Initial Consultation 

The design process begins with an initial consultation to discuss the project in more detail. You will be asked to provide any initial documents you have available (such as existing floor plans, photographs etc.) and you will be provided with an estimate of hours for the services to be rendered. 


TRACE works with residential interior design clients on a per hour design basis. Given the custom nature of each project, the scope of work and size of the property, the amount of time to complete each project varies greatly.

Concept Development

In this phase the project brief is developed to include a comprehensive program for all the requirements, needs and preferences for the design of the space. Initial research is completed on the existing site, materials, processes and concepts that will best fit the project. Initial ideas are explored and developed through different visual means. 
The information gathered is presented in a Concept Presentation to begin to establish a design direction for the project. This typically includes inspiration imagery, color and material direction, installation concepts, sketches and spatial diagrams. 



Design Development & Drafting

The concepts presented in the previous phase are then further developed and refined through the creation of presentation drawings, 3D models, sourcing and budgeting final materials/fixtures/furnishings, researching and specifying the best installation methods for the project that will be presented for approval in a series of Design Presentations


Once the designs and presentation drawings have been approved, the ID AutoCAD drawing set is finalized to be sent to contractors for bidding and construction*.
