WHAT WE DO

DESIGN

Architecture comes from a synthesis of all the elements that separately comprise and inform the character of a building: the structure that holds it up; the services that allow it to function; its ecology; the quality of natural light; the symbolism of the form; the way you move through or around it; and last but not least its ability to lift the spirits.

RESIDENTIAL INTERIOR

OUR PROCESS

  • Meet & Agree
  • Idea & Concept
  • Design & Create
  • Build

A thorough and informative design brief is an imperative part of the design process for all stake holders. The more information we can gain from the client in the early stages of design, the more effective our decision making and problem solving process will be. Our questionnaire serves as a useful tool to fulfill this criteria.  A solid starting point for the design idea. On site survey is one of the most important aspects for design services and helps in avoiding errors and omissions. It’s virtually impossible to build, without having the correct inputs. This is where the site survey becomes so vital.

A design concept is the idea behind a design. It’s how you plan on solving the design problem in front of you. It’s the underlying logic, thinking and reasoning for how you’ll design. Your design concept becomes the framework for all your design decisions. We work toward a final design going through concepts, layouts, timely feedback and collaboration. A presentation of the final design includes layouts, elevations, samples, 3d models and renditions.

In terms of working drawings such as plans, sections and elevations which are used to provide information about construction like Civil, MEP, HVAC and so on. It is further used to prepare bill of quantities, specifications and work/cash-flow progress charts. They also help in compliance for statutory requirements.

The contract document set out the obligation and responsibilities of the parties to the contract. These include : Articles of agreement and conditions of contract, Bill of quantities, Working drawings, Specifications, Schedules of work, Tendering. Success of a project is assured when architects, engineers, consultants, contractors, suppliers and all the stake holders are in coordination with each others using Coordination drawings, Technical data sheet, Material inspection sheet, Test reports, Safety Standards, Bar charts during regular site visit.
