It is more than 20 years since we first worked with Friedemann on a major kitchen renovation. Both our 2 daughters and us enjoyed cooking and our small galley kitchen, the style of that time, but not up to all our activities. We decided to expand the kitchen with a small addition and that was when we discovered Friedemann. We explained what features were important to us; this was to be a working kitchen, function and efficiency were priorities. He did wonders with the space he had to work with. His advice on appliances has stood the test of time, his design and use of space created a WOW kitchen. Styles have changed, but good design lasts – we love our kitchen; visitors still say, “it's a kitchen to die for”.
Last fall we decided that our bathrooms (from the 70s) needed a facelift, so we visited Friedemann again. This time there was no extra space to work with, but Freidmann came up with some really innovative renovations and created spa-like spaces. He walked us through the maze of fixtures and tile options. These show rooms can be intimidating to the novice, but Friedemann came up with some stunning combinations, which we bounced around until we were satisfied. His design staff is very knowledgeable about products and gave excellent advice on the smaller details and also supervised deliveries and coordinated the work site activities. The tile and cabinet installers he subcontracted are artists. They took ownership and pride in their work and persisted until they were satisfied; their craftsmanship will be appreciated for years to come.
