Our Process

1 Design Studio strives to create successful interior design solutions for a select group of clients by listening, collaborating, and through strategic planning; achieving measurable goals.

We provide attention to detail and collaboration with our clients, architects & engineers and construction team.

Whether the scope includes an individual space, the beginning of multiple locations, we can create a corporate ambiance that incorporates your brand and overall strategy.  If a prototype design is desired, we can develop a standards’ or a “kit of parts” that is scalable and can be incorporated into multiple locations.

1 Design Studio can also help with residential projects ranging from one room to many. No job is too large or small!

Our integrity is core to our process that will guide you through these steps to reach our common goal.

When beginning a project, a good foundation is necessary to determine what to design both in look and size. From the largest projects to the smallest projects, this foundation is necessary to determine the function of the space and maximize the efficiency.

Gathering information and data about your project prior to getting started is paramount. Before drawing anything, we need to understand the desired outcome, overall look and feel of the space along with the size of the area in order to incorporate both present and future growth.

During this discovery phase, we will work with your team to create the ideal finished product. The functionality and efficiency of each space should be determined in order to meet the needs of the consumers and the employees. While developing the layout, we will aim to create a cross-department synergy to allow for a collaborative feel, while creating maximum efficiency and optimal traffic flow.

Conceptual Design

The initial design is the time to make modifications to the design and verify all the needs have been met. Several options might be provided to help narrow down the design direction. We will develop inspirational concepts to meet your needs within an appropriate budget direction.

Once the concept is approved, the design development phase can begin. At this step in the design, actual materials, finishes and furniture selections are provided in order to understand the feel of the space. Budget information is also provided.

Construction Documents

In order to build the space, final construction documents are completed to add the detail to construct the space. Actual finish locations and millwork drawings are completed to finalize the design.

Construction Administration

During the construction of the project, visits to the jobsite and answering questions along with submittal approvals in necessary for a project success. If challenges arise, we can be responsive to the owner and construction team to collaborate on solutions to resolve the issues.

Furniture Procurement & Install Action
