Interior Design Process
Preliminary Drawing Review
Timeline: 3-5 months
Our process has been refined in order to provide our clients with a streamlined and efficient service that minimizes cost and protects them from discrepancies and confusion that can lead to re-work.
Your vision is best served when all parties collaborate from a very early stage in the process to ensure that our architectural design team is able to incorporate key design requirements seamlessly. We want all of the value and functionality adding features that you require to be seamlessly integrated into the plans and we understand that, sometimes, minor revisions are required. Whether it’s furniture layouts or your wall mounted espresso machine, we want the infrastructure of the home to accommodate these features as seamlessly as possible.
Time estimate: 1-2 months
When undertaking the schematic design process our only goal is to understand your stylistic vision for the space and work with you to realize your goal.
We achieve this through the use of creative design concepts, sketches, drawing on extensive travels, and the experience of our uniquely skilled team that draws on a deep understanding of the industry and timeless design standards. At this phase we would also took to incorporate any unique or distinct features that you may want to seamlessly include into your design plan.
Interior Material Selections
Timeline: 1-2 months
Based on the overall vision that we understand from you in the prior two phases, the interior material selections phase is an exciting one. It is in this space that we will explore every available possibility for your space with regard to design, colours, products, and features that are available and possible.
Whether you’re interested in dramatic or subtle design features, we’ll explore the aspects of your personality that you want reflected in yout living space to ensure that we produce the feeling that you want to experience in the space over and over again. We want every detail selected during this process to speak volumes about you.
This process is also an invaluable one as it plays a large role in controlling construction costs. In order to ensure that your budget is respected, cost estimates and detailed analysis will be provided to the construction team so that you are provided with an accurate overview of the total costs associated with your project.
Timeline: Occurs 4 times throughout process
We provide detailed construction documentation that ensures the correct information is communicated to all parties involved. From millwork design, floor finishes, lighting plans, plumbing fixture specifications, and exterior specifications we ensure that every single detail is taken into consideration. We understand that changes may take place, which is why our communication is always prompt, helpful and consistent.
In order to support this process further we also provide detailed site markups to ensure our vision is communicated effectively through the construction process. Whether it is marking electrical and plumbing fixture locations on site for the construction team, delivering and organizing fixtures on a room by room basis, or reviewing hvac designs and marking duct locations on site, we will ensure that the necessary infrastructure is not intrusive to your design plan.
