What got you started in custom homebuilding?
Originating in real estate development and the love for transforming a piece of land into a real community. From there it was a natural progression into elevating those same communities through individual luxury home design that was unique, yet cohesive with the feel of the overall neighborhood & surroundings.
What inspires and influences your work?
The lifestyle of our homeowners is always the most influential component when designing a property. First and foremost a home needs to be a place for productivity, reprieve and comfort to our clients – whatever that may entail. Weaving the client’s everyday lifestyle into the style and aesthetic of the home is integral in creating each individual space.
We also find it extremely important to have the land in which the home sits inspire the design, bringing the topography and views from the outside in so that they become one and the same…not just a beautiful home that could sit on any lot, but a stunning and seamless property.
How would you describe your build style?
Built on a foundation of openness, experience, trust and thoughtful process we have developed a fun building process that is strategically executed to alleviate stress and translates to a seamless partnership and fun sense of friendship with our clients.
Why do you think your clients choose you as their builder?
Simply our team. Our highly experienced team is the most down to earth, honest and hardworking group of people, who truly value each and every home, homeowner and each other.
What are some of your projects or accomplishments you’re most proud of?
The home we built for a wonderful client as they were preparing to get married (they literally got married halfway through construction!) and helping them to envision what their new adventure in life together could encompass…spoiler alert that ‘nursery’ we staged for the Dream Home is now home to an adorable baby girl.
We are also pretty proud of the 88 fully custom luxury condominiums our BohLand Companies team completed in the last four years (with a hotel and restaurant for good measure).
What architectural styles do you like best and why?
Over the past few years, we have been extremely fortunate to create homes of distinct taste and style right alongside each other… heavy wood detailed European traditional to ultra sleek Contemporary.
Our team seems to have a current fondness for the ‘rustic contemporary’ designs that have been interpreted to wide open, gallery like layouts with sleek lines created using softer more rustic reclaimed materials. Although, we are also very much enjoying our most recent French Country home with its tumbled stone floors and leaded glass interior transoms.
What are some of your favorite trends you’re seeing this year?
True ‘working’ spaces that welcome both everyday busy lifestyles, as well as effortlessly transition into evening soirees with your most discerning guests. We love seeing the crafting of very intentional spaces and how each of those fit that client. Say a craft beer pub or a craft room?
Of course we have to mention our ever evolving fondness for the bright and fun wallcoverings and unique materials that are coming to market.
What do you think are some of the most important elements of a successful build team?
Clarity and expertise in roles, but also a small close knit team that has a willingness to contribute to any and every degree towards the happiness of our clients. We constantly strive to better educate ourselves in product innovation, marketing conditions and design trends.
What do you wish others knew about your company?
We wish they knew that the experience and success we’ve had in our highly technical and complex luxury multi-family projects is directly reflected in our stunning custom homes. These projects originated from our love for custom homebuilding, and that to this day every ounce of detailing, planning, team experience and craftsmanship is at the core of each individual home we build. Whether it be a 60-unit luxury building or an impeccably designed quaint single-family home… ingenuity, service and construction quality are set to the absolute highest standards.
What makes you most proud to be a builder?
Happy homeowners! When a client chooses you to build what is typically their largest and most personal investment, it is an incredible honor and the memories we see our previous clients making in their custom homes is what we are easily most proud of.
