Residential Services

You probably have many ideas of what you'd like your home to be. Maybe it's cozy and warm with reading nooks tucked into unexpected places and a fireplace in every room. Or perhaps it's sleek and clean with state-of-the-art appliances and the latest technological systems. Whatever you've envisioned, we can help make your dreams a reality.

Studio CrowleyHall specializes in residential design, ranging from bathroom remodels and kitchen additions to complete house renovations and new estates. We help homeowners explore their needs and options, renovate or expand their existing homes, build new homes, and integrate custom features into their surroundings.

From designing exactly what you need and want to ensuring it is built to the highest standards, we can help you every step of the way. Whether you want to focus on a small project, a new structure from the ground up, or something in between, we'll help you do these things while acting sustainably, responsibly, and creatively.

Our specific services include:


Needs & Options Assessment

Our homes are where we live, work, love, have families, and take out the trash. But lifestyles change and buildings need to change with them. We gain partners, have babies, learn new hobbies, and sometimes need to change our homes to address our new way of life. Whatever your new lifestyle, Studio CrowleyHall can help.

During our Needs and Options Assessment project, we can help you identify the essence and spirit of who you are and provide options for how that may be embodied in your home. We'll work with you to explore your needs, determine the exact spaces that fit these needs, and provide recommendations for how to proceed, whether renovating or expanding your existing home or building new.

We understand the myriad elements that must be factored into your decision-making process, including budgets, schedules, and code requirements, and we'll ensure each element is carefully considered as we develop our recommendations. We'll guide you through the maze of variables and options, synthesize your needs and wishes, and help you determine the best path to take.


Renovations and Additions

Our collaborative process will ensure that your ideas and goals are reflected in the designs we create for your home. 

We'll start by doing an in-depth analysis of your property, including precise measuring of the areas to be affected so that we may create accurate drawings of existing conditions. We may also work with engineering consultants to evaluate existing systems, such as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing. 

Simultaneously, we'll work hand-in-hand with you to establish and prioritize a list of needs for your home to ensure that our design solutions address your and your family's current and future plans.

Once a design for your home is established, we will provide detailed technical drawings that we can use to identify and hire a building contractor, to obtain regulatory permits, and to construct the building. 

When construction begins, we'll oversee the process to ensure that our design intent is accurately carried out. We'll make sure that you understand what is going on and what input is required from you as we proceed.


New Home Construction

We understand how overwhelming it can be to manage all the elements that must be considered when building from scratch. We'll start by establishing exactly what you and your family need in your new home and how to prioritize this list of needs. From there, we can help you locate the right property on which to build, if you don't already have it in your possession.

After the property is secured, we can evaluate how to best use it to fit your specific needs—considering things such as building location, site access points, and roads, as well as environmental aspects such as wind direction, sun angles, and views. Using this information, we'll create a master plan—drawings showing new design alternatives (including buildings, roads and landscape features such as swimming pools and gardens), which incorporate existing site elements that are to remain.

Once an option is selected, we'll begin to design specific buildings, using the master plan to guide us as we delve into the details. During this phase, we will integrate your functional needs and aesthetic goals with the structural, zoning and building code requirements and construction method options, developing the beginnings of an architecture that reflects who you are. And whatever your priorities—cost, functionality or beauty—we'll develop a design solution that is tailored to your exact needs.

When the design phase is complete, we'll develop detailed technical drawings that accurately describe the design and technical quality of the building. These can be used to identify and hire a building contractor, obtain regulatory permits, and ultimately, to construct the building. If you need to appear before design or zoning review boards, we'll develop the presentation necessary to get the approval we need. 

Once construction begins, we'll oversee the process to ensure that the design intent is accurately carried through to final completion of the building.


Custom Feature Design

Drawing from a background in fine arts and construction, we can design and create custom pieces for any room in the house. Allow us to help you add that customized element to your home, using art to further express the personality of you and your family.

Our custom feature design services include:

 • Custom Pieces—We can add a richness and depth to your home through the use of a custom tile mosaic, painting, fresco, or mural. Artistic floors, ceilings, walls—even windows—can add just the unique touch to your new space. 

 • Mural Facilitation—Perhaps you would like your family members to help develop a special mural for your home. We can coordinate this process to ensure a positive outcome and a whole lot of fun in the process. 

 • Custom Furniture—For dining areas, living rooms, and other sensitive areas requiring a more customized touch, we can create pieces of furniture to meet your unique needs. 

 • Individual Art Work—Choose from our gallery of landscape painting and artwork to find a piece that's appropriate for your home. We can also create custom artwork that is tailored to fit your specific needs.

Whatever your taste and desires, we can help you choose the custom feature design service that's perfect for you.
