How do we work with you to design the room of your dreams?

When clients recently approached Tanglewood with a request for a beautiful “old-world” style Palm House, we quickly entered what we call our Project Definition Process.

The PDP is a structured process developed to facilitate a three step approach to project design:

Step 1:  Examination. By listening carefully to your answers to a series of probing questions, we discover the important factors for a successful project. Each client and each project is unique. Pencil cannot meet paper until we thoroughly understand the client or architect’s vision. 

In this case, the Palm House was to be an elegant creation from another time – the 19th Century, and feature the refined exuberance of steel details in celebration of the structure.

Step 2: Solutions. At Tanglewood, we are well known for our ability to produce creative, original designs that respond to what we learn from our clients through the Examination process. Our clients often feel “they designed the room” themselves! And, the design must be within the specified budget.

In this case, of three possible design directions we presented, the decision was immediate and unanimous. Often, we know we “got it right” when the entire team is unanimous in their opinion.

Step 3: Implementation. True craftsmanship lies in the details! A beautiful concept must be functional and build-able. The details must be right…exactly right. Our team must perform perfectly and work together with others on your team in order for the entire process to be successful.

Follow this project throughout the Tanglewood process for a unique inside look at the creation of a beautiful “old-world” Palm House and when you are ready to design your perfect getaway retreat,  give us a call at 410.479.4700 or online.

We look forward to working with you.
