Listen - Measure - Draw
We begin work by listening to you.
We encourage you to describe the need, the aspiration, the anticipated investment, the time you can devote to the task, and when you expect everything to be completed. We also 'listen' to the site and the adjacent buildings, to the planning authority, to the neighbours and to the context.
We measure what you have...the site, the space you need, and the proposed budget you have to invest. We also measure any constraints the site or context may impose on your proposed outcome.
Then we draw.....by hand and in the computer to visualise the story you have told, to discover ways the project might develop and to check that we have understood you clearly and that we have heard what you said. When we show you the drawings we have made, we listen again to what you have to say, we remeasure and then we draw anew...
