1. Site Analysis
We start by performing a site analysis — a process during which we identify the opportunities presented by your site.
From there, a custom program will be developed through a series of conversations during which we learn about you and how you want to live.
Once we have established your needs and desires, we will create a room-by-room outline of room sizes that will help us determine the size of house you want. From this outline or program, we can establish a preliminary budget — our first step in prioritizing your budget.
3. Schematic Design
The schematic design phase is comprised of free-hand sketches of the site plan, floor plans, and elevations. These sketches demonstrate the general concept and character of the design; how the design fulfills your needs and desires while realizing the opportunities offered by your site.
4. Design Development
During this phase, you will see your home take shape; we will translate the schematic sketches into 3-dimensional computer-generated drawings which will also be utilized later for our construction documents.
5. Interior Architecture
During this phase, we create the interior elevations and interior views that communicate the design concepts for the interior rooms including elements such as fireplace(s) along with ceiling, wall, floor, and bath details.
6. Interior Selections
We will accompany you and your interior designer to make and then coordinate your selections such as appliances, plumbing fixtures, architectural lighting, countertops, and cabinetry.
7. Construction Documents
This final phase of our basic services involves the creation of the technical drawings and general specifications that will be utilized by the general contractor to build your home.
8. Construction Observation
From there, we will act as your representative to ensure that your home is being built according to the construction documents and specifications.
1. Consultation Coordination
We will assist in the coordination of any consultant hired directly by you, such as landscape architects.
2. Renderings, Presentations, and Models
We will provide and draw perspectives, 3-dimension computer renderings, and other presentation as requested by owners and design review committees.
3. Pricing, Bidding, and Negotiation
We will assist you in selecting the general contractor and continue to help throughout the negotiation or competitive bidding process.
