Featured Reviews for City of Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers

Purple Cherry Architects
City of Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers
Jun 29, 2013
“I would highly reccomend Cathy Cherry. I had the pleasure of working with her on a house that she designed for Baldwin Homes for the Maryland Green Show Home. The area that I designed and furnished was the Kitchen, Eat-in Area and Great Room. I love how she designed the areas to be an open floor plan. I find that homeowners in this area of Maryland like open floor plans because it is a more interactive but, casual way of life. When I heard that Cathy was designing the home and wanted it to be a "tidal" home I knew that her style would fit hand in glove with my "Chesapeake Cozy" style. The architectural detail on the home was top notch. In my area, I particularly loved the strong columns. I repeated the detail in my custom built-ins flanking the fireplace. It was easy to plan the interior design around Cathy's classic taste! Gina Fitzsimmons, ASID”

Moore Architects, PC

“Moore Architects brilliantly designed and oversaw the completion of our new home in Arlington, VA. Charlie Moore had a profound vision for replacing a 1935 Cape Cod with a larger home that was stylish and functional, and which completely fit the environment of the neighborhood. Greg Thomas, the hard-working, insightful, polite, and kind associate architect whom we worked most closely with, was attentive to every detail and eager to make changes in the plans as we discovered new choices that better fit our needs. Over a 21 month period (from September 2013 to June 2015), Moore Architects designed and redesigned and perfected plans, helped us win approval from the Arlington County government, and worked collaboratively with the talented contractor Jim Giallombardo to make sure this once in a lifetime dream became a perfect reality. Greg and designer Jordan Campbell helped us make hundreds of big and small decisions for our new home, and the result is a Craftsman style dwelling that is warm, beautiful, spacious, and well-thought out with incredible attention to detail. Charlie Moore and company give you the kind of artistic, personal, and caring service that is simply priceless. From intimate bedrooms to a coffered ceiling great room to luxurious baths to interesting stair landings and built-ins, their work was impeccable, and their teamwork with Jim made the absolute most out of a small lot.”
AXIS ARCHITECTS

“We have been extremely satisfied with the workmanship and professionalism of Sahnur Bostan of Axis Design Build. Sahnur has communicated with us constantly and has been thorough in all of the plans he has put together for us to date. Sahnur worked with us on designing a 4,500 square foot addition to to our home. We were happy with the ideas he came up with and the attention to detail with every aspect of the plan. He was a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond to make sure our needs and wants were incorporated into the plans. We would definitely recommend him and Axis Design Build for plans large or small.”

Steve is extremely professional and knowledgeable, and we know that when we use his design and remodeling services we will always have a job well done! We highly recommend O'Neill Architects Inc!”

“We used Todd on our house renovation, and we had a terrific experience. Todd was easy to work with and we liked and used most of his ideas on our final project. We also appreciate that he listened to our concerns and made adjustments to the plans based on our back and forth discussions. He was always on time for meetings and responsive to our requests and questions. We were impressed with the level of detail that was in our final plans. We feel his rates were competitive and we would use him again.”
Tucker Architects, Inc.
City of Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers
Jul 28, 2015
“We had Mr. Tucker design a ground floor master suite addition of about 800 sq. ft. to our about 1800 sq. ft. 2 story abode comprised of a large walk in closet, a commodious master bath, and a large bedroom with integral sitting area. The addition of a hall way to connect the addition to the balance of the house had the beneficial effect of adding a breakfast "nook" to our previously renovated kitchen and a third informal "owner's" entrance to the house. One of the important design goals was to preserve my wife's ability to observe and enjoy the park like back yard/garden and the birds therein from the kitchen and the bedroom. Another goal was that the addition not appear to be just a box stuck onto the side of the existing house. The main design criteria was to provide a ground floor living environment so we can maintain our independent living arrangement to the end. Bill's design hit he mark on all accounts and we are thoroughly satisfied with it and quite comfortable in it. The neighbors and drive bys have all been quite complementary, also.”
W.C. Ralston Architects
City of Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers
Jul 9, 2015
“We have used W.C Ralston for many high-end custom homes, both for spec and for clients. The level of service, creativity and passion that Warren's group shows translates to a unique and functional design. Having the ability to transfer the client's vision onto paper is an art, and W.C Ralston has that ability.”
Claude C. Lapp Architects, LLC
City of Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers
Apr 19, 2013
“We have used Claude C. Lapp for architectural plans for updates and additions to our 1931 "Cotswold" cottage three times. He has also done work for other family members and friends. He is very intuitive and maintains the proper period or style of the house while making it functional and aesthetically pleasing. He is very gifted and we wouldn't hesitate to refer him to anyone interested in making their existing home more functional or enjoyable or for drawing plans for a new build.”
Cathleen Curtin Architects PLC
City of Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers
Apr 28, 2013
“Where to begin with my comments about Cathleen Curtin, the positive side, or the negative… well, that’s easy! There is no negative, so here are the positives!! Having scaled down a good bit from a larger home, and now residing in my interesting apartment in Old Town, Alexandria, I needed to make improvements and changes that would make this small place my haven. It began with getting bids on a bathroom renovation. Having contacted other architectural services and builders in the area that I knew, I found that the recommendations (and the pricing) were all over the place, and I really couldn’t tell what they were going to do. I also felt that they were not listening to me regarding the need to connect the bedroom space and my master bathroom. From the minute I ran this idea by Cathleen, she “got me” and she listened to me and she responded quickly. Within a couple days of our first meeting, she was back to me with a clear and concise overview and pricing. I was impressed with her level of detail, as well as her efficiency. And, this impression never changed thru out what became a much bigger project. Where the others all were going to expand my bathroom and take away space from my bedroom, Cathleen Curtin was able to give me all that I wanted, AND MORE, in the same footprint – saving money, time and probably a lot of unknown issues in this old building. Her creative use of space and layout resulted in a bathroom that I absolutely love, and others marvel at. Once deciding to work with Ms. Curtin, I realized that I felt safe and comfortable to do more of what really needed to be done to my living space. She gave me that comfort. Having had some experience with such projects in the past, it was knowing that she was not only the Architect, but also the Project Manager, that gave me the confidence to take this on. Always available for questions, and always quick to find solutions to issues as they came along, she drove this project hard and fast, and with a fabulous outcome. The project included not only the master bathroom, but a new laundry room, leveling the floors in my bedroom, insulation where there was none, built in cabinetry that eliminated the need for furniture in the bedroom, re-doing of floors, adding hardwood floors where they did not exist, brilliant storage cabinets, new lighting thru out, a life changing gas fireplace, creative kitchen solutions that make me love cooking again, a very special powder room, and so much more. I am thrilled in my new space – and enjoy it more than I ever dreamed possible. Cathleen was a joy to work with, a consummate professional, a willing ear, a great production manager, and attended to each and every detail of the project. On site every day, often several times, staying ahead of all contractors with selections and materials, and kept me informed with clear and consistent communication. Running a busy enterprise, I needed this style of professional oversight, and feel that not only did she give me a wonderful new home to enjoy, she gave me great service and great value in a time that we often do not get what we expect. With Cathleen, I got more than I ever expected!”
