Who we are and what we do…
Caryl K. Hoffman
Owner, Interior Designer General Contractor
Caryl brings enthusiasm, expertise and a deep knowledge of construction to her work. Her superpower is working with people, including our clients, associates, vendors and subcontractors. Her goal is to make sure that all of her projects come out beautifully, on time and on budget, and that the experience for all parties involved has been positive.
She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Design from UCLA, and studied Art and Art History at Studio Art Centers International (SACI) in Florence Italy.
After graduating from college, Caryl worked for both residential and commercial interior design firms in L.A. including – ISD (Interior Space Design) and Douglas Barnard Inc. , both nationally recognized firms. Clients included, John Davis, President of 20th Century Fox, Actor, Sylvester Stallone, Entrepreneur, Ted Turner, and Bob Fitzpatrick, President of Disney Paris. It was wonderful experience and a heady time for a young designer, helping her refine her design skills, and learning the intricacies of running complex construction projects.
After marrying, Caryl and her husband, moved from Los Angeles to Portland in search of a more affordable, more livable lifestyle. In Portland, Caryl started her own business, and has been privileged to be able to design, build and remodel for over 30 years now.
