Traditionally architects see themselves at the top of the triangle, the consultants in the middle and the client at the bottom. At Tarchitects we have inverted these traditional roles. We understand that in order to provide the best of services and end-product, the architect must fully engage the client in order to understand the parameters of the project from the client and stakeholders' perspective. It's not the architect who holds all of the answers; it's the "proficient architect" who understands that he or she holds the key to unlocking the solutions to the problems, and that the proper combination of solutions are triggered by the architect's engagement with the stakeholder/s.
Tarchitects llc will conduct a design consultation to ascertain the scope of the project and its complete program. Tarchitects llc will survey the facilities and site for measurements. Tarchitects will translate the captured measurements into computer generated drawings and models that will be used for the base for design (site).
During this phase of the project Tarchitects will present the overall design intent captured through the design consultation, and the program provided by the client. These concepts will be communicated via drawings, computer animations and/or physical models.
At the end of schematic design a benchmark will be set to finalize the overall design strategy. At this point Design Development will begin and Tarchitects will start to finalize structural components and systems, and establish material selections as well as other aspects that will formalize the final design. An internal code review will also be conducted in this phase of design. During this phase another benchmark will be set for a design presentation by Tarchitects with the client.
This is the phase that will produce the final documents for construction. How the building is built structurally, and exactly how the building responds to the elements of whether are good examples of what is finalized in detailed drawings within this phase of the design process.
