Schematic Design

Architecture Process: Phase Two

Following an approval of the broad concepts presented during Phase 01, our team will refine the massing of the home. The schematic design process will shape the residence’s overall form and flow while developing a workable set of floor plans. These drawings will define room sizes and call out locations of significant utilities and amenities. At the same time, the exterior elevations of the project are developed to the point of producing a detailed rendering of the residence.


A second diagrammatic presentation will reintroduce the client to the proposed project solutions and further explain how we arrived at the massing and aesthetics of the project. Additionally, the client can expect to see floor plans, black and white vignettes (showing various highlights of the design) and renderings of the proposed design.


Since the schematic design phase concludes with renderings, it is important that we have a strong understanding of your aesthetic preferences before proposing exterior material selections. While this is often understood from conversations during the first phase, sometimes it takes a bit more time. If this is the case, we will present you with a presentation of project references to comment on. Studying these precedents is a quick way for us to understand your personal preferences.
