Design Ideas

Every space is different. Every structure has its unique reason for existing.
We might produce a thousand ideas before arriving at the perfect one for a project or client. It's a necessary part of the creative architectural process and one that we take seriously. Here's how we do it:


  • Start with a project mission statement
  • Create a mind map using key words and phrases in the mission statement
  • Use the mind map to arrive at the 3-5 top project objectives
  • Use the top 3-5 project objectives to brainstorm project goals in a non-judgmental environment

  • Rigorously review goals and objectives to assign a priority ranking
  • Create project plan based on goals and objectives that includes milestones and contingencies
