Inhabitat Design Studios has been founded by the RIBA Chartered architect Sandra Orlando Payne. The company’s commitment to best practice, professional and ethical standards to clients, employees and architecture sector is consistently tested and improved to achieve an outstanding service. Our architecture frames this experience beautifully, with materials which embrace human emotions. Ecodesign is at the heart of everything we do. Whether new build, radical remodelling or reworking existing buildings with sustainability in mind, we believe in the integration of the natural and the built environment. We have a holistic approach to design. We have coined our own approach to the “ecolux” concept which combines sustainability and luxury design. With an understanding and sensitive approach to historic settings we strive to produce contemporary solutions for modern living that will always complement and enhance traditional buildings. Our projects and corporate social responsibility is strongly oriented to enhance the sense of community and to raise ecological awareness.
WE LISTEN ‘always’
We take time to fully understand our clients priorities. For us the initial brief and project feasibility is the key to a successful project. In the same way that we wouldn’t build a house on shallow foundations any project needs to be built solidly from the bottom up.
WE DESIGN ‘with flair’
Our approach to design is methodical and practical. We take pleasure on the challenge of helping clients with complex projects and our well tested systematic approach works every time. For us creative thinking and design flair go hand in hand. We generously share our design experience with our clients and take pride in providing a ‘unique’ answer for each commission.
WE DELIVER ‘successfully’
We provide a full range of options and our fees are transparent. From concept design, planning applications, detail design through to technical drawings, tendering to building contractors and all the way to building control applications and site contract administration; our clients can chose the way they engage with us.
