Creating a place that will be the backdrop for family memories is an important experience.  Greta and Brian came to AMEK with architect plans and a lot, so AMEK’s charge was to refine and improve the layout to match the lifestyle of a young professional family.

See that beautiful built-in buffet under the artful steps?  That’s AMEK’s LIfeDesign™ infusing function and beauty in a space that often is overlooked. The glass wall on the second-story music room overlooking the living room was an intentional way to keep the spaces connected in a safe way for kids rather than a half wall as originally designed.  It’s the thoughtful design ideas that make all the difference when it’s time to live and create memories.

Our LifeDesign™ Process: Notes From Our Homeowners

We worked with our architect and AMEK to create a home that we envisioned as the home we would be in for many years, said Greta.  “AMEK brought much insight and experience to the process. Custom homes are the result of many hours of many creative minds.  The details both inside and out reflect what makes our home unique to our family and what AMEK was able to do was bring to life what we had envisioned.”
