Since 1986, our expertise lies in tailor-made architectural design. Our primary objective is to enrich people's interactions with the spaces where they devote a significant portion of their lives, be it private residences or public establishments, while prioritizing environmental sustainability. From initial concepts to finished structures, we undertake the entire process of transforming your vision into reality. Additionally, we manage all the intricate tasks related to permits and licenses.
As an architectural firm, our endeavor is to adhere to the principles of functionality, aesthetics, economy, outcomes, and the environment. By embracing these values, we aim to deliver optimal outcomes for all stakeholders involved in the project.
During the project inception stage at our architectural firm, we engage in in-depth discussions with our clients. We explore their project vision, budget, site considerations, functionality, legal issues, timelines, and our fees. This allows us to advise them on the best way forward. We strive to understand their goals, functional requirements, and desired outcomes. We also discuss the budget to develop a design strategy within the allocated resources. Evaluating the project site helps us shape the design based on its characteristics and legal restrictions. We work closely with clients to identify the necessary spaces and activities the building should accommodate. Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements is crucial. Establishing project timelines and milestones ensures realistic expectations. The project inception stage sets the foundation for a successful architectural project, guiding subsequent design and development phases.
During the detail design phase, we create fully detailed drawings for construction purposes. The specific types of drawings required depend on the project but typically include architectural, structural, electrical, and mechanical drawings. Additional drawings such as interior design and landscaping plans may also be included if needed.
Architectural drawings form the foundation, providing detailed layouts, dimensions, and finishes. Structural drawings outline the building's structural elements to ensure stability and compliance. Electrical drawings cover power distribution, lighting, and outlets, while mechanical drawings focus on HVAC and plumbing systems. Interior design drawings capture specific details like finishes and furniture layout. Landscaping plans guide outdoor space development. These detailed drawings serve as instructions for the construction team, subcontractors, and suppliers. They ensure accuracy and consistency throughout the construction process, resulting in a successful realization of the design.
In the scheme design phase, we translate your vision into initial sketches that provide a clear picture of the building's appearance, functionality, construction costs, materials, and site orientation. We prioritize your satisfaction, ensuring that you are completely happy with the design before proceeding. This phase allows for open communication and collaboration, as we welcome your feedback and make necessary adjustments. By involving you in the design process, we aim to create a scheme that aligns with your vision and meets your functional requirements. Once you are fully satisfied with the scheme design, we can proceed to the next phase, which involves developing detailed drawings, obtaining approvals, and preparing for the construction phase.
In the post-contract phase, after completing all necessary drawings and calculations, we assist you in selecting a contractor, either directly or through a tendering process. We handle all paperwork, permits, and registrations required for the construction to begin smoothly. Once the necessary arrangements are in place, we provide construction supervision to ensure the building is constructed according to the intended design. Our role is to oversee the construction process from start to finish, ensuring that the final result aligns with the initial vision and specifications. We work closely with the contractor and coordinate with various stakeholders to ensure a successful and completed building that meets your expectations.
Dynamic Team Collaboration
Our team comprises of skilled professionals including in-house architects, interior designers, site supervisors, and project managers. To cater to the specific requirements of each project and its physical location, we collaborate with external experts such as engineers, surveyors, quantity surveyors, and other relevant consultants. The composition of the team is tailored to meet the demands of the project at hand.
