This is where it all begins through an exercise of space analysis, by-law and understanding surrounding environment constraints + opportunities, initial site visits, space auditing and area calculations, feasibility study and defining the project scope and getting to know you and understand your needs and requirements.
Here, I develop a concept that is strong, identifiable and unique to you. Through this, I provide a story that is developed with the aid of inspirational and lifestyle imagery complimented with initial space planning. With a preliminary furniture, fixture and equipment package introduced alongside tangible finishes so you can begin to not only see yet feel your space develop all brought together through visual representation providing the information necessary for an agreed direction of the character and aesthetic intent of your project.
A design-intensive phase in which all design elements are developed, including demolition plans where required, partition plans, reflected ceiling plans, furniture layout, finishing plans, and power and communication plans, elevations, sections and important details along with any mill-work drawings. To finalize, all colour, furniture, finishes, lighting, equipment, hardware and all pertinent materials are confirmed. Coordination with associated professional project consultants commences during this phase. Through this, the goal is to define and gain approval of all of the design recommendations prior to moving into the construction and documentation.
