Managing an interior design project requires as much creative thought-
fulness as the design itself, and the best projects begin with a carefully
planned project schedule. Typically, a project process is broken down into
distinct phases to establish decision-making milestones, both within the
design team and with the client. At the beginning of the design process,
innumerable options present themselves, but as the design progresses,
the number of options gradually reduces as the project gels around spe-
cic themes and congurations.
Drawings are the primary format through which design choices are ex-
plored and communicated. The mode of drawing changes as the project
is rened and nessed. At the beginning of the design, freehand sketch-
es are the best way to test concepts, while later in the process compu-
ter-aided design (CAD) is necessary tone-tune dimensional decisions
and coordinate with consulting engineers. New technologies are mak-
ing it easier to explore design concepts in three dimensions at several
stages of the design process.
