The Design Process
Conceptual positions and blocks
During this phase the site is analyzed and a block layout is produced.
After receiving a brief we consider the restrictions as set out in the local planning by-laws and your title deed. We analyze whether the restrictions could impact our client’s desired house and report the findings.
This layout will have more detail regarding the layouts of the rooms and fittings. We then start fine tuning to accommodate changes from the client.
When the client is happy with the block layout, we prepare a conceptual layout for the client to approve.
Final Layout and Elevations
The Final layout is prepared for submission to the Home Owners Associations (if applicable) and local authority for approvals.
We’ll prepare all the documents for submission to the local authority. The plans will only be submitted when our client is happy with the set of drawings and has signed on the plans and application forms.
Elevations & sections accompany the Final layout for submission. Construction drawings and details get drawn and written to be issued for construction when the plans are approved.
When requested, we create photo realistic renders to give our clients a better visual concept of how the final building or spaces within it may look upon completion.
We do renders of both external and internal spaces. Colors, textures and materials will be applied to closely match what was chosen by the owner.
