Architecture and interior design go hand in hand when crafting spaces that are beautiful, livable, and reflect the taste and personality of the client. Founding partners and licensed architects, Mark Carlson and Bob Wetmore are also licensed interior designers in the state of Texas. Their design approach has always blended architectural and interior design disciplines. The interior design team at Cornerstone Architects, now led by registered Interior Designer Jennifer Garner, offers clients the option for interior finish and fixture selection consulting services as well as furnishings services to provide a seamless collaboration between architecture and interiors.
Our interior design team, skilled at guiding clients through the process of making all selections for construction of the project, assess each client’s personality, lifestyle, and project requirements. An overall design concept is created for each space, or entire project, that is unique to each client, well thought out and complete. Clients can easily visualize selections using digital design “look books”, supplemented with actual samples to convey the design concept. Approved selections are prepared and include scaled, labeled drawings, specifications and supporting details. Our consulting services include all aspects of coordinating the design through to completion. Included are job site visits and inspections, contractor communications, and dealing with the small, yet important details that go along with any construction project.
During the architectural design phase, the interior design team collaborates with the architectural team to ensure the final plans take into account furnishings, art placement and specialty lighting. Upon completion of the construction finish selections, our interior design team can assist with the finishing touches with our furnishing services aimed at selecting furnishings that meet the client’s desired look and needs.
