your house designed for your life

We have a bold belief here: that the home design process should be as enjoyable as the end result. That the steps to go from blue-sky ideas to final blueprint ought to be easy and exciting. At LaBella Residential Studio, we’re listeners and collaborators and big dreamers. It’s how we’re able to design homes our clients love to live in.

We start by listening

Tell us how you live. Where do you put your Christmas tree? Who sleeps in? Do you love to entertain? These are details we’ll use to develop plans for your house—so that it works with the way you live.

imagination is everywhere

Travel, a family homestead, a dream house half a world away—design inspiration can come from anywhere. Share with us what excites you—we’ll share, too—and use that insight to create your home.

you talk, we sketch

Designing starts on the spot, with sketches that begin to capture what your home could look like. How does this feel? That? We’ll concept together so that, by the end of our first meeting, we’ll have a plan in place and a vision in mind.

any style of home

We’re not limited by one design style. Our portfolio ranges from Mediterranean-inspired beach houses to New England lodges, spanning architectural regions, eras, and styles.

always in touch

Because our residential studio is part of LaBella’s larger architectural and engineering firm, we have access to the latest communication and design technology, from 3D computer modeling to virtual reality, to share plans with you at every stage. That means easier decision making, fewer surprises, and total collaboration.

"As first-time home builders, we did not know exactly what we wanted when we walked through the doors at LaBella. We simply had a concept and style in mind, but it was a style not commonly found in the Lake Norman area. David listened intently and truly embraced who we were and how we wanted to live life in our home. He was patient with us, made incredible design recommendations, and happily went back to the drawing board as we made revisions. He even connected us with a builder who was perfect for our project. We are now in the home of our dreams!"
