HOW WE WORK:
A STRUCTURED COLLABORATIVE PROCESS
Our process of working follows a structured collaborative process between client, architect(s), contractors and designer.
Within each phase, Saint-Amand Landscape Design integrates information pertinent to the stage of work. (Please see diagram below for details.) Client and expert input, sketches & technical drawings, regulations, information on materials and construction, along with further research, all serve as ingredients in a stew, which is boiled down through the process into an essential expression.
The nature of work is thus thoughtful, incremental, and requires time and input from a variety of sources.
In the words of architects Billie Tsien and Tod Williams:
