Our process is one that is unique to the profession. Rather than asking a client to provide information that we then take behind the curtain to work on in a vacuum, only to have “the big reveal” several weeks later, we do things a little differently. What we ask for from each client is a commitment to the project with the client as an intimate part of the design team.
It begins with gathering of information by the client and our staff. We not only gather technical information such as site surveys with topographic and other unique features, we assemble a project manual containing any design guidelines, budget constraints, potential builder lists along with any additional information that may have an impact on decisions to come. This becomes the basis for all of our decisions on the project, a sort of “wish list” in the early stages of the project that evolves as we both define the project in more detail during the design process.
