“All we need is a schematic design and then you just finalize the drawings, right?” The simple answer is yes, that is all we need, but the reality is there are many thousands of decisions to be made from beginning to end.

Many of the best projects come from the exploration along the way.
We don’t just have ideas and draw them;
we discover the right answers as we go.
