We believe construction follows composition. The uses and experiences of spaces, layered with the critical and efficient design of those spaces, is what allows us to exceed expectations and bring a sense of life into all of our projects. This passion is rooted in our construction team as well— often working with acclaimed Interior Designers and Architects, Intension Design’s understanding of the architectural process allows our onsite team to ‘speak the same language’ as the designers. This creates a cohesive, communicative and energetic work environment that produces the best outcome for everyone involved.

INTENSION design’s intense dedication to high-end construction and ethical business practices allows us to deliver the finest in customer service, sub-contractor relations and overall project delivery. We have developed an open book policy allowing our clients to see every step of the process. Our sophisticated invoicing system and accounting team ensures maximum equity management while the on-site team delivers results on schedule. We consider ourselves personally invested in each project.

I love what I do. This is not a task I take lightly. I am always humbled and deeply honored when a client puts their trust in us and commissions us to build the house of their dreams.

We believe that Design + Build allows for the most economical approach to any construction project. With a full design studio, in house, we can expedite design solutions in real time and work directly with our construction team, and the client, to produce timely and elegant Value Engineering solutions. In a budget conscious economy, being able to quickly resolve issues that impact both your finished product, and your bottom line, is vital.

We understand that the construction process is complex so we take a proactive role throughout every stage of the project to ensure clarity and transparency.
A key ingredient to our continued success is that we only work with Los Angeles’ top sub-contractors, and have partnerships with some of the biggest and best vendors in the world. Intension Design bids every aspect of the project and works to explain exactly ‘what is what.’ Ultimately the security, comfort and trust of our clients and partners is our priority.
