Our design process
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication". Leonardo da Vinci
To protect our practice's design ethos, we rigorously follow our Five fundamental core steps: Discovery, Design, Execution, Support and Transparency.
We view architecture as a sincere and transparent collaboration with our clients. Each project is unique and begins with in depth consultations with our prospective clients to gain a deeper understanding of who they are. Listening is indeed essential to know precisely what the "must have" fundamental components of a particular "dream house" or larger scale Hospitality /Leisure project truly are.
Rapid hand sketches will emerge from these conversations and our team will use these drawings to ask questions and propose thoughts early in the design stage. Next, an extensive conceptual design research program will inspire several drafts of schematic designs to produce digital visualizations of the resulting architectural design prototypes.
The final step, after schematic approval, is a meticulous design development process.
Interconnected with our latest aesthetics and engineering standards, it will lead to a detailed final design presentation, construction drawings and completion.
