Building Design is not our job, its our passion. Our design process is driven by your wants and desires, underpinned with our expertise in building and design science. Your design, how it ‘should’ be.
A approach goes beyond standard building design. We take the features and concepts your looking for and find the solution that fits your desire, lifestyle and budget. Successful Building Design and subsequent project completion is inevitably a compromise between our dreams and the space and funds we have to work with. We guide you through the compromise by offering experience based alternatives when required. Quite often its a process of digging deeper into your wants, needs and dreams to find the best solution.
Is the design practical, or is function being cast aside for form. Can the finish or look be achieved with other products, can the space be made to feel bigger or more cozy through design alteration. Is my space working with and for me, or against me. Is my design working with my climate, environment and lifestyle choices. How do i feel about maintenance, climate control, energy efficiency, cleaning and privacy. Will my design be naturally cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
How we find the answer to these questions and how they fit with your vision is the ultimate determination of the standard of design.
Design Science is founded in “how things should be, not how things are”. Be it your home or your place of business, how it works and integrates within its environment, and how you live within the environment it creates, is a major factor within the science of building design.
The technical elements of your design begin with location. What climatic conditions are experienced within the location of your project and how do they affect your building. How hot is it in summer or cold is it in winter. From what direction does the sun rise and fall at different times of the year. From what direction do the cooling breezes of summer come from or the freezing winds of winter. Is my project high on a hill, low in a hollow, surrounded by vegetation or surrounded by neighbors. Which direction does the rain and storms come from, and which direction do views into and out of my neighbors come from.
The application of these technical elements determine how well our design will fit with our desired lifestyle. We consider how you wish to live or work within your space and how best we can utilize design elements to influence the environment within that space. Design can affect both indoor and outdoor living.
