Sophisticated Renovations. Simplified.

What we do

We make the process of completing major home renovation projects enjoyable for NYC homeowners. Whether your style is modern or traditional, we are capable of handling all aspects of a project—from the initial design concept, to plan creation and material selection, all the way through installation—we become your trusted resource and single point of contact for the duration of your project.

How we do it

We begin with an initial consultation to understand your needs and use this information to guide us through the design process. We work with you to perfect the design and choose the materials. Our expert craftsmen turn our designs into a stunning reality. Throughout the process, we are there with you—every step of the way.

Our Services

We know that every project is unique and tailor our services to meet your specific needs.

MATERIAL SELECTION

We make it easy to navigate the seemingly countless decisions involved in a renovation project. Through our longstanding relationships with NYC’s best showrooms, we know what will work best for your project and exactly where to go to find it.

INTERIOR DESIGN

Whether it be as a standalone service or part of a full renovation project, we provide a custom and personal approach. We’ll guide you through the entire interior design process, from floor plans to furniture installation.

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

The first step in any project is the design process. Here, we meet with you to determine your goals and requirements. We listen to your ideas and collaborate to design solutions that meet your needs and budget.

ARCHITECTURAL PLANS

From helping you visualize your completed project to navigating the approval process with your co-op board, our LEED-accredited architect prepares plans that are ready to submit to the NYC Department of Buildings and Landmarks Preservation Commission.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

We are experts at coordinating every detail of your project so that it turns out as intended. From accepting deliveries to supervising contractors we handle everything so you don’t have to.

GENERAL CONTRACTING

With our in-house team and extensive network of subcontractors, we are proud to offer our clients an unsurpassed level of craftsmanship, innovation and service. We are ready to install everything we design, including custom millwork.
