"Drake+Khan designed and managed the renovation of several outdated bathrooms in our home. My wife and I were extremely impressed with the design presentation and concepts provided. Drake + Khan was very hands-on and knowledgeable throughout the renovation, resulting in a fast and easy construction process we couldn't be happier with. We wouldn't undertake another project without them."
"We hired Stephanie and Asal from Drake and Khan Design To completely redesign our Italian Restaurant and give it a modern fresh look From the design process, to always having one or both ladies overseeing the construction, coordinating and dealing with contractors, attention to every detail ,working overnight to minimize time, that we had to close down ,enduring calls with last minute changes ,to getting down and dirty to get things accomplished the way they envisioned it ,they handled everything promptly and with patience and professionalism once our job was completed we were so happy we started to discuss future work ,that we eventually hired Stephanie and Asal to do once again, after using these lovely ladies on two projects I highly recommended their company you will not be disappointed."
"We have used Drake+Khan for both a home and office renovation. The Drake+Khan team is very confidant which was important for a couple that agonizes over shades of white. We were very happy with the design process where options were presented in a way that allowed us to visualize the concept within our home. The home renovation was particularly stressful as we had a fixed window for the project to be completed while we were away. Drake+Khan’s proactive communication throughout the renovations was a breath of fresh air in an industry known for poor project management. When we opened the door there were some lovely, unexpected personal touches, which made our home that much more welcoming upon our return."
"Where passion makes the impossible happen. A team that is creative, organized and have a flair for artistry, this dynamic duo will take the drab and turn everything they touch into a dream come true, all within budget and on time. A well organized team and extremely creative. Whether you are starting from nothing or a complete renovation, regardless of residential or commercial, they are an absolute delight and a pleasure to work with. I have worked with this team on several projects for the last few years and have never been happier."
"Passion and talent are the perfect ingredients to creative success. Drake+Khan Design has all in abundance. Would hire them again any day and refer them to anyone without a doubt."
