In this phase, we have our Client Lifestyle Meeting where we listen and learn about you and your project.
We document and measure the space being designed. We also establish your Project Timeline and Planned Investment Guide.
Once the information is gathered, design begins! We present the design concepts using mood boards and furniture layouts. We listen to your feedback and make one round of revisions to perfect the design.
After establishing the design direction in the Conceptual Design Phase, in this Phase we begin to bring the vision to life. We further develop the design concept through selection and specification of furniture, finishes, accessories (also known as FF&E), including lighting, fabric, paint color and more.
We prepare annotated floor plans, ceiling plans, finish plans, power + data plans, interior elevations, and custom millwork details. We also provide 3D renderings to help you visualize the design.
We meet to review the design and listen for your feedback. We make one round of revisions to finalize the Design Package.
Now that the design is finalized, we begin the implementation phase by taking everything we have designed together and communicate that to contractors and architects through detailed drawings.
Once a contractor is selected by the client, we review architectural and construction documents to ensure design intent is properly illustrated. We participate in contractor-led budget review, respond to RFIs, and provide feedback to the client.
Once construction begins, we visit the site to ensure the design intent is being honored. We send you Weekly Updates to inform you about the progress.
We procure the furnishings, finishings, lighting, decor, and more, required for the successful execution of your project. This entails correspondence with suppliers, generating purchase orders, obtaining progress reports, receiving deliveries and arranging installation.
Our Weekly Updates will keep you informed about the status of orders.
This is the day we have been waiting for! We will schedule a day(s) when all the furnishing arrive together so that you can finally get to experience the space as designed. We will bring fresh flowers and have a celebratory toast to punctuate this milestone.
During this phase, we will follow up on any outstanding items on the punch list so that all the details come through to completion. We will provide you with a care and maintenance packet so for all the furnishings and finishes we have specified.
