How we start...

Designing is not magic or even genius… yes, really!

It takes a great deal of hard work…

someone smart once said that design is 95% perspiration, 5% inspiration.

We think they got that about right.

Inspiration isn’t enough though. Good design is founded on a great deal of experience and knowledge….we like to think we have a fair share of both, but we know where we’re lacking. Engaging others in sharing their knowledge is something we actively pursue and we’re passionate about it.

Commencing our design process, we collect together your thoughts and requirements, and combine them with what We Think. It’s kind of like a grown up show and tell, but in both directions… it’s a conversation. Before really starting to design and perspire, there may be a bit of to and fro clarifying expectations and requirements… don’t worry, we like to exceed your expectations.

We commence each project by exploring a number of alternative possibilities and present them to you to determine what the best and desired strategy is for your project. At Redshift we start by discussing approaches or strategies for the design before we consider style or appearance. These are approaches to dealing with site, your programme or brief, as well as structure, construction, servicing and the like.

From here…

moments of inspiration through sheets of perspiration…

It’s an ongoing and iterative process involving client, consultants, ourselves and other parties such as Council.
