House Designers Need Clients’ Requirements

Kedalla House Planners believe that before putting pen to paper, house designers need to gather detailed information about their client, their lifestyle, requirements, preferences and the site, to develop a design brief. This brief informs design work.

(Developing Your House Design Brief)

We ask our clients,

  • To describe about their current home. Anything they like and dislike about it, What is missing, and what would you change
  • To tell ideas that they have about new design and / or materials
  • To present any images from magazines/internet that show us a style they like,
  • To describe about any particular home design features that are important to them
  • To tell us any perticuler house style that they require for the project e.g.Box Type, Contemporary, Traditional, Single Story, Two story, bold, elegant, minimal etc….
  • To include any specific materials or surfaces in mind that they would like to see in the new home
  • For any time requirements for the project to be completed
  • For special accessibility requirements, for example: anyone in their family disabled or they have any regular visitors that would have special needs
  • Any specific considerations toward sustainability and energy efficiency – Particular system they would like to use: i.e., solar panels etc…
  • Regarding their budget requirements/constraints
  • Any ideas they have about new design and / or materials

"Your working relationship with your house designer is critical. Over-involvement can limit the designer’s ability to deliver the best solutions. Under-involvement can give you a home that doesn’t satisfactorily meet your brief. Make sure you, the client, are comfortable with each stage and check it against your brief before moving on to the next stage".

As well as their lifestyle:

  • Want to understand their lifestyle and the kind of spaces that they need. For example, work from home, entertain often, The kitchen - “ is the heart of the home so we always recommend carefully considering the design of this space. In addition, the family room is an important space to relax and unwind, while the master suite should be viewed as a private parental retreat and designed with your own lifestyle in mind.” etc
  • How much time they spend in the different areas of the home (indoors and outdoors)
  • Entertainment systems they require. Music, TV, projectors, speakers throughout the house?
  • Type of storage they require. Large wardrobe space?

Once you have a shortlist of your requirements, engage with house designer in face-to-face talks about your brief, to ensure you’re on the same page. To get the most value for your money, you want someone who understands you, agrees with your ideas – in relation to sustainable design, space and function – and has the qualifications and enthusiasm to translate ideas to paper and into a reality.

We interpret your requirements into a sketch

Then we provide full working drawing packages for planning and building permit applications,

The work of a building designer usually begins by interpreting your requirements into a sketched floor plan. “It is important clients have time to consider the proposed design options through their day-to-day life. For example, they may be in their current kitchen making dinner with the family and considering how the location in their new house would work at that time,”.

Once agreed upon, the designer then moves on to the drafting and documentation stage, whereby drawings are submitted to council for approval. Some building designers also take care of contract management – that is, hiring builders, managing materials and labour costs, and advising you about any local council by-laws that may concern your project.

We make the planning process quicker, simpler and more equitable than ever before, affording our clients greater access to planning information that is consistent and clear

In all building and planning projects, we collaborate with architects, planners, civil engineers and the client from the earliest phases of a project, providing cutting edge solutions to help realize their imaginative and ambitious aspirations. Building Plan Approvals is one of the key step to complete before constriction begins.

Building Plan Approvals

The Sri Lanka's building code is very strict,

The complex planning code of many local governments can have far reaching impacts on your design solution and must be negotiated. Your designer should have a sound knowledge of these planning code

Building approval is required for developments any building to ensure building complies with building regulations/laws(local authority regulations, planning requirements and conservation restrictions ),including the Building Codes/House Planning Codes of Sri Lanka. Building approval is usually obtained from local authorities (Pradeshiya Shaba, Minicipal Councils, Urban Development Authority) after providing all necessary documents (Ex: Deeds, Survey Plans, Other clearances etc….) to them. Building approval must be sought before construction begins.
