At Birdblack Design, we take you from concepts to completion.
In our first meeting, we will come out to your home. Our first port of call is to determine whether this is a REFRESH (no structural, plumbing or electrical changes) or a REDESIGN (a full Interior Design makeover).
At your home or project site, we’ll document and measure the areas that can be worked with. If you are building a new home, we will meet over coffee at our Interior Design Studio. Before we meet, you will receive our Birdblack Design Discovery in which we ask you specific questions for each room to find out exactly what you are looking for. This an important starting point, and at our first appointment, we’ll talk through this document along with discussing your costing estimation and time frame considerations.
Our second meeting (held at our Interior Design Studio), is where the fun begins! Between our first meeting and second meetings, we will have been busily creating designs for you. You will be shown 2-3 floorplan layouts which will indicate your potential options and the possibilities of which direction we can head in. Sometimes clients fall in love with one particular design straight away. Other times they may like certain elements from multiple designs. Collaboratively, we will work towards getting a final design that meets your individual requirements. Once an Interior Design is finalised, it will be drawn to scale using CAD. You will receive an A3 copy of the floorplan, lighting plan, elevations and any relevant detail drawings at your next meeting.
*Should your project require council, building or development approval a price for additional drawings and application fees will be given, all dependent on the complexity of the project. This will be discussed with you at the time required before submitting applications.
This meeting will include the selection and specification of all fittings, fixtures and finishes as required. Here you will be choosing all the materials that make your project one of a kind. This will include items such as the benchtop material, joinery finish, basins, tiles, tapware, lighting etc. You will be required to meet your designers at our Interior Design Studio and Designer Showroom and they will guide you throughout the selection process.
Our interior Designer Showroom is a highly curated showroom. We have scoured the globe for this selection of products which are unique, high quality, and luxurious. Our curated products are not easily located at your run-of-the-mill commercial outlets, meaning that your home will truly be a one-of-a-kind unique space.
*Note: If you are proceeding with multiple Interior Design Packages, we will make all of your selections for ALL rooms within the same presentation. This allows us to create a harmonious feel throughout your home. Depending on the number of packages, we can allow up to one full day for this selection process.
Before our next meeting, your drawings will be updated to include your fittings and fixtures selections. This is the largest section of work that Birdblack Design has to do. We spend the next period of time ensuring all your fittings work within the design when drawn to scale. This part of the process is critical in ensuring that tiles, joinery finishes, benchtops etc are all notated in their correct locations.
Birdblack Design will arrange to meet with our selected builder at the deemed project site to obtain a labour quote. Birdblack Design works only with qualified and reputable trades people. All bespoke items for your project will be quoted and prices will be given to you at the next appointment.
In our fourth meeting (held at our Interior Design Studio), you will be presented with the final set of A3 drawings and corresponding selections list. We will discuss the final selections list inclusive of costings and labour prices that have been obtained. When we have finalised all design queries and final prices, the project will be ready to proceed.
Final paperwork will be finalised and we will discuss start dates and expected time frames for the completed project. Birdblack Design will work closely with our construction team: our builder, trades people and suppliers involved throughout the duration of the job, as per our Design Management Service.
We can offer you a 3D Rendered view of your Master Ensuite from $400.
Once we have developed your final design and material selections, we can offer you a 3D rendered image of your space. This will give you a sneak peek of what the final result is going to look like. A perfect visual option for those who struggle to read floorplans and elevations.
