Chambers Music Studio- Bexley, OH
Before we start designing your space we develop a program to understand your needs and how you want to live, work, and entertain in your space and look at the design with a sustainability lens. Then, we conceptualize, and actualize the design through the process of sketching, concepting, and 3D drawings. Once the program and layout is set we get to the exciting phase of pulling together all of the materials - finishes, lighting, plumbing, hardware and furniture, all of the special items that become the finished space.
Prior to starting VALERIE HALAS design, Valerie began her career working at small boutique architecture studios, designing for fashion and lifestyle brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan and high-end residential projects in NYC.
Later, Valerie was commissioned to design residential projects in Westlake, OH and Big Run, PA. and was asked by the Africa Schoolhouse Foundation to oversee the construction of a primary school complex that she collaborated on designing for the Not for Profit.
Valerie then gained a masters degree where her research focused on studying the social anthropology of the built environment.
Valerie next merged her skills in research and design by leading user experience focused design strategy projects in Chicago.
Currently she is using her research and design skills on residential kitchen and bathroom renovations and additions and light commercial renovations in Bexley, OH where she resides with her husband and two children.
