Detour

WE ARE DETOUR

We create considered, distinct and beautiful vehicle conversions for a life off–grid and on the road.

Our design studio and workshop of craftspeople have expertise across architecture, design, traditional joinery and cabinet making to new materials, solar and circular systems.

Our team works holistically across your whole conversion from design through to fit-out, furniture and finishing touches.

Every element is designed and custom built in–house by our experienced team in our Camberwell workshop. Our conversions are deeply design–led, truly bespoke and custom built to order.

And we also run online and in-person practical skills workshops like Carpentry, Electrics, and Design to support self–converters! We teach in very limited groups only, offering the same 1:1 and bespoke service we do for all our conversion clients. You can find all our upcoming workshops on our website.

If you’d like to commission a conversion, please drop us a message on hello@wearedetour.co.uk. We’d love to discuss your project.

How we work…

01 Explore

The first step to getting your custom–built conversion on the road is a consultation with our designers, either over the phone. In this exploratory call, we will talk through your brief, plans, inspiration, budget and draw up a scope of works, and cover …

Materiality
Project aspirations, inspiration and references
Desired layouts and elements
Desired timeline
Desired spend

02 Design

From this point onwards, subject to a design fee (upon request), you have a dedicated design team dedicated design team working with you to realise your bespoke project.

Working closely with you over a series of touch points, we get to work translating your vision and designing your ideal space. A process of three–dimensional scanning and modelling, with additional plans, images and mood boards, gives you get a real sense of how your finished conversion will look and feel. In this you will explore and approve –

Materials, tones and finishes
Integrated systems (solar, water)
Practical requirements for the space
Space layout
Storage needs

03 Preparation

After you have approved the look and feel of your project, we plan and prepare the final elements together.

At this stage, costs will be finalised based on your final material, element and interior choices, and we’ll deliver a detailed breakdown for the scope of works. And we will also agree on:

All final fixings and element choices
Complete scope of works
Deliverables
Project budget and payment plan
Build timeline and drive away date
