Learning about your preferences on a functional and aesthetic level is the first but necessary stage in creating a conceptual design and then the working design.
On the functional level, we learn about your expectations concerning the purpose and functions of the house and its individual rooms. We pay attention to the habits of the household members, their favourite ways of spending free time or relaxing. Knowing what function a given space will perform, we can fully exploit its potential.
On the level of aesthetics, we focus on our favourite colours, desired leitmotifs, materials, textures, and sometimes the preferred interior design style. Thanks to that the design will be close to your ideas and expectations.
Having learned about your needs and expectations, we create an interior design. First a conceptual design is created, i.e. general design guidelines, followed by a working design, which includes all the details necessary for the construction teams to carry out the work.
n the conceptual design you will find the functional layout of the interior, i.e. projections with wall layout and visualisations of all the rooms. We often extend this stage by adding such elements of the working design as: electrical, teletechnical, water and sewage and central heating guidelines. Drawings of this type are used for the so-called tenant changes. The standard conceptual design is a general interior design, focussing largely on functional solutions and the general character of the interior.
In the working design, in turn, you will find detailed solutions for the whole project. There is a selection of finishing materials: lighting and furniture, as well as fit-out: ceramics, fittings, tiles, materials for the walls and floors. In the working design you will also find more general technical drawings (such as those mentioned in the extended scope of the conceptual design), but also some more detailed ones, i.e.: views of all the walls, stucco elements drawn in detail or the proposed division of floors and plinths. Additionally, the working design includes guidelines for the doors, wall painting schemes, and drawings for the carpenter in case of custom-made furniture. The material specification together with technical drawings make up a design book, on the basis of which the contractors carry out the design of the house, interior or commercial space. In the working design, each detail is minutely described in terms of execution, aesthetics and functionality.
The most beautiful stage of creation, in which we see how the things presented on paper turn into reality. The architect’s supervision aims to ensure that every detail designed by us is faithfully executed. We also offer coordination of the whole construction project – for those who prefer to devote their time to something else.
The architect’s supervision makes it possible to ensure that everything included in the design will be implemented by the construction teams with due attention to every detail. That is why we often visit construction sites to make sure that the new house or flat is built in strict compliance with the design.
Coordination of the entire construction project is an ideal solution for those who have little time or prefer to use it for something other than liaising with the construction teams. Such coordination means that all issues connected with the work schedule, logistics and day-to-day problems arising during implementation are solved by us and not you. The coordination option allows investors to visit the construction site whenever they want, and not when the contractor so requires.
