TriVistaUSA Design + Build
How do your respective talents complement each other to the benefit of your clients?
My background is music, Deborah’s is visual arts. Because we’re both grounded in the creative arts, we are constantly thinking out of the box and pushing for better solutions for our clients’ home remodeling needs. We don’t settle.
Our skills are different: Deborah easily makes something look great and integrated, while I’m always listening for how things can be more comprehensive. When we carefully listen to the client, the solutions we provide relate more directly to what the problems have been. For example, if your children are on multiple sports teams, I’m going to design a different mudroom or drop-off area where the family enters the house than I would if your children had no interest in sports whatsoever. Similarly, if the client entertains often for many other families, the home will be designed differently than it would for a family that doesn’t. It’s about good design + your family needs = customized functionality.
This individualized approach has allowed us to do award-winning design/build work for our clients—completely dedicated to pairing creative design solutions with high quality builds.
How do your artistic backgrounds relate to your day-to-day work?
Good design usually requires many iterations to distill design or construction down to its essential elements. Ultimately, it comes down to matching functionality and aesthetics with the client’s lifestyle. For example, if you are attracted to any products you buy—that’s good design. When time is invested to make the product look good, that usually means that the same care is taken in every aspect of that product. Better design often means better function, efficiency and beautiful aesthetics. Why shouldn’t our clients wake up every morning in a beautifully designed space that they love to be in?
