Intimate Design

Mixing it up:

Most meetings are held in our conference room.

Meeting at the designer’s desk allows for on-the-fly changes with Chief Architect design software. Floor plans are easily converted to 3-dimensional perspectives to help visualize position and scale.

Our magnetic whiteboard has a projector for an enhanced experience of our interactive design process.
