Needs and Options Report

When considering a new home or renovation, our Needs and Options Report with Dion Seminara is the perfect service for clients who a want to walk away with professional thoughts and understandings about their project. Our Needs and Options Report has been created to provide clients who engage with our Design Advice service with a written brief development, bubble chart and mood board.

Just like a surgeon will not operate without a proper diagnosis, our initial Needs and Options Report will lead you to the most effective course of action. This report is precisely designed to allow us to understand your goals, and to provide you with a powerful springboard for your project. The point of this report is so that your registered design architect such as us, can effectively design to match your lifestyle needs and wants. This report will uncover for you the what, where and why for your proposed alterations, additions and external works project.

The Needs and Options Report will include a written Brief Development providing you the key findings and discussions presented during your initial Design Advice consultation. The report will also include a Bubble Chart providing you with a visual understanding of relationships between both exterior and interior spaces of your new home or renovation. This Bubble Chart will highlight important considerations before commencing the formal design of your project. The report will also include a mood board providing you inspirational images of home designs that can be taken into account when designing your project. Please note no design concept will be supplied with the written report. It is a stepping stone towards engagement of our Masterplan Concept Package.

01

Why This Service?

Just like a surgeon wouldn’t operate without a proper diagnosis, as your architect I will not design without assessing your needs and options and getting the client’s agreement. The Needs and Options Report is perfect for those who are not wanting to make any full commitments to design decisions and would rather focus on the beginning phases of gaining beneficial design direction for their project to ponder over.

02

Who Does This Suit?

This service is for anyone looking to make the first step in gaining obtainable professional insights and advice about their prospective design project. Ideally this package is perfect for people who are looking to make future developments to their project and wanting to make a short investment rather than a long term one.

Masterplan Concept Design

Our Masterplan Concept Design Service is our most commonly selected design service for our Post Design Advice Service options chosen by clients as it provides insight into lifestyle enhancing benefits of a proposed concept design and provides a clear map of the clients proposed design concepts. This service has been created to provide clarity for our clients who initially only require a concept drawing and costings for future planning and to allow them to make clearer choices in regard to the direction of their project.

In this service our architects will put pen to paper and create your unique architectural concept design in Step 2 Masterplan Concept Design. This will ensure that you have good foundations at the beginning of your architectural journey to the home of your dreams. If you choose to engage in this service immediately then 100% or 50% ( if your remote client booking) will be deducted from ongoing Silver Service costs at the end of your Design Advice.

Beyond this service you have the options of progressing with our Gold, Platinum & Diamond Packages to turn your design into reality.

Measured Drawings (if renovating) will be required in our Masterplan Concept Design Service. A spot level and contour survey of your external grounds will also be required. We will coordinate any required subconsultants for your convenience.

01

Why This Service?

Just like a surgeon would not operate without a diagnosis, it’s vital that you undertake proper research and analysis prior to design. This service provides clarity for clients who require a concept drawing and costings, allowing them to make better choices before progressing with approval or construction documents.

02

Who Does This Suit?

This service suits anyone who is after design concept ideas & solutions in floorplan and 3D external vision format, as well as guidance of how to organise what they need and/or want, and is unsure of what budget is required to execute their project. Alternatively, someone who wants initial planning and costings for future works would also benefit from this service.
