Introduction: I believe design is about manipulating spaces to fit the needs of the people who inhabit them. Since 2013 I've been designing/remodeling clean modern/transitional spaces that not only look beautiful but function perfectly. My process seeks to bring our ideas together to create a "high contrasting environment". I do this by using light/shadow, indoor/outdoor spaces, and a mixture of materials that highlight their use and function. In all of my projects, I utilize 3D software, in addition to traditional hand sketch techniques, to make sure you have the best idea possible of what your space will look like when it's completed.

Michael, is great to work with. He helped us with permitting and drawings for a added room project. What we appreciated is the fact that he is very professional and proactive with his work. He is detailed and gives attention to details. Not to mention he has excellent customer service and is great to work with

I am most impressed! We only just got started but already I have total confidence in him and find him to be very amiable and a pleasure to work with, very cooperative, a good listener, and polite. Also a very good attitude - a "can do" attitude, willing to please, caring about what it is I want done. He is also professional and knowledgeable. His past projects look excellent so I know he can do the job! Highly recommend him! He will be my go-to architect now.

Details: Design drawings • Remodel of a few rooms • Residential • Less than 500 sq ft

1to1 Design Studio was quick and efficient. What Kurt provided was beyond my expectation. I would definitely work with him again.

I had 1to1 design a site plan for my new construction build on a property we recently purchased. They worked through the village review process and was always very helpful and prompt with getting me a design that I was comfortable with. Highly recommend!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Typically fees range from 3-12% of the estimated retail construction costs with the higher percentages being applied to the lower budgets. This of course is a general rule and is very dependant on the intricacy of the design and what services you would like 1to1 to provide. We try to make our proposals as easy to follow as possible so you understand exactly what you are and are not getting. Police, Fire Fighters and Active Duty/Veteran Military members always receive a 15% discount on all fees. If you're a Marine it's 17.75% My hourly rate is billed at $135hr

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    All projects start with an initial meet and greet. COVID has made this a bit difficult but I do prefer to be on-site to get a feel for everything from site conditions to how your daily routines are affected by the existing home. Once you approve the fee proposal we will go through a questionnaire so I can really understand how your family intends to use the space and what you ultimately want out of the home. I want to design a home for you... not whomever you may sell it to in the future. At this point, we start the process of getting into the proposed floor plan sketches. Depending on the extent of the project this may be hand sketch to quickly get us in the right direction or it could go right into our 3D software allowing us to look at the space from all angles during the design process.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied Architecture, worked for an Architect, and ultimately fell in love with, and missed the built environment. I have spent the last few years, since 2013 working with/for Builders who are passionate about design. I've provided Construction Documents for these contractors while also working side by side with them during the construction process making sure what is built functions, and looks amazing.
