Since each project has a unique set of parameters (i.e. client's needs and desires, site features, context, budget, schedule), Studio DiBerardino, LLC strives to respond with unique design solutions. Therefore, the firm does not have a single stylistic approach for our projects but a consistent desire to seek out a creative response for each design challenge. We continually evaluate the results of previous projects to better inform our process on future endeavors.
The firm welcomes clients with unique visions for their built environments and their projects of varying size and scale. This wide range of projects ultimately succeeds in stimulating our design approach. We promote the concept of a strong project team, which requires open and engaging dialog between the Client, Architect and Contractor. Within this context, the firm's approach is to provide personalized service with a strong attention to detail to achieve the desired results.
Considering the inherent pitfalls of construction, the firm is skilled in identifying each party's expectations, capturing and documenting the design vision while navigating the project team throughout the design and construction processes. Post construction, we look to maintain an ongoing relationship with our clients. We address initial occupancy issues as well as evaluate the performance of their building. Several of our clients have utilized our services on multiple projects.
The firm has a keen appreciation for architecture that already exists. We advocate the preservation and renovation of significant and functional structures as a first planning option. We encourage designs that are eco-sensitive, sustainable, flexible, efficient and accessible for all – these features add to the beauty of the building.
Types of Services
Studio DiBerardino, LLC, offers complete architectural services specializing in residential architecture. The firm is qualified to fulfill your needs, goals and dreams from project start to finish, and beyond. Project types include new residences, additions and alterations, and historic renewals. The firm also focuses on interior design, project feasibility studies and post construction services.
Our firm stresses the importance of identifying early on all issues that might affect the feasibility of the project and the project site. Services include review of client's building program, selection of other design team members, regulatory review, budget and schedule analysis, real estate market evaluation, assessment of existing structures and systems, design exploration, and contractor prequalification.
The firm combines artistic, hand-drawn images with state-of-the-art CAD 3D modeling software, providing clients with valuable visualization tools throughout the design process. Detailed documentation (construction drawings and specifications) compiles the information necessary to obtain regulatory permits, to solicit competitive bids from contractors and to construct the project. During construction, we serve to safeguard the client's interests by closely monitoring all aspects of the building progress, answering contractor's questions, anticipating and spotting small problems before they grow, and responding quickly to unforeseen conditions and developments.
Interior architecture and design services allow the firm to continue the design theme into the building. Specific design elements have included built-in cabinetry, flooring patterns, lighting, color schemes, wall paneling, decorative plaster, coffers and mouldings of all types and styles.
