New Year:New Space

Dwell’s initiative to kickstart ten projects to improve ten homes with discounted Design Workshops booked in January 2015

If you’re thinking about embarking on a home improvement project, now is the time to act!  We’re kickstarting ten projects each with £250 discount to celebrate the New Year.  Here’s what we think you’ll need to know – do please ask if you have questions!


  • is a Chartered Architects practice established in 2006 specifically to bring quality design to residential building projects, which are often overlooked.
  • believes that good design pays dividends: it prevents costly mistakes and improves peoples’ quality of life.
  • has tailored traditional architect’s services to suit smaller projects, and specialises in working with homeowners to deliver great projects (see some of our favourite case studies and client testimonials).

What is a Design Workshop?

A total of seven hours of one-to-one consultancy with one of our experienced residential architects.  Each session is tailored to suit your individual requirements to best progress your project, but it will typically include:

  • discussing your needs and getting to know you – key to a successful bespoke project
  • reviewing the house and its facilities and assessing scope for improvement
  • taking measurements and preparing outline base plans of your home
  • preparing sketch proposals outlining different approaches to meeting your needs
  • providing information on permitted development, planning permission and budget cost advice

The precise mix of tasks and the scope of the project will dictate how much time is spent with you at home, and whether we will need to spend some time completing the information back at our studio with the benefit of our library resources and facilities.  We’ll agree this with you and advise on the most appropriate approach.

The purpose of the session is to Define the project brief and generate some Design responses which can be tested against budget cost and planning feasibility factors.  The workshop activities fall within Stage 1 of our four stage process.  Further Development, Documentation and Detail is required to Deliver the project in its built form.  Find out more about our project journey and the D‘s.

What happens afterwards?

We’ll collate our sketches, notes, budget cost plans and any other supporting material produced for you and forward it to you in a report format for you to keep.  You may wish to progress the project as many of our clients do, and we’ll happily talk you through how we can help you do this, but there’s no ongoing obligation on your part if you have a change of heart.

What does it cost?

A total of ten One-Day Workshops are being offered at a discounted rate of £700 inc. VAT each, which represents a substantial £250 reduction from our usual fee of £950 inc. VAT. Claim your coupon to secure the reduced fee.


We come to you at home. We need to get a full understanding of the problems you are facing and the existing spaces to assess opportunities for improvement.  Geographic limits apply to this offer; please check our coverage map below.  We may be able to service clients in other areas by alternative arrangement – please call to discuss if you live further afield.


Claim your coupon before 31 January 2015, and certainly before all ten are claimed!  Book and pay for your session before the end of January (we’ll contact you to arrange a date, and prepare our fee invoice for settlement by cheque or bank transfer before the session).  Workshop dates available until 31 March 2015.  Our usual pricing will prevail from 1 February onwards, or sooner if all coupons are claimed and confirmed before then, so don’t hang around too long!


It’s January.  The sales are on.  The UK has some of the worst housing stock in Europe.  Act now and invest in something that will make a real difference to your quality of life!
