Stage 0: Possibilities

Discussion for the different possibilities your project presents.

 

From this initial visit we provide a Fee Proposal outlining our services, either for a full architectural service or to suit a Client’s specific needs.

We will also advise on any other consultants which may be required, and provide an initial timeline for the project, outlining the programming of key information and submissions.

Stage 1: Inception and Client Brief

Our work process offers a personal architectural service which begins with early close collaboration with clients to develop detailed briefs. A serie of sketches are instrumental to our way of working and testing design options.

- we will organise a measured survey to have accurate drawings.

- we will contact the local planning department to check any constraint.

- we will explore the different design options and produce a serie of hand sketches that are instrumental to the process.

- we discuss the budget to be realistic with our proposal.

We play with the options until we are sure that you are happy

Stage 2: Concept Design

Finalisation of the Client Brief.
