Our Process


You can count on us to guide you every step of the way from design through construction. We will collaborate closely with you, always available to respond to your questions. We have spent decades developing our architectural expertise and refining our proven 5-Step PROCESS. Now let us make it work for you!

Consultation and Evaluation

You will meet with the Principal of our firm Gus Morpurgo, who will design and manage your project.  We will talk hopes and dreams, wish lists and must-haves, splurges and budgets. As we check out your property together, we will explore how to maximize its potential. We will approximate the cost of your construction and provide you with a proposal.  When you are ready, we will sign a contract and move forward together.

Concept Development

We will present you with our design concept and inspired ideas in the form of plans and elevations.  3D-models and striking color renderings will bring our plans to life. We also offer Interior Design services, including Custom-Designed Built-Ins by Morpurgo Architects, Furniture, and Accessories.

Construction Documents and Contractor Selection

Morpurgo Architects is known for our detailed plans that go beyond the norm, assuring that during construction costly change orders based on the documents are rare, saving you time and money. We will pre-qualify contractors, sharing your dream with them and reviewing every detail of their bids with you.  To ensure that their quotes are comparable, we will create spreadsheets, so that you can easily evaluate the contractors’ services and costs.

Construction Phase

We will work together with you and your contractor to carry out our plans as we conceptualized them. In our decades of architectural experience, there are few construction obstacles that we have not seen and resolved. We are committed to serving your best interest and your budget.

Finishing Touches

We will walk your project with you, checking off every item on the Punch List, until it has earned Two Thumbs Up. Experience tells us that our greatest satisfaction will come from seeing our mutual vision realized … beyond your expectations!
