The client wants to build their dream home, with the thought they have no particular type or design in mind. The design briefing and process starts with understanding the client, their family requirements, needs and inspirations -a ‘wish list’ and is considered within the constraints of the budget and site.
Truth is the client knows what they want, it is the architect’s role to visualise this in the concept design process – First through a conceptual spatial diagram based on a list of spaces and requirements – drafted over a computer scale representation of the site and room sizes with built area, keeping budget in the process.
This diagram shows the flow and interconnection of spaces related to the site
From there floor plans are built in conjunction with the overall sectional heights. Which can quickly be represented in 3d form, if required.
