I contacted Design Nine Architects (DNA) to quarterback my renovation. We immediately clicked, and I knew that we were on the same page from a design perspective. I was looking for a modern spin on an old traditional post-war home—and we accomplished that on-budget, on-time, while creating a truly modern home that I know will stand the test of time.
The firm was hands-on consulting and collaborating with me on the design, to ensure that we stayed within the bounds of our budget, while still delivering a satisfying result.
Soon after, the vision was transposed into CAD drawings that we could review together along with the general contractor. This was key to ensuring that all parties were on the same page. And DNA impressed the contractor by providing enough details to facilitate accurate cost estimates—and reducing the potential of scope creep.
Throughout the process DNA helped me understand the proposed layout and select appropriate finishes. Weekly onsite visits ensured everything was going to plan, and it provided assurance that my investment was responsibly managed.
The final result is a well executed design made possible by DNA which had a unifying vision for the house. By deliberately demonstrating restraint, they created a fresh and modern look—exactly what I wanted. Everything fit together properly. Great flow. Integrated. Beautiful.
I’m glad that we were able to work together on this project—and it increased my appreciation to work with a professional firm that guided this project to success. Highly recommended.
