Are you unsure of what you can do on your property or with a potential commercial space? Do you know what you would like to do, but are unsure of the project costs? Are you looking to purchase a home and in need of expert advice to guide your decision-making process?
These are just some of the ways to help residential and commercial clients to understand potential project feasibility, options, and costs. We start every project with these services and also offer them as stand alone services along with conceptual design to empower our clients to make educated project decisions.
We get the hospitality environment. Between our key staff members we have designed, developed, and coordinated retail and restaurant concepts, branding, fixturing, and national and international roll-outs for some of the biggest and most-successful brands.
We work side-by-side with our client’s team to produce and refine their brand concept so that their retail space is consistent with their brand image and successfully speaks to their target customer.
We hired Letter Four to do a ton of work over the whole of our house… They got the job done immaculately, on schedule and on budget, and left the house clean, tidy and in good order… I can’t speak highly enough of their reliability, efficiency and the high quality of their work. I’d hire them again in a heartbeat!
We hired Lauren and Jeremy to help us with our remodel back in 2013 to turn our 1930’s Spanish style house into something that would work for a family of four… The end result is amazing… We have gotten nothing but good comments about our home and I am as pleased with the outcome as I am with the service that Letter Four provided to us.
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Jeremy and his team at Letter Four. They clearly understood the complex objectives we had for our website, and the solutions they came up with were designed and executed brilliantly. They are innovative, collaborative and communicative. We couldn’t be happier.
LETTER FOUR is reliable, thorough, skilled, fair, and does what he says he is going to do. We never had any issues with him, his work, his staff, or the quality of the work he did. I highly recommend Jeremy and Lauren.
The summary of this long overdue review is that we would highly recommend Letter Four for all aspects of the design/build process. We hired Letter Four to do a complete re-build of our house (taking it from a 1300sf single story house to a 3,000sf two story house and completely redesigning the entire facade). This was a major project, particularly for a couple with very little experience in construction or renovations. Admittedly, as is the case with all construction projects, there were some unanticipated delays throughout the process. But, the large majority of these were at no fault of Letter Four's and, if ever they did make a mistake, they did everything in their power to rectify the problem as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Great company! Excellent work. They have a very thorough process of onboarding a client. First with a meeting at the property site and then a second in their offices to meet the staff and walk through their process. Something to note is that they are licensed in both architecture and construction, giving us the option to have our project run completely by them. The staff is such a pleasure to work with and I appreciate the honesty they give when going through budget issues (which are not always the most fun conversations) Overall, extremely pleased with their service and will always recommend them to my family and friends.
Jeremy and Lauren led the renovation of our home in Santa Monica Canyon. The original house was a tribute to 1991 Miami Vice, a big modern white thing with polished black granite floors and shag carpet. Every single room needed to be fixed. They opened up the rooms to let light into every corner, worked with us to make it both kid-friendly and beautiful and were comfortable integrating some of our preferences for specific ceramic tiles, art and metalwork with their design vision. Along the way we discovered ways that the original builder had cut costs and/or parts of the house were simply giving out (old thin plumbing, a structural issue supporting the staircase, etc). These things will happen in any major renovation and it is important how your contractor handles them when they do. Jeremy was great in communicating exactly what the issue was and how we could solve it in a way that was best for our budget and timeline. Wonderful.
We hired Letter Four to do a pretty substantial remodel of our mid-century modern home, which had not been updated since the 1950s. This involved a complete redo of the kitchen and bathrooms, as well as some structural changes. As new homeowners with no experience in renovation or design, we were very nervous about such a huge undertaking! However, we were immediately put at ease when we started working with Letter Four. They were very thorough and allowed us to be as hands-on or removed as we wanted to be. They handled all the permitting, vendors, subcontracts, and ordering and worked through numerous obstacles on our behalf! Lauren's eye for design is spot-on and we basically went with almost all of her choices, without a second thought! Overall a great experience and we would definitely work with them ag
We hired Letter Four to do a ton of work over the whole of our house while we were out of town for a few weeks (painting all walls and woodwork, complete kitchen face lift, new floors to name a few things). They got the job done immaculately, on schedule and on budget, and left the house clean, tidy and in good order for our return. I can't speak highly enough of their reliability, efficiency and the high quality of their work. I'd hire them again in a heart beat!
