Phase I – Conceptual Design

The Design Process:

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.

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.

Conceptual Elevation Theme:

Different concept sketches are developed of the front elevation and details and
styles are researched from magazines, books, etc. All this is combined with your
and the architect’s ideas. If the conceptual drawings are not to your liking new
concepts are developed, until we get to a point where the roughs are approved.
All of the sketches are then ready to be inputted into the computer starting
phase II preliminary design development.
