You're cool, we're cool, let's work together. 

Transitional Cabinetry for A Modern Classic in San Francisco

Posted on February 17, 2016 by Jen Ganzhorn | 1 comment
We recently had the wonderful opportunity to design and build custom cabinetry and millwork for a client's home in San Francisco.  Among the many custom pieces we created was this beautiful doorbell housing. 
Welcome!  Let's go inside and take a look around...

Amidst the major changes being made, including adding skylights and removing walls to create a more open feel, many of the home's original elements were preserved including the ultra cool light fixtures. 


Have you heard the term "Transitional Cabinetry"? That terminology seems to be floating around more and more these days, and it is a style we really enjoy -- We love blending the old with the new to create modern cabinetry with elegance. 
We love what HGTV has to say about Transitional Cabinetry: "The transitional kitchen blends the old with the new and adds a touch of creativity to create a flexible gathering space."   Yes, please...!
Gorgeous grays with a mix of solid panel and glass doors...
Three cheers for a light- filled kitchen!  Thank you new skylights.
Modern bath cabinetry designed and built in our woodshop.
No such thing as too much hallway storage!
Modern cabinetry for the guest bath.
Those lights...!
When designing the remodel, we were excited to preserve the wood + glass window you see pictured (above, left).  Above (right) you will see the two custom built-ins we designed + built in a complimentary style.

Proudly built in our woodshop!

We Build This Stuff! Custom Millwork for Heron Haberdashery

Posted on September 05, 2015 by Jen Ganzhorn | 0 comments

We recently had the opportunity to fabricate all millwork, cabinetry, and fixtures for Heron Haberdashery in Corona Del Mar, CA.  This project provided an exciting mix of line and curve -- you know how we love that! 

This space was designed by Gensler Design, a company we've admired for a long time.  It was definitely an honor to be a part of a Gensler project, and to do our part in bringing their design to life.

Primary materials were Mozambique and Walnut with a clear finish.

We enjoyed building the "cloud" ceiling piece and appreciate what it brings to the space.

We shot this photo after wrapping up our installation. This photo offers a good sense of how sweeping shape comes together with line.

Detail shot of a custom wall panel we fabricated with built-in air vent.  Walnut panel was formed in-house with our moulding machine. 

This beautiful shop celebrated its grand opening in August 2015.  If you're in Corona Del Mar, we highly recommend you stop on by!            

Thanks to LM Quality Builders for inviting us to be a part of this project!
