Our Process

Learn as much as possible about you and your project:

  • Budget
  • Goals
  • Physical requirements (rooms, functions, adjacencies, problems that need solving)
  • Aesthetic requirements (style, feel, personality)
  • Constraints (codes, context)
  • Survey your house & build a “smart computer model”
Goal: Establish a foundation, mission statement & vision for your project

Investigate the options:

  • Multiple loose, sketchy options
  • Floor plan alternatives
  • Scope/phasing alternatives
  • Basic 3D models
Goal: Feel confident we have the best move-forward plan, because we’ve investigated all the alternatives  

Evolve the design:

  • Finishes & fixtures
  • Lighting
  • Stylistic elements
  • Details
  • Building systems
  • Involve consultants
Goal: Transform basic floor plans into a fully detailed vision, and communicate it to builders & the city

Turn our plans into reality:

  • Obtain tight, accurate bids
  • Find the best builder for your project
  • Make sure construction goes smoothly, and matches our vision.
  • Provide support to builders & other team players
  • Accommodate changes
Goal: Make sure all our previous efforts come to fruition

Agency Review (happens in parallel with the other four stages)

Deftfully navigate the city permitting process

(We handle this, so you don’t have to)

  • Foresee & avoid potential problems
  • Get things started early
  • Get through as quickly & smoothly as possible
Goal: Make the most out an imperfect process
