Unlocking Space. Empowering people.

We leave the building until last.

It’s about vision and people. We turn your vision into reality, putting people at the heart of everything we do. We harness leading edge technology and practice user-centred design to achieve this.

We push the limits. We’re leading the way in changing our industry.

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.

"From their forensic examination of our needs, to their final recommendation, Spacelab worked with us as true partners. Their attention to detail, their fresh and innovative thinking and patient collaboration never ceased to amaze us."

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. Places of Worship. 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 Research and Design 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."

Robin Lonsdale, Director
