ART BOULLE’S DOOR TO DOOR STORY FEATURE
A PREVIEW OF OUR PROCESS:
It all starts with a briefing, where the Art Boulle team gets all the elements the client is looking for in their door — the overall look, feel, vision and budget. Next are early collaborations — architectural specifications of the client’s home are provided, and the design team collaborates with the architect if necessary. The design phase is key — this is where we get a clear objective of the style and finishes. This stage is crucial in creating a successful result. The client shares their expectations and preferences regarding the tone and appeal of the materials and are shown real examples of the materials to create a clearer picture. When it’s time for rending and pre-visualization, the client is shown 3D images (called architectural renderings). It’s an important step when it comes to clients really envisioning their front door in the façade of their property. After the approvals have been made, manufacturing begins. We pride ourselves on employing the finest materials and the most skilled artisans who have perfected their craft through generations. It’s the unflinching dedication of our artisans that allow for the design and creation of our most intricate iron and wood pieces.
