How we work

 Home design is a complicated process which can be quite frustrating. In our studio we put special emphasis on creating a friendly and collaborative environment.
 •  we listen   •  we share our knowledge   •  we believe that a stress free process leads to the better results.

Initial Meeting

Initial Meeting

To design a home we need to listen to you:
– What is your family’s lifestyle?
– Do you love to entertain?
– Do you have kids?
– What are your needs for spaces to be designed?

Conceptual Design

Conceptual Design

 We prepare a schematic design of your future house based on your needs, taking into account site restrictions as well as construction budget considerations. We provide different options and explain the pros and cons of each option.

Design Development

Design Development

 Once the rough site plan, conceptual floor plans and elevations are approved, we design the house in detail. This is a collaborative process between all parties involved in the project.

3D Model

3D Model

 We design a 3D Model of your house using A BIM software. You can have a look at your house from different angles, including both outside and inside of the completed home.

Building Permit

Building Permit

 After the design of the house is finalized, we prepare a set of construction drawings and documents necessary for approval by local building authorities. We apply for a building permit and track the project during its approval.

Construction

Construction
