The Project has been a great success, all our clients and visitors are asking who designed this amazing space. The space is a new innovative approach for a traditional legal firms office. My team is buzzing from all the comments and accolades”

Our Philosopy

Here at Drawing Desk we create projects that look behind the surface of a building, into the soul of a building, creating atmosphere and energy.
The philosophy to our work is called ‘5D thinking’, as explained;

2D thinking is a single plane e.g. floor plans.
3D thinking is the area and height e.g. volumes.
4D thinking is the surrounding area e.g. site context.

In 5D design the site connects to the local area, achieving community engagement with the site. This is the main and ultimate victory of any Drawing Desk project.

Mindset, ‘Third-layer design’

  • First-layer design is thinking. First-layer design only addresses the brief. 
  • Second-layer is feeling. Second-layer design only brings the vision to life.
  • Third-layer is understanding. Third-layer design delivers the purpose. Projects that achieve the third-layer of design have the most powerful impact. 
  • It important for us to experience the first-to-third layer journey through projects in order to grow as professionals. 


  • empathy
  • compassion
  • mindfulness

creating sustainable & conscientious architecture that places priority on improving the peoples lives using our values of empathy, team collaboration and practice of mindfulness

Drawing Desk - Testimonial

"A group of our neighbours engaged Parminder and his team to help with some objections to a proposed planning application that would impact on our residential amenities. The fabulous images they produced were pivotal in successfully gaining some changes to the application. The team visited us in our homes and were friendly, professional and innovative in their approach to the project and helped us to clearly see the ‘before’ and ‘after’ effects of the proposals. We were very satisfied with the service from the team and happily recommend them for their visual representations."
