 This week we are taking it to the beach for a conversation with architect, Joseph Spierer. I met Joe in Manhattan Beach and we speak about the housing explosion taking place, not just in Los Angeles, but the South Bay in particular. The dirt is getting as pricey here as in San Francisco. When that happens, the building and design process seems to get even more purposeful. Homeowners are challenging designers and architects to get even more creative regarding use of space and putting even more into the project. This episode is the first in what will be the Small Space, Big Style series. We are actively pursuing designers and architects that are re-imagining use of space and doing more with that space. When home buyers are evaluating a property, one evaluation tool is cost-per-square-foot. I am flipping that script a little and applying a different term, impact-per-square-foot. How much design can one inject into a project? Joe specializes in South Bay homes and shares his expertise. Convo By Design, in our fifth season and has been presented by Snyder Diamond since episode number one. Snyder Diamond, always first with what’s next in the kitchen and bath. And as we talk about small spaces with big style, nobody provides the products and service for finding the right appliances like Snyder Diamond. They are widely shopped and trusted by those in the business and homeowners alike because they have superior products and unmatched service. That is due to the people who work there and It starts with second generation president, Russ Diamond. Russ travels extensively looking for the brands that provide the latest in technology and design for the kitchen and bath. In the kitchen, smarter appliances mean you can create amazing dishes from food that is stored at the correct temperature and humidity levels then prepared on a remarkable line of smart ranges and ovens. Stunning good looks, incredibly smart and designed to accommodate a multitude of specifications.
