& CAREFULLY SHAPED SPACE
enhances the function, interactions and communication within it. I value the trust my clients place in me to design their most important spaces. I am devoted to the collaborative process and the opportunity to create spaces that enhance my clients’ lives and helps them love the space they’re in.
LET'S HAVE A CHAT
Our journey together has only just begun! Let's get to know each other, not only as client and consultant, but friend to friend. I'd love to get to know you and your hopes and dreams for the project. During this initial chat, I'll also share what you can expect from me.
Whether we meet up for an onsite visit, or in my studio, we'll start to dive into some details about the project. You'll want to have a few things on hand, just to ensure we are well-prepared to move forward.
- For remodels, please have a copy of your existing floor plan. If you don't have them on hand, don't worry - I can recreate them.
- For new construction, please have copies of any drawings you have of the project.
- Any concept photos you have are incredibly helpful in getting to know the final vision.
At this appointment, I will also take measurements and photos of the existing space, if applicable.
BRAINSTORM AND WISHLIST
Together we'll go through your wish list and goals for the project. I'll have questions for you and you'll have some for me. I'll want to know details such how you plan to use the space. How many people will occupy the space? Do you host large gatherings, or do you prefer small intimate ones instead? Together we'll establish the parameters and scope of the project.
After our meeting, I'll set to work exploring different ways to solve your spatial puzzles. Admittedly so, this just might be my favorite part of the design process. It's incredibly rewarding to provide new floor plan options for spaces that at first glance seem hopeless. If you're working on a new build, I'll help you get the most out of your space by making sure the space makes sense.
PRESENTING DESIGN CHOICES
Next, we'll get together to go over the new ideas for your space. I'll present floor plan options, and you'll provide me valuable feedback based upon your preferences. From there, the refining process starts. Once a floor plan is selected and perfected, I'll move forward to the elevations and perspectives. It's in this phase of the project that the floor plan really starts to come alive. Working together, we will get very specific about architectural details, cabinet and lighting designs and the finish material selections. I'll be there every step of the way, from the design phase through construction, helping to assure that things turn out like we've designed and envisioned them.
SOLVING SPATIAL PUZZLES
is the challenge I enjoy most. I’d love to help shape and beautify your spaces.
