Renderings and Drawings
In order to accomplish this, it is important to know how you move through your home or workspace in everyday life, and which items you need to have in it. This approach goes beyond selecting a wall paint color or a sofa; it’s about creating a vision. A well thought out spatial arrangement is timeless and enduring, and our hope is to create interiors that will work now and in the future.
We begin with an in-depth analysis of you and your space so we may tell your story by putting together elements and pieces. Different spaces suit different people and we are adept at defining areas for activity and areas for rest to give definition to each part of the room. Electrical layout and lighting placement is a very important part to get right and is wholly determined by the clients lifestyle and work habits. We know how to apply design principles to create a perception, for instance, of extending or reducing the proportion of the room.
Clients come to us thinking that they need more space, more storage, more of everything. We try to gently guide them toward simple solutions with breathing room. Juxtaposition is often is the answer: spatial arrangement of proportions and patterns so that the eye can appreciate the differences; or “borrowing” space from an adjoining room by using the same flooring materials, so that the room appears larger.
We will render your plan and its elements using state of the art design software, or simply cut paper shapes for size and placement in collage form. With a background in Fine Arts, we also like to draw by hand, visualizing your space and working out the best possible arrangement of furniture and accessories. All in all, this design process to ensure circulation is easy and economical, that color and lighting create the illusions we want, and that the clutter is edited.
