In 10 Principles of Good Design, famed German industrial designer Dieter Rams famously called for "less but better" products. This year, architects and interior designers adopte a similar philosophy to create spaces that are elegant in spite of their economy.
In many ways, it's an economic imperative: Rising housing costs have forced designers and architects across the nation—and in many nations abroad—to squeeze more utility out of smaller footprints. Take Tree Hugger founder Graham Hill's 350-square-foot New York apartment, which shape-shifts to accommodate as many as 10 dinner guests. Global warming concerns have also compelled designers to minimize the environmental impact of their work, as we saw with the House of Rolf, a home built from the remains of a demolished office building.

"Condo Buyer - March 2018
I first met Violet at an open house in my neighborhood. I found her to be friendly, knowledgeable and easy to talk with. When we began looking for a property to purchase I thought immediately of Violet. She made the entire process painless. She was available, returned phone calls and texts promptly and kept us informed at every turn. We would definitely use her again and can highly recommend her for any real estate needs.
