The Journey Matters
Accommodation Design Process
Define the Concept
Every project is viewed through our fresh eyes. No matter how big or small, we explore your Property’s potential in order to define the appropriate level of time, resources and focus that will be rewarded by your guest.
→ We work to deeply understand your Property. What is your story? What is it that gets you and your guests excited? What is the reason your guests want to stay with you?
→ We help you define your Property’s needs, both in terms of the concept you are trying to market and the operations you need to support.
→ We define the nuts and bolts. What is your budget? What is your timeline? What are the project’s opportunities and limitations?
→ We send you a Return Brief and Design Proposal. This confirms that we have understood your needs correctly, defines the scope of work and proposes the fees for the project.
Design the Space
We connect the dots to create beautiful, memorable designs based on your Property’s personality, giving your Property an identity that appeals and relates to your audience. Feeling excited already?
→ We present you with the overall ‘look and feel’ of your Property using imagery and other references.
→ We present you with preliminary floor plans and elevations to explain the concept and give you a solid idea about how your new Guest Room, Lobby, or F&B space will look. This may include 3D visualisations if you want to take it to the next level.
→ We prepare technical drawings and documentation for you to get any Third Party Approvals, Construction or Fit Out Quotations.
→ We prepare preliminary budgets and inventory schedules.
Develop the Dream
Our Construction, Fit-Out and Procurement partners provide you with a project quote and fit out program. We manage the project from beginning to end to get the job done whilst you do what you do best and run your Hotel!
→ We work with your Brand or Management Company that may require an approval process.
→ We liaise with the selected Construction or Fit-Out Company to ensure quality control and ensure built product is as specified.
→ We can organise Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment Procurement (FF&E).
→ We represent you during construction and make informed decisions based on your requirements.
“Working with Spacecraft has been a pleasure and a positive experience. The design team went above and beyond the call of duty, ensuring not only a beautiful and functional design, but a concept that has been working for us commercially. The guys were really hands on through every step of our refurbishment – we’re already working with them on another project!”
– Shabir Satya, General Manager, Haven Inn Glebe

Renovation Budget Estimator
So how much does a renovation cost? Have a play around with this Budget Estimator to get a ball-park figure for your property.
Need new dining chairs but don’t need to gut your bathroom? Want to renovate some rooms and see how it goes? This is the perfect tool to give you an idea of what you could be up for.
Now numbers are fun but they’re also deadly, so please remember that while we’ve made every effort to ensure the Estimator is as accurate as possible…the final cost of a renovation depends on many factors. If you really want to get some sharp figures, get in touch and we’ll make it happen.
So now seems like a good time to check in with the strategic side of your operation and make sure a renovation makes good business sense for you. Push and pull the numbers to compare your current situation (Occupancy, ADR, RevPAR) with the projected Uplift and Payback periods after your renovation.
