‘I’m quite naive around planning and design but do have a clear idea about what I do and don’t like. I also find it difficult to visualise space and know how to maximise it with roof height and windows. When it came to our proposed loft conversion I wanted to see plans that demonstrated clearly how we could use the space and the different options available to me. What was great about Dark Skies Design was we were able to communicate over email, make a number of iterations after I’d seen the 3D models and was able to visualise much clearer. I now have plans and a design I’m 100% happy with and am keeping my fingers crossed that planning permission is granted. Dark Skies Design have supported me with the planning application and all the paperwork. The 3D visuals I had been emailed I have been able to show my neighbours so that they can clearly see what the proposed loft conversion will look like, where the windows are so that I could discuss the proposals with them before we finalised the planning application. A great service from start to finish.’
‘Looking to move 70 miles away, we had found the perfect plot but the house, whilst having some charm on the outside, was awful on the inside. The downstairs had only 2 decently sized rooms; upstairs had 2 good bedrooms, 2 box rooms and a bathroom that made you yearn for the comforts of an outside loo. All the utilities were shot and the back of the house faced the 50 metre long hedge instead of down the 50 metre long garden. We had seen the transformation Paul and Suzy had made on their Chapel and approached them in hope, asking them if they wanted a challenge in their lives. Thankfully, they accepted. The lop-sided front elevation of the house was transformed by putting symmetry back into the design, a sizeable porch was added to break up the “slab” of the revised frontage, all the utilities were re-laid and a sizeable kitchen diner was added at the back, angled to look straight down the garden.
