One-off Consultations and Workshops

You want to improve your spaces but don't quite know where to start? Or you are some way down the process of building a project but would like to obtain advice on a specific topic? A one-off consultation or a workshop could be a good way to unlock the process.

R2 Draw

Not everyone wants or needs to employ an architect for the full set of services from start to completion. Yet sometimes you may just need a few pointers on a particular problem, help to get started, or a second opinion on something you read about.

If this sounds like something that might be useful to you why not book a one-off consultation or a workshop.

These consultations have proved popular due to the low commitment and focused approach - think of them as coaching to enable you to make your own choices.
