Introduce. Initiate. Integrate. Innovate.
OPEN COMMUNICATION AND UNDERSTANDING NEEDS
Our process starts with a simple premise – understand our clients, both the culture and environment of their business as well as their architectural needs in terms of function, appearance, ideas, and site specifics.
From the first conversation with Michael E Couture Architect, we'll ask pointed questions to learn not just what kind of construction you want but also who you are. We believe that every Conway project should reflect the collaboration between a property owner, our architectural firm, and the people that will use the space.
For us, starting on the right page hinges heavily on our ability to effectively communicate and gather information about the property in question. Over years, being high-level communicators has been one of our primary calling cards and has led to countless successful projects in the greater Conway area, all delivered with complete satisfaction.
USING EXPERTISE TO SOLVE COMPLEX PROBLEMS
Every project in Conway comes with it's own set of difficulties, many of which are identified in the first stage of our process. Some are small and easy to solve, but others address larger concepts, such as how a new construction will affect an existing area and community. In our Initiate phase, we answer those questions.
Physical inspections of the site help us determine hydrology and infrastructure concerns as well as how the proposed structure will fit into the context of the existing space. Rather than being an eyesore, we want your project to integrate well with its surroundings and create a seamless narrative. We'll also evaluate the environmental impact of the construction at the same time and research how similar projects have dealt with specific issues.
Armed with a valuable collection of data and information, the Michael E Couture Architect team will be able to move forward to the next phase of our process – turning the information into a workable plan using our architectural experience and training.
CONSTRUCTING DETAILED PROJECT PLANS
Few clients come to Michael E Couture Architect with a fine-tuned plan about their project – that's our job. However, with an overarching sense of the project that's desired and complete with our own research and data collection, our multidisciplinary team will start the monumental task of nailing down all the details.
Taking the entire property as a whole, our development of both built elements and outdoor space will occur at the same time, creating a baseline impression where we're able to judge the environment and atmosphere of the project with detailed plans that both nail down specifics and inform the overarching feel of the space.
The goal of this stage of the process is to create a unified vision of what's expected from the project, from the perspective of the owner, those that will use the space, and our own design knowledge. Our plans will incorporate this overall vision of the property down to the last detail.
BUILDING THE FUTURE WITH OUR CURRENT DESIGNS
The vast majority of architectural innovation is in response to clients, coming from dialogue about how we improve standard design ideas, building techniques, and material use. In presenting our plans to the client, we're opening a dialogue to discover these innovations together as a collaboration that is based on both form and function.
From bringing in different construction styles to meet the spatial needs of a singular room to using our landscape architecture skills to develop increased function from existing outdoor spaces, every innovation we create is designed to be in harmony with the overall structure and how it will be used.
While innovation may start with Michael E Couture Architect and our clients, it extends through the entire team of people that work together to make the project a reality. By partnering with local contractors and other specialists that are open to exciting new ideas, we're able to introduce innovative ideas while staying completely within the original spirit of the project.
With a focus on local architecture and construction, we're available to serve clients from the entire Conway region.
