Founder and Director









Alicia has been fabulous to work with.

So professional from the original structured quote for sessions right through to following through on drawings and video cads and visuals.

She liaised with myself and the architect and made everything come to life.

I couldn’t recommend working with her enough.

Alicia did an incredible job in giving advice on designing a new extension. She was easy to chat to and made the process efficient and fun. She took her time explaining the process and what steps to take from start to finish in going about with the extension.
Alicia also provided help with which documents will be required to support the design to allow the permitting and construction process to run smoothly. It's my pleasure to give her as high of a rating as I can.

We provide Space Planning for Nott Office on a number of their projects.  Thanks goes to Jonathan Nott, Director for the lovely testimonial below:

"Alicia is a fantastic designer, with a vast knowledge of the industry and creative flair, I would have no reservations in recommending Basecamp Interiors to any client in the future."

Jonathan Nott  - Nott Office

Alicia designs are creative, inspiring, up to date and most importantly achievable. Her knowledge of interiors, building regulations and the build process allows schemes to be built with minimum problems and be approved by all the necessary authorities.

The quality of the design and drawing work from straight 2D plans through 3D, rendering and videos is exceptional and I would not hesitate to recommend Alicia and Basecamp Interiors for commercial interior projects.

Good sustainable design needs full mentorship or design packages at each stage to bring all the elements together. 


A successful project needs a detailed brief to establish exactly what you want from your design and ensures you get the best solution.

Through Design Mentorship we create a detailed brief and feasibility study and identify areas in which the productivity, sustainability and well-being can be increased.

The brief will identify your budget which we will design to.


We can work with your existing drawings or create new.

A measured survey will check what has been built as existing drawings may not be correct or cover everything required to create a new design.

We provide accurate existing plans and identify capabilities of the property for development.  We can also survey the furniture and fittings.


Based on your brief and survey we create a concept board, 2D layouts and 3D visuals with shopping list so you can fully understand the design. 

We believe there is only one correct solution based on your requirements that will reflect you or your brand.

For commercial projects it is one of the biggest marketing tools and functional aspects to operate successfully. 


We provide full cost estimates prior to tendering so that we can value engineer if required. Raw material costs are rising rapidly so the quick the project takes the cheaper it will be. The best way to speed up the process is to make quick decisions, no revisions and don't delay.  

We manage the full tendering process to ensure you get the best contractor to deliver your requirements.

By choosing this route compared to using a design and build company you can ensure you get the design you really want, quality is maintained, and any cost savings are passed onto you.


We provide full drawing packages required for construction and to comply with building regulations.

We work with the contractors early in the process to provide a fast track solution. 

This ensures that you do not run into any foreseeable problems and that the contractor does not make snap decisions onsite which could lead to compromised design or functionality.

This helps in keeping costs on track and prevents delays to construction. 


Permitted development, planning applications, conservation areas, listed buildings ...we advise on the best route and deliver it for you.

Building regulation approval is required for most building works and is the minimum standards for design, construction and alterations. All our work is compliant, and we often exceed the standards to future proof designs and be sustainable.


By appointing us to oversee your construction project you have peace of mind that our design and specification is carried out.

We will co-ordinate all the elements and make sure you remain on-track.


We offer a final project completion assessment as part of the project management or as a separate service on our projects or others. Our expert eye will pick up any items not up to standard or specification and oversee the rectification.


We provide full procurement of furniture and accessories. We work closely with many suppliers and other professionals so we can provide all the services you require for a turnkey solution.

The more efficient we can be the more time we have to enjoy our lives and be less stressed.

Productivity is vital for all spaces including the home and it can be achieved with less time spent on chores and more focus on tasks.

We create designs, procedures and relationships that increase efficiency, freedom of expression and collaboration.


The shocking images of litter at Everest Basecamp were just another long list of stunning environments that are being destroyed.

We make your Basecamp as Eco friendly and sustainable as possible by using materials and processes that are less harmful to the environment.

And where possible we always buy British.


The health of people is at the heart of our designs, to support positive physical and mental health through careful consideration of the space and all elements within and most importantly treating people as individuals each with different needs.

We analyse how the space is to be used and provide the best solution to help not only reduce peoples stress but encourages a healthier lifestyle.


Wherever you decide to camp, be prepared, have a great environment and you can achieve anything you want.


Alicia's passion for health & wellbeing came from her own struggles which started at university when she became extremely ill. This led to a journey of discovery. and an in-depth understanding of body & mind and how the spaces we occupy affect us in every way.

That’s where Basecamp Designs comes in to creating interiors that not only impress but increase the well-being of the users.

The average Brit spends 22 hours indoors equating to around 90% of their day.

Basecamp Designs acts as design consultant for Installation and Refurbishment Solutions (IRS), a specialist commercial interiors and relocation company who are committed to providing an individual solution for your office move or refurbishment, giving you the peace of mind that your project is in the hands of the experts.
