Practical Yet Elegant
Practical meets elegance in this functional bathroom made to accommodate two busy professionals. The design was influenced by a Parisian hotel where the couple had once stayed.

Mixed Metal Magic
Break the rule of not mixing metals. Combining warmer tone metals like gold with cooler tone metals like stainless steel adds a layer of vibrancy and uniqueness to the kitchen.

Dream in Color
An architect’s dream, offering a sleek modern amalgam of form and function. The bold use of color and sculptural design makes this kitchen a work of art.

Lifetime of Comfort
With thoughtful reconfiguration, we altered the first floor of this home to allow for full wheelchair access. Streamlined construction and careful procurement of accessible, yet attractive materials keep this bathroom feeling upscale.

Transforming Outdated Contemporary
Custom white cabinets, a waterfall edge island, a modern banquette, and Cubist-style built-ins transformed an outdated 1970s Cleveland Park kitchen while respecting the original contemporary design.

Subtle Visual Interest
When a number of small, fine details harmoniously accumulate – a variety of tiles; rich cabinetry; clean, contemporary fixtures; all illuminated by a unique window – they can create a lasting impression.

Does a kitchen need to be big to be beautiful? Size is clearly not everything. A custom hood, contrasting island and a subtle pop of color make this kitchen a gem.
