ESTABLISH CLIENT NEEDS
Our first priority is to listen and understand, then to validate and articulate your unique, actual needs. This is not a passive process, because oftentimes a client does not know what it needs to achieve its goal. With your input, we will decide together which objectives are in your interest.
This phase of the process engages the imagination and the intellect on both a macro and a micro level. The big picture begins to emerge, while the fine detail is simultaneously being hammered out. Experience and historical precedence inform the direction, while unique, customized and new elements specific to your company are incorporated.
The design phase is an iterative process involving schematics, 3-renderings, drawings, video or other conceptualizations of what the end product will look like. Your feedback is actively solicited and integrated into each new iteration. When you sign off, you will have a clear understanding of what the future building or room will look like, and how it will function, down to the finest detail.
Convergence starts to happen. Everything up to this point begins to come together and the design begins to answer its own questions. It takes on a life of its own, and the design manifests. When this phase is complete a set of construction documentation is delivered.
