Working from Wimborne, across Dorset, Hampshire and within the New Forest National Park

INKSPACE Ltd. is an RIBA Chartered Architects and Interior design studio, based in Wimborne, Dorset. With a reputation for providing a friendly, creative and professional service, we pride ourselves in being able to help with all aspects of the design and construction process. We make it our priority to work alongside our clients, as an integral part of the design team, and believe that through listening carefully to their aspirations, we can offer creative and thoughtful design solutions that will enhance your project.

With over 10 year's experience working together in both the residential and commercial sector, INKSPACE Ltd. was founded by Principal Architects, Lauren Kibble and Sue Hancock. Together they share a mutual passion for designing beautiful, innovative buildings that have a seamless relationship between architecture, interior design and the external landscape.

Our studio has a fresh approach to designing the spaces in which we live and spend time. Alongside designing more contemporary buildings, INKSPACE also has a broad experience designing more traditional architecture, within Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Conservation Areas, such as the New Forest National Park.

Our friendly and professional approach looks to maximise the potential of your site, while ensuring the finished product enhances the lifestyle of those who use the building.

As Architects, we believe that it is our responsibility to understand our clients' aspirations, requirements and budget as well as the building's impact on the environment. It is our ambition to design buildings which are both sustainable and beautiful.

At INKSPACE we are an enthusiastic team of highly skilled Architects, with a broad experience and a wealth of knowledge within the local area and across the south coast.

  • “We wanted an innovative, fresh approach to upgrade a very boring 1980’s bungalow with no obvious front door and very ‘mean’ bedrooms.

    Our remit was for a front door, bigger master bedroom with ensuite shower,a family bathroom with a bath, something we don’t have at the moment, a utility room and open kitchen and living space.
    INKSPACE produced plans for a extension that looks modern but fits into the rural environment, with a open plan interior making use of all the limited space available in a clever way.

    INKSPACE dealt with the planning process, steering through all the hoops required by the New Forest National Park Authority. They liaised with the planning officer for our area, so there were no hidden surprises and the plans were passed.

    We would recommend INKSPACE architects.”

  • “We have worked closely with Lauren throughout our project and have benefited hugely from her creative flair, guidance and expert knowledge. Throughout this process, our ideas have been realised whilst navigating a complex planning process and a difficult build. The team are highly efficient with regards to overseeing the construction costs and have always been quick to respond to any queries we have had. This has always left us feeling reassured, in the knowledge that our project was in safe hands. 

    The home that we love has been transformed and updated to make it a truly special place, which reflects our design ambition, personality and active lifestyle.  We would always recommend Lauren and Sue to anyone who is looking for a friendly, creative and collaborative design approach to their project”.
