This first phase starts by really talking through your requirements for the project, your design style, and evaluating your site conditions.
Our next step is to sketch some different conceptual ideas for your project - all of which will relate to your property, views, and sunlight.
Your involvement is really important during this stage! I typically offer a range of options for you to think about, so that you can decide what works best for you. We will work together to combine ideas that we have into one design direction.
This is the point when you will see the design come to life; interior and exterior perspective drawings are really helpful in translating the two-dimensional drawings into three-dimensional space.
All of the drawings we do during this phase will be hand-sketched; it is so important that we keep the design very malleable in these early stages! ...and FUN.
