Any project can be designed as small as a custom gate design to
designing the interior of a room, all tailored to your exact needs.
Phase I – Conceptual Design
It begins with the questionnaire and in meetings with the architect
discussing ideas, looking at photos, and visiting the site. A great deal
of time is required in the initial phase to completely get across your
vision to the architect and have a proper understanding of your needs,
lifestyle and future plans.
We study the community and governmental requirements, survey
information, aerial photos, the neighboring structures, lot orientation,
topography, lot features and views. Then we start with the rough sketch.
Communicates the spatial planning of the lot and floor plan by drawing
in front of you getting instant feedback, brainstorming with you and
incorporating information from the questionnaire to develop a floor plan
which best takes advantage of all of the lots features.
Scale drawings will be done with approximate room sizes and square
footages with many overlay drawings, refinements and fine tunings. Hand
drawn 3D sketches may
be used to convey special details and features.
Different concept sketches are developed of the front elevation and
styles are researched from magazines, books, etc. All this is combined
and the architect’s ideas. If the conceptual drawings are not to your
concepts are developed, until we get to a point where the roughs are
All of the sketches are then ready to be inputted into the computer
phase II preliminary design development.
