In many situations the completion of an architectural project is deemed to occur when the building is ready to be occupied. Often the site [garden] and interior furnishings are overlooked due to time or budget constraints. If possible, however, a unified flow through of the design intent, produces a more cohesive end result.
Bluepencil has an interior designer who has previously worked in London doing high end apartment fit outs and historic building refurbishments. Since returning to New Zealand she has helped many families to revitalise their living arrangements, be that through a new kitchen or bathroom design, a one room renovation or an entire house refurbishment. Similarly, a well thought through and sympathetic exterior design always enhances the appearance, value and enjoyment of any new or existing building. This typically involves a detailed planting schedule, for which we always recommend the services of a qualified landscape designer. There are, however, many hard landscaping elements, such as pergola, fences, paving and decks, which we can design to enhance and complement the design of any existing or new building.
