Crossings Architecture, Ferndale, MI, US, Architectural Designer/Detailer
I accompanied Architect Jeff Royer in the interior design of a large (30,000sf) single family home in Grosse Ile, MI. We designed all of the plaster moldings, a large 2-story wood-paneled library, Master suite built-in furniture, etc. We worked extensively with the lead architect, interior decorator & many of the trades. This project was fast-tracked and meeting key deadlines was critical. Unfortunately, the project was stalled when the down turn of the economy caught up to the clients.
