Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
Newick Architects
Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
"I engaged Newick Architects to design the renovation and reconstruction of my home. I believe it was a very good client/architect relationship. Additionally, we partnered with a contractor of my choice and it became a fruitful 3-way collaboration. (In fact, the architect and contractor have worked together on numerous projects subsequent to my introduction.) I researched over 60 architects before selecting Newick Architects, and did so because I believed we shared an aesthetic sensibility, which was borne out by the project's successful fruition."

Ted Whitten, Architect & Writer
Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
"Ted is extremely professional and thorough. I have worked with him on renovation projects on 2 different apartments in Manhattan. Both were well designed and planned and our family was thrilled with the results. Both projects had multiple unanticipated logistical issues come up that Ted handled with efficiency and confidence. Would highly recommend."
- Michael Schwartz
Dvisionone Architects
Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
"We have worked with Michael Raso and with his firm Dvisionone Architects on many different projects in two homes over the past 18 years. Each time we have been impressed with Michael's attention to detail and sensitivity toward our needs and design requests. He follows every project from beginning to end and is always available should questions arise. Although we are just now wrapping up a major addition to our home, we are already looking forward to future collaborations with him."

Crisp Architects
Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
"Working with Jimmy Crisp and his associates was a great and valuable learning experience that could not have turned out better than it did. Jimmy truly met, and in many instances, went beyond our expectations. The project, which was a complete gut renovation, went very smoothly and it did come in on budget with the exception of new items that were included after our original quote. Of course there were differences of opinions and long discussions about changes/desired outcomes and new costs, however, I would say that because of Jimmy's constant presence at the site, complete knowledge of exactly what was suppose to happen at all stages of the project and calm manner we escaped situations that could, at the time, have been less satisfactory. Jimmy, the associates and clerical employees of his firm are all a 10 in my book! My experience with Crisp Architects makes me believe that anyone seeking a great architect, backed by a most professional staff, could not do better than to choose Crisp Architects."

Emilia Ferri Architecture + Design
Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
"I had a great experience working with Emilia. Her ideas were always very practical and smart but with a bit of the unexpected thrown in. The originality and expertise she showed in relation to design was a wonderful asset to have, and she incorporated them all so seamlessly into the overall project. And her attention to detail ensured all areas of the project were covered and taken into account so nothing was left out. I look forward to our next project together."

JMKA | architects
Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
"I am a builder who works with many architects on a yearly basis, but whenever I am asked for a recommendation I seem to always refer Jeff of JMKA. Jeff Kaufman has an excellent eye for architecture and always seems to come up with a very functional but unique design. I have done several projects with Jeff and I see the projects full circle. From the initial client meeting to design, bidding, project management, to completion. In the initial meeting with the client Jeff will walk around the existing house listening to the clients expectations, just taking it all in, and then CLICK! It amazes me when Jeff starts explaining his vision and sketching out his ideas of the design which is not exactly what the homeowner was envisioning, it's better. Just about every time you hear from the client "huh I would have never thought of doing it that way but I love it!" That ability to tune in to the wants and needs of a client while still keeping the architectural integrity to the overall project, I think is the definition of a good architect, and why I will continue to refer Jeff Kaufman.

Joseph Bergin Architect PC
Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
"Joe Bergin is a wonderful architect, and a wonderful person to work with. Joe is creative, has a tremendous sense of style, and is at the same time steeped in the history and traditions of architecture yet has a strong sense of the modern conveniences and living flow for today's family and lifestyle. Joe recently concevied and designed a 5,000 sq ft Shingle Style home for me and my wife in Chatham, Cape Cod, and we could not be more happy with the result. Joe met every time deadline we threw at him (and a few were admittedly unreasonable deadlines), and he absolutely exceeded our expectations at each stage of the process. What we have now is a treasure of a home that will be cited for years to come as a quintissential Shingle Style home in the genre of the "Architecure of the American Summer." Joe is also a kind and patient man, who is as much concerned about listening to us, his clients, as creating a beautiful structure that will be pleasing for generations to come. My wife and I are so pleased with his work, and we would of course hope to work with Joe on our next project."

Douglas VanderHorn Architects
Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
"When my husband and I took on the project of completely renovating an 1846 Greek Revival house in the back country of Greenwich, we ran into difficulties with the architect we had hired. Doug VanderHorn came to our rescue! Many architects might have been unwilling to take on a project that had already started, but Doug, to my everlasting gratitude, not only agreed to work with us, but brought fresh, new, creative and improved ideas to the table. His taste is impeccable and he ended up helping me with all kinds of related issue like bathroom tiles, special effects in moldings and fireplaces and placement of furniture in a difficult room. He is easy to work with and very realistic in his suggestions. I could not recommend him more highly! -Mrs. Russell S. Reynolds, Jr."

Michael LoBuglio Architects
Architects and Building Designers in New Haven, CT
"A kitchen renovation turned into an expansion of the room. Michael was recommended to me by my brother-in-law who also builds large projects. We found Michael to be prompt in returning calls, on time with appointments and most of all full of great ideas! He showed us his extensive portfolio and we were truly impressed. He is easy to work with mainly because he's a great listener."

How do I find the best New Haven architect for my home design project?


It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire Connecticut subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the New Haven residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in New Haven, CT provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?


As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in New Haven, CT are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective New Haven interior architects:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
