DUAL has designed interior and exterior renovations for several homes in southern New England. This work explores the territory between what clients initially say they want, versus what they show us they need throughout the design process. Since everyone’s budget and time are both limited and critical to success, DUAL practices nimble collaboration to create better experiences of living.
DUAL has also delivered Pre-Design services such as conceptual visualization, cost comparison, program and site assessment, space-use analysis, and code review to help clients determine project feasibility, and "second opinion" review for existing designs.
The spaces of domestic life offer a rich territory for understanding how we live. The seemingly simple requirements of the home, we find, can reveal great insights and suggest compelling solutions. It is DUAL's humble privilege to enthusiastically shape space in the service of each homeowner's personal needs.
Small projects require no less attention to detail or expenditure of design energy than large projects. There is always another detail to be worked out, quite literally, wherever you turn. DUAL thrives on this challenge of accommodating a client’s wishes while working closely with the builders whose experience and commitment to craft we value and benefit from.
