Having just purchased a home, we were looking for someone to draft plans for an interior re-design of our home. We interviewed three different designers and out of them we decided Giancarlo was the person that we wanted to work with. He made a great first impression. He was punctual for our first meeting and had pre-drafted a quotation based on our initial conversation over the phone. He was very professional and offered some great insights while walking through the home with us. We also felt very comfortable sharing our thoughts and ideas with him and he was very receptive to them. We did not hesitate in hiring him to help us re-design the space.
It was not too long after our first meeting that Giancarlo was able to produce a set of plans for the home. He was able to incorporate all of our wants and needs into the plans. We had requested changes to the design throughout and he was always willing to accommodate those requests without hesitation. He was great at communicating his ideas and thoughts. The process of working with him was collaborative and enjoyable throughout. We went through a couple of drafts before we concluded our plans.
Our home is approximately 1,700 sq ft which includes the basement. It was critical that we create a functional and yet compact layout, utilizing every inch of space in the home. Giancarlo had some terrific ideas to maximize the space and ensure that it gave us all of the rooms that we needed.
Giancarlo has substantial experience dealing with and knowledge of building codes and understanding the requirements when designing a home. This quality is valuable as it helps minimize decisions that may not be approved by the city. Giancarlo arranged all of our city permits and ensured that we were ready to begin construction by the time we closed on the property.
Giancarlo is not only an excellent designer, but he is also a great communicator. His primary focus is to ensure that his clients get the design that they want. I would highly recommend Giancarlo for anyone who is in need of someone to help them create the home they desire.
