Balancing Possibilities & Feasibility

The ‘Pre-Design Phase’ is the point at which we visit your space or building site and begin to merge vision and reality. This is a joyful and challenging moment that our designers are masterful at navigating with clarity & compassion.

Analysis of distinctive site features including solar orientation, topography, vegetation, renewable energy potential, water supply, and waste water and utility infrastructure are considered as well as zoning and permitting requirements. We intersect this comprehensive analysis with details about your space requirements, desired design style, and energy efficiency goals to begin to reveal the fundamental elements that compose your project.

Now is the time to be direct about your budget and timeline so we may build a strong foundation upon which to bring your project into being.
