Design Process

Our approach to design is straightforward.  We sit with our clients to determine what they are looking for out of their project.  Their input drives the decisions that we make as a team.

During the schematic design phase we will often work with hand sketches to keep the process fluid.  This helps us work through various design ideas quickly as we refine our design solution together.

From there we move into 3D.  By working in 3D we can work through the various aspects of each project with a wholistic approach to each space.  This use of technology to create a 3D design experience truly helps formulate our ideas and solidify the decisions that we make as we move to bring to the project to life.
