For our kitchen/sunroom renovation, Christopher Arelt of Nautilus Architects transformed the outdated into the modern, and, in so doing, brought poetry into the new space. From initial consultation to the final touches, he was involved every step of the way.
Beyond listening to our vision for the project and producing architectural drawings that were detailed and thoughtful, Christopher identified and helped interview builders; brought a team of top-notch professionals to realize the design specifications; reviewed technical drawings down to the last inch and detail; advised on all aspects, including building materials, paint color, fixtures, and furnishings; and remained personally available throughout.
Christopher worked seamlessly and collaboratively with our builder, with whom he arranged regular meetings to review work progress and resolve on-site issues. He inspected each stage of the project to ensure the design was faithfully executed. As the project expanded, Christopher was responsive in designing a balcony that harmonized with the kitchen/sunroom and coordinating the lighting design in the adjacent living space. At all times, he was respectful of budget, sensitive to cost, and attentive to time management.
Our kitchen/sunroom is now the heart of our home – the space to where our family and friends are drawn. Thank you, Christopher and Nautilus Architects, for giving us more than we ever could have imagined.
