AO provides the following services beyond typical Architecture and Interior Layout / Design, including;
Current modeling platforms allow for the direct export of design to fabrication via CNC, waterjet, and robotic fabrication. This allows for greater customization and systemization and more precise coordination with fabrication experts.
From conception to fabrication of hand crafted furniture.
Fully parametric modeling for precise 3D printed prototyping of parts and assemblies.
Coordination and development of streetscape and campus style masterplans based upon stakeholder goals, project context, regional history and identity.
SITE SELECTION/SITE ANALYSIS
Determining the appropriate site requirements based upon project type and client operational requirements. The architect can offer analysis of a sites buildability and potential for expansion. Early envelope analysis and area calculations can determine the project size, scope and scale.
Investigation of local zoning restrictions to determine allowable building heights, floor area ratios, allowable building types, and maximum parking requirements.
PROJECT PHASING/FUND RAISING/IMAGERY
Development of conceptual design and renderings to help clients raise money and awareness of their projects.
NEEDS ASSESSMENT/WORKFLOW DESIGN
Analyze client current interests, growth expectations and workflows to develop efficient expansion strategies in line with client values and identity.
The shaping of spaces which trigger specific physiological responses based upon sensory stimuli. Applies to creating memorable impressions for workspaces, commercial spaces such as retail and restaurants, and residential projects.
SIGNAGE AND WAYFINDING
We believe good architecture and interior design can help guide people through your space and act as both identification and directional aids. Sometimes a little extra guidance is needed. We will create signage that complements the project’s aesthetic.
We use Building Information Modeling to aid in systems integration, overall project coordination, energy modeling, and cost estimating.
