Process for Architectural Design
At this preliminary stage of design, the client is asked general questions such as what type of home they are looking for, how many bedrooms, bathrooms, optional rooms, outdoor living, budget etc.
When designing a luxury custom home, the vision is an integral part of the design. The client will upload pictures to the project management software showing what style they like, details, interior details, elevations etc.
Floor Plan Schematic
Schiano Development will then draw a ﬂoor plan schematic showing the main architectural details such as window sizes, door sizes, ceiling height, and general furniture layout. The ﬂoor plan will also be drawn on the lot to show how the house ﬁts on the lot with the setbacks of the property.
After approval of the ﬂoor plan schematic, Schiano Development will then develop the exterior elevations and present it in 2d and 3d. The software they use allows the client to see the house from all all angles along with utilizing manufacturer selections such as Benjamin Moore, Certainteed etc, therefore given the client a feel for how the house will look in reality.
