Architecture + Process: Site Planning + Program Development

Posted on by Lauren Moss

For a new project on the boards at MYD, we're working through the preliminary stages of the architectural process, starting with a general site analysis and programming studies to determine the best use of the land and to inform the conceptual plans and general spatial layout at the residential site, located on South Coast Highway in Laguna Beach.

This process enables a better understanding of the property and its characteristics, such as topography, orientation, views, and neighborhood context, while also considering zoning regulations, property-specific guidelines and other potential constraints.

Massing diagrams illustrate building footprints and associated site sections; with these in mind, we start to take a look at opportunities to maximize architectural and programmatic project potential at a more intimate scale, below.
