Diving in

Now we dive in and begin exploring and shaping the context that forms the foundation of our design process.

The ‘Diving in’ phase consists of two parts.
Firstly we have a thorough chat and develop a statement or series of statements that capture the essence of the life that you are moving towards, in terms of your life on your place.
The second part
is the physical setting; here we tune into the land, its features, and the forces acting upon it. We use a range of methods to gain as complete an understanding of the physical reality of a space as we can.
Once we know
what we have got to work with, where we are headed, and why, we will have a sound foundation to build from.
