Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, CT
Douglas VanderHorn Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, 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."

Laura Kaehler Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, CT
"Laura Kaehler is a gifted architect, who specializes in residential design of unique and custom homes. She listens to her clients’ needs and preferences, interprets these needs, and then transforms them into beautiful and comfortable homes. Her attention to detail is the key to making a home special. Laura does not have a “signature style”. She deliberately allows her clients’ tastes and desires to direct the course of her design. Laura has designed several projects for me in the past, including a 2000 square foot addition, a master bedroom suite, a complete kitchen renovation, two new homes built for spec and currently still in progress is a partial kitchen renovation. She is my go to person when I feel the need to make a home improvement. Laura enjoys her craft and it shows."

Colangelo Associates Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, CT
"I bought an old house on the harbor in terrible condition. I was dissatisfied with the first 2 architects I consulted. I then hired Vince Colangelo of Colangelo Associates Architects. I am extremely pleased with the house and with the experience of working with Vince. I cannot speak highly enough about it, but I have recommended him often. He is exemplary in every way. He is both very creative and practical (having been a builder) - a great combination. The breadth of his knowledge of every aspect of the job (doors, windows, zoning, drainage - you name it) was pretty amazing. He was always quickly responsive, and the opposite of a prima donna. This was my first time doing such a large project and I felt most comfortable assembling a team. Vince was a willing collaborator at all times. Excellent work. Extremely pleasant guy to work with. Always fair in his billing. My very highest possible recommendation. If you have a job and you don't at least talk to him - you're making a mistake."

Trillium Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, CT
"Trillium architects designed a beautiful home for us in Connecticut. I feel the house reflects what we wanted to achieve and for the past 4 years have been extremely happy here. We have space, light and a nice flow to every room and we receive many compliments on the exterior as well."

DeMotte Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, CT
"We hired Brad to design a spec house for us in Rye, NY. As an Architect myself, I was extremely happy with the quality of work produced and the communication between us. It was a pleasure to work with Brad, and his understanding of our needs and requirements was second to none. Brad listened well to our needs and was able to efficiently express them in graphic form, & he always worked in an organized & professional manner. He was always easily available by phone & email, always returning my calls & emails promptly. The construction drawings were done to be within our construction budget, & when changes were made he was gracious & fair with regard to fees for extra services. He also helped us in selecting materials, & we were happy with those selections & the variety as well. While we haven't started construction yet, on past projects he was always accessible and able to clarify field conditions and changes by clients. We would definitely hire him again, and we would (and have) recommended him to our other clients who were also very happy with his service."

Mockler Taylor Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, CT
"Mockler Taylor Architects has been my go to Architectural Firm for the past 15 years. Why? First, I did my homework. I exhaustively interviewed, in person, many Architectural firms (big and small), designers, builders and single practitioner Architects from Westchester County and Lower Fairfield County and ended up picking Lisa and Sean because of their quiet confidence and professional demeanor. Their standard portfolio strengths are: Solid book of business in scope, size and quality of projects, discerning decisions in scale and taste, a surrounding mix of trusted and respected builders, and associated trades people underscoring the feeling we are lucky to be working with these people. Sean and Lisa pay special attention to detail and understand when and how to apply the right pressures to achieve any shared goal. The objectives of any project are usually: deliver on time and on (or near) budget with as little aggravation as possible - This is the team that can get it done. They make the process enjoyable in real-time, less stressful thru out and fondly memorable years later. Having an understanding of things like: Neighbors, Town Politics, P&Z issues and other underlying elements that come up during a design and build process are things in their wheelhouse – Often folks representing you in this field will need to possess the right temperament and slight of hand to properly navigate complicated and perhaps sensitive issues at any given time with a myriad of difficult people. Sean and Lisa have always delivered in spades. I have challenged them with several projects over the years and have noted them below - 4 in total awarded Mockler Taylor commissions (1 Residential & 3 Commercial). Each different, unique and all successful in their own right. I would without hesitation recommend working with this firm and consistently do so any day someone asks “Do you know any good firms or could you recommend any good Architects”? Mockler Taylor is at the VERY TOP of this list.

Thompson Raissis Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, CT
"Scott did a total remodel of a 1906 house in 2008. He did a brilliant job utilizing existing space, duplicating original molding, doors and windows, and turning our house into a total "Jewel Box". Its the fourth remodel I've done and there was not one argument or disagreement. Scott's attention to detail is superb, the subs he works with are craftsmen, he was on time and really worked to get the best quality for the price we were spending. It was such a fun year doing this project and I would highly recommend him."

Vicente Burin Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, CT
"I have had the privilege of working with Vicente Burin Architect for many years. I have retained them to design several spec homes and many of these have won a number of awards. The designs that they create are both innovative and classic. Recently I have had the opportunity to construct homes that they have custom designed for individual clients. In both of these instances I have found Paulo and Martina to be responsive, very clear with their visions and expectations of excellence. It has been an honor to work with them and I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking architectural services."
- Heine Development Corp
Robert A. Cardello Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Riverside, CT
"I've used Bob and his crew to design a den addition for us. Bob has both an architectural and design background which is a huge plus. Not only did the den look great as a room, but he was helpful at figuring out how each area would function well and what to put in that space. He worked great with my builder and was a great go between when things got a big hairy. Funny and affable, Bob was a pleasure to work with."

How do I find the best Riverside 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 Riverside 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 Riverside, 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 Riverside, 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 Riverside 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?
