PATTERN OF LIFE® REVEALS ITSELF IN PREFERENCES, ROUTINES AND WAYS OF BEING EVERY DAY.

There’s an art to uncovering these patterns and incorporating them into the design. As a team, we have no prescribed notions about how any client’s home will be designed. The design grows from the homeowner’s insights, comments and feelings.

We think of it as a 3 phase process:

Inspiration
Design
Lifestyle

PHASE 1: Inspiration, A WAY OF BEING

PHASE 1: Inspiration, A WAY OF BEING

Design inspiration is often triggered by intangible nostalgic associations in memory and informed by past experiences that have shaped a person’s way of being.

There is no right or wrong inspiration or way of being. These elements are unique to each person. They are the essence of where we begin a conversation with a homeowner as architects and designers. What we collectively learn about a homeowner’s inspiration and a way of being at the project onset sets up the following phases in the Pattern of Life process

PHASE 2: A DESIGN REVEALED

PHASE 2: A DESIGN REVEALED

Creating a language, imagery and story informed by these associations, can illustrate possibilities, options, directions that translate in to design in a tangible way.

Without a process that understands the homeowner’s patterns and preferences, critical design choices are uninformed or stylized to meet someone else’s predetermined design. The Pattern of Life process ensures the homeowner has a voice and language to communicate. In this way, the design reveals itself throughout the process.

PHASE 3: A PATTERN OF LIFE

PHASE 3: A PATTERN OF LIFE

A successful project supports a homeowner’s pattern of life — clear in its order, efficient in its function and alive with the spirit of that first spark of memory and associations.

In the finished project, if the thread of inspiration and way of being has been pulled through, the homeowner will realize the benefits. They’ll feel as though their home has been created just for them. They’ll feel connected to the process and validated in experiencing daily how their home supports their way of being. Their home will reflect and inspire their continued wellbeing.
