PROGRAMMING AND SPACE PLANNING
FURNISHINGS INVENTORY & PROCUREMENT
Programming is a analytical and systematic process through which the project scope is determined. Goals are outlined and client needs are identified and prioritized; constraints and/or opportunities are also discussed. Knowledge of space standards help determine an optimal program, leading to the most successful, high-quality design.
A survey of existing conditions is used as a basis for developing a cohesive set of architectural design drawings – typically including floor plans, elevations, sections, assembly details, and product specifications. These drawings define the project scope, establish quality expectations, and act as a valuable visualization tool.
Existing architectural features and furnishings and those the client wishes to carry into the new design are determined. Followed with a space planning effort, it becomes apparent what supplemental pieces are needed. Then, products are researched, options are proposed, and often designer-client shopping trips take place.
As a liaison between the client and contractor, ADORNA Design ensures that the execution of construction is in accordance with the project scope and quality expectations as defined in the design drawings. Review of subcontractor shop drawings is also integral to this effort. Questions from either client or contractor are addressed within a timely manner.
When a client is seeking decorating expertise within a short timeframe, ADORNA Design can makeover a space in two-to-seven days. Utilizing existing pieces and supplementing with new, ADORNA Design charges an hourly rate with a cap to provide furniture layouts, style accessories, and go on shopping trips. All receipts are procured to the client.
ADORNA Design partners with homeowners and real estate experts during the listing process. Through reconfiguring furnishings and recommending new pieces, ADORNA Design highlights key attributes, maximizes space, and creates a neutral décor that appeals to a wide breadth of prospective buyers. A paint color consultation is also offered.
