Our design process begins with listening. We believe that understanding our client’s goals and dreams is essential to every project. From this foundation, we engage in a comprehensive study of the site and landscape, including its possibilities and constraints. We guide our clients through a detailed design process allowing them to make informed decisions at each step along the way.
As the design evolves we explore the connections between indoor and outdoor spaces, views, and light, as well as choices about materials, sustainability, and building systems. Each design develops through the use of hand sketches, digital renderings and physical models. Throughout the process, we pay close attention to our client’s budgets and engage contractors in cost estimating early on. With the client’s approval of the design, careful research goes into the preparation of detailed specifications and construction drawings.
