The Design Process

The design process outlines the general phases that a project will undergo to provide clarity on the steps and sequences of the project. The design process is collaborative to ensure that your vision and needs are incorporated into the design.


  1. Introduction – Discuss the scope of the project and get a preliminary understanding of client’s vision, how they will use the space, and budget
  2. Initial Design Consultation Phase
    • Site visit to do walkthrough and deeper discussion into the use of each space and the occupants. The site visit is a fact gathering process
    • Discuss project time line
    • Creating letter of agreement
  3. Planning Phase
    • Additional discussions on preferences, style and gathering of inspiration images
    • Measurement of areas included in the project
    • Inventory of existing furnishing to be included in the project
    • Create a budget
  4. Conceptual Design Phase – 
    • Preliminary drawings, floor plans and simple elevations, if applicable, focusing on the layout and function of the space
    • Presentation for feedback
    • Identify subcontractors
