Our architecture is driven by the belief that it should transform our clients’ ambitions into practical reality that fits within and adds to the urban environment.
We aim to create architecture that improves the human experience.
Here at Norm, our group of highly trained architects and designers took part in a number of major projects throughout the Middle East, including office buildings, hospitality buildings, educational, commercial, cultural, civic, medical, governmental, and residential buildings.
While planning, we determine the goals, expectations, values and priorities of each project. Once these items are settled, we translate them into practical building solutions and guidelines. These can include size requirements, construction budgets, reviews of local zoning and buildings codes, as well as their impact on the project. At this stage, we prepare the schematic design and a general cost estimate. We also figure out if the client requires surveys, as-built drawings, soil tests, etc.
Once planning is complete, the design phase begins. At this stage, we create accurate floor plans and translate them into elevations, sections, site plans and design drawings. We also consider final finishes, exact room sizes, and appliance and furniture locations to complete the overall design. Preliminary structural, mechanical and electrical layouts are also decided, along with accurate construction cost estimates. The design process ends with a complete set of drawings, ready for the building permit phase.
