Featured Reviews for Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers

Claude C. Lapp Architects, LLC
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.”
Hains Architects, Inc.

“Jeff is a terrific visionary -- he is a wonderful listener and makes sure that the project reflects what the client wants, not what he wants. His artistry, creativity and ingenuity is put to the service of figuring out what is best for the client and their needs. He is very patient and great helping families find the right solution for them. He is a terrific advocate with contractors and helps keep projects on schedule.”

“Seth is an amazing architect. We have worked with him on 3 major projects and this last one was a complete gut down and addition. My wife and I highly recommend Seth and his team. He is creative and listens to his customers. He is always pushing to do more with his designs.”

“David Small Designs provides excellent Architectural Design services. The staff is thoughtful, courteous and thorough in their work. David's office has collaborated on many projects with our office and has made the process of exchanging design ideas and knowledge efficient with our office and clients.”
Moore Architects, PC
Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers
Dec 16, 2015
“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.”
T.J. Gilbride Architects, Inc.
Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers
Mar 15, 2017
“We have worked with Tom Gilbride, president of T.J. Gilbride Architects, on a few projects and are currently building one with them now. Tom's approach with the clients is excellent. He takes the time to make sure they understand the details of the project before it's being built. His knowledge of details and products available on the market is extensive. He makes clients feel informed and at ease during the whole design and construction process. From a general contractor's position working with his drawings, we have been pleased with the level of detail and clarity they provide. He's also involved on the construction side of projects from a construction administrative standpoint. Unlike some other architects we've worked with, he's helpful and available to the general contractor and the subs as needed throughout the project. He has a good understanding of the means and methods of construction demonstrated in his construction drawings. This understanding is also a refreshing trait for a builder that fosters a good relationship and communication throughout the project, ultimately leading to a well built project and satisfied clients. I would highly recommend T.J. Gilbride Architects to anyone looking to build or renovate as well as to builders looking to partner with a quality architectural firm.”
Willoughby Design, LLC

“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.”
Purple Cherry Architects

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”

“This company is building our custom home. It is now in the process of being built. So far they are doing a great job.”
Rill Architects
Fairfax, VA Architects and Building Designers
Sep 28, 2012
“In my opinion, Rill Architects is the top residential architectural firm in the Washington, DC Metro area. I've followed their work online and enjoy seeing their amazing projects published in local luxury publications, as well as national magazines. I've met Jim Rill and his team and they are very approachable. If I ever had a need for an architect - for a new home or renovation - Rill Architects would be the company I would call. While I know they can design any style of home, I've admired their green projects as well as the way they take the environment into consideration on each project. You can tell by the way the house sits in the setting. Well Done Rill Architects!”
