10 Years Later: Synergy’s Favorite Projects

By August 21, 2018December 1st, 2022No Comments

At Synergy Design & Construction, we love what we do. Mostly because of the talented professionals we are lucky to have on our team.

Each member of our staff brings a unique and valuable set of skills, as well as individual tastes and preferences. With experts in carpentry, design, project management, and more, taking on a new project gives each of us something to get excited about.

Read below to learn more about which home improvement projects in Northern Virginia we loved the most over the past 10 years.

Emily has a thing for cabinets 

by Emily Bickl, Interior Designer UDCP

This kitchen spoke to me because a lot of its aspects were closest to what I would have in my dream home! I like the “updated colonial” look, as it’s something-new-that-looks-old. Also, we were able to fill one whole wall with floor to ceiling cabinetry and it’s still huge! I just have a thing for cabinets. I know, I don’t get it either :p

Liz loves getting people back in their home

by Liz Pharis Hawkins, Office & Client Relations Manager

After working so closely with this client and then to see their home destroyed by fire was devastating. To be just a small part of recreating  their home (and lives) after the fire was very meaningful and it’s my favorite project for that reason.

Matt recognizes the emotional impact

by Matt Offerman, Lead Carpenter, CRPM

We’re in and out of many client homes, but I still remember how touched this couple was by the transformation of their home.

Tom always favors good design

by Tom Reineberg, Licensed Architect

I’m always excited when the clients are overjoyed by the results of their renovation – even if they tear up at our Completion Celebration. My favorite has to be one project where the design was terrific – especially the screen porch / master deck addition.

Lisa looks for design risks, gorgeous elements and fun 

by Lisa Lockerby, Project Manager

It’s hard to chose a favorite, but I liked that this project touched so many different areas of their home. The clients were willing to take risks in color (dark blue kitchen cabinets) and style (penny floor tile in powder room). The re-designed layouts made both the kitchen and master bath feel so much larger and open with increased functionality for their family. The clients were fun, friendly and enjoyed the whole process.

Nicola’s favorite project was hers – of course!

by Nicola Caul Shelley, Program Manager

It was quite the journey given I was pregnant with twins at the time, but it was beautifully finished on-time, on-budget ready for their arrival!  I wanted a design aesthetic that was European and contemporary, but paid homage to the mid-century modern origins of our home. Synergy delivered exactly that with slab cabinets (including horizontal top-opening cabinets), a large white silestone granite island, a wine fridge (a must-have!) and a kitchen packed with design details and style. Beyond that, the free-standing fireplace was updated with matching large-format Mirage tiles. The first floor was completely transformed and we loved it!
