HOW DO I HELP YOU ?

What is the first things that happens when you decide to hire me for a transformation of your home? It is important to get the right architectural idea from the start.

To create an overview, both for myself and for you, I divide a work assignment into four stages. The stages are also useful as a tool to ensure that I put the effort in the right places in order to help you realizing your dream home.

1. KICKSTART

2. ANALYSIS, RESEARCH AND REGISTRATION

3. DISPOSITION AND DESIGN

4. REALIZATION AND IMPLEMENTATION​

1.KICKSTART

Are you dreaming of renovating or changing your existing accommodation  or an upcoming home purchase and have you realized that you need inspiration, overview and clarification. Do you want to make a good start and save time and money later?

I can offer you a kickstart meeting of 2.5 hours undisturbed architectural advice in your home. Together we will define what the assignment consist of. Which design solutions will be able to give you and your family the home you are dreaming of. I will listen to your needs and will give you my input with my clear attitudes to aesthetics and functionality to help you add value to your housing project.  

 

The price for this  Kickstart meeting is 300 CHF excluding VAT.

This amount will be given as a discount if you subsequently decide to use me as a consultant for your project.

2. ANALYSIS, RESEARCH AND REGISTRATION

In the second face it has been decided to use me as a consultant and  we will start with a meeting to talk more about the way you live and identify the issues. I will registrate the rooms and the architecture and will also start the process of writing the building description.

I will then prepare a sketch proposal with plans, sketches, 3D drawings and lots of inspirational photos. The proposal also gives you a taste of materials and color choices. The proposal should then form the basis for the further progress and final design of your home. In this phase it will also be decided how big the scope of work is and you will get a price estimate. Depending on the size of the project, I will either do the project management myself, or outsource project management, the regulatory treatment of the project and the construction management to my skilled partners.

I am working together with and army of local builders, plumbers, electricians etc. as well as Danish craftsmen, who are more than reasonable prized.  

DISPOSITION AND DESIGN

After the sketch proposal and the price estimate have been agreed upon, the actual space planning and the interior design plans can be made. It is in the the third phase, that the concept development as well as the material and  color concept will  be decided. On the basis of your wishes, our talks and the sketch proposal, the lighting, special fixtures, fitted and loose furniture, surfaces etc. will then be implemented in the drawings and we will have meetings, where the design ideas will be presented and discussed. After your approval all items and building materials will be ordered and bought.

Phase three will merge with the fourth phase. Drawings will need to be updated during the fourth phase as corrections, adjustments and  alterations can occur during this period.

REALIZATION AND IMPLEMENTATION

The fourth phase is the last and final stage of the realization of your dream home and the most challenging, where the actual building work/conversion takes place and everything has to be implemented. If I am not doing the project management, I will still have the contact to the builders and the project manager to ensure that everything goes according to plan and I will off course also be on site and have meetings with you to keep you informed and up to date.

Finally when everything is ready, I will hand over the project to you and also make follow up to ensure that your expectations have been fulfilled.
