SquallCo was retained as the design + build consultant for new beach home for a family of six in Surf City, NJ. While the architecture was completed prior to our involvement in the project, we guided the selection and fulfillment of all finish materials, from light fixtures to paint colors and cabinets, managed construction, and were the interface with the client for any number of questions and issues that arise during a project.
In 2013, SquallCo oversaw the acquisition, design, and gut-renovation of a row home in the developing area of Point Breeze, Philadelphia. Our clients were seeking an investment property to renovate and rent in an upcoming area, and hired us to manage the entire process, from A-Z.
We located the property, provided financial and market due diligence and projections, took the property through the design and permitting phase, and managed all aspects of construction and design. Upon completion, the property appraised for significantly more than most local comps and ultimately rented quickly for far-above average rental rates in the neighborhood.
We were given nearly full autonomy to treat the project as our own. This is an example of our ability to successfully guide the development process for our client.
In the fall of 2013, SquallCo was retained by a restaurant owner to help manage the design and construction of his latest restaurant, Kensington Quarters, in Fishtown, Phialdelphia. Taking farm-to-table to the next level, the restaurant, which opened in the fall of 2014, offers a unique concept in that it will be both a butchery and a restaurant, have demonstration space for cooking classes, and feature locally and organically raised meat in inspiring ways.
The space, and old warehouse, was largely kept intact. We wanted to remain respectful to the building and its history while adding unique, modern, warm finishes.
The home is a SquallCo development project. We purchased an old Victorian home in need of a complete gut-rehab. We aimed to keep the historic integrity of the home, but add a unique and somewhat modern feel to the home.
The result, is a colorful, light-filled home with great views, awesome outdoor space, and great livability.
SquallCo acquired and gut-renovated an old garage in south Philadelphia into a modern and open light-filled loft-house with a green roof. The home, designed to be open and loft-like, ultimately sold to an artist. The green roof and cedar rainscreen on the ipe deck really stole the show, providing an outdoor oasis in the city.
We love good light, warm but modern finishes, and unique choices and colors that add life and livability to our spaces.
When working with clients, we work hard to achieve the look and feel that most inspires them; and from the traditional to modern, we excel at creating unique and comfortable space.
The images shown are indicative of the type of work and style that defines SquallCo homes.
