Pacific Heights Modern - Hallway

We heard from the contractors that the plans created by ScavulloDesign were always far-and-away more thorough and accurate than those they were handed in most of their projects, which of course, makes it much easier to bring in a project on time and within the budget. Everyone was excellent in dealing with “surprises” of which there were a number in this renovation. ScavulloDesign was great when it came to the inevitable “punch list”…taking responsibility for getting things done just right.


Our Process

The success of a project relies on a tightly disciplined project management process. Below is an in-depth look into what you can expect when working with us.

  1. Programming

    This is when we define the project scope by listening to your needs, vision, and aspirations for your home. We will discuss your lifestyle, color and stylistic preferences, family needs, art collections, notable heirlooms, and any other elements of interest. We will also coordinate with the project team (architect, contractor, lighting designer, landscape designer) to determine how the team will collaborate to meet your project goals.
