Built X Design

The name BUILT x DESIGN or ‘Built by Design’ came from the harsh reality that too many homes are constructed without enough thought given to their design. Even in the field of design build, many firms are led by the ‘build’ and not the ‘design’. BUILT x DESIGN is a design led design build practice, it might seem subtle but when each and every portion of a project is BUILT with the full DESIGN intent, the results are truly custom, entirely unique, and show the careful thought process behind every detail.

CYK Design

CKY design started with one idea: make beautiful spaces on time and on budget. A simple idea, yes, but the beauty (and the difficulty) is in the details. And we’re obsessed with the details. Really, we can’t think of anything else we’d rather be doing. CKY is a modern design studio that sees in modernism the perfect balance of functionality, minimalism, and warmth. We work with pattern, color, texture, and scale to create products and environments with unforgettable style and unquestionable quality.

Megan Hudacky, the founder of cky design, has more than 15 years experience in the design industry, including work with top architecture and design firms. When we mentioned that we’re obsessed with the details we were talking about her. And it shows in the timeless spaces and gorgeous products she makes, including custom lighting and furniture. Her work has been featured in fancy design publications like Sunset Magazine, Dwell, 5280, Residential Architect, and Inc Magazine. She has also been part of award-winning team projects recognized with the AIA “Architects Choice Awards” and “Built Interiors” AIA Merit Award. She’s bona fide.
