Michael believes that every house tells a story.
And the story is shaped by history, by place, and by the individuals who live within it. His passion for adapting traditional architectural forms with the principles for contemporary living has earned him the trust of families across New Jersey, Connecticut, New York, and Palm Beach. Families who often return to Stonewater for a second home, a vacation home, or for updates to reflect changing needs when a new chapter is being written.
When Michael talks about his favorite clients, he says they are clients with incredibly high standards, but also clients that he can have a conversation with - have a quick lunch or a glass of wine and figure out the possibilities. The clients who then trust Michael and his Design Team to take the conversations, get to work, and make it all happen
