Schematic Design1.The goal of the schematic design (SD) is to clearly define design with a comprehensive scope, budget, and schedule before the project is submitted for approval.2.During this time, the architect reviews and creates a detailed program with the client in order to define his needs and objectives, such as size, function, and the relationships between spaces, character, and image. 3
Schematic Design3.Prior to the initial design concepts, architects begin by gathering and analyzing information and performing all of the work necessary to design a project.4.For instance, the Architect prepares a series of rough plans, known as schematics, which show the general arrangement of rooms and of the building on the site. 4
Schematic Design5.The next step utilizes the landscape consultant’s input where the architect analyzes the site and determines the best placement of the project to ensure the best placement to capture views and sunlight. 6.During this stage, the architect usually establishes the construction scope, budget, and schedule.7.Models and/or illustrations are prepared to help visualize the project as necessary.
