During your first consultation, our award-winning luxury home designers and/or architects will discuss the styles and features you’d like to see in your home. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, we’ll discuss your options and share ideas from other custom home designs we’ve completed within our 50+ years of combined team experience.
After filling out our Lifestyle Survey, our designers and/or architects use ideas and inspiration we gather from our consultation meetings with you, turn them into 3D conceptual drawings, and then articulate these plans into working drawings for the permit. We take great pride in leading our clients through an interactive design process and believe the key to a successful custom design is the ability to communicate and thoughtfully listen to our clients, fusing creativity and functionality to create their dream home.
During our initial consultation, we work with you to define the scope of the project, document what isn’t working in your current space, discuss your desired timeline, and articulate budget expectations. This stage will also include a site visit to further discuss your needs and the styles and features you’d like to see in your home. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, we’re happy to talk with you about your options. We’ll also discuss in greater detail what to expect during your custom home project.
In order to define their needs, our clients complete a 15-page Lifestyle Survey regarding lifestyle, style preferences, desired elements and features, and additional design considerations.
After discussing your schematic design, our architects will dive into design development enhancing your project. During design development, you will receive updated floor plans, interior layout, exterior façade, elevations, and much more.
At this point, your architect will prepare to-scale floor plans, building elevations, and exterior building materials for your initial review and design approval. Although numerous decisions must be made and your involvement and collaborations will take time, working with our architectural design team will be a fun and rewarding experience.
