When it came time in 2005 to renovate the kitchen in our century home, Friedemann proposed a design that optimized the use of space while blending naturally with the traditional characteristics of the house, a combination that ultimately won the Design First team an award for their work. Beyond the design, Friedemann delivered on his promise to manage all aspects of the renovation, leaving us to enjoy the emergence of our spectacular new kitchen, on time and on budget. Visitors inevitably comment on the kitchen, particularly its timeless quality and the way it integrates with the rest of our home. Given our high level of satisfaction, Design First was a natural choice when it came time in 2010 to renovate our master bath. Once again, Friedemann’s creative use of space and attention to detail produced a first class outcome.
