Magnolia Maison – Brick Home Remodel – Board & Vellum
Custom Residential, Interior Design

Magnolia Maison

Before this brick home remodel, the house was very cut up, with dark interior spaces cut off from each other by a central, closed off basement stair. But, after a full gut and remodel, which included opening up and relocating the stair, this charming brick home is now full of light, airy spaces, and custom details.

Urban Yard at The Seattle Box

Can your small urban yard fit all the features you want? Quite possibly, if you design it well. This yard features outdoor spaces that mirror the functionality of the home’s indoor spaces: a place to relax around the fire, a place to cook, a place to eat, a place to play, and so on, as the indoors and outdoors blend.

Commercial Office, Interior Design

Capital Pacific

This commercial office design project for a boutique real estate firm, Capital Pacific, added a Pacific Northwest touch to a great mid-century commercial building.
