who we are
Meet Lucynda Moore, Chief Creative OfficerOnce upon a time, many years ago, I had a real job. I don’t recommend it – the regular hours, steady paycheck, weekends at home…I am much better suited to not working in a suit- pajamas work best-just don’t drop in unexpectedly!
When I was twelve, out in Montana with my Granddad, we were exploring a new development in the mountain foothills and I asked “Who created these cool houses?” They were so different from any I knew. My Granddad replied “An architect.” I was hooked, I knew then that was my calling.
My last real job ended in anticipation of our firstborn and I opened my first office nearly twenty years ago in our home at the time, a tiny vintage 1920's Cape Cod in Neenah, Wisconsin. It had been remodeled awkwardly by a builder so I was constantly redesigning it in my head. I still remember leaning over my drafting table, looking ten months pregnant, trying to finish a project the day before I was scheduled to give birth. Never fear, my husband John delivered the design - ON TIME - the next day (after I had our firstborn of course!).
As my oldest son grew, so did my residential architectural practice - mom, babe and usually dog attended meetings with homeowners seeking to create unique spaces that reflected their lifestyle.
Vintage neighborhoods with charm and sought after details are my skill set - both redesigned and brand new. I problem solve – with a practical focus on circulation and flow while adding design, thoughtfulness and flair. It’s a pleasure to bring these wonderful homes into the new millennium so that they are enhanced by design and comfortably enjoyed by the families being sheltered by them.
After moves to Atlanta ( where son number two appeared ) and then on to Greenville, SC (additional dogs added to family along the way), my skill and practice continued to grow.
One of my chief goals in remodeling a home is that the additions fit into the existing home and neighborhood. Upon completion, the changes fit seamlessly as if they had been designed that way originally.
Your home design should be all about you. A carefully thought out design for your family and your lifestyle. Cookie cutters belong in bakeries not in residential design. My philosophy is design as personal and unique as a fingerprint.
