The Restore 818 team provides an integrated 360-degree approach to real estate development, whether renovating and flipping properties for immediate resale, or building out and repositioning rental properties for maximum cash flow and internal rate of return.
We operate with a unique 360-degree system by which we are able to uniquely fuse interior and exterior spaces for seamless living and entertaining. We bring all the benefits of Architectural, LEED AP (LEED Accredited Professional) Interior Design, and Landscape Design services to our real estate investment projects.
This translates to the bottom line of both short-term property investments and long-term rental or development investments by creating high aesthetic appeal with truly affordable budgets. We call it affordable luxury.
Affordable luxury has a purpose — that is higher investment returns. Our expertise in overcoming the inherent challenges of restoring pre-1940 homes combined with our heritage of craftsman, California Bungalow and Mid-Century Modern architecture allows us to tackle a wide range of building types. With these skills the Restore 818 team can confidently step onto a property and reinvent it as a highly attractive piece of real estate from the inside-out. Our expertise gives us the ability to positively impact a commercial or residential property’s market value for buyers, sellers and investors.
The projects we design embody twenty-first century function together with classic building form. We are innovative and collaborative problem solvers. The consultants we partner with are the best in their respective fields and share our values of fresh thinking, responsive service and attention to detail.
From the initial review of any investment project, we work to understand the challenges we can face in bringing the property to its’ highest and best use. Whether it’s building from the ground-up or adapting an older structure for new uses, our solutions incorporate today’s technology and contribute to a sustainable future.
No matter whether it is a home, an apartment or an office, the space must suit a lifestyle. When this theory is applied properly it maximizes returns on real estate investments.
REDUCED RISK — With typical renovations, restorations or development there are multiple parties involved with no one except you as the investor or client to bear responsibility for all the moving parts. The Design-Build approach provides a central point of authority and responsibility, thereby reducing risk and increasing project controls.
COST CONTROLS — The Restore 818 team manages projects of all scope from conceptual design through construction as a single primary control point. We are uniquely able to analyze and guide the cost of construction during early design phases.
SPEED & EFFICIENCY — We have proven that this strategic approach provides a smooth transition between design and construction, more attention to detail during construction, and a more effective line of communication for the entire team. When working with other Architects as part of a team, we are able to quickly grasp the design intent and offer architectural detailing support if requested. We hold weekly or bi-weekly meetings from initial design to completion of construction to update the project schedule, review upcoming details, qualify change orders, and discuss any questions the team may have.
Restore 818 is experienced in all phases of residential design and construction. We offer early design study, site planning, elevation drawings, construction plans, and permitting. Full Design-Build services include cost analysis, feasibility studies, schedule development, contracting and construction management.
Our relationships with our subcontractors are long standing and competitive and we require each to supply proof of current insurance coverage. Our job sites are clean and orderly and meet all OSHA safety requirements, including regular safety meetings and inspections.
