Unlocking Space. Empowering people.

Not many architects leave the building until last.

We do. We put people first. We're experts in understanding the ways in which space can be used to bring out the very best in people. 

Our integrated consultancy, interiors and architecture process ensures this understanding filters through every stage of your design.

More about our story.

Consultancy

Your tailored design brief.

The science
of space.

How can you design something to meet your requirements before you know what those requirements actually are?

We work with you to apply a range of in-depth analysis methods, based on an academically-sound understanding of how people and organisations behave in space, to help us understand how your space could be made to work better for you.

We then translate this analysis into a strategy, which is then made into a reality, with our fully integrated interiors and architecture teams. The result? A space that really works over the long term.

Interiors

Bring your design brief to life.

No two businesses
are the same.

And no two spaces should be either. Our award-winning interior architects don’t simply look at you as an individual business, but as a business of individuals. 

We develop your design strategy to create an effective, efficient and, above all, inspiring space. From concept design to detailed design and delivery.

Working closely with our consultancy and architecture teams, we offer a completely seamless start-to-finish approach.

Architecture

Create a sense of community.

Planning
around people

Large scale master plans. Individual residential schemes. Community centres. Hospital wings. Churches. Architecture is about buildings that create a sense of belonging whether people work or live or simply enjoy spending time in them.

Working seamlessly with our consultancy and interiors teams, our single, integrated approach creates award-winning spaces that inspire on both the inside and out.

"I’ve always believed that true beauty really is found in the detail - and no more so than in architecture. My job is to make sure every small detail contributes to the big picture."

BCO Award Judges comments, Virgin Money Edinburgh

Spacelab provide a first rate proposition. Their approach is professional but creative. The research they complete is extensive and their workplace capabilities are second to none. A specific benefit has been the way they have successfully interacted with, and altered the mind set of, a particularly demanding group company.
