Cover House - Tuscan Reminiscence

Mediterranean-style architecture remains ever popular, in part because its design elements are influenced by the sunshine and moderate temperatures of seaside countries bordering the Mediterranean. Just the thought of sparkling waters and warm sunshine promotes a sense of well being. The owners of this waterfront, Tuscan-farmhouse-style residence had traveled regularly to Italy, and wanted their new home to capture the enduring appeal of places they had visited.

Brooklyn Hip Meets Northern Virginia

As a hip, fun-loving New York couple with young children, the owners of this Arlington, Virginia home carried Brooklyn in their hearts but recognized that it is not the aesthetic of their new location. For this reason, it became one of the main challenges for the design-build team to create both exterior and interior design that would embrace a modern, industrial feel but avoid the coldness associated with the loft or warehouse approach of modern industrial.


Blue Ridge Mountain Remodel

Nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains of northwest Georgia, this remodel once had a dark and choppy floor plan. The property was beautiful, though, with lake and forest views, so the goal was to transform the original house, and have it blend with the natural environment. It now beautifully reflects a clean craftsman concept with bits of rustic here and there.

Waterside Cove

This beautiful home features a contemporary, clean-lined concept with features such as smooth stucco finishes, stainless steel railings, open stairs, and an abundance of vertical glass with no mullions. Because of the flood elevation, the first floor of main living space is actually on a second-floor height and, cleverly, the swimming pool and spa also are on the elevated, main-floor level where views of the water are especially refreshing.
