What Is an Architectural Program?

Your new-build’s architectural program boils down to what is essentially your wish list. The “programming” of your project is a technical term for defining the function of every room within four walls. In architecture, form follows function. As industry professionals, we first set out to understand what you want each room to do for you before tackling the finer design aspects of how you want each room to look. Of course, form and function are two principles that go hand-in-hand. The interior workings of your home will directly impact the exterior aesthetic.

That’s why our firm prioritizes the programming phase. We set aside ample time to consult with our clients one-on-one and ultimately ensure the final layout is practical, visually attractive, and cost-efficient.

San Diego’s Best Architectural Programming Services

To create a program from scratch, our architectural staff get to work collecting and analyzing the hard and fast data of your new-build. We assemble all the quantitative and qualitative data pertaining to the project, breaking down:

  • Square footage
  • Adjacencies of spaces
  • Structural
  • Mechanical
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Accessibility
  • Sustainability
  • FF&E (furnishings, fixtures, and equipment)

We gather all this information into a cohesive program by displaying these details both graphically and diagrammatically. Using the program as a point of reference, we can calculate a base cost estimate that will serve future design phases. In a nutshell, the level of detail we put into the programming phase of our work facilitates a smoother journey through subsequent legs of the project.
