For this massive Multi-Family project located in Sandy, Utah, Belle Kurudzija took her design inspiration from the project’s sweeping views of the Wasatch Mountains. Belle and her Associate, Emily Hatfield, were closely involved in the project from concept through completion. Working thoughtfully with the builder’s budgets they selected interior materials and finishes with an upscale look on a relatively frugal budget. Anyone can throw money at a project. It takes a designer with skill, experience and a deft approach to negotiating to achieve great design on a budget. This was handled so well at The Ridge that the final prestigious design feels seamless and effortless. A breathtaking Club Room, Leasing Office and Lobby area immediately give someone entering a feeling of class, elegance and high-end living. With the Multi-Family housing arena exploding across the Wasatch Front, it’s vital that communities establish a brand and identity. Belle was closely involved with the branding for The Ridge project, including the design of their signature logo, interior and exterior signage and even the placing of exterior lighting on the patio deck areas. It’s impossible to walk through the entire project without seeing a detail, a material choice, furnishings, lighting and flooring, and a hundred other design elements that were not selected with great care and research by Belle and her team. One of her most successful projects to date, The Ridge quickly established the raising of a bar by Belle, creating a new standard of excellence in Multi-Family properties without equal. From the exterior materials and color selections, to the sweeping patio and deck areas, and the beautifully executed model residences and public spaces, this project truly has it all – and the talented team at Lisman Studio was privileged to be a part of it.
