HOW IT WORKS
We take charge of all phases of a design project, including:
1/ Draw up an accurate inventory.
2/ Preliminary Design stage: conceive of the design, propose a layout and planning, prepare conceptual plans using a 1:50 scaled model, share sketches, ideas and perspectives, discuss ambiance, colors and materials.
3/ Detailed Project Proposal stage: Once the client has approved a design, this next stage is to finalize all technical designs using 1:20 or 1:25 scaled model plans (including plans for demolition, masonry, electricity, ceiling, etc.), as well as all elevations and other features (such as closets, wardrobes, kitchen, bathroom fittings, etc.). We will also define the colors and materials during this stage.
4/ Draw up detailed design specifications with all the choices of materials and selected options.
5/ Review these plans and design specifications with trade professionals to minimalize any additional costs once the work is underway.
6/ Evaluate estimates, compare all options, commence procurement.
7/ Supervise the work in progress with weekly meetings to respond to any problems that come up or to deal with any unexpected matters. Share progress reports. Supervise handover of completed work.
8/ Decoration: select fabrics, choose the furniture, design and produce any bespoke furniture.
