Schematic Design

Architecture is a process that takes big picture ideas and concepts and details them until they become a building. The Schematic Design phase is the second step. This step includes defining goals and project requirements with the client, which in turn defines the program of the project at a higher level. This is the point when vision is developed, space is allocated to programs, character features are defined, and site elements are located. Once this big picture is developed then the next phase of design development can begin.
