My way of working
The designing process starts with a list of wishes.
The next step is the survey of the environment: soil type, wind pattern, neighbourhood, roads, vegetation and buildings. All this information will help to estimate the amount of work and materials and will help the tendering process.
The next step will be a sketch, digitally made with Vectorworks. 3D models will be made to clarify the views in a more real life. The final step is the Masterplan with all the individual plants, constructions, etc in place in their right dimensions.
