While our work naturally reflects your lifestyle, budget, and special considerations, it is the uniqueness and natural palette of your site that informs our design direction. With all this is mind, we create the unique living spaces through our evolving interpretation of tropical modernism.

The outcome is a masterfully balanced expression of physical structure and place that underlines the extraordinary experience of living in your creatively crafted sanctuary and architectural work of art.

Conceptual Design

The start of our working relationship, we listen intently to your preferences and see your culture, lifestyle, and life stage as context to brainstorm aesthetics and layout ideas. The site visit is where emotional and rational meet, as we draw inspiration from the surroundings and consider the unique challenges and opportunities the site presents.

Schematic Design

The schematic design process is where ideas move from raw to refine as we progress as a team through early concepts and iterations. Presenting our primary options starts the review process with you, where the ultimate schematic design takes shape.

Design Development

Here, design meets mechanics: the layout of air conditioning, the flow of plumbing and electrical, and specific recessed lighting factors. These considerations funnel into modeling, spatial planning, architectural lighting, and equipment/appliance placements, which inform construction.

Construction Documentation

All of the project specifications, calculations, notes, plans, elevations, schedules, and engineering details are laid out and constantly referenced. These documents inform the Permit Set and ensure codes are followed.

Construction Administration

From initial bids through completion, we monitor the work performed by contractors and vendors during the course of the project with tight communication and regular, careful site inspections.
