Planning is critical. Establishing a doable project scope and understanding all of the affiliated components is the first step of almost any project. Once a plan is agreed upon, we create a layout that meets not only the esthetic needs of the client but the site/structural needs of the building.
Each specification is reviewed for form AND function. Once function and stability of your project is established, we will review each piece of your specification. This includes: material selection, lighting layout, and design and the integration of finishes.
Oversight is critical to any project. Design Works Studio specializes in aligning skilled craftsmen, artisans and vendors with homeowners. This collaboration ensures that the contractor not only understands your budget but also the timeline to execute your project. The proper matching of contractors and homeowners reduces stress, anxiety, and potential mistakes, thus freeing up useful time in the design-build process.
