about us

 

who we are

 

ArchiLab 7 is a unique, newly emerging type of architectural practice, that is more in sync with the changing demand patterns of modern clients. We offer a wide range of flexible and affordable pay-as-you-go architectural consultations during any stage of a building project. We believe that a more fulfilled design evolution is achieved via means of enhanced free-flowing communication between a client and an architect. Consultations-only, commissions or a bit of both as long as it promotes better quality design and project management.

 

our design

 

ArchiLab 7 creates modern, elegant, intelligent and sustainable residential buildings and both indoor/outdoor spaces that increase all aspects of living standards. We offer a generation of truly original and fresh architectural ideas. Our inquiring minds and a constant desire for inspiration are fed by in-house led architectural research, various professional seminars and exhibitions.

our services

 

 

Designing and building your dream living space is indeed a complicated and multifaceted process, however it is very structured and made out of simple 12 steps that we have grouped up into 5 stages for simplicity and they are based on RIBA plan of works. Please follow the links below to see the stages of a standard project that will guide you through the typical duties we perform during each step of each stage:

 

  project stages

 

    / initial appraisal

    / concept design

    / planning and other permissions

    / technical design & tender

    / construction & post-construction

 

Every client wants to achieve their vision within the project budget and avoiding unnecessary delays. We can help you to acheive this ultimate goal by leading you through just a few stages or the entire project, you choose. Also you are free to decide whether to use our service on the consultations-only or comission basis.

 

We offer a wide range of bespoke architectural services for the following:

 

  project types

 

    / new build

    / extensions 

    / internal remodelling and renovation

    / outdoor living spaces

    / architectural elements and detailing

    / bespoke furniture design

 

 

our fees

 

 

The cost of a good design is a small part of the total construction cost, and is insignificant in comparison to the maintenance and operating costs of the building over its life time. It is worth investing in the skills of design professionals as early as possible in the process when they can add the most value to the outcome. During the Initial Appraisal stage we can spend time understanding your needs and helping to shape your objectives. Early design team engagement can help establish whether the Strategic Brief is feasible and viable in relation to the business case and possible sites. Both, you and us should clearly understand what you want at the very early stage, as it may prevent problems as the project progresses. It is your project, and the we will want to make sure that you are satisfied with the end result.
