We start with design and specifications to assure the right feel for the project. Then we revisit the budget to align all of the costs, finally we bid out to various contractors and verify fees and scope of work. After we have awarded the contract and have started construction, then we monitor the progress of construction keeping a sharp eye on quality and deadlines.
We have a standard pricing system for your services, for this fee we provide a 3-part service.
1. Design, permits and engineering
2. Contractor and vendors to align with the budget
3. Construction support during the building period
We work with private clients who have recently purchased a home which may need work, real estate developers and agents, and business owners who need to make a change. We are often referred by real estate agents for support before and during the escrow phase.
The newest project just broke ground on a mid-century, post and beam, Ranch-Styled home in Ladera Heights, Los Angeles. It is a sprawling one story with tall ceilings, original fireplace, and terrazzo flooring. We will be removing a large dividing wall between the kitchen and dining room to open up the space and create more natural light.
Latest news, the project now finishing on West Blvd in Culver City. It is a typical Los Angeles, Spanish-Mediterranean-mission style home with thick plaster walls and arched openings. To preserve the architectural spirit of the house we are using terra cotta and period black and white hexagon tiles with matte black plumbing fixtures and lighting accents.
What we do is special. We are great designers, but we are also extraordinary at managing project costs, details and deadlines. Of course you want a beautiful project, which is completed on budget and on time. We manage all of the little details around every project, with nothing left out.
We enjoy the diversity of the clientele and projects. Our clients are professional people, often engaged in the design industry and contribute greatly to the process and outcome of the project. We are not a heavy-handed design firm bent on doing things the same way in every project, and we value change and evolution in our design approach and collaboration with each client.
