Our Superior Architectural And Interior Design Services

Build your dream house with the help of Rowland + Broughton. R+B architects and designers work on a wide range of services that begin with an analysis of the project site, zoning, and code requirements to build within the project’s programming and parameters. Our architects design group works closely with our clients to collaborate and ensure submittals are presented to increase the likelihood of approval so that the project can remain on schedule. We specialize in providing architectural and interior design services to clients seeking innovative and functional spaces.

Our award-winning architectural and interior design services process provides an exciting journey that utilizes creative problem-solving practices to assess a client’s goals and transform their inspiration, ideas, and visions into a reality. There are five phases in this process that help to guide the architectural designers and clients from the initial meeting through to the completion of their home. The five phases of the architectural design services include:

Programming or Pre-design Phase

The architect will define the architectural programming of the project’s values, goals, and needs for the new home or building to establish the vision for the space(s). An in-depth client questionnaire is completed at this time so that the scope, features, purpose, and functionality will align with the client’s lifestyle. During this phase, you will be discussing the overall conceptual design of your ideal mountain home.

Schematic Design Phase

The architect will begin to give shape to the vision of the project through drawings and illustrations for the owner’s review. These are often done initially via hand sketches and then moved into a 3D software that enables efficient alterations that are effectively communicated to each client.

Our architect will establish a clear decision-making process with you at this time. The conceptual design that is crafted during this phase will start to form the schedule and construction budget requirements. Once this phase is completed, then the project will begin the community review process led by the architect.

Design Development Phase

A thoughtful extension of SD, the Aspen architect will build upon the approved SD package so that more detailed information can be obtained and layered in by consultants and team members as the systems, preliminary structure, material selection, and detailing will be coordinated and enhanced during this phase. Our architect will prepare floor plans and building elevations for initial review and approval. At this time, 3-D drawings and concept renderings created by the architect will help the client to better understand the client’s commitment to the design before moving to the next phase.

Construction Design Phase

During this part of the design process, the architect will prepare computer drawings that are suitable for permit submission and project construction. These construction documents (CDs) are instrumental in the efficient construction of a home or larger project. This phase requires very thorough coordination with consultants to ensure all items are properly relayed in the construction documents.

Construction Administration Phase

This phase is often referred to as Construction Observation and ensures that the project’s integrity is upheld until it is completed. Our architect will maintain weekly or bi-monthly site visits. These visits establish accountability while presenting opportunities for last-minute (hopefully minimal) changes to be made in the field to meet the client’s needs for each project.

We hope that this overview of our architectural and interior design services has provided enough information to help you feel more prepared to embark on the exciting journey of an architectural design project.
