Final shot at our Inverness Way Resdience photo shoot

Oct 3, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

I snuck a photo of Cesar's laptop during our last dusk shot of the Inverness Way Residence last week. It was a brief, magical moment when the house and sky both had a warm glow. Thanks again Cesar for a successful shoot!⠀

Featured on Houzz: Elderly-Friendly Spaces for Loved Ones who Live on Their Own

Oct 2, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

Our 12th Street Residence is featured in a new Houzz articled called "Elderly-Friendly Spaces for Loved Ones who Live on Their Own". Recently, we've definitely seen an increase in clients who come to us wanting aging-in-place features, long-term planning, and multi-generation homes. The key is to make universal access features a design element that is enjoyed and used by everyone in the home. We love working with our clients to ensure comfort and ease in their environment for years to come!

Second floor framing is taking place at our Gilbert Avenue Residence, and it's giving us a preview of the trees and sky we'll be seeing through the bedroom windows.

Checking out the full scale scale mock-up of the tongue-and-groove cedar entry door at our Santa Margarita Avenue Residence, after the owner and I moved the pieces around for texture and balance. Approved!

Featured on Houzz: 12 Ideas from Stunning Fall Gardens

Sep 14, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

Our Waverley Street Residence was just featured in a Houzz article titled "12 Ideas from Stunning Fall Gardens". It's true that the persimmon tree bears brilliant orange fruit, and extends the enjoyment of this courtyard well into the fall season. And it also helps to have architectural elements, such as the exposed carport rafters, echo and enhance the warm tones of fall.
