Concept design deals with the big ideas, and potential for the site.
During this stage you can expect to discuss architectural ideas and spatial planning through loose sketches and rough models. Concept design begins a conversation focusing on an architectural proposal that considers and responds to site conditions and opportunities within the brief.
Additional design briefs may be prepared for external consultants contributing to the project such as engineers, town planners, landscape architects, and heritage consultants. Concept design may also include a preliminary selection of materials and finishes.
We can also coordinate the preparation of a preliminary estimate of the cost of works during this stage of design.
During concept design we will draw by hand to scale, and you can expect a number of iterations and interpretations of the brief.
We may also prepare digital 3D models to assist with understanding the spatial qualities of the design.
When the broad spatial and conceptual ideas have been documented we move into: design development.
