How Are Your Needs Changing?
Our clients typically call us because their home isn’t serving their needs and they are ready for a change. As architects and interior designers, we live for this challenge! We’ll work together with you to create a living environment that reflects where you are in your life’s journey and provides flexibility for the future.

Understand Your Budget
To help you have a more realistic picture of what your budget should be, we recommend that you look at Remodeling Magazine's Cost Vs. Value Report, which takes 35 of the most popular remodeling projects, gives you their average cost in the Detroit Metro region, and also lists what you can expect for a return on your investment.
This gives you an architect's or interior designer's expertise at a reasonable price, and can be a standalone service or can lead to more work with Studio Z.
Documentation of Existing Conditions
Before any design can begin, Studio Z will measure your home, takes lots of photos, and enter the existing plans and elevations into our computer software.
Construction Observation and Administration
- Bidding and contract negotiation (as needed)
- 3D renderings
- Interior design services
- Purchase of finish materials and fixtures
Frequently Asked Questions
Our in-home initial consultation typically takes about 2 hours, and we prepare for this meeting by researching your property’s zoning and looking into any other issues that may arise during the process. If you decide to hire us, we will credit the initial consultation fee towards our total fee for services. If you do not decide to hire us, we feel that the information we provide during the initial consultation about the design and construction process, the costs, the feasibility, zoning issues, and any concerns we have about your specific project will be of value to you, no matter how you decide to proceed.
If you’d prefer a short consultation in our office, we offer that option for a lower fee.
While we are doing our work, you’ll need to make literally thousands of decisions, ranging from which of our design options you feel will work best for your family to what tile you’d like for your shower walls. We try to make these decisions clear and easy for our clients, but our schedule will depend on this flow of information.
