FEATURE ESSAY:

1. Synopsis describing the project goals, special features, or nuances.

The space had to be multi-functional and have an open concept to a bar/kitchen area, card table, and a 175 gallon salt water aquarium. The client fell in love with our design concept, and after approval of initial renderings and sample materials, we were given the freedom to complete the project on time and on budget with no further input from the homeowner. more
