This phase involves measuring the property and preparing "as built" drawings. These are drawings of the existing condition of the site and any existing structures on the property.
We then create a program based on the scope of the job. The program defines the use and functionality for the project. If it is a remodel, what is being removed and what is new. If it is a new house, what spaces are required, interior and exterior.
We then work on preliminary designs, based on the program, to investigate the new space and spatial layout with relation to the existing space, if there is one. This phase includes two-dimensional (2D) paper drawings and three-dimensional(3D) computer modeling.
