishes are understood as clearly as possible right from the beginning. The Brief does not have to be a lengthy document but detailed enough to ensure we are adequately armed with information such as spatial requirements and relationships by briefly describing each area.

We will present you with initial “design sketches” as concepts and with your feedback develop these into “design drawings” and then documents for development approval and initial estimates for construction.

Upon your approval of the preliminary price, design drawings and preliminary finishes we will prepare the documentation for Development Application. Please note that all efforts are made and avenues explored to ensure that your application is approved.
While the approval process is in progress we will get Builders’ prices for construction, the final selections will then be made with our Interior Designers and all documentation will be updated accordingly and the “construction drawings” will be completed in 2 stages:

basic construction certificate drawings and then
details of services, elctricals, kitchens, cabinetry etc.

If we are getting Tender prices for your building then we will have the estimates updated to form a “Fixed Price” Tender.

Why elect to have a full design and documentation service?

A Full service gives the Builders and YOU more detail on the design and ensures that unknowns and any mistakes are kept to a minimum. With this service we not only give the basic Council Documentation for obtaining a Development Approval or Construction Certificate but we work with you in documenting your material selections, detailing kitchens and cabinetry, electrical layouts, services layout, window schedules, tiling layouts, slab setout dimensions and penetrations etc. With these documents the Builder is fully armed to construct your home with minimal referral back to you or the design office which saves you time and money.
