Located in the heart of the Bay Area, AP+I Design is a medium sized architectural, planning, and interior design firm. Founded in 1993 by Carol Sandman, the business is certified as a woman-owned business enterprise and is known in the local design community for exceptional work and design creativity.

Unique to the AP+I Design project is the new conversational room made with our Sutter Home White Oak. A first for our Wine Barrel Wood, the design incorporates the inside of the wine stave, which is rich with purple wine stains and crystal sediments. The staves form part of a curved wall – resulting in the appearance a large wine barrel. Behind one side of the curved wall is a pantry storage room hidden behind a secret Reclaimed Oak door. This truly masterful design, built with exceptional craftsmanship, makes for a one-of-a-kind space.

Additional Millwork:
  • Breakroom island
  • Storage hidden door
  • Reading nook
