Our Philosophy

At Big Picture Design we are not just about drawing pretty pictures.  We know that when we initially sketch out our first concepts and ideas, a project will need to be delivered at the end.  We are commercially aware designers who are client focused and always promote good design. We offer design services from the masterplanning of large mixed use schemes to the complete working drawings stage of a single small residential or commercial building. We aim to provide a quality consultancy service that fits within your fee expectations.
