Steve Ginn Architects places great importance on collaborating with clients, as each and every project is shaped by clients' aspirations. For every project, we study each site location, making sure that the surroundings inform the project — and vice versa. Whether it's a residential, commercial, religious or retail project, we use durable materials and apply creative design solutions, only pairing with the best builders.
We believe in our work, and we're humbled and grateful for the recognition we've received over the years. We were one of Hanley Wood's 2013 Watermark Grand Award winners, featured in issue of BUILDER magazine for the Woolworth Kitchen. The original kitchen was a long, narrow and cluttered space with dated decoration. The client wanted to use the existing space to create a clean, contemporary kitchen and add a simple, organized home office while allowing for ease of mobility for their son in a wheelchair.
The design's central focal point is a custom concrete island, framed from above by laminated maple ceiling panels. The island was designed in such a way to promote ease of use for the disabled. Added on to the kitchen is a custom operable handicapped ramp which is simple, manual and pleasing to the eye. The final result is a meticulously crafted interior that meets the client's demanding expectations to both celebrate and simplify the working side of the family home.
For clients wondering what it is like to work with Steven Ginn Architects, we would like to assure you that we are dedicated to providing quality service within our clients' budgets and time frames.
