Project Portfolio

See a few of the residential and commercial projects we've done.

Reibe house

Ottavio's Studio helped to renovate and remodel this 100 year old residence. All with the goal to make a smaller space feel larger. Highlights of this project were:

  • Demoed and remodeled existing kitchen, bathroom and sunroom
  • Reconfigured walls and openings to create a comfortable flow and open feeling of “galley” style kitchen/family room 
  • Made and installed custom kitchen cabinets, banquet and bar
  • The kitchen and family room were featured in the Jennifer Lopez’s  movie “The Hustler”

Ottavio's Design Studio takes no short cuts.  They know how to make anything you need, and they make it with quality that exceeds anything you can find in a store.  

They work with only the best quality materials, plumbers, electricians, framers, and crew. It is obvious that there is a sense of team with everyone that works at your house and he leads the team like no one else could do.  With an old house, we ran into normal “surprises” in a renovation.  John handled it with a level head and innovative ideas, and actually made the results better than we could have imagined. I credit Ottavio's  Studio with making our house a home. We now cook more, hang out together more, and are making more memories together.

John and his team were absolute pros. They came into the project with multiple contractors and immediately brought order to chaos. Most importantly they restored the beauty and charm of this old space. Allowing our patrons to not only enjoy great food, but also amazing ambiance.

  • Designed and built an exterior garage door to allow for flow of interior and exterior seating
