A Great Client...
Please note that an excellent designer is thinking for you on many levels. We are thinking about life safety and local regulations to keep your project out of regulatory trouble (code compliance). We are thinking about the site and environment - maximizing its potential - which is a big freebie for you… in every way. We are thinking about what products will perform well, look beautiful and save you money over the long term (life-cycle value and maintenance issues). We are thinking about proportion, the budget, your personal wish list and how we can give you the best product possible under all of our circumstantial limits.
Sometimes, we can rush through this process… and sometimes, we need your patience while we work things out to coordinate and make it perfect for you.
We emphasize quality over quantity as a rule and apply a rigorous quality control process from the napkin to close out.
As promised, in future posts, we will continue to share information that relates to designing for factors that influence yet another topic that we keep an eye on while we work… and that is… Universal Design and how design impacts health and physiology.

Here is what our design development work looks like so far...north facade. Still a work in progress.... we start with our details and build around that so we always know where everything will land in the field. At this point we still need selections so pricing will change and with it - the way this building will eventually look.
Design development - starting our building sections/interior elevations! This is still in progress with many selections needed and issues to work out.... This is a view of the kitchen (east facade). Rather than have a full size fridge, we will split it in two with the freezer on the bottom - both are built in and shown here on the far right.
