exciting project - i am a commercial interior designer, and three years
ago i moved into "the ugly house" and turned it into a very contemporary open plan but still cozy home; knocked down all the walls, added two bathrooms and a guest wc, levelled the ground floor so the entire kitchen/dining/sitting room that leads to the garden feels like one big outdoor space.
before you hire an architect, hire me. i can do plan and technical drawings at a lower rate than an architect, and can be more creative than an architect. concept, ideas and space planning are the most important part of the project - get this in place and then hire the architect - drawings in hand - to complete the technical process and get planning approvals etc. i can recommend several good architects that i have worked with over the years, and have close connections with three very good kitchen companies that i have worked with over the past 12 years. they are all in battersea and they all offer me a good trade discount.
i have designed the interiors and speciality kitchens for a quiche factory, cake factory, pizza factory, and the largest sandwich factory in europe, starting the design and space planning before the steel went in and i project managed all the subcontractors on these Â£25M+ projects through to supplying all the tabletop goods, accessories and artwork.
great work, great fun, but all in the north of england. i now want to work on smaller projects and stay in london - no more M1!
if you are interested, e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
and i can send you some photos of my work and my lovely house.
