DESIGN PROCESS

 

At OSA we believe that the best design process is a mix of the old and the new. All projects still start with a pen and tracing paper as this allows for quick sketching of initial concepts from mind to paper. However the days of large scale hand drafting are behind us and projects quickly progress to digital 2 and 3D drawing. We use an integrated design process (IDP) which integrates all disciplines and building elements into one cohesive digital 3D model. In essence, this model is the complete building in digital form and becomes the basis from which we produce the drawings which will be used to build the home.
