RDS strives to respect and learn from the natural environment. We visit your Site to learn as much as possible about the unique qualities of each location. Much of the early design process occurs on site and firsthand knowledge is the most valuable. We employ sustainable design strategies and high performance construction techniques to maximize the performance of the project and minimize the impact it generates. Employing appropriate design strategies to buffer local climates coupled with well insulated and tight construction will reduce energy consumption and cost over time.
At Reese Design Studio we believe that a successful project requires effective communication. We believe strongly in an open, collaborative, and informed design process. RDS seeks to develop effective communication systems to organize a design team that generates the best possible end result for our Clients.
There are steps along the design process that are common to most projects. The early phases of Programming and Schematic Design are much like a discussion to get your ideas out onto paper. The later phases of Design Development and the preparation of Construction Documents might take more actual time, but require less input from the Client. Construction Administration during the construction phase requires a great deal of teamwork and cooperation between Team members. Reese Design Studio works closely with our Clients and Team members during each phase to ensure success.
