Design At SDinteriors

At SDinteriors we live by Dieter Rams Ten Principles of “Good Design”

Good Design is...

Innovative: The possibilities for innovation are not, by any means, exhausted. Technological development is always offering new opportunities for innovative design. But innovative design always develops in tandem with innovative technology, and can never be an end in itself.

Makes a Product Useful: A product is bought to be used. It has to satisfy certain criteria, not only functional but also psychological and aesthetic. Good design emphasizes the usefulness of a product while disregarding anything that could possibly detract from it.

Aesthetic: The aesthetic quality of a product is integral to its usefulness because products are used every day and have an effect on people and their well-being. Only well-executed objects can be beautiful.

Makes A Product Understandable: It clarifies the product’s structure. Better still, it can make the product clearly express its function by making use of the user’s intuition. At best, it is self-explanatory.

Unobtrusive: Products fulfilling a purpose are like tools. They are neither decorative objects nor works of art. Their design should therefore be both neutral and restrained, to leave room for the user’s self-expression.

Honest: It does not make a product more innovative, powerful or valuable than it really is. It does not attempt to manipulate the consumer with promises that cannot be kept

Long-lasting: It avoids being fashionable and therefore never appears antiquated. Unlike fashionable design, it lasts many years – even in today’s throwaway society.

Thorough Down to the Last Detail: Nothing must be arbitrary or left to chance. Care and accuracy in the design process show respect towards the consumer.

Environmentally Friendly: Design makes an important contribution to the preservation of the environment. It conserves resources and minimises physical and visual pollution throughout the lifecycle of the product.

As Little design as Possible: Less, but better – because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.

We aim to provide our clients with the best possible building design and construction advice for all aspects of property extension, property conversion, and structural alteration. Projects include house extensions, business premises extensions, loft conversions, conservatories, garage conversions, basement conversions, and change-of-use projects, to name but a few.

Our main services include the preparation and submission of architectural plans and construction drawings required by local authorities for both planning permission and building regulations approval. We offer a fast-track, one-stop-shop design service aimed at obtaining all necessary approvals prior to commencement of building works. We deal with all of the paperwork, and liaise with all statutory authorities on your behalf - easing the stress that this may cause.

Building Survey Services

Our building surveyors and structural engineers will provide householders, business premises owners, property portfolio owners, property developers, and builders, with specialist building surveys and structural surveys of all property types, and offer detailed building survey reports and structural survey reports pertaining to the general conditions of these properties, and/or the structural soundness of these properties.

All of our reports contain information of our findings, conclusions, recommendations for repair, and estimates for the costs of any repair. Where structural repairs are recommended, we will provide scheme drawings and structural calculations relating to those works (if instructed), and we will deposit those scheme drawings with your local building control department on your behalf, when necessary.
