Grey Area Creative started trading in 2010 and provides architectural 2D/3D design services, planning applications and 3D visualisations in Chester-Le-Street and the surrounding area. I work full time, self employed and undertake designs for residential new build, extension and small/medium scale commercial projects including offices, hotels and holiday cottages. I cover all stages of design from early stage concept design through to construction phase and completion.

About Grey Area Creative

My design work is always based on the approach of listening and giving customers what they ask for whilst offering them creative design ideas throughout the process to add value to their projects where possible. I use the latest architectural CAD software to produce design work efficiently. My services are affordable for the level of service offered (no VAT to pay as Grey Area Creative Ltd is not registered for VAT)

The type of work I typically undertake for my customers is detailed below:

Feasibility or pre purchase/pre development studies - I can provide site or property appraisals before you purchase to give insight into the development potential, planning history and potential design constraints or opportunities of a projects at early stages, including pre purchase.

Initial design concepts and pre application advice - Early stage design concepts can be produced and submitted to the local authority for pre application advice prior to a formal planning application.

3D Visualisation - 3D stills and animation of design proposals, before and after photo based virtual comparisons, daylight studies, interior and exterior views and visual impact assessments
