I appreciated the vision for different options and attention to all details. Our communication and response time was excellent. It was a seamless project from my end and I couldn't be happier with the results. I have recommended EVIA Studio to others who have admired my project. More...

Q&A

Creating spaces that are healthy, happy, and a beautiful reflection of the people who occupy them. We love learning all the little details about our clients and designing specifically for their unique needs, habits, and preferences.

I've always done things a little differently, believing in delivering value over all else to clients, and am always improving my process and find new ways to provide that value. After practicing in diverse roles and for world renown teams, I felt ready to build a team of my own with a mission to create resilient homes that care for current and future generations.

Our process is a unique blend of understanding and designing for your needs and delivering above and beyond what you knew you wanted by drawing on our diverse expertise. We're transparent, communicate clearly and consistently, and only want the best for you and our world.

Services

This pre-design phase is often left out of other professional's services, but it's very important to the process! During research + visioning we dig into understanding everything about your needs, wishlist, how you'll use the spaces, the project parameters, circulation planning, performance goals, price range, site history and qualities, etc. in order to develop the project's vision and story. This guides the entire project to be sure we always have sight of what's most important to you and your property.

Rather than separating out the design process into microphases whose definitions are less clear since the wide-spread adoption of BIM, we blend conception, iteration, and develop into one. Considering both the hyper-technical details as well as the big-picture story and vision at once gives allows us to better identify opportunities or challenges early on. Additionally, we believe in including all design, engineering, and construction parties as early in the design process as possible so that all considerations are incorporated from the beginning (saving headaches down the road when critical pieces weren't originally considered).

During construction assurance, we develop and monitor all things necessary to be sure your project is built right, on time, and on budget. We create all the documents for required permits and manage the approvals process with the local municipality. Our construction documents go above and beyond dated, industry-standard set of plans because we know we can deliver a better, clearer, more thorough way to communicate with the construction team so they really understand how and what to build. The build crews love it because there are fewer unknowns, less confusion, and they're better able to plan ahead, and it saves you from costly delays, clarifications, and corrections due to omitted or unclear documents. Finally, we're highly collaborative with the construction team and maintain close contact throughout the build to be sure we're working as a team with your best interests in mind.

Most architects end their relationship with you when construction is complete (and many cut out before it even begins!), but we know that there's still a little tweaking and adjusting to be done once you move in to make sure everything is just right. Our adaptive tuning service is our commitment to you and our work - we aren't finished until everything is correct, working smoothly, and performing as well as or better than we planned. We also like to make complimentary check-ins periodically to make sure you're happy and see if there's anything we can help with.
