Furniture Design
We work closely with our clients to design furniture that combines practical needs with a highly individual expression of taste.

Graphic Design
We create visual concepts to communicate ideas that inspire, inform, or captivate consumers. Our designs help make an project recognizable by selecting the right color, images, or logo designs that represent a particular idea or identity to be used in advertising and promotions.

From vision to realization, we are committed to meeting your design needs, to turn concepts into practical built solutions. To ensure the highest level of design, each step of a project receives the personal attention of the firm's principal, Martin Casteran, who brings more than thirty years of experience to the practice.

Design Development + Design Review
Design development takes place when you approve the schematic design. Our consultant team produces their schematic designs, and we produce hard-line drawings to describe the size and character of your project. We review a copy of the Design Review submittal package to you.
We represent you in the Design Review process, this may include neighborhood or community meetings to explain the project and answer questions.

Construction Documents
The major portion of our work begins after we receive Design Review approval. We produce detailed construction drawings and written specifications in coordination with consultants. We provide structural engineering working drawings and calculations. Securing of required construction permits include submittals of documents and meetings with Building and Safety officials and other agencies as deemed necessary.

During the construction phase, we answer requests for information, administer submittals and meet with you, the general contractor, the city inspectors and the engineers when needed. We remain very detail oriented during the construction phase, assuring that each project stays true to the design vision and remains cost-conscious, creating the optimal result for each job.
