our process

All projects, regardless of size and complexity, follow the same basic process from kickoff to completion:

preliminary design

We begin with a consultation which gives us a chance to see your space, learn your goals and discuss general strategies/design solutions to achieve them.

Young Businesswomen

We will produce a schematic proposal for each space in the project including one - two ideal furniture layouts.  All furniture will be identified with one purchasable example that meets the client’s design aesthetic and budget to verify the proposed design can be delivered.

After schematic design is approved, the process takes slightly different turns between interior design and architecture projects, as applicable to each client’s service agreement.

For an interior design project, the schematic design proposal is expanded to include multiple options for each item being purchased. Furniture, lighting, flooring, textiles and decorative accessories are all considered.

For an architecture project, the schematic design proposal is expanded to include ceiling plans, elevations and renderings as well as material selection for finishes like countertops, tile, flooring, and cabinetry are selected

construction documents

This phase is only for architecture projects and focuses on the documents that will be used for construction and, if necessary, permits required by the city or state.

For interior design projects, ad:roit will assist with coordinating deliveries, managing tradespeople, and overall installation of all the items in your new space.


For architecture projects, ad:roit will act as your representative with the contractor(s), ensuring they comply with the construction documents.


The duration and level of detail for each of these phases will vary with the specific needs of each project. We will discuss your project's path during Preliminary Design and it will be reflected in your proposal, so you know exactly what to expect before engaging our services.
