q. how does the business model work?
a. there are 3 stages to each project:
stage 1- Concept/Sketch design. After a site measure & existing site photographs, the client receives concept plans for each room.
stage 2- Design Development. the client receives floor plans, preliminary fixtures & fittings schedules, mood boards, finishes samples & elevations for each room.
aspacelikethis provides complimentary 3D renders in this stage of the project. These help the client to realise the new spaces & their potential. Angles/detailed views of ie. shadowlines or fingerpulls can also be picked up on that 2D drawings could never show.
stage 3- Construction Documentation. The client receives a fully documented drawing package to pass on to their builder. These drawings can include proposed floor plans,
