Our projects encompass residential, corporate, commercial, and institutional design, inclusive of both new construction and renovation work.

Working in close collaboration with our clients, the design process is a well-researched and thoughtful distillation of client requirements and preferences, with careful consideration of budget and schedule. The result is a structure that is appealing and functional, meticulously crafted, and well suited to both the character of the client and the site.

Is it a natural finish? Looks similar to Bona Naturale. Very pretty!

Yes, natural finish. Not sure if Bona Naturale was used in the end or something else.

Thanks for your question. We do not like to give out the names of the paint colors used. Paint colors differ in different light and shadow. In addition photo color always look different in digital media between different computer monitors. We hate to give you the name of the color, your purchase it and it looks completely different on your wall. Hope that helps. I can tell you we are very fond of Benjamin Moore paint.

Thanks for your question. It's cedar shingles and the color was custom blended in order to match the existing house.

Thanks for your question. There's really no bad option for heating a garage. It depends on your budget, your preferences and location. The apartment above could be heated with water baseboard, or with a ducted hvac system, or go on the simpler side and use a heating/cooling wall unit. Depends if you want the system to be non-visible or visible. You can heat the garage with radiant heat or a hanging garage heater.

Hi! Beautifully done bathroom! I can't know for sure who manufactures the faucet and towel ring, but it looks very similar to the Santec Monarch collection, which we sell on our website. http://focalpointhardware.com/1120fl-santec-monarch-widespread-lavatory-with-fl-handles-p-2551.html http://focalpointhardware.com/8164lu-santec-monarch-towel-ring-p-2660.html
Feel free to visit our website and check out the products I mentioned and to learn more about them.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your question. For this shower the floor is just decking over gravel. Some town inspectors might actually plumb the shower, but here we didn't have too.

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, we don't have permission to share photos of the whole house in order to protect the privacy of our client. I will say that the details are very similar between the house and garage.

Yes the deck boards are spaced apart. Roughly 1/4" space. However this all depends on what type of wood you are using and when you are installing the decking. Moisture and humidity make the deck boards swell and contract during different seasons. Highly suggest doing some research on your area before you make a final decision.

Thanks for your question. The breezeway here is 16'-0" long between the house and the garage. If you are looking to achieve something similar 5' would definitely be to small, we would maximize as much space between the house and garage as you can. You want a breezeway to feel open and inviting, if its on the smaller side it might feel too closed off.

Thanks for your question. These are wood mouldings. We aren't sure of which technique the carpenter used to curve the wood.
