Have you seen our latest press release?!

Strobel Design Build’s design for  a guest house in the downtown St. Petersburg area was published on the cover of St. Pete Magazine this past month! Here what one of the team members has to say about the project:

“This design was very tricky.” [Says Strobel Design Build’s allied ASID designer Meryl Halsey.] “The objective was to fit two full size beds for guests, storage for their luggage or other miscellaneous items, a kitchenette, a living room, and a bathroom with a stand-up shower into the very small 10′ by 15′ space! We reached our goal by designing a “trundle” type bed that pulls out from underneath the raised kitchen floor. This also allowed for a eat-at bar area for the guests and an interesting approach to keeping the areas of the small space separate, yet conjoined. The second “bedroom” was elevated over the bathroom area, accessed by a ladder. We added ice block glass to provide more natural light into the small space, while keeping the privacy they desired. This was a very fun project and I think it came together quite nicely. Upon existing the beautiful “Casita” one follows a beautifully designed spiral staircase to the rooftop “party” deck! The real cherry on top of this design! With added space on the rooftop of the new-build, the client wanted to add an area to overlook Vinoy Park and the Bay. They wanted a space to entertain guests, so we finished the deck in a resilient Azek decking surface, it will hold up for many many years and will not fade in the sun. All-together this job was a complete success!”

“The Working Triangle”

Did you know there is a formula designers use to begin work on any kitchen design?

It’s quite simple actually: the key is to place the 3 most common appliances first, then work around them with cabinets and other items you may want in the room.
These 3 items are: Sink, Refrigerator and Cook top.The formula: “The working triangle.”

A smooth work flow should be your primary concern. This formula will help to achieve this goal.
