Always an exciting beginning, the start of something brand new with a collaborative effort. Discussing the wants, needs and preferred aesthetic. Establishing a brief and creating a proposal.
SKETCHES AND IDEAS
A pencil and paper is still my favourite way of communicating and exploring different ideas quickly.
Each new project has an abundance of potential outcomes. Navigating that journey and refining ideas through filters of form, function and aesthetic all start with the the very first stroke of a pencil.
Once an initial concept is landed we move into accurate 3D modeling and rendering.
This quickly brings the concept to life and enables clear visualisation of the design itself and the context of the space wher eit will sit.
Working on paper and with computer aided design makes it easier to think three dimensionally but there's no substitute to the real thing.
We often build parts of a component or even the entire piece full scale to understand proportion, tolerances and usability of a project before starting manufacturing.
This can be the crucial proof of the design and is still the best tool for getting a true understanding of how the final piece will look and feel.
Confirmation of the completed design fit with the correct materials and details for the piece of mind and keep everyone on the same page before production.
Detailed drawings with fully explained resolutions to joints, construction and features. These drawings serve as the contract between us and the craftsman, where detail is imperative and background knowledge in material processes is paramount.
Having a background in cabinet making has made this process possible and enjoyable, without hours of conversation and collaboration to create something truly unique and well-considered.
Having a background in cabinet making paired with the long established relationships with local craftsman make the manufacturing process more love than loath.
Working with real materials always has its challenges, with each individual piece of timber having its embedded lineage twisting and shaping its new form.
After arranging delivery to your location we will install and fit the project into your site. Once you've signed off on the finish and detailing we will finally place our insignia on the project completing the work. We hope the conversation and collaboration will continue from there in new ways.
