Sculpt is an interior architectural studio and workshop based in Birmingham, the city of innovation. Founded in 2016, we offer an alternative to the typical processes found in modern design.

Our process is all built around three key stages which outline a progression of detail and complexity. Much like an artist, we ensure we define the rough shape of the project and its requirements, before developing a robust design approach and finally refining the details.

Services

  1. Full measured surveys and site relevant research gives us an in depth understanding of what we are working with
  2. Defining the brief and distilling the key requirements of the client and the project. Feasibility studies may help with this process and define what will be possible.
  3. Defining a concept helps the whole team to understand the creative approach, further varied research helps to inspire the conceptual scheme.
  4. All manner of construction drawings, details, specifications and schedules help to translate the finished design into buildable information.
  5. Choosing the right contractor is vital to the success of the project, we consider cost, availability, skills and attitude to help the client make the best decisions.
  6. The wider design team may consist of multiple teams of specialists, we instruct and brief the wider team and coordinate the information they produce whilst consistently referring to the original brief
  7. Once a project is on site, we can be there to assist with the project as it develops. This might just be ensuring the programme doesn’t slip and responding to simple RFIs, it could also mean quickly reacting to site conditions or unforeseen circumstances.
  8. We can manage and fulfill all of the complex contract administration, statutory approvals, planning applications, building control and CDM Principal Designer duties.

Commitments

We believe design can have a  push effect, so in everything we  do we are guided and dedicated to an environmentally responsible  approach, favouring smart and sustainable materials in all our builds. We also limit the amount  of impact our office and staff has on the planet. We use public transport for longer journeys and have a fully electric car for  travelling shorter distances. We are happy to offer pro-bono advice and discounted rates for registered charities and we donate 1% of our revenue to  St Anne’s Hostel here in Digbeth. For more information on their work for homeless men, please visit: www.stannesbirmingham.org.uk

Our commitment to design and the region extends to our involvement in the Birmingham Design Festival – an annual celebration of our rich industry of which our Creative Director was a founding member.
