Our concept based design style places emphasis on authentic content coupled with inspiring ideas.
We begin our design process by meeting with you and carefully listening to your needs and expectations. In this 90 minute consultation we thoroughly discuss project ideas, budget considerations, and time frames.
Comprehensive design plans include:
- Concepts for spatial design and décor
- Selection of materials and fixtures
- Wall colors and finishes, fine art, decorative design
- Installation plans for all concepts, features, and fixtures
After the scope of the project is outlined you will receive a detailed estimate, or in the case of larger projects, a preliminary project summary along with a first stage design presentation package*.
For commercial or large scale residential projects, we develop full color design presentations based on your preliminary preferences. Comprehensive presentations include sample materials, drawings, color design, and scale models. This type of presentation precedes a formal bid for the entire project.
With smaller or less detailed projects, clients receive sample boards, color charts, and scale drawings after the primary contractual agreement has been established.
We are available to our clients before, during, and after an installation. We believe in service and commitment to our client’s vision. Your happiness is our best recommendation!
*Design presentation costs vary depending on the scope of the project. Preliminary design fees are separate from cost estimates for the final project installation, purchases of materials, project management fees, and sub-contractors.
We believe that beauty and harmony are as essential to each human spirit as air and water are to our bodies. In order to effectively co-create with others of like mind, we have chosen spatial design and genus loci (spirit of place) as our medium for communication and exchange.
Integrity coupled with imagination is the essence of our business. Whenever and wherever possible, we are committed to using green products and services for our design applications. It is our preference to use recycled and natural materials (*see custom design page) and low toxicity paints, clays, and stains. We support sustainable building, landscaping, and the protection of our precious environment.
