Architectural Design Process

We believe that great relationships build great projects. We ask questions, outline your goals, and formulate a detailed summary that is referenced throughout the project. The initial meeting is complimentary, and if you would like to proceed, we follow up with a proposal detailing the scope of work with a fixed-fee for each service (unless otherwise noted). Upon your approval, we proceed with the design process documented below.
