Latest Houzz article features our Stannage Avenue Residence

Oct 16, 2015 by Hiromi Ogawa

 

There are many creative storage solutions in this article, and we're honored to be included. 

The double-duty bench is a great idea, particularly where space is at a premium.  We like the combination of open and closed storage, because it's nice to hide away some of the clutter.  The article recommends drawers, but sliding doors have worked equally well for our designs.  You can see more photos and read about the Stannage Avenue Residence project on our website.

Featured on Houzz: 7 Kitchen Flooring Materials to Boost Your Cooking Comfort

Aug 7, 2014 by Hiromi Ogawa

12th Street Residence Kitchen 1

The Novak Residence kitchen has been featured again on Houzz, in an article called "7 Kitchen Flooring Materials to Boost Your Cooking Comfort".  The Flexco rubber floor is a big hit with the owners, who are avid cooks.  They preferred a tough, yet soft surface like rubber over the idea of continuing the wood flooring, since they wanted the kitchen to withstand spills, stains, and drops, yet still be comfortable for their no-shoes barefoot lifestyle with a young child underfoot. 

Other flooring materials featured in the article include favorites we have used in kitchens and throughout the house: cork, bamboo, and wood. 

Making Use of the Space Under the Stairs

We were just featured in an article called "Turn Wasted Space into Functional Storage", where they use our Neilson Street Residence project as one solution for using the underutilized space under the stairs. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other examples in the article were also inspiring, such as a play house, pull-out pantry, and bookshelves.  It's always nice to take advantage of unused spaces, and make something special that is unique to the home.

The Marin Avenue Residence was featured in an article called "Houzz Tour: Finding the Flow in Berkeley".  We enjoyed answering some detailed questions about the project's unique qualities, as well as our design process.  The article covers a lot of ground, and we appreciate the detailed tour of one of our favorite projects.  We loved working with the owners and continue our collaboration through their business, Bay Reach Homes.

Neilson Street Kitchen Featured on Houzz!

Dec 10, 2013 by Hiromi Ogawa

The Neilson Street Residence kitchen was featured in a Houzz article called “Kitchen Color: 15 Ravishing Red Backsplashes”.  We frequently use Hakatai tile in our projects, and this Crimson Blend (one of their standard blended mosaic tiles) provides a nice, textural accent.  It matches the red cord on the Caravaggio pendants, which are also lovely!

Featured on Houzz: Brew a Café Look at Home

Sep 30, 2013 by Hiromi Ogawa

The Novak Residence kitchen has been featured again on Houzz, in an article called "Brew a Café Look at Home".  The indoor-outdoor feel of sidewalk cafes is pretty special, and that's exactly what we tried to recreate in this kitchen remodel.  We know the owners love that space, too!

Novak kitchen is featured again on Houzz!

Sep 3, 2013 by Hiromi Ogawa

The Novak Residence kitchen has a lot of sweet moments, but we get a lot of inquiries about the rubber flooring in particular.  It's commonly used in commercial applications, but we like the look and feel in homes, too.  We've done several kitchens with rubber flooring, and have even used them as a kitchen backsplash!  You can read the Houzz article (which features other kitchen flooring solutions), or see before and after photos of the project.

Houzz featured our Novak Residence project on an article about various uses for rubber in a home.  We have used rubber flooring in a few of our projects, and we're a big fan!  It's pretty, utilitarian, and soft underfoot.  Let us know if you have other uses for rubber materials in your home.
