Our network structure aims to bring together uniquely talented collaborators from a variety of disciplines. The inherent flexibility of this collaborative approach grants us the ability to respond directly to each project’s specific needs.  Our passion for all aspects of the built environment, both majestic and modest, ensures that we always deliver a holistic, detailed oriented approach to designing each project and to provide our clients with a space that they truly feel comfortable in.

Our Team

Timothy Mitanidis

Timothy Mitanidis

Timothy insists that true beauty in architecture and design can only emerge through the deployment of dynamic responses to a multitude of project constraints. The causative social, economic and cultural systems which are constantly at play in the world around us must be thoughtfully addressed and carefully balanced to create a truly inspiring aesthetic which exists in harmony with the forces responsible for its creation.

Claudia Bader

Claudia Bader

Claudia believes that good design should never be obtrusive, but rather blend seamlessly with the experiences and emotions of those who interact with it. She believes that the most important quality of a good designer is their ability to listen, and interpret project demands into a responsive solution. Extraordinary works should always seem like natural extensions of the user experience and should never sacrifice quality for vanity.

Our Services

We pride ourselves in fostering exceptional relationships with our clients throughout design and construction. We believe that the most fruitful projects are defined by clear communication and objective goals. We are committed to a high standard of quality and provide innovative and economic solutions for every project.

 

  • Our project was riddled with nuance, a web of city codes, and unique considerations that come with an old heritage home. And as before, Creative Union's innovative, solution-oriented approach and design paved the way for a smooth process that was well communicated all along the way. From the time we engaged them through to project completion, they were supportive, insightful, thoughtful, and reliable.

     

  • Tim and Claudia from Creative Union Network were always so full of ideas and solutions when trying to get this small but ambitious project come to life. Good communicators, passionate and thorough, always going above and beyond, with great attention to detail.  

  • "I cannot say enough good about the incredible work Creative Union did for us and our home. Not only did they far exceed our expectation in every way in terms of the approach, design, and oversight of our new home’s renovations, but the end result was breathtaking and has been far better than we ever envisioned our dream home capable of."  

  • “They’re also just lovely people to be around.”  

  • “We just load these guys up with dreams  and they make them come true”  

  • "Creative Union Network assisted us with a large project that included the full renovation of two bathrooms, new floors, and a built-in cabinet solution (floor to ceiling) for a den in our hard loft. Creative Union worked with us from the initial conception / needs assessment all the way through to the very end of the project, managing construction issues every step of the way and helping us with the choice of materials for the smallest of details. The end result is truly breathtaking and has provided us with an obscene amount of storage, thus fulfilling our needs beyond our wildest expectations! Plus it looks cool, "like in a magazine" as one of our friends commented. Highly recommended."
