Studio Surface begins the design process with an "ignition" meeting with the client to establish a clear understanding of their specific needs and goals. This phase gives Studio Surface the opportunity to develop a relationship with the client, create a scope of work and set project parameters. We identify the overall look and feel of the spaces taking into account the client's lifestyle and budget. This is also where the high level thinking and creativity take place and the ideas generated in this phase inform the decisions that will become realized in the next phase.
Studio Surface translates the ideas generated in the previous phase, analyzing multiple iterations, into a design plan with a thoughtful and holistic approach. In this creative phase, the project becomes defined - goals, function and aesthetics are applied and graphically depicted through client presentations and construction drawings. Studio Surface drawings are thorough and detailed to ensure a smooth and coordinated project. Studio Surface presentations are fun and dynamic and include a mix of finishes, materials, fabrics, and renderings with a bit of "edge".
During the final phase, Studio Surface manages the project alongside construction to implement our collaborative design. Mixing into the project some custom furniture, fixtures and artwork from a large inventory of artists and artisans we have accrued over the years, Studio Surface creates unique experiences for all of our clients. During the construction of the project, Studio Surface also plans and times the project installation in a manner to coordinate with the projected completion date. Paying close attention to all the details and moving parts, Studio Surface produces truly cohesive and successful designs.
