Our mission is to create the highest outcome through thoughtful and strategic approach to design.

Designing and building a new custom home or remodeling of your house is a complex process which can not be underestimated. It requires a deliberate appreciation of its complexities and close and collaborative approach.

Our goal is helping you not only avoid the costly mistakes, but to provide expertise and guidance to solutions and ideas which you might never have even considered.

Our approach to every project will not only increase the value of your property and return on your investment, It will also make it possible for your home to be appraised at a much higher rate than the total sum of all the expenses and costs of building or remodeling your home.

First Step:

So, where do you go from here?

It is not uncommon for people to know what they want to build, and have thought about it quite a bit – but just don’t know how best to start…

Or worse yet, launch into  expensive design services without  carefully establishing the groundwork and correct parameters for their project.

That's why we developed a process, as we came across many clients and projects which lacked a clear direction and understanding of cost implications and feasibility of the design.

It's called "Needs & Options Review".

We recently completed a whole house remodel with Habitat Architecture.
Attention to light and flow created spaces both beautiful and functional. Our kitchen is now a wonderful focal point of our home and it is a joy to gather in all of our new spaces. The new areas blend seamlessly with the old creating a historic home with all the perks of new home living (hello closets!) The expertise and experience of Hamid Kashani yielded results far beyond our expectations.
