with you in mind

With our guidance throughout the entire process, your project's vision gets crystal clear.  We can even start with initial ideas and design intent before you bring in an architect, and develop a full set of interior construction plans for your contractor to quote and head to the city for a permit. 


Construction is our strong suit, whether it's a remodel, Backyard Apartment, or new build, and we will help demystify the process and take care of all the nitty gritty for you.  We're with you every step of the way to make sure your project is cohesive and stays on track, meeting both time and budget goals, and keeping your stress levels at a minimum.  Think of us as your dedicated concierge advocate, here to help you sidestep any expensive missteps.

You may only need a set of plans drafted for your project, or lighting fixtures and finish material selections and you're off and running.  Or maybe you simply don't have the time or skill-set to design and manage a project and are looking for a full-service experience.  Either way, we're here for you.



We create a full-set of custom plans, or work with your architect or builder, to develop the construction plans and elevations for your project's layout, electrical and lighting, finish materials, and furniture space plan, covering every detail so that it looks and functions with your goals in mind.




We'll help you find the look you want for all of your interior finishes and fixtures - from flooring to cabinetry, and Kitchen and Bath tile to plumbing and light fixtures.  Our detailed selections will have you covered down to the nitty-gritty.
