The Design Social is based on the belief that Good Design belongs to everyone & shouldn’t cost the earth. As we work together you will see how that belief is fundamental to what we do in our main services:
- Planning Applications
- Interior Design
- Building Regulations
- Structural Calculations
Our approach is simple, your ideas get the attention they deserve & you only pay for what & who you need. Whether in architecture, planning applications or interior design, you will see those ideas evolve through each stage of their development until we have something individually tailored to you & your requirements.
The Design Social was founded in 2010 & is headed by Barnaby & Sally Robinson.

He was very approachable and took the time to understand our vision and what we needed. Barnaby took on our application and managed the process for us. He was very knowledgeable on different types of planning applications and talked us through our options. He also provided drawings with great detail and to a very high standard. We were delighted when our application was approved and we would highly recommend The Design Social.
