A seamless collaboration of Architectural Design, Interior Design, and Construction Services.

We design, build and renovate fine homes for busy people with discerning tastes.   They seek a home of artful composition and refinement, while being warm and comfortable to really live in; and they want to be gracefully led through a simplified, highly organized process that achieves a truly outstanding result.

In 2009, long term collaborators - De Novo Architects and Charles Cudd Co. - joined forces to form the power house Architectural Design Build firm of today.  For decades, the principals of Charles Cudd  De Novo LLC have been responsible for the creation of some of the Twin Cities’ most distinctive and sought after homes.

Our work is our passion and the dignity of our homes, and the vast number of enthusiastic client testimonials, show it.  Every one of us, including our field personnel, is deeply committed to the highest standards of principled architecture, craftsmanship and customer service.  We want to exceed our customers’ expectations, not just meet them, and to achieve an outstanding result that we can be fiercely proud of. Because of the uniquely qualified team and our highly enjoyable seamless process, we are able to do both.

Whether it’s a new, stunning kitchen, a whole home renovation or addition, or designing and building an entirely new home, Charles Cudd De Novo LLC sets the standard of excellence.
