First meeting with the client (Excitement from the cooperation, Exploration and exchange of information, agreeing about expectations). This initial phase of the project includes preliminary studies of the site or property. We will find out more about you and your design ambitions for the project along with your timescales & budgets, We’ll work with you to build a detailed brief and identify your design preferences. Questions regarding the specific function(s) of the space, who will be using the space and furniture and equipment requirements will be discussed. Measurements and photos are also taken at this time.
Ideation & Concept Design is the begining of the creative process. We’ll develop architectural layouts for your property as we begin to investigate finishes, design styles and influences. We’ll create renders and early 3D models describing the volumetric aspects of the design. In the schematic design phase, space planning and furniture layouts are developed. Circulation patterns and minimum clearances are considered and applied to the floor plan. Rough sketches and elevations are created, preliminary furniture and finish ideas are developed and then presented to the client for review and revision.
After final approval of the schematic design, the designer develops floor plans, elevations and other related items in greater detail. Colors and finishes are refined, furniture, fabrics and equipment are selected and cost estimates are prepared. The resulting design is presented to the client for review, revision and final approval.
