I think your question is too ample to be answered properly without any reference to what kind of building, office and parking you refer.
Basically, one architect applies method when tryng to produce proper to-be-built answers that fulfill the requirements of clients. Most clients are more stringent than lenient about what they want, but there is anyway significant percentalges that allow a great amount of freedom to the architect as designer. In these cases the architect tries to answer by imagining what kind of building or planning provides alll that is required. To do this he must think on what activities are to be developed there according to what schedules, what the established requirements are, what typological solutions if any are standing to serve the intent of the project, and of course, what ideas in his mind do this better. In other words, putting oneself in other's shoes.
Depending upon the personality of the architect some may emphasize the investigation of what existent, whereas otherss will prefer be creative and only when forced doblegate to anything that is mandatory.
It is a personal choice, that influences greatly the results.
