Four Square Design Studio LLC is a full-service design firm specializing in residential and small commercial design projects. A significant amount of our practice consists of renovations of or additions to older buildings. We find that owners, builders, and even other design professionals often overlook the adaptive potential in well-designed older structures. Where others see a tear-down, we often see opportunities for adaptive re-use – a chance to enhance or re-purpose an old building to serve a contemporary need, while respecting its original spirit and design. Yet, although we have extensive knowledge of and education in historic architectural styles and art history, we are not strict traditionalists. We enjoy the juxtaposition of old and new, and our love and appreciation for modern design often leads us to adopt a contemporary interior treatment in our renovation projects.
More than anything else, we love working with clients who value good design, who share our aesthetic sense, and with whom we can forge an effective collaboration.
We are known for our cooperative working style as well as our skill in the following areas:
•Knowledge of historic (19th to mid-20th century) architectural styles and detailing
•Kitchen and bath design
•Finding creative solutions where available space is limited
•Design of custom cabinetry and furniture
•Use of color
•Production of construction and permitting drawings
Our outstanding educational and technical qualifications enable us to deliver superior designs to our clients. Both of our lead designers completed undergraduate degrees in Art History before obtaining their professional degrees. Our Principal Designer has passed the national NCIDQ certification exam, is registered with the Texas Board of Architectural Examiners, and is a Professional Member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
