Custom Home Services

  1. Design Coordination

    Architectural Design Coordination

    In order to achieve an integrated look and feel of a home, the design process must be a part of planning from conception to completion.

    Understanding a client’s aesthetic desires and the ultimate feel their home should possess is something that we focus on right from the start. Our signature style combines traditional and modern elements to create a transitional look that is unique and clean, yet warm and inviting. Finding just the right upscale finishes, treatments, millwork, hardware, cabinetry, and countertops is what sets Michael Lauren apart from the rest. We pride ourselves on not just using the run of the mill builder grade finishes, but rather putting the time and energy into finding just the right fixtures and finishes to set the tone of the house. We work with clients to make sure the soft furnishings that fill the home will work with the ‘hard’ surfaces installed, thus creating a streamlined and unified residence that flows naturally. The final product is always a graceful home filled with timeless elegance that also meets the needs and desires of the clients both inside and out.

The firm also has a relentless focus on construction quality, overseeing a network of high quality subcontractors that share its focus on delivering the highest quality construction services that produce impeccable custom homes for our clients. This design centric approach sets Michael Lauren apart from its peers who typically focus on design as a necessary afterthought at the end of the construction process when it is too late to create a cohesive overall design scheme.
