Once a concept design is approved, we begin the second stage of our process, which contains two phases: developed design and detailed design. Developed designs require a high level of practicality, an in-depth understanding of construction principles and material strengths – and weaknesses. Once the developed design is complete, we move into the detailed design phase; to a practical blueprint for development. It is at this point that we achieve a greater understanding of how our concepts will integrate with the prescribed space, environment and materials. The concepts must be transposed into a working design for construction, and our architectural development team will ensure that nothing is lost in the translation, working closely with the chosen contractors to explore and explain the developed designs.
