Passion + Perspective

    The placement of building additions is tested early in schematic design. Here the design team is testing a number of key programmatic arrangements for the client's review.

    Once the general location of the addition is decided, a exercise that we call "blocking and stacking" is performed on the building. Blocking and Stacking helps answer the questions of building height, size and proportion.

    Projects are studied both in three dimensions and in two dimensions. Elevation studies are often used to finalize the exterior material composition, window placement and scale.

Not only did the design team create a facility that is state-of-the art, they were able to communicate and meet the complex needs of all parties involved.
