Custom Interior Designs including Kitchen and Bathrooms in Arcadia

By , August 6, 2012 2:06 pm

We did a remodel for an entire home in Arcadia, CA for a very sweet family that wanted their home done with modern touches, distinctive finishes and user-friendly space planning.  We worked closely with the architect and contractors to help the family create their dream home and this is what came up with!  This interior design project was a lot of fun and it’s great to see that beautiful and modern can also be budget-friendly!

Design Board for Harris Cafe

By , August 2, 2012 2:53 pm

Hey there!  We’ve been pretty busy over here at Enliven Studios working on some fantastic projects!

This is a presentation design board for a cafe on the ground floor of an office building in the City of Industry.  It has been very exciting working with Twen Ma Architects putting together a floor plan, finishes and elevations to reflect our clients needs!  They were looking for a 1950′s inspired checkerboard diner feel combined with a modern tea and noodles type of cafe!  This was such a fun challenge because one wouldn’t think the two could come together so elegantly.

Take a look and let us know how we did on the presentation board!  We are looking forward to breaking ground and getting construction underway so you can see the finished product :)

Greenhouse Garden Supply Exterior Signage, Logo, Interior and Exterior Color

By , May 31, 2010 11:37 am

I recently had the opportunity to take over on a project for a garden supply warehouse in Sacramento, CA.  They originally had a completely different scheme, signage and logo, then hired me to make it a profitable, professional and welcoming retail space.  Previously, they had the signage proposed in a lime green as well as the trim for the exterior in a different, very unattractive lime green.  We repainted the whole exterior and I sorted out the signage and interior color scheme.  The interior photos to follow, for now – the exterior.

Opening soon: The  Greenhouse Garden Supply

Finish Boards for Briarcliff Condos in the South Bay

By , March 16, 2010 10:59 pm

During my time at Brenda Bell & Associates,  we had this on-going project fixing up these really neat condos in the South Bay.  Each year it seemed we were making improvements on the building, whether it was the four-floor lobby remodel or the shared tenant hallways, there was always a way we could continue to make Briarcliff condos a great looking place, and a wonderful home for the tenants to come home to.  Here are some option boards that I made for their exterior hardscape & concrete designs, as well as shared tenant hallway paint and carpet designs that made this such a fun and unique project.

Exterior Elevations for Venice Craftsman Residence

By , September 15, 2009 2:57 pm

Here I did two options of one residential exterior in Venice, CA for Brenda Bell & Associates.  Our client wanted to see multiple options in the Craftsman-style that already existed on her home, yet was not apparent in the front entry design.  These options provided her with some much-needed curb appeal with sophistication and cohesiveness.

Option one has a centered-step entry with a wide, wrapped porch, whereas the second option has right side steps that enter to a covered porch entry.

CDs for Chinese Cafe in Temple City

By , September 2, 2009 11:39 am

Finally!  I am finally finished with the construction documents with Twen Ma Architects for the Kang Kang Cafe in Temple City, CA.  Where the heck is Temple City?  Well, it’s somewhere between Pasadena and West Covina :)

This is an existing building remodel at the downtown city center, with an entrance from the garage parking and also from the street.  We’re finalizing finishes right now, but it’s a streamlined and modern design for a simple and quick dining solution.   Have a look!  I can’t wait – in a couple months I get to dine here!

These images are quick Photoshop mock-ups for a commercial exterior in Santa Monica.  These mock-ups range from contemporary to more traditional in color and style, including changes in the exterior lighting, doors and awnings.  The first image is the dated, existing exterior to be modified.

Simi Valley Shopping Center As-Builts

By , July 21, 2009 4:01 pm

Here are three as-built drawings that I created and input into AutoCAD, based on field verification and measuring by hand.  These shopping center suites are located in Simi Valley and were formerly leased by such companies as Starbucks and Foot Locker.  These as-built drawings were used for leasing documents commissioned by the leasing and property management companies.centrecourt-1252-1-102208-001b
