Life of an Architect Podcast Ep. 107: Design Development

By Bob Borson, FAIA  | September 6, 2022

There is a process when working on a residential project when you actually start figuring out what the project will look like in terms of elevations, exterior materials, interior finishes, specialty lighting, cabinetry, plumbing fixtures, etc. This phase of the work is widely referred to as “design development,” which is the focus of our conversation today. Welcome to episode 107 of Life of an Architect podcast: Design Development.
