Architectural programming is that the thorough and systematic evaluation of the interrelated values, goals, facts, and wishes of a client’s family and therefore the surrounding community. A well-conceived program results in high-quality design. Programming is when you’ll meet together with your architect to debate all of your needs and desires for your new home. During programming, your architect will gather information on your vacant lot or existing home. At this point, the owner and architect will begin to make a cohesive relationship and a shared concept for the ultimate building. Here the scope, features, purpose, and functionality of your house is defined. Alongside your architect, you develop and refine a “vision” for the project. Your architect leads you thru a “programming” exercise to assist you explore the requirements of these who will live, work or play within the space you create. You will be asked to think about what you would like both aesthetically and functionally of your home. What’s the time-frame for occupying your new home? What are the indoor and outdoor space requirements or the likely movements and interactions of these who are going to be living and visiting your home? The answers to those and other questions will provide insight into uses and living conditions; insights your architect will use to style a home created specifically for you and your lifestyle.
