“the key to great design is capturing the spirit of the client and the essence of the space”

When my clients came to me, they were looking to expand their current kitchen and entertaining space.   Their previous kitchen was small and dysfunctional for their needs. It was time for a change.  Before meeting with me, they had retained an architect to design an addition for the new kitchen and a home office. When the project was put out to bid, the estimates that were returned quickly put the project over budget.

I was presented with a challenge of not only designing a new kitchen, but re-configuring the space within its existing footprint to make it more functional.  Because the kitchen could be seen from the dining area, the sunroom, the upstairs balcony and the  exterior deck, aesthetics were of utmost importance.  Everything that was specified for the project had to be able to stand on its own, and work together for the benefit of finished project.

The client had some very specific requests such as not being able to see any decorative hardware, but was very open minded on all of the other aspects of the design.  In the end it was a successful project that led to a very satisfied client, and to many referrals.
