Each project inherently comes with a different set of conditions and challenges. Therefore, our design approach involves a unique process aimed at finding the best possible solutions and communicating effectively with our client. We begin by first researching and evaluating the project’s unique demands and potential problems. This includes everything from the client’s needs, the site’s topography, environmental conditions, social impact and many other significant factors. Our fundamental belief is thus: as architectural designers and problem solvers we achieve better solutions by first better understanding a project’s questions and issues.
Initial concepts are developed quickly and continuously presented to the client for feedback. The creative process is always open and involves a constant critical dialogue with the client. Design is never done behind closed doors. Excellence is sought at each stage of the project by constant peer review and exploring many different directions. Powerful visual techniques are used to present each design, including vignette sketching, hand rendering, computer graphics, and 3D visualization. By keeping the design process fluid and transparent we aim to not only inform our clients but to inspire their passions in the project.
Project execution is developed utilizing the latest 3D/BIM software to insure a complete understanding of the design’s scale and composition. Production drawings are based on the same software to insure a high level of detail and accuracy. Experience and powerful production tools allow us to work within the most urgent of timelines to insure that project deadlines are met. Each project is overseen through all phases of construction, insuring that our expertise is always available and design intent is never in question. We strive to help our clients understand and enjoy each phase of a project, from the initial sketch to the day the keys are handed over.
