A good brief will be as detailed and project-specific as possible. It will outline the client’s requirements and aspirations, set down a budget for works and the time scale in which the project must be realised. We start with finding out what is in your mind. In the same way. Always. Asking a million questions, we start finding out about you. Your wants and your needs, your loves and your hates. Your lifestyle. We’re learning what’s meaningful to you, and what you want your home or office to say about you.
Then we begin our design process. FIRST… We develop your initial schematic designs. Why? To help you visualize your new interiors. THEN… We create construction documents. Why? Because these drawings inform crafts and trades people and of how exactly to build out your interiors. NEXT… We design it exactly. Why? By creating the vision, by setting the stage, by giving you a glimpse of your materials, finishes and colors, your millwork, custom cabinetry and much more, you’re seeing what your interiors will look like, and equally important, what they’ll feel like. AND THEN… We finalize all the drawings, all the layouts, all the custom finishes and all the details.
As an interior design project cannot be easily edited, like digital designs can, it is vital to get approval from the client before proceeding with the implementation stage. Clients are often uncertain about what they really want so it is important to present your design concept in a positive manner and highlight the positive features of the design to the client. The reason for this is that an indecisive client may result in numerous design solutions being presented without any real progress being made.
