Details will make or break a fine design.  The integrity of the work rests on the development of the overall theme into a relationship of the parts to the whole.  A good plan can be devastated by poor detailing and workmanship.  Even good details can rescue or obscure a poorly developed concept.  Whether Period or Contemporary in nature, the details fortify the design, they are proof of quality.

Details encompass architectural elements and their joining, structural connections, attention to the smallest trim piece and the surrounding motif, the finish of materials,  window and door hardware, finished electrical and plumbing fixtures, sealants and conjunction of dissimilar materials, and general  craftsmanship.

Attention to details is a time consuming endeavor, but if the architect does not anticipate or plan, design and craft the essential details of a project, the weakness of the parts is revealed and the integrity suffers.  In essence, much money can be spent only to find disappointment in execution.  See Ultra-Custom Services.
