Beaufort's Leading Architect & Design Firm Best of Houzz 2013-2018
Cole Design Studio is a full service residential design firm specializing in custom located in Beaufort, SC. We strive to "Combine Science & Design to Create Healthy & Beautiful homes" producing the best possible solution for each individual client at the highest level of service and quality." Cole Design Studio, LLC is an award winning residential design firm based in Beaufort, South Carolina. While Ninety percent of CDS’s business is residential design, it can handle small commercial project under 5000 sq. ft. Cole Design Studio, LLC was founded in 1991 by Paul R. Cole (current Eastern District Director of the AIBD). It has been in operation since and has designed custom homes throughout the low country in Hilton Head, Bluffton, Ridgeland, Port Royal and Beaufort. Recently the name was changed to Cole Design Studio (CDS) to better reflect the scope of work produced by the company. CDS provides comfortable, livable custom low country designed homes as well as well selling spec homes – for both homeowners and builders alike. CDS is a diverse company with residential designs from 800 sq. ft. – 8000 sq. ft. providing design services based on the need of the client, whether it be a small addition, complete home or commercial office space. Some builders just need a good set of working drawings for a spec. home. On the other hand certain custom designs are fully drawn and documented with constant input from the client. With today’s new codes you need someone who understands structure as well as design. CDS can help select it all – from structural alternatives through the last yard of drapery fabric. We will work closely and coordinate with the structural engineer and the interior designer to get the design you are after. We can help you with the bidding process and the selection of your contractor. We can also help you find and work with a landscape designer to make sure that your home becomes an integral part of the property and is harmonious with the property it sits on. Ask us to show you some examples of our successful design projects around town and on the islands. Talk to our past clients and let them tell you about their experiences and how easy it was to turn their dreams into reality. Let us design your dream home!
