INSPIRATIO is an Architecture & Interior Design firm established by young architects with substantial experience working on both small and large scale projects, vary from interiors & private residences to public buildings such as corporate offices, restaurants, clinics, hotel, spas, apartment flats and schools.
We like to challenge ourselves in finding new design solutions and concepts to the building typology and context, that results in unique form and spaces that is highly engaging the end users.
We are excited when our built projects could offer new spatial experience, one that is story-telling, inspiring and relevant to the client needs.
What are the services that you provide?
Our design services include assistance to clients to define their needs through conceptual scheme all the way to construction drawings, and if needed, until periodical site supervisions during project construction.
What is your design services rate?
We follow the standard design rate from our architect association, refer to:
IAI Jakarta. For example, for private houses it's about 8% of the construction budget.
How do we get started?
The first step is gathering all informations about the project, that is finding about your needs, informations about the site, (i.e : location, boundaries, regulations), also about the schedule and budget. It is best to know everything about the project beforehand to understand its challenges and opportunities.
How early in the planning process should I get an Architect involved?
The earlier the better. Architects can help a client come to a firm understanding of their needs and how to achieve their end goals from project inception all the way through move-in. They can even be involved in post-occupancy evaluations to help determine whether or not the finished project achieved the desired goals.
How long will it take to complete a project?
Depends on many factors, including the scale of the project, are the clients available to meet regularly and will they make timely decisions. For houses it's generally take 3 months to complete a design.
Can you also carry out constructions, or help me find a contractor?
We are a design consultant thus not specialized in building the project, but we work closely with qualified & competent contractors, and can highly recommend them to our clients.
Can you provide an accurate project cost estimate?
After all design phases are finished, we usually recommend our clients to use a Quantity Surveyor to get an accurate cost estimation. They can provide an efficient and thorough budgetary analysis to arrive at an accurate estimated project cost at various stages of the project’s development.
Do you have experience with sustainable design?
Yes. We elaborate passive energy design in most of our projects where we maximimize the use of natural light & ventilation in our buildings. One of our project incorporated rain-water collecting & grey-water recycling as means to provide daily water supply. We know and worked closely with MEP experts to achieve sustainable design.
