We begin each project with extensive research in order to understand its environmental, cultural, and historical context. We use our findings to create a strong sense of place for the structure that will be built.
In this phase, we examine factors such as site location, size, topography, and climate, taking into consideration any potential future conditions.
The building we create is the result of its setting and the site's specific requirements. In addition to being efficient and aesthetically appealing, it must also reflect the time and context in which it is built.
The starting point of the construction process is zoning analysis, one of our specialties.
We create a comprehensive report that assesses the development rights of the property based on local zoning regulations. As part of the due diligence that we conduct, this analysis determines what can be built on the property.
Among the different types of research, we perform to ensure the success of a project is market analysis.
Understanding the current market conditions helps us propose ideas that will guarantee the best business value, and create a more unique and well-received project.
Through techniques ranging from sketching and modeling to research and architectural theory, we serve all the stakeholders of a project.
We use architectural modeling to produce a 3-dimensional representation of our design, giving our clients a feel for what the project will physically look like. Used as a presentation tool to express our design plan, it is a 3-d replica of the overall design on a much smaller scale.
