Native Ink Architects offer a variety of services executed by our talented professionals. Our goal is to be exclusive and visionary in our designs and client experience. We provide complete solutions from inception to reality.

PLANNING & DESIGN

Defined along the project brief taken from the client and the parameters influenced by the site restrictions, general design ideas, or concepts, are presented and developed with client feedback into schematic design, which provides a rough sketch of how the building will be organized and what the building will look like. This process ensures that the building requirements are clearly understood well before construction documents are produced. During this highly interactive phase, an architect helps the client make the most informed decision possible from the very beginning of the project. The architect can also help the client identify opportunities, cost savings, and extra value in the project of which he or she may not have fully been aware. 3d visuals used at this stage assists design and planning decisions to be made.

VISUALISATION

3D VISUALISATION or CGI (computer generated images) is a process of creating high quality graphics converting the planning into a 3d form giving an actual sense of what the actual building may look like, both for the exteriors and interiors.

3D virtual reality visualisation virtually encompasses one within the actual design. Here a true sense of the design is experienced, in the sense of a virtual dimension giving one a virtual experience of the design of the project before any building commences.

INTERIORS

Basic interior fit-out in the form of design and colours to walls, feature walls, ceiling design and tiling layouts are presented and applied in complying with the overall design. In conjunction with specialized interior consultants more detailed interior architecture can be completed.

LANDSCAPE DESIGN

Landscape design focuses on both the integrated master landscape planning of a property and the specific garden design of landscape elements and plants within it. Further collaboration with landscape architects can be done with designs requiring the need for detailed landscape architecture.

CONSULTATION ADMINISTRATION

Consultations/ contract administration involves the architect acting as the agent of the client  in various capacities during the design and construction process to protect the interests of the client, such as assisting with negotiating with contractors for bids, and verifying that contractor constructs the building as designed.

DRAUGHTING & DOCUMENTATION

Plans, elevations, and other drawings are refined to produce a set of drawings and specifications that will be used to erect the building, as well as meet regulations of the local authorities’ approval. The architect works with the client to select appropriate materials and finishes to ensure a high-quality final building.

The architect will coordinate with other design consultants, such as civil, structural, or mechanical engineers, that may be needed for the project, depending on its complexity or as required by law. The drawings and specifications represent a legal definition of what the contractor will build, along with other documents produced during bidding, known collectively as the contract documents.

A complete, full set of construction documents helps minimize unforeseen problems and cost overruns during construction.
