Meeting One

In our first meeting we will come out to your home (for those renovating) or to your project site if available (for those building). Here we’ll document and measure the areas that can be worked with. If you are building a new home we will be working from your Architect’s or Drafter's base floorplan. Your brief is an important starting point. Before we meet you will have already received from us a Full Home Design Brief. In this document we ask you specific questions for each room to find out exactly what you are looking for.  At our first appointment we'll talk through this document along with discussing your budget and also time frame considerations. 

Meeting Two

In our second meeting held at our design studio this is where the fun begins. Between our first meeting and now we will have been busily creating some designs for you. You will be shown 2-3 floor plan layouts which will show you your potential options and the possibilities of what direction we can head in. Sometimes clients fall in love with one particular design straight away. Other times they may like elements out of one or two of them so collaboratively we’ll work towards getting a final design that meets your requirements. Once a design is finalised  you will then receive an A3 copy of a floor plan, elevations and any relevant detail drawings at your next meeting. 
*Should your project require council, building or development approval a price for additional drawings and application fees will be given, all dependent on the complexity of the project. This will be discussed with you at the time required before submitting applications. If you are renovating we work with a local Building Designer who can offer this service to you in collaboration with Birdblack Design. If you are building a new home this will be covered by your Architect/Drafter.

Meeting Three

Now that we’ve finalised the floorplan of your home it’s time for us to start adding in the detail. Between our last meeting and now we will have drawn up all of your internal room elevations. This meeting gives us time to go through each room and see your home come to life. We’ve now designed all of the custom joinery, you’ll see exactly where each pair of shoes in your robe, cutlery trays in your kitchen and towels in your bathroom are going to be located. This will give you a greater understanding as to the overall design we’re heading towards. The meeting is held at our design studio.

Meeting Four

Selection and specification of all fittings, fixtures and finishes as required. Here you'll be choosing all of the materials that will make your project one of a kind. They will include items such as the benchtop material, joinery finishes, sinks, tapware, basins, flooring etc. Depending on your budget for the project our fourth meeting will either be spent as a full day in the Illawarra or a full day in Sydney travelling to selected showrooms to choose your fittings, fixtures and finishes. You will be required to meet your designer at the specified showrooms, they will guide you throughout the excursion.

Option One‍
Full day excursion to showrooms within the Illawarra, selected by
BIRDBLACK DESIGN.
Option Two‍
Full day excursion to showrooms in Sydney, selected by BIRDBLACK DESIGN.

Meeting Five

In our previous meeting we will have now selected all of the interior fittings and finishes. We now have a sound grasp on the overall look, style and colour scheme that will flow throughout your home. At this stage of the process Birdblack Design will now put together a selection of feature lighting for you to choose from. We prefer to leave the feature lighting to this point rather than incorporating it into our last meeting. The reason is so that we can take our time searching for the perfect statement pieces from our exclusive suppliers, making sure each item will pair beautifully with what we’ve already selected. At this time we will also look at the electrical /lighting plan which shows the location of all light fittings, light switches and powerpoints.​
Along with light fittings we’ll also reveal to you the external finishes options. We’ll show you between 1-2 options which will indicate our suggestions for your external finishes (roof, gutters, cladding, decking, window & doors frames etc). We put together our schemes based on creating a flow-on effect from the finishes we’ve selecting for the interior. We believe that a home should look like a partnership between the interior and exterior.​ This meeting is held at our design studio.

Before our next meeting your drawings will now be updated to include your fittings and fixtures selections. This is the largest section of work that Birdblack Design has to do. We spend the next period of time making sure that all of your fittings work within the design when drawn to scale. This part of the process is critical in ensuring that tiles, joinery finishes, benchtops etc are all notated in their correct locations.

If you would like to proceed with design management, BIRDBLACK DESIGN will arrange to meet with our selected builder at the deemed project site to obtain a labour quote. BIRDBLACK DESIGN works only with qualified and reputable trades people. If you don’t already have your own builder selected we will obtain a quote for the labour component of your project. If Birdlback Design is the nominated design manager then all bespoke items for your project will be quoted on and prices will be given to you at the next appointment. If you have your own builder all of the details will be passed on for them to quote using their own regular suppliers and tradespeople.

Meeting Six

You will now be presented with a final set of A3 drawings and corresponding selections list. We will discuss the final selections list inclusive of costings and labour prices that have been obtained (if applicable). When we have finalised all design queries and final prices, the project will be ready to proceed. This meeting is held at our design studio.
If you are proceeding with Birdblack Design’s Management Service then final paperwork will be finalised and we will discuss start dates and expected time frames for the completed project. BIRDBLACK DESIGN will work closely with the builder, trades people and suppliers involved throughout the duration of the job as per our design management service.
If you are using your own builder we will send you a dropbox link via email with all of your drawings and inclusions list which you will then pass on to your nominated building company.

This package can be tailored to suit the size of your own home. For example we can adjust the amount of bathrooms included to suit what you actually have.
