Charm because we see through YOUR EYES. Charm because we study YOUR LIFESTYLE, and create a home JUST FOR YOU!
Our background is architecture and planning. 35 years worth. Our wealth of experience has taught us to Think Differently. To Listen. See things differently.
Our process requires first that we learn to understand our owners, their needs, lifestyle and dreams. We learn what charms them, relaxes them, thrills them. Next we research and brainstorm. We collect a plethora of images, as we find that this is the best way to help our clients communicate their desires to us. We paste up old school boards of images, and let our clients live with them. After they have done so, they are able to tell us what they love, what they hate, what they want.
We love modern homes, but especially love them when they are bold, bright and serve up fabulous views AND are warm and comfortable places to live.
We like strong architecture, lots of glass, light and endless views. We like warm materials, contrasts, layers and textures. We also love traditional architecture, especially when it is authentic. We do extensive research into forms, details, materials colors and textures. We have lived and traveled extensively in the old world as well. Individually, details and materials often seem insignificant. Combined they create magic.
Create. We know your goals and dreams. We know the obstacles. We’ve developed strategies for success. Now, what’s the BIG IDEA? What should the BIG IDEA look like?
We design. What will it be like to be here? We Create Magical Experiences and magical memories. Designers Design. It’s what we do. We solve problems, generate ideas, translate broad strategies into specific designs. We focus on the BIG IDEA, but don’t overlook the details. How big is it? What ? How much does it cost? Not just places, not just plans. Not just buildings. Create Experiences.
Rearrange the pieces. Rethink. Incorporate proven new technologies. Make it better. Understand the goals.
Experience sells. Experience is the stuff that life is made of. The principles of experience design make magic.
Success matters. Successful projects are those that are approved, built, well-loved and profitable. Dreams reached.
