Design Process

Studio 342's team of professionals is dedicated to a client-driven design process. While it can be tailored to suit a project's needs, Studio 342's design process is based on three key principles:

  • Understand - The first step to a successful design is to listen to our client’s goals. Once our staff determines a project's program and goals, we are able to incorporate them into a design.

  • Create - Studio 342 works directly with its clients during design phases, bouncing ideas back and forth, until the design meets the project program and goals.

  • Realize - Once a design is developed, Studio 342 professional staff works with clients through the construction planning process to bring the landscape design to life.
