Design is a Process

The art of a good design is not just about a designer going to the drawing board and creating something beautiful, but it is also about maintaining a delicate balance during all phases of design and construction. It takes a great amount of talent, knowledge, research, coordination, experience and responsibility to be able to carry the design successfully from a concept to the end of construction. A good design should involve a collaborative process working with the client and different people such as builders, engineers, vendors, and many others.

Whether the project is small or large, Mitra takes great joy and pride to pull it all together for you and will suggest a process and create a design that is best suited to your specified design needs. Ultimately, a very comprehensive architectural and interior design drawing package will be produced to ensure that the project is built successfully and according to the design intent.
