The sketch scheme stage follows on and forms part of the development of the project brief.
Taking a detailed brief is an important first step for every project as it identifies your aims and objectives, your essential requirements and the budget limitations. In addition to the essentials you may have a "wish list" that will personalise the scheme, all of this forms part of the brief. Working closely together we will interpret your brief to produce sketch proposals that will give you a pictorial image of how the building might look.
We endeavour to interpret your brief with several outline sketches. Typically our sketches consist of plans and elevations drawn to scale. Often we can see several different designs and layouts that meet your brief; we will guide you through the alternatives, discussing the pros and cons. In the process we might take parts you like from one and join it to parts you like in another to find your preferred solution.
In most cases we will prepare a budget estimate based on a final sketch scheme.
