At the beginning of each project, we seek to understand what the project is about. We listen and we ask questions. We listen to understand what clients want out of their project—a new bathroom, an improved kitchen—but the real work happens when we identify how a project should feel. In these early stages, we consider the practical limitations: regulations, site restrictions, and budgetary realities. Opportunity and creativity are born from this analysis.
The design work is a series of iterative sketches and drawings. The process is rarely linear and often leads to interesting detours and investigations. Through the design process, we sharpen the idea, arriving at a design that resolves the initial wants and needs—and those uncovered along the way.
“Our homes—where we eat and sleep, where we raise our kids—are so personal, and it is important to get it right.”
