The Design Process
The process of design follows diagrammatic phases. While the information and decisions made in one phase form the basis of the subsequent phases, a design is seldom a direct process. Instead, one typically shifts between phases, allowing modifications of the design.
Drafting and Detailing
This phase runs parallel to the conceptual design phase. Once the size, layout and character of the building and site are fixed, designs of elements such as stairs, cabinetry, fireplaces and built-in furniture begin. Drawings or CAD preparations are created and describe important technical details.
Plans, elevations and sections through the building are developed. Architectural details are combined, and materials are arranged according to the production information. Their strategic placing determines the shape and characteristics of the building.
