Many clients can be overwhelmed by the number of decisions that need to be made to complete a home interior. We strive to make the process predictable, as to allow for a thoughtful design. We work with you and your team for the best design result in a capacity that you feel comfortable.
Often concurrent with the Contract Documents Phase, presented at a series of planned meetings, BBA Architects prepare drawings and material samples to describe the finish character of the home. This service typically includes drawing all interior elevations. Cabinetry, interior trim, tile patterning, flooring and decorative lighting selections can all be incorporated in this phase, which can be tailored to each client’s design needs. This is also when the kitchen and bath spaces really start to sing. By request, our team can also help shop for plumbing fixtures, decorative hardware, stone slabs, or appliances.
We provide a full finish material specification for items that we select for the client, or items selected by others, including an outside interior designer. These are documented in a seamless set of documents, and provide a complete map for your contractor.
BBA has long offered color palate, finished surface and fixture selections, as part of our basic architectural interiors service. It is never required to hire an interiors consultant, though many wish to do so for the added richness that can be achieved.
For clients who wish to have a more in-depth look at interior elements such as furnishings, wall coverings, and window treatments, BBA encourages our clients to consider the use of an interior designer. See our tips for working with an interiors consultant in this article, and our list of preferred providers here.
For clients that are not ready to make a commitment to an outside firm, we offer Interior Design Services as well as procurement, on al a-la-carte basis, or as part of a full interior design contract, via our strategic alliance with Allison Henry Interior Design. We now offer Allison’s talent in-house, in full collaboration with our work.
Allison has long been a go to resource for incidental sourcing, and has been the interiors consultant and valued collaborator on dozens of Bba projects over the years. Bba clients will now have full access to her design, seamlessly integrated into the full menu of professional services offered by bba Architects.
