Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
Michael McKinley and Associates, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
"We found a property we loved and wanted to tear it down but realized it was salvageable and hired Michael McKinley and Associates to help create our dream home. I've been an interior designer for 38 years and have my own ideas and have worked with hundreds of architects. The firm's attention to detail made them a joy to work with and I always looked forward to the next meeting. Michael McKinley and his entire staff listened carefully to me, respected my ideas and yet they brought many of their own creative ideas to the project. In the beginning of the project we asked Michael McKinley and Associates to give us a budget estimate and we were thrilled that the renovation came in on budget and on time...a rarity in this business."

Nautilus Architects LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
"Complete remodel of mid-century home interior. Chris Arelt is a grad of Yale School of Architecture, and his knowledge and creativity show in the results of this project. Ask him for photos of our award-winning kitchen. The details and custom cabinetry are superb - he listened to our needs and wants, and got it right!"
- Jack Meier
CK Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
"After researching and interviewing several other firms in the area, my husband and I were delighted to meet Russ Campaign. Our project was challenging and demanded a level of creativity that Russ met and exceeded. His ability to execute our vision within the confines of what could be done in the project as well as keeping the design practical in terms of cost was excellent. I would unconditionally recommend his firm, and look forward to working with them again in the future."

George Penniman Architects, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
"George Penniman is a very thoughtful, thorough and insightful architect. What I liked about working with him is he really listened to my requests and what I needed being a Mom of 3 teenagers. He did not bring his ego to the project, which I have dealt with, with other architects. He was quick to turn drawings around and absolutely present and available for any walk thru's or questions. He was a true professional."
- Michelle Luttrell
Jason Thomas Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
"Creating our new home with Jason Poremba, was a terrific experience. And now that we are living in it, our home has exceeded all expectations, due to his thoughtful design. The entire design and build process was very collaborative. Jason took time to listen and develop a relationship with our entire family, so that he understood how we live, and then designed an inspiring space that works perfectly with our lifestyle. His design expertise is evident in the way he successfully balanced a rather traditional exterior with the more contemporary, clean lines that we wanted for the interior. And his custom design details provided a really personalized style. Jason was mindful of our budget and helped us determine which elements of the house to prioritize. And throughout the project he provided options for managing costs without sacrificing quality. Jason’s enthusiasm and creativity made it a pleasure working with him - we highly recommend him!"

Kemper Associates Architects, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
"Without Jack my house would never have been built. We needed to tuck this little house into a narrow urban lot in a Historic District and make it look like it was always there. We survived 7! public hearings with heavy revision. Jack remained true to my original vision while accommodating the requirements of many other visions of what my house needed to be. His price was fair, his manner engaging and open. My house won an award and i gained a valued friend. He and and his staff are the best architectural firm ever."

JWM Architects LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
"We hired JWM after obtaining several estimates for the work to turn a hair salon into a gourmet coffee shop. He kept all of his time and work commitments and was very accomodating. He had great design ideas which we incorporated into our design. We really enjoyed working with John."

John R. Schroeder, AIA
Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
"John R. Schroeder, AIA, you have given us our dream home and by that I mean a home more beautiful than we could have imagined and yet completely suitable to our hectic everyday lives as a family with four young children. You listened to our random ideas and put them together into a design that is better than the sum of its parts and what's more, it was completed on schedule (I didn't think this ever happened!)."
- hugheskima
Mark Lawton Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Stonington, CT
"We hired Lawton Design Studio to renovate a house we had just bought. Mark designed my dream kitchen and turned a crummy in-law apartment into an upscale master suite - walk in closet and fabulous bathroom included. It's now almost two years later and we're still thrilled with the work. The kitchen is perfect for both intimate family dinners and large scale entertaining. And our master suite is a blessed oasis to which we happily retire every night. In fact, I don't like to travel as often as I used to because the accommodations rarely compare with what we have at home! Perhaps most importantly, however, is that we stayed on budget and fantastically on schedule - I gave no wiggle room on the end date and, impressively, everything was finished the day before. Moving and renovating a house is typically not fun or easy, but working with LDS was great. I completely trusted LDS to do the work well and give us a great finished product and we were not disappointed."

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