I would have my guests send to me their project overview, pictures, desires and existing site characteristics (using my supplied formats). I would then make comments, clarify their needs, prequalify them (or disqualify based on improper fit) and schedule them for the seminar. The seminar would take place in Dillon, Colorado (or nearby) at a location suitable to the group size-maximum of 6 participants. The setting would be suitably dramatic and We would begin, with all guests having work space, their computer,drafting tools and supplies, with each guest briefly describing their project- I would then offer, after discussion and questions, a round table critique and general summation of the desired individual goals/deliverables. Initiating a one on one dialogue with each guest, and setting them to "sketching", I would thruout the session, move from guest to guest at a brisk pace. The seminar concept is to quickly correct and/or remedy a poor/odd/inappropriate design decision, or offer alternatives, to get them to the next schematic phase of their project. In order I would reference site planning, drive and front door access, floor plans, exterior massing/details and roof forms.
We will provide lunch and beverages all day.
I am a well seasoned and experienced architect/designer for new homes, additions, remodels and commercial tenant finishes. After 40 years in the profession I have become very adept at quickly analyzing design and construction solutions and selecting and recommending the appropriate initial paths towards the finished product . I would like to offer a seminar/class/tutorial titled "How to Design Your Home In One Day". It would offer novices a concise regimen, involving site planning, floor plans, exterior massing, roof forms and exterior details to create a schematic and workable design.
We will not visit any additional outside place-I will have numerous architectural scaled models, drawings and appropriate exhibits included in our seminar space.
