From the clients:
“Creative Union designed and installed the front porch of our studio apartment last Fall. They came up with an exceptional design that used cedar wood planks and steel frames that matched the aesthetic of the apartment and its surrounding. In an urban spot like ours, the cedar wood looks and feels like a beautiful retreat, we can even smell the cedar wood when we enter and exit our home.
The design itself is beautiful, modern, and with a touch of a nature-oriented aesthetic that we so appreciate. The angles wall of the porch is great to lean against, with built-in benches providing a place to rest and entertain. We love that the top of the porch wall is also wide enough to hold a cup of coffee or small décor items if we wanted. The steel framing matches our apartment’s steel doors and other motifs, and best of all, the steel siding to our stairway has a cut-out pattern that is an abstract image of our beloved dog, Fable! That personal touch made what is an outstanding porch even more meaningful and personal for us. The icing on the cake is the fact that the wall design is modular, with removable sections to facilitate moving furniture in and out of our raised-level studio right from a truck in the case of any future move.
We highly recommend Creative Union, we have so much respect and admiration for their incredible talent, skill, attention to detail, design sense and expertise. It’s a privilege to get to enjoy their design on a daily basis!
