As a respected architectural design firm, we specialise in the all-important first stage of any project: the initial architectural design. For over two decades, we’ve taken abstract vision and turned it into solid, workable plans that set the foundation for eye-catching new and renewed environments. With precision, experience, and creativity, we take into account everything from site conditions to your individual needs and ambitions.
As your chosen architectural design company, from the inception of your project, we align our expertise with your vision to ensure that our journey together is not only shared but that it reflects your architectural ideas.
OUR INITIAL DESIGN SERVICE
Our architectural initial design service sits at the early stages of bringing your vision to life. It’s here that ideas are mapped out and preliminary sketches turn into tangible, feasible plans. This pivotal phase sets the tone for everything that follows as part of your project.
During this stage, our expert team starts with an in-depth consultation, seeking to understand your needs, desires and the overall objectives of the project. We encourage open dialogue and collaboration, as the best designs are born from a combination of our architectural knowledge and your personal insights.
Based on your brief, our team begins crafting preliminary design sketches, often known as concept designs. These are fluid and flexible, allowing for adjustments and fine-tuning. It’s during this phase that we explore the potential of space, form and proportion, and begin to articulate the visual language of your project.
We incorporate feasibility studies to ensure the project’s viability. We will also start to consider planning permission requirements, ensuring our design aligns with local and national planning policy.

Concept designs form an integral part of the initial design stage as the visual translation of your vision into 3D form, detailing the essential elements of form, function, and flow of your proposed construction. This design product is a combination of initial sketches, preliminary floor plans, simple elevations and 3D models that showcase an overall layout and design intent. It reflects all the primary aspects – such as scale, spatial relationships, and massing – that together outline the character of your future building.
At Base, our concept designs optimise the project’s orientation, views, and environmental considerations. We take into account the movement of sunlight, natural ventilation paths and the nuances of the site to offer designs that are not just aesthetically pleasing but also sustainable and functional.
