My Approach

My Approach

I believe in making the most out of every opportunity, be it design or otherwise, and in connection to nature whenever possible. I believe that awe and inspiration are just as important as safety and security, and that the devil is most certainly in the details. I am a sensitive and intuitive person who thrives on the idea that my work is making a difference in someone’s life. I believe that everyone should have access to well-designed spaces, and that this access can help elevate a person to achieve their own personal greatness.

Most importantly, I believe that my job is to make sure the client is happy with the end result.

The Design Process

What does the design process look like? Here’s what will happen when you contact Cari Designs Architecture:

Conversation:  You will tell me your thoughts for a project, and we will set a time to meet in person for an hour consultation. We will talk through the various options and design process while providing time and space for clarification of the project scope and desired deliverables.

Proposal:  I will email you a proposal detailing the scope, schedule, and costs involved. All Cari Designs Architecture projects are done on an hourly basis, so the proposal serves as an estimate and defines the project scope. At any point you are at liberty to add to or subtract from the scope of the project.
