We own a mid-century 3000 square foot house where we've lived since 1996. We've used Patricia Brennan Architects for three major and two smaller remodeling projects since 1996. Patricia has remodeled our main floor, including our kitchen and two bathrooms; our lower daylight level, including a large lounge area, a full bath, and a laundry room. She also designed our outdoor spaces, adding a porch, two patios, a stone path, and three levels of outdoor steps. Every project has added to our sense of well-being.

Perhaps the most telling demonstration of our respect and appreciation for Patricia’s work is the fact we've used her on consecutive remodels. It never occurred to us to consult with another architect. She is meticulously detailed in designing the spaces and finishes so that the effect is timeless -clean, open, light-filled. She solicits and takes into account her clients’ opinions, so our house looks different from her other projects. Working with her is a collaborative experience - and a learning one! We've been particularly impressed with the way she layers her lighting designs with different lighting sources - very important in our east-facing house, especially in the Northwest winter. What's more, when we thought we had to add another story, she persuaded us to use our existing space more efficiently - and we're glad we did!

Most crucially, we continue to consult with Patricia after the design-and-drawing phase, and she acts as our advocate as we work with contractors, structural engineers, and landscape contractors. We've learned through experience that her involvement is essential in keeping a project on budget and true to the architectural drawings.

Our last project was completed in August 2015, a remodel of a master bath. Though we didn't expand the footprint, Patricia’s design significantly opened up the sense of space. Though a relatively small project, there were a number of contractor-related bumps, but Patricia provided counsel, solutions, and intervention (!) to get us to a happy conclusion. Five stars!
