After getting to know the new clients (or old clients with new ideas), Josh initiates the design process by producing hand-drawn sketches for floor plans, elevations, sections, and perspectives. This essential step allows for ideas to be quickly synthesized and communicated to the client. Sketching is not only the starting point but also a tool used throughout the entire project.
Once the project's concept is understood, the team refines the design through computer modeling. This allows for a comprehensive analysis of the design, and facilitates the ability to create sections, plans, and perspectives as needed to convey and improve the project.
Once the team determines the design has reached a high level of refinement, renderings may be commissioned. This step allows our clients to visualize the impact of our collaborative decisions on the overall aesthetics and functionality of the project. Renderings are also used for presentations to neighborhood review boards and permitting authorities to assuage any concerns and ignite enthusiasm for the design.
