Research & Concept
RIBA Stage 2
Once an understanding of the brief is formed, we carry out research into the physical, natural and historic context of the site. This includes analysis of the local architecture, materials and the natural forms of the area, which aim to embed the proposal within its environment. From this, primary site layouts, physical forms and material pallets can generate. We produce initial research reports, accommodation schedules, precedent studies, conceptual sketches and 3D visualisations to share our thought processes and visions with the client.
