Planning Stage
Designing for the future begins with uncovering the past
Our process begins with getting to know you, the client. No one knows more about your project’s needs than you do, so we will explore them together, and develop a “wish list” that focuses on the project’s image, the spatial requirements and relationships, and the budget, so that we may develop a mutual understanding of the project’s goals.

We will explore the site to identify views, track the path of sunlight, evaluate natural resources, traffic and circulation, and how to best arrange public and private spaces in context. We will also thoroughly research and identify the regulatory requirements, including environmental, zoning, and building code issues that affect the site.
