The Architectural Design Process
Every construction or renovation project needs an experienced designer to initiate a plan. Here’s what our architectural design process entails:
- Project inception: This is where the planning begins. We meet with you to learn about your project needs, goals, and ideas.
- Schematic design: Following your initial consultation, we’ll help you conceptualize a design into construction drawings and schematics. These will become the blueprints for your project, a key step in making your dream home a reality.
- Design development: Once you approve one of our designs, we discuss the scope and quality of the finished product in greater detail. Cost projections come into play, helping you determine what adjustments may be needed to make the project conform to your budget.
With the design process complete, construction can begin! Our team will expertly translate the design from paper to reality.

What are three popular styles of architecture?
There are dozens of architectural styles. Three of the most recognizable include:
- Contemporary architecture: This blanket term comprises a range of present-day building styles. They often appear radically different from one another, but they share certain characteristics, such as clean lines, open floor plans, synthetic materials, and large windows.
- Victorian architecture: Homes in this style are marked by extravagant ornamental details. You can spot a Victorian home from the exterior by its steeply pitched roof, ornate gables, geometric windows, and brick façades.
- Craftsman architecture: This style is characterized by handcrafted designs and natural materials, including stone, brick, wood, and metal. The architecture is symmetrical and low to the ground, with low-pitched roofs, divided-lite windows, and wide overhangs supported by prominent columns.
