Saleable Show Home

East Sussex

Classic, yet contemporary, aspirational show home

At Pfeiffer Design, we are lucky enough to work with a wide variety of clients. From couples having just bought their dream home and retirees looking to refurbish their family home fit for the new phase in their lives, to restaurateurs and hoteliers looking for that wow-factor for their latest venture. Over the years, we have also worked closely alongside developers on both new build and refurbishment projects.

10 Contemporary New-Build Family Homes

Our team is able to consult on all aspects of a development project, from interior architecture, finishes, to-scale floorplans and layouts, lighting and small power design, right down to window treatments, furniture and accessories for that ideal show home.

Our latest project is an example of just this, a collaboration with a local developer, resulting in this aspirational show home – one of ten contemporary semi-detached new-build family homes situated in a quiet village near Newhaven in East Sussex.

Working closely alongside a local developer

Part of the benefit of engaging an interior designer in the early stages of any project, is that it allows for the ability to positively shape the end result from the beginning. This particular project saw us working closely alongside the developer throughout the design and build process. We produced detailed layout drawings, as well as lighting and electrical design for each of the ten houses.

Specification documentation and accurate costing

Throughout the build, we were consulted and specified various finishes including flooring, carpet, kitchen finishes including ironmongery and worktop material, paint colours, tiling, sanitaryware etc. This meant that as a team we were in complete control of the finished result, meaning the developers were guaranteed a project that not only looked contemporary and aspirational to potential buyers, but functioned well as family homes too.

Throughout the project, we kept our client abreast of the latest innovations and trends and sourced and supplied samples of all finishes – so that decisions could be made with the entire scheme in mind. Alongside the samples, we provided specification documentation and accurate costings, so that all parties were kept informed regarding costs throughout the design process.

Selling the dream

An important part of any development project is truly understanding the target customer, as well as the property style and location, in order to maximize marketing potential. Within any development project we undertake, our designs combine innovative ideas and industry trends, in order to create inspiring and aspirational show homes that really sell the dream.

This project involved a lot of in-depth communication between our team and the developer and a methodical approach to design – resulting in the creation of ten dream homes that reflect not only what potential buyers are seeking, but also the brand values and reputation of the developer.

What our client says:

“I recently commissioned Pfeiffer Design to design, supply, fit and install a show home for a development of 10 houses in Sussex. As well this, I worked closely with the Pfeiffer Design team on the layouts and lighting design, as well as specification of finishes, for all all ten houses.
I had worked with them before on other projects so knew how they worked and quality of the work and delivery with which they approach all their projects. I gave Lesley a budget, but they actually ended up delivering for 15% less than this, and the end result was far better than I expected for the original budget. Because I trust what Pfeiffer Design are capable of, I left Lesley completely to it, and she dealt with my on-site project manager and site team for deliveries, storage and install.
All in all a very painless and great end result with the open day generating a lot of interest and two sales on the first day. Excellent work Lesley and the team at Pfeiffer Design, thank you.”
