The South Haven Area Chamber of Commerce was pleased to welcome new member Design Evolutions, Inc. with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, June 27th.
Design Evolutions, Inc. is an architectural design firm owned and operated by Marla Bruemmer. Bruemmer is a residential designer with a strong construction background, who has been designing new homes and remodels since the mid 1980s. She opened her own design firm, Design Evolutions, in 1998, and relocated to South Haven in 2006, where she took on a large project in renovating her own home.
Bruemmer has extensive experience, with thousands of designs under her belt. She specializes in lake properties, difficult lots, and homes where the function has to be on par with the form. “Good architecture is about the person living in it,” Bruemmer says, “the floorplan is not just about how it looks, but how you live in the space. It’s important to tailor the design to the person who will live there by listening to what they want and need.”
Design Evolutions contracts directly with customers and sometimes with builders to create functional and beautiful homes. Bruemmer has recently designed the majority of the homes in the Harbor Shores development in St. Joseph, as well as new construction and remodels throughout southwest Michigan and beyond, averaging about 40-50 projects annually.
