We often get asked, how do we come up with our designs. The answer is pretty simple, we look around. our inspiration usually comes from spotting a building, either in the flesh or online.
For example, one of our railway stations is based on a station near to our base. The one in question being Padgate Railway Station in Warrington.
We literally took this as our base, and built it out from there.
We have a great design knowledge that allows us to design something, and visualise it as it would be in 3D. We pride ourselves on getting it 95% correct in our first pass. Then refining as little as possible to get the final product. We love nothing more than nailing it first time. (Its a bit of an office competition).
We also extend our initial designs if we think we add value. So extending the Station above was a secondary thought. As with the terraced/semi houses. They can be developed into numerous shop fronts easily.
We will post more of our tips and tricks very soon.
