how we work

No two clients or projects are the same, and that is what makes custom design both fun and rewarding.  It also dictates that we limit ourselves to a select number of projects each year.

Clients typically approach us when they are ready to design and build a new luxury home, or as they are considering an entire home renovation.  For repeat clients, we have also designed professional office spaces, second homes, condos, yachts and even private jets.

Some clients know exactly what they want going in, while others have some ideas and aren’t sure how to piece them together.  In all cases we find our clients have a sense of how they want the space to feel, even if they can’t explain it in words.  We help them find their voice, and transform their space.

Many design firms only produce design drawings and specifications before turning a project over to a general contractor to implement.  Our experience shows us that this approach often results in miscommunication, changes, short cuts and cost overruns – all of which can compromise the design integrity, the space, and the client’s experience.

We follow a complete beginning-to-end approach because we know how difficult executing to perfection can be.  There are three main steps in our process.  First, we meet with you to define the scope of work and determine your design aesthetic and preferences.  Next, our design process begins by translating your desires into a unique design that is both created and revised with your feedback.  Once approved, we procure all materials, curate a team of experts required for your project, and manage construction throughout the entire process.  Despite the best planning efforts the unexpected may arise, and that’s when we will be there to problem solve and preserve the integrity of your design, down to the finishing touches.
