The Design Process
Our design process is a systematic and iterative approach to creating beautiful and functional interior spaces that meet the needs of its user. Throughout the process, we may collaborate with architects, engineers, contractors, and other professionals to ensure that the design meets safety standards and building codes. The process includes several formatted discussions to understand the needs and desires of the client, the goals to be achieved and the intended spend. With this information, our team creates the design aesthetic visuals and build plans. Once the necessary adjustments are made and the design is approved, we bring the vision to life!!!
See below for more details on our process...
Phase 2: Survey and Agreement
We can meet at our Design Studio or on-site to determine the scope of the project. Together we will review your preferred design style, meet with your architect and builder and any other preferred vendors and plan the way forward. During this phase we will also take time to evaluate the existing space, including its size, shape, and features. Once finished, we will have a well-defined scope of work which can be formalised in follow u correspondence and will include the design fee information.
Phase 3: Design Plan and Presentation
During this phase we create a design concept that incorporates the client's needs, budget, and desired aesthetic. We will present to you all floor plans and drawings, showing the intended layout and overall design idea for the space. Here we will also show all intended materials, fabrics, paint, flooring, finishes, furniture pieces, lighting design and anything else that will contribute to the general mood of the project. Upon your review, the design is tweaked and edited and/or approved into the final design plan. The design plan can be transformed into a binder that will serve as a guideline communication for all trades involved in your project.
Phase 4: Implementation and Evaluation
Upon approval of the design plan, we immediately begin the process of ordering your materials and furnishings where we manage the entire process always keeping timeline in mind. We manage all logistical concerns including all freight, customs clearance, and brokerage throughout the Caribbean.
Once materials are purchased and we are given the go ahead to begin construction or renovation, we maintain all oversight of the project in its duration, coordinate with contractors and other vendors, and ensure the design is executed well and according to the plan. We are available and on call to address any concerns on the project site as needed. Throughout the entirety of the project we are constantly evaluating the progress, assessing the effectiveness of the design and making any necessary adjustments.
Phase 5: White Glove Handling and Staging
We are now out of the construction/renovation phase and we can begin to bring the design together and to its completion. Our team will oversee and execute fully the installation of all furnishings and accents with the utmost attention to detail. We can always guarantee a tastefully completed project ready for you to fall in love with!
If you can't describe what you are
doing as a process, you don't know
