CUSTOM HOME DESIGN IN CHARLESTON, SC

Combining deep expertise, broad experience and renowned ability, the Anderson Studio is the leading choice for custom home design in Charleston, SC. With a sharp attention to detail, and a collaborative easy to follow process, we will deliver a unique, cohesive design that will bring your ideal home to life.

OUR DELIVERY PROCESS

As one of Charleston, South Carolina’s most innovative architecture firms offering custom home design, the Anderson Studio has spent years refining a delivery process that creates collaborative, positive communication between the client and our team members. While every client has specific objectives that represent unique monetary and logistical challenges, this process allows the Anderson team to anticipate the concerns and challenges inherent in the design of any fine residential home, enabling us to turn them into exceptional opportunities to create something unique and timeless.

Initial Consultations

During the initial consultation, Scott will meet with you to learn more about your desires and goals for your custom home design. The initial consultation is followed by a visit to the property. We will then determine the governing authorities who have jurisdiction over the project and the best path for meeting the authority’s requirements.

As part of our due diligence, we work to help each client understand how their project goals may affect costs and budget. We work closely with you develop a project timeline, introduce you to collaborating designers and engineers, and guide you through the selection process.

Client Communication

Many of our clients have their primary residence outside of the Charleston area. For this reason, communication regarding your unique home design is essential. We are happy to communicate with you in whatever way you are most comfortable, including phone, videoconferencing, email or other technologies.

When decisions are critical, we ensure that our designs are delivered to you in hardcopy format via overnight delivery services. At important design stages, we prefer to have face-to-face meetings, with Scott and other team members available to meet with you at the project site, our office, or any place of your choosing.

Design Decisions

As an experienced custom home designer and architect, Anderson Studio believes that great design is a fluid process. Openness to a fluid process cultivates an opportunity for great design solutions. Each layer in the design process is built on the success of previous design choices. Our process moves from general to specific, from concepts to details. We communicate the objectives of each phase and work to solve them sequentially. There is intentional overlap between design phases, and the key is communicating with the client so that you can make the appropriate choices.

Bids, Builders, Permitting & Documents

We work diligently to thoroughly document and deliver the appropriate information to bidders and permitting authorities through drawings, schedules and specifications. We also work to coordinate the efforts of any consultant designers and engineers on the project to ensure that all work is concerted. If a builder has not been selected, we can introduce you to several highly qualified contractors from which you can select your preferred builder. Should you elect to seek competitive bids, we will coordinate the request for bids on your behalf and advise on bid submissions.

Once you are comfortable with the proposed custom home design and its estimated cost, we will prepare a full set of architectural documents for permitting and construction. During construction, we will continue to advise you and the builder. We will answer questions from the field and review shop drawings and requests for payment. As necessary, Anderson will provide sketches for clarification. We will attend regular project coordination meetings and perform critical walk-throughs with the owner. When appropriate, we will plan, coordinate and execute the interior design for your home as well.

 

ACHIEVING YOUR UNIQUE
HOME DESIGN

No two projects are alike. We start each new project with an open mind and a clean slate to help ensure you get the unique home design of your dreams. Part of the thrill in architecture and design projects for us is to discover how our designs can be tailored to meet your specific needs. We put much effort into understanding who you are and what your goals and motivations are so that we have a solid foundation from which to design the finished product. That said, our delivery process is highly participatory. You will see a lot of us. From the initial concept meeting to completion, you will receive personal attention from Scott Anderson and the rest of your carefully selected project team.
