What Sets Us Apart

We are proud of our ability to maximise the full potential of any property through creative space planning and in-house visualisation. Our team of master craftsmen are on hand to design many bespoke elements of your interior to ensure that perfect fit and unique style. We also have an incredible team of reliable and considerate tradesmen who ensure excellence even with the elements you cannot see.

We adapt to not only enhance the client’s lifestyle and tastes but to that of the properties architectural influence and surroundings. Every detail is considered from the visual flow and journey through a space to the combination of textures and range of colours throughout. We even choose the scents to suit the rooms in question.

Architects

Our team of designers have a focus on conceptual and interiors-led architecture which enables them to collaborate successfully with architects to create exceptional, lifestyle-driven properties. Occasionally we are asked to offer our creative flair to enhance the form of a building even prior to any architect’s involvement.  We will work with a wide array of projects from concept architecture for empty plots to enhancements and facelifts, as well as extensions or conversions. After providing CGI’s of the architectural potential, together with the AutoCAD elevations we then instruct an architect to complete the planning process and construction drawings.  The external envelope of a building as well as the interior architecture, trim, millwork and ceiling finishes have traditionally been the exclusive domain of the architect.  However, we believe that the exterior form of a building cannot be separated from the internal design, and that both should work symbiotically to create beautiful living spaces.  With that in mind, we work from the premise that the complementary skills of architects and designers are inextricably intertwined.

At Design by UBER our designers work from the inside out to design spaces that enhance lifestyles.  To that end our technically proficient team will work with functional architectural plans and enhance them to the point where they allow a client to visualise and understand how they will be able to interact with the spaces.  We issue our space plans, layouts and co-ordination drawings to the architect with whom we liase to ensure that none of the structures or services are compromised, thus avoiding any abortive work being undertaken.

Experience shows us that collaboration at the early stages is not only desirable but essential to establish concepts and define goals.  An understanding of how the space will be experienced as a whole needs to be established early in the process to ensure that functional considerations are fully deliberated.  We maintain a close relationship with the architect throughout a project, and, with our specialist knowledge of ergonomics, materials and finishes we support the architect’s role by offering comment on the materials palette and how it is deployed, as well as suggesting elements that will add to the merit of the property.  This open exchange of ideas ensures the smooth running, timely and cost-sensitive completion of projects that fulfil client expectations both in terms of the look and feel and the lifestyle they deliver.

Quantity Surveyor

The primary role of a quantity surveyor is to focus on delivering a project within a budget.  Our skilled and experienced team add value to a QS’s role by rationalising the budget and providing cost certainty for the client.  We help to value engineer a project by ensuring that the correct product is specified for the appropriate area at the right price.

We provide a full schedule of information for the property and, once the design has been agreed by the client, we will work with the quantity surveyor to ensure optimum product specification.  This collaborative approach reduces the likelihood of variations hence minimising client risk.

Property Developer & Builder

Our team work with property developers and builders to provide a lifestyle that is affordable for them to deliver.  We will develop their initial plans in such a way that offers a better lifestyle and experience for the end user, ultimately delivering premium homes which are head and shoulders above those of their competitors and all with highly commercial focus to maximise returns.

Surety that we support them in designing on-trend, state of the at homes that are also timeless using design skills that maximise lifestyle benefits for the homeowner whilst ensuring that their properties are specified with the right products at the right price.
