In February 2009, Michael was retained by a young couple starting a family and building a new 5,000 square foot home with Mangan Builders, a generational north side residential developer. Ground was just broken, and the team quickly started the design of a transitional home for a growing family. The goal was to create functional spaces with timeless and classic elements on each level of the home. Michael completely furnished the entire home after designing numerous architectural elements on behalf of the homeowners. The clients clearly understood the stages of the home building process and continued through art procurement and accessory selections to ensure thoroughly completed spaces.
