Welcome. I am an architectural and interior designer who specialises in creative spacial design.
I am about creating practical and joyful homes for real people. I believe that homes are to be lived in and I am without doubt that well considered and elegant solutions to the mess and efforts of daily life can add considerable value to our lives. I also believe that homes should work at a level beyond the practical and provide heartwarming spaces that just feel fantastic to be in.
Elevated from the ordinary
I am always interested how I can elevate your renovation from the ordinary by creative design touches that add to either the functionality and/or beauty of your home. It is the careful consideration of these elements that can add significant value to a house over and above square footage. I believe that if you are going to renovate then it is worth renovating with creativity and consideration.
Inside out design
I design from the inside out. I consider how the home will actually be used by those who live in it and how it will need to adapt and change over the years. With this in mind I always design rooms fully furnished to show how each space will be used. I consider micro details such as where keys and bags will be placed on arrival. I think about how your children will need a playroom now but in a few years will be needing privacy and a place to entertain.
Many solutions to choose from
In my creative design work I will uncover a variety of solutions to the brief. I believe that it is not my decision – but my client’s as to which is best suited for their lives and preferences. Then my clients can then make a choice borne out of options and exploration rather than a single solution.
Unlocking potential that is buried deep
I love designing solutions for challenging houses with unconventional layouts. Perhaps the house has been extended before? Perhaps it poses very specific issues. With time, care and attention, even seemingly impossible cases always develop into pleasing solutions.
Powered by a lifetime love of designing space
I have been designing space since the age of 8. I was captivated and excited by floorplans and would spend hours drawing my own. I still feel that sense of excitement and passion every time I receive a new brief. I work from this love of design – solving each brief as if it were a puzzle.
She spent time with us and at the house before producing 3 different concepts. It was hard to choose one as they were all brilliant! But on Emma’s advice, we had the plans valued by an estate agent and were pleasantly surprised at the value we would add to the house. This helped make our final decision. We are now in the process of getting planning permission – which has all been made very simple due to Emma’s planning expert. We are excited and can’t wait to get started.
I would absolutely recommend Emma to my friends and family. She has managed to use the space creatively, turning what was a very random layout into a well thought out, liveable space. Thank You Emma!
I am sure that I will have more work to complete in the future and will definitely come back to you for further help. John Lewin
It has been a great pleasure working with you. You have listened carefully to me and worked with me in a quiet and methodical way that left me feeling that I was the designer although I know in truth that it was you that provided the spacial solutions in what is a relatively small house.
Your enthusiasm has been infectious. You kept your promise to deliver on time and you kept your promise to keep revising the drawings until I was satisfied that they reflected what I wanted. I will be very happy to recommend you to others in a similar position to myself. Jane
