This is a fabulous submission, showing obvious thought and attention to detail throughout. Good job with the boards showing the flow, building permit restrictions, and delivering what we asked for. The additions and existing space are really utilized well, maximizing the potential for our home. I really like the use of the back corner of the house for the dining room, showcasing the best view and taking advantage of the natural light. That is a great idea, as is the addition of a large glass door leading onto the patio. The amount of storage captured in the kitchen is awesome and much needed. However, there is a tradeoff as we like other submissions that have a more open floor plan on the ground floor. The office space that was submitted is also beautiful, but does chop the floor up a bit, especially for guests. We would consider using the proposed office space as part of the living area and using bedroom number 2 as an office for the time being. The flow of this house works really well. We hadn't decided if we want our master on the first or ground floor, so this design really helped us visual a good first floor solution. This submission had the best graphics and descriptions by far. Other designers provided diagrams showing new/existing walls, but none clearly laid out a three step plan as Arc 21 did. Thank you to Arc 21 for providing such a quality design and carefully following our requests and the city's guidelines/restrictions.
This designer read the brief and did an excellent execution. He or she took into account the desired characteristics and found a beautiful, integrated solution. I would work again with this designer.
Thank you very much for the submission - this design is exactly what I was looking for. Would love the original files if you can please send. Thank you!
Exceptional design. We love it. We will have to see if it is too close to creek. Thanks for a beautiful design, and paying attention to our preferences!
There is much to love about this. I am happy that it will allow us all to sit at the table together but am a fan of separate dining rooms. I love the windows facing the garden and the bay windows. The kitchen space is wonderful and the placement of the elevator at the head of the stairs is perfect.
Dear Arc 391, Congratulation, the choice has been a difficult one, we want to thank you for your participation to the Cocteau 2.0 competition and the great material you have submitted. Regards, Mikael.
