     Carmelo brings more than twelve years of construction experience to CW Design Works, beginning his journey after graduating with National Honors from Carolina High School and Academy in Greenville, where he learned that, “Nothing worth doing is ever easy.”

     Carmelo takes pride in studying his craft each day, leading crews and ensuring that every detail of the project is completed to the client’s satisfaction.

     Originally from the small town of Las Pilas, Mexico, Carmelo credits his family, church, and friends with helping him get where he is today.

Hadley Taylor-Downard, Residential Designer

Residential Designer

Hadley Taylor-Downard

     From a young age, Hadley has been drawn to all kinds of art and design, with pages of sketches and studies turning into a fascination with spatial experience. This curiosity propelled her toward an undergraduate degree in architectural studies and drafting. 

     Currently in her third year of Clemson University’s Master of Architecture program, Hadley thrives while developing an enthusiasm for exploring the intersection of feel, beauty, and function in architecture.

    When she is not absorbed in a design podcast, you’ll often find her unwinding with a sketchbook, discovering a small-town coffee shop with her husband, or giving life to a new piece of furniture.
