We guide our clients through the creation of a program, or “wish list”, to determine the design requirements. We then undertake an analysis of the building site looking at sunlight, wind, views and other physical features of the site. Finally, we provide preliminary sketches of the proposed residence and present these for discussion.
The next stage is to fully develop the floor plans and elevations with consideration to both interior and exterior design elements. We also discuss building options such as structural and mechanical systems, and sustainable technologies to help guide our clients through the decision making process.
Construction documents, or “working drawings”, are prepared for accurate pricing by your contractor, and for building permit application and approval.
