After that, the team and clients get together and dissect the draft, adding or editing out where necessary. When all the details are polished, the firm lets the clients decide which of its services they’d like to use to successfully realize their plan. This process results in highly personalized spaces that embody the tastes and lifestyles of individual clients.
