Design over the past thirteen years and have always enjoyed Darryl’s expertise in listening and providing design solutions to the client’s desires in building their dream home. Darryl’s creativity is shown in his artistic renderings which help clients visualize their conceptual plans. As a true testament, when my wife and I decided to build our new home we worked with Darryl for our unique custom design."

One of the features of this magazine was a guide to Citirama. Citirama was a single-site showcase of homes planned for Gaslight Square, an area of St. Louis' Central West End. Our design for the showcase was the Victoria, for Rolwes Homes. This magazine offers incite to the development of the project.

At projects' end there was an event to showcase the finished homes. At the end of the tour, participants were asked to vote for their favorite home design and the Victoria was the most popular, however due to going slightly over budget, our design had been disqualified.
