While our Portfolio shows many photographs of our work, larger and more complicated projects are better told in a more detailed way. Below are links to case studies that show our design-build approach in greater fullness:
Case Study 1 – Whole Home Renovation
Located in the woods outside of Chelsea we reconfigured the floor
plan and added new space on 2 levels to this 1970s passive solar home.
Winner of a 2006 CotY Award for Entire Home remodeling.
Case Study 2 – Major Addition
Located on a hilltop in Ann Arbor, we added 1,000 s.f. of new space, added 2
levels of outdoor decks, and did extensive remodeling on this 1950s home.
Winner of a 2007 National CotY Award for Additions.
Case Study 3 – Interior Transformation
A plain brick ranch home in Ann Arbor Hills gets transformed into a breathtaking modern interior– open floor plan, serpentine curves, bold colors, and a floor plan that ‘just works’! 300 s.f. of space was added by enclosing an old screen porch, and 800 s.f. of interior space was completely reconfigured and renovated.
Winner of a 2010 National Master Design Award
Case Study 4 – Arts & Crafts Kitchen
A new spacious kitchen looking out onto a new breakfast room and family room space. All spaces have an Arts & Crafts feel as seen in the cherry cabinetry and ceramic tile details, and the copper and forged iron details on the light fixtures and island hood.
Winner of a 2009 Regional CotY Award for Additions
Case Study 5 – Elegant Universal Bathroom
This new space is a showpiece, a room that speaks of the client’s sophistication and style. As part of their guest suite, it serves as a home away from home for visitors. In the future, the bathroom will serve the clients themselves, as aging requires more accessibility.
Winner of 2011 Regional CotY Award for Universal Design
Case Study 6 – Opening the First Floor
A cut-up, confusing first floor layout was completely reconfigured. The L-shaped kitchen and island combination make for a better spatial arrangement and simpler function. New powder room and new mudroom, with cubbies for each family member. All while utilizing a very minimal, traditional style.
Winner of 2012 National Master Design Award
