We love what we do. We are problem solvers with a unique ability to integrate both architecture and interior design — creating buildings and spaces that are functional and delight our clients with an eye for the simple and modern. Whether you know what you want or are starting with a blank slate, we’ve got the vision and savvy to deliver a result that you love.
After long and successful corporate careers, we longed to get back closer to the power of design and more intimate working relationships with our clients — really impacting their lives as well as ours in significant ways through design and buildings.
For Bruce it began with a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Carnegie Mellon University. With over twenty years of experience in corporate, commercial, mixed use and residential architecture and interiors for Skidmore Owings & Merrill and Gensler, he has lead teams on numerous high profile projects such as the New York Times Tower and Bank of America Building in NYC.
Michael has a BA in Fine Art from Stanford University and has over twenty years of experience and international travel as a Creative Director and Interior and Retail Designer for Bloomingdale’s, The Estee Lauder Companies, and Coty Inc. While traveling the world designing projects, he developed his talent and design sensibility and style.
Our collaboration on Design and Architecture projects began in 2000 and continues to flourish, excite us and enrich our lives.
Bringing his years of expertise and management style, Bruce now leads the architectural design, business and technical sides of Red House Design projects and is a registered architect in Massachusetts and New York.
Michael now imbues his creativity and passion with discerning taste and style into the visual aspects of our Red House Design projects.
From floorplans and building materials to hardware, fixtures and finishes we offer a comprehensive palette of design innovations that result in memorable living experiences. Our collaborative work style and varied design aesthetic platforms directly from our clients’ needs, budgets and aspirations — and always with an emphasis on sustainable and energy efficient building materials and practices. By designing calming and elegant spaces we have been able to transform the lives of our clients.
We have worked with numerous contractors and skilled tradesmen and women in the Berkshires/Columbia County/Northwestern Connecticut area and have assembled a team of exceptional craftspeople with an attention to quality, detail and service.
We would love to learn more about you and your project.
