How experienced is your team?

How do you approach a project?
Our approach is to understand the client’s needs and goals, conduct site analysis, develop conceptual designs, and refine the design through multiple iterations with the client until the final design is achieved.
How do you manage the budget for a project?
We work closely with the client to understand their budget constraints and develop a project plan that meets their goals within their budget. We also provide regular cost estimates throughout the design process to ensure the project stays within budget.
How do you ensure that the final design meets the client's expectations?
We create and agree a design or project brief with the client in the early stages and involve them in regular design reviews and progress meetings to ensure that their expectations are met and any necessary changes are made in a timely manner.
We also design our spaces in 3D and share images. videos and walkthroughs of our designs (Think of it almost like walking through a video game) This gives our client detailed and insightful information including sunlight, the spatial experience in 3D dimensions, furnishings, and interior layouts can all be assessed in 3D dimensions. We have found that not all people can read a 2D design drawing and appreciate space and this is another benefit of working with Cognition.
