Kerryellen Studios provides a complete line of design services for the food and beverage industry, commercial and residential developments, private residences and retail clients. In addition to developing the design, we collaborate with a network of builders, architects, cabinet and furniture makers as well as wholesale vendors who are innovative and practical thinkers like us, who are friendly and take pride in their work. Each project is entirely different from the next, but all are a rewarding and fulfilling experience both for us and for you.

 

Kerry Brooks is the principal designer and primary contact for your project. Kerry graduated with honours from Curtin University of Technology (BA Interior Architecture) and has over 10 years experience designing in Australia and Europe. Starting her career working for architectural practices in Perth, Kerry took her experience to Europe to work for one of the top firms in the Netherlands. Coming home from years of travel and working in big cities, a small town in the Southwest of WA beckoned her to settle in and start up her own business. Established in 2010, Kerryellen Studios has gained a loyal network of architects and specialists who understand the versatility of the modern day practice and have helped build a flexible working process that has enabled a client base in both the city and country alike.

HOW WE DO IT

There are typically 6 design stages that are ultimately adhered to throughout a project:

Each project is broken down into stages. This ensures our clients input before moving ahead with the next design phase, and it also means you have the choice to work with us throughout the complete process, or select to hire us for separate services. How involved we are with your project is entirely up to you.

 

Project Analysis
Once you have decided that we are the team for you, We then have our first design meeting to discuss your design objectives, survey the site and establish a brief and a budget. We also take into consideration any constraints of the project.

 

Schematic Design
We then take the information you have given us and start the design process through the development of preliminary space plans, conceptual drawings and furniture and material research. At this stage we can also provide a 3D artistic visualisation of the space being designed to help you understand the feeling of the space before you commit.

 

Design Development
This is where we document the proposed design into technical drawings and specification documents that we then issue to council for approval (if necessary). We make sure all designs adhere to Australian Standards regarding restrictions and regulations, complete final selections of finishes and fittings and gather any required service consultant plans.

 

Contract Documentation and Administration
All documentation drawings and specification reports are prepared to price the job and inform the design intent to the builder. We can also help with tender services by recommending builders to secure a fair price and time frame.

 

Construction
This is where the ideas that you had come to life. We will conduct site inspections and liaise with you and the builders on site to ensure that construction goes accordingly and address any concerns.

 

Post Construction
We will complete a final walk-through with you and go through any remaining items on the defects list. A set of ‘As Constructed’ drawings will be delivered to you and the project handover is complete.

 

NOTE
Not all of these activities will pertain to your particular project; you have the option to select the services depending on your specific needs. For more information please call us at 0457 600 727 (Kerry Brooks) or email us at hello@kerryellenstudios.com.au
