Strategy & Planning
We listen to our clients. At Vulkan Designs, we’re inspired to create the perfect balance between a home and a client’s lifestyle. Each detail is selected to harmonize with every element, creating lasting designs that match our clients’ objectives. Designing a home is a great deal more than translating ideas into floor plans and building elevations. It requires being good listeners and gaining a clear understanding of what a client really wants. It is the small details like a window seat, a flower box or a perfectly framed view that makes a house a home. Our concepts are translated into a fully rendered 3D model with accurate representation of the context and surroundings.
Every detail matters. The goal is simple: provide a comprehensive set of construction documents that capture every aspect of the project minimizing questions and change orders. We also offer in-house Interior Design and Landscape Architecture services for a fully coordinated result. We are well versed in coordinating approvals from all involved agencies, including Local & State Building Departments, Home Owner’s Associations, and California Coastal Commission.
Communication is key. We provide personalized service throughout the whole process, from initial design concepts to the move in date and you will deal with the same people from start to finish. A successful project delivery is the result of having a clear and experienced design and construction team. We guide our clients through the contractor bidding negotiation phase and seamlessly follow through with any oversights or cost mitigation options. We are there every step of the way providing detailed walk throughs and regular site visits.
