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.
We ask our clients,
"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".
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.

Visit the site with your designer to do a ‘SWOT’ analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats). This is your first opportunity to work with your designer to see if your objectives align. It can take the form of a paid consultation or can be part of the design contract outlined in the next step.

As with all other professional services for home design and renovation, the best way to choose a House Designer in Sri Lanka is to asses their past work against the style and requirements you have for your individual project.
The role of building designers has evolved from traditional drafting services to building design that takes into account your lifestyle, budget and site condition. Building designers in Sri Lanka also often work with contractors to ensure that structural elements are in line with desired aesthetics.
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.
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.
