Design Methodology

At Black N White House, we crafted a series of process to facilitate the better understanding of our client's overall vision and objectives for their living spaces, and incorporating our design philosophy to the conceptualisation of the design works.

Determine

This process is about information gathering. Each project will kick off with an in-depth discussion to understand the overall vision and objectives of individual client. Depending on the project scope, the discussion will be further developed into discussion on the details of how the living space is to be utilised including discussion on the lifestyles, expectations, demographics and profile of the customers. Customers' needs, their preferences likes and dislikes will be a top priority.

After a detailed briefing session, organized surveys of the project site and an inventory study on the client's existing furniture (if any), will be loaded into the AutoCAD to visualise and develop spatial relationships, space standards and adjacencies. This is what we name it at the Space Planning Stage.

Design

Next on, Design Stage. We present the concept design options such as mood boards, colour themes, materials selections, 3D visuals, sketch perspectives and other necessary design information required to represent the requirements of the brief. This is presented together with all fixtures, fittings, equipment, furniture and finishes with the costs and delivery times.

Development

We conduct regular meetings during the planning stages to develop and agree on the final design before proceeding to prepare area plans, elevations and construction detailing. These may include architectural work and MEPS. Value engineering exercises are also carried out to assess the proposed design solutions, build ability and adaptability.

Progressive meetings are usually conducted on site to allow our project managers to run through the various stages of the project with you. The meeting intervals are project specific to suit the circumstances.

Deliver

We developed formal processes and procedures to ensure all measures have been taken to ensure client's satisfaction. This is the project handover stage.
