Specialists in 19th Century Design & Restoration


   The northern building in the David Michael Architectural LLC Complex will contain the design & sales offices of David Michael, who has been a scientific design architect / engineer for over 40 years.  We will help design anything using our building supplies and elements, from a single piece of furniture to a complete Mansion.  The Andover Complex renovation is entirely designed, renovated and decorated by David Michael.

    An additional function of the design team will be to make molds of some of  the rarest treasures of the David Michael Collection, and to produce high quality reproductions, made  from the finest period-correct materials.

    As with the other two buildings, there is a large showroom entry, with several antique displays.  At the north end there is a fabulous mid 19th century black walnut and burled staircase salvaged from a Cleveland Mansion leading to the top floor Design & Operations offices.

    To the west there is a spectacular recreation of the front facade of an Italianate Mansion.  You enter through the "front door" of the Mansion to find more rooms of Fine Period Furniture and further displays of the David Michael Collection.

    Another prize holding of David Michael Architectural LLC is a heavily wooded and landscaped building lot in prestigious Westlake, Ohio, that comes  complete with the design and all of the necessary historical architectural building supplies & hardware needed to build a two-story Victorian Mansion (with a 3 car garage)! A scale model of the Mansion is also included.
     The  Mansion is a  mid-19th  Century inspired stone & brick English Manor House.  The design features 12' ceilings and crown moldings, 8' antique doors with antique compression bronze hardware and moldings.  Also included are 5 antique elaborate  Italian Marble Fireplace  Mantels,  hardwood and marble floors, antique black walnut staircases, hardwood cabinets and built-in custom millwork.  Further construction includes vintage bathrooms, period lighting, and leaded, stained, and beveled glass windows.  Rare Quartzite Stone / Brick exterior and slate roofing complete the construction.  State of Art heating, air conditioning and  appliances can be added to the traditional Victorian Elements.

      A companion structure, the Carriage House can be added for additional rooms, and vehicle storage.  The design would be complimentary to the Manor House, and connected to it by a stone arched breezeway.  An interior design option would include Museum Quality 19th Century frames, paintings, oriental rugs, and black walnut period furniture, and still more items salvaged from the famous "Millionaires' Row", on Euclid Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio.

    The project can be completed with elegant period inspired gardens and courtyards, and finally, surrounded by mid-19th century iron gates and fencing, to enclose the 1 acre property along the newly renovated prestigious divided Hilliard Boulevard in Westlake, Ohio.

    This amazing package will be available for sale late in 2010.

     In an interesting note to David's modern design, engineering and fabrication abilities and love of antiques, one of his designs that he designed, engineered and had produced was a high tech room size stainless steel varnishing booth currently being used in the Smithsonian
Institution in their Patent Office Building, Washington, D.C. to help preserve some of the nation's important antiques.
