Design Process

The first phase of the process is a review of your current space or plans to get a sense of your goals, dreams and lifestyle. During the project evaluation the existing architecture, materials, natural light, ventilation, and space planning are taken into consideration. Next a set of scaled drawings is prepared. Then begins the process of creating solutions and alternatives that integrate the functional and aesthetic criteria. Throughout the design developement we continue to meet with you to assess the progress and direction of your project. As the new plan takes shape we acquire key materials such as flooring, cabinet finishes, and other hard surfaces that will set the tone of the design. After these materials are selected and a substantive plan has been developed, the project is at a stage where it can be estimated. Once the scope of project is approved, studio Emphasis finalizes the design.
