Patricia Brennan Architects applied outstanding skill and experience in achieving all design goals for our new home construction. The project involved teardown of an older structure in a dense city lot and building a new 3,645 sqft home with an accessory dwelling unit.

Challenges included the difficulty of international communication during the initial design stage when my wife and I lived in Asia; interpreting and managing arcane city code requirements applying to tight infill development; integrating a modern structure within a predominantly traditional neighborhood style; and achieving a gold-level green certification through the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)
“LEED for Home” program.

Patricia Brennan Architects overcame each of these challenges, and more, exceptionally well. Moreover, she mobilized an outstanding team of technical consultants, suppliers, a landscape designer and construction contractor who individually and collectively represented the best talent and experience available. The professionalism, experience, and camaraderie of this team were key factors in the success of our project.

Patricia Brennan demonstrated creative and flexible responses to budget and code constraints. Her masterful sense for colors, materials, textures, and finishes guided us with confidence through innumerable details and decision-making as construction proceeded. The result is a superb home that exceeds all our goals and expectations – creating lasting value and aesthetic beauty. Achievement of the LEED for Home gold level certification demonstrates that stringent environmental goals can be met without sacrificing style, budgets or livability.
