The creation phase involves building a relationship with our client in order to better understand their needs and go about actualizing it. This then leads to a basic idea creation about the task ahead. It involves asking for the input from the customer first, following it up with a feedback so that the professional opinion is taken into context and then asking for the proposed solution in light of the feedback. The process familiarizes the customer with our working procedures and what lies in store for the next few phases. This then forms the basis of all the future phases of the design.
The planning phase concerns with actual, tangible ideas based on the creation phase. In the planning phase, an outline of the price considerations, suppliers and specific architectural designs are ascertained. The former two depend on the architectural design, which itself goes back to the creation phase based on the customers’ needs. The planning phase involves a rigorous search for suppliers, depending on costs, which further leads to a budget design. Communication and feedback cycles are a vital element in this phase.
The execution phase is based entirely on the planning phase. It requires a call on everything decided in the planning phase, from budget to supplier names to designs, to materialize everything. However, no plan is fool proof and complications in the plan are inevitable. These complications make it necessary to improvise instantly. This
improvisation is often approved by the customer where the changes are major. The execution phase is also the longest lasting phase of our entire process since everything builds up to it. The execution phase involves the most number of actors and requires immense involvement from each stakeholder. Simultaneous quality control is also a vital
The process does not simply end once the execution phase ends. There are often minor changes that the customer requires after the execution which are catered to. However, another entire phase by the name of Interior Design. This phase involves focusing on the internal design of a space already constructed. Interior design transforms a rather boring enclosed space into an interesting lively space. This phase focuses especially on the business and brand needs in terms of colour schemes. it also involves several factors in the psychological contexts, especially when it comes to office design.
