RESIDENTIAL INTERIOR DESIGN + RENOVATION

A lifetime of travel and observations has imbued Lisa with a keen awareness of how we respond to the spaces in which we live and work. We approach every project, whether it’s a renovation, a ground-up residence, or the redevelopment of a space or structure with a holistic, comprehensive approach.

Our goal is to partner with our clients to help them realize their dream spaces by bringing our experience, resources and unique vision to the collaborative process. This results in spaces that feel fresh, authentic and elegantly sophisticated. While new construction is a significant part of our processes, interior renovation of existing properties makes up the majority of our residential portfolio.

ANATOMY OF PROJECT

STEP 1

DISCOVERY
Our first step takes a holistic approach to understanding your needs, wants and goals for your project. Research and interviews inform the solutions and strategies we’ll develop to meet your goals.

STEP 2

SCHEMATIC DESIGN
With your programming in place, we begin to explore basic concepts that engage the experience desired, the three-dimensional story, traffic flow, and initial conceptual schemes.

STEP 3

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
Once a schematic concept has been approved, we begin development of the design, filling in details to flesh out the concept. Plans, early documents and schemes form at this phase, and a clear picture is created of the actual project.

STEP 4

DOCUMENTATION
At the point where the development is approved, our documentation begins. This involves construction documents, specifications, and often review/selection of any additional consultants and the construction team.

STEP 5

CONSTRUCTION + PROCUREMENT
In this phase we become your advocate, engaging as the primary client contact representative to all parties, overseeing all contractors, vendors, artisans, and additional consultants. This ensures that the project is completed as designed, on time, and within budgets.

STEP 6

INSTALLATION + DELIVERY
Similar to the previous step, we oversee an entire turnkey installation process, ensuring that every last detail is in place, the property is installed properly, and the project is fully realized.

HOSPITALITY DESIGN

Born in La Jolla, but raised abroad, Lisa quickly became a global nomad, obsessed with understanding the experience of travel, and design’s impact on the traveler’s experience. After training in Europe, she honed her skills on large business properties such as Portman’s Marriott Times Square, the LA Bonaventure, multiple Ritz Carltons, and other 5 star properties both in the US and internationally.

In 1999 Lisa, together with her business partner and co-founder, David Shapiro, formed their own firm to emphasize development of properties that would come to define the Luxury Boutique market segment. With the launch of their very first property in 2001, they began garnering the highest praises of the industry, and all of their subsequent projects have broken boundaries and set revenue and profit records, proving their mantra…

“GREAT DESIGN CREATES GREAT BUSINESS.”
