Preliminary Design Ideation

We start with a client download. We gather ideas and information from our clients. We genuinely listen to their needs and then we start the creative feedback process  by mind-mapping a conceptual design.

Mood Boards

As conceptual designers, we believe that every design is a storytelling opportunity.  After we have our initial meeting with the client, we set the stage with mood boards and schematic plans.

Working Drawings

We have state-of-the-art equipment allowing for us to fully demonstrate what your project will look like and more importantly, we clear plans with contractor specifications and a direct path for successful execution.

Renderings

Photorealistic renderings to help better convey design ideas for final approval.

Material Selection

All finishes and materials are carefully curated for each individual project. Every detail is  thoughtful and deliberate as it relates back to the story we are conveying with your design.

Build/install

We manage the installation process from beginning to end. Coordination with architect, engineer, contractor, design specialists, and all vendors throughout the process.
