5 Reviews for Stuart Silk Architects
We hired Stuart Silk Architects for a partial renovation, but before long we expanded the scope to the entire house. We are engaged clients with a strong point of view so it was important to us to have a meeting of the minds. It was a pleasure to work with the SSA team. They took the time to understand what we wanted to create and the things that were important to us. We absolutely love the outcome. If I had to work with them again I would not hesitate. But forget it because I love my renovated home.
Our first experience with Stuart Silk Architects was a major remodel of an historic house in Seattle, which had suffered from several previous remodels. Stuart was brilliant in his reinvention of the master suite, disturbing the exterior as little as possible, but utilizing every window to the fullest. Our goals were to improve the flow of the house, open up the kitchen/family room to reflect modern tastes, give each of the bedrooms its own bathroom and ample closets, make the basement welcoming and functional, while retaining the character of the original architecture. Stuart did all of that and more. Costs were difficult to estimate in advance, as discoveries were made as interior demolition progressed. At the same time that we were remodeling this house, we began designing a new residence in the same neighborhood with Stuart Silk Architects. After 18 months, we sought bids on this design and chose a contractor that we had used previously. The resulting 8000 sq ft house is perfect in every detail, bright and airy with excellent flow, meeting all of our goals. The details are exquisite. Cost did exceed budget by a significant amount, some of which was beyond the architect's control, but we are extremely pleased with this house and the surrounding grounds.
Stuart Silk and his office planned, organized and oversaw the complete renovation of our home. Stuart's attention to detail is unsurpassed and his vision is crystal clear. He works well with contractors, designers and clients alike as he remains open minded while staying true to his vision. Stuart was able to lead us in knowing our mind and determining exactly what we wanted based on our general guidelines. Stuart was regularly able to give us a range of options and choices of design ideas at different price points. Stuart's talent lies in ability to create beautiful homes fit to each particular client. Our home is a perfect blend of traditional, as the house dictated, and contemporary which we were looking for. We could not be happier with the outcome and recommend Stuart and his office any chance we get.
They were timely, patient and professional. Do not push their ideas, only enhanced mine. Also, helped in making choices, in when it was important to spread the flash, and save the cash... I totally enjoyed my experience with Stuart Silk Architects.

Their ability to formulate design and assemble material make them one of the leading residential architectural firms in Seattle. A Stuart Silk traditional project is a benchmark of quality, and our products have no greater honor than to find here a home.
