Featured Reviews for Philadelphia, PA Architects and Building Designers

David C. Bennett Architects LLC
Philadelphia, PA Architects and Building Designers
24 Aug 2014
“We hired David to design a complete re-build of a small bungalow cottage in Stone Harbor, NJ. Our decision was based on some very impressive homes he designed on the island, as well as excellent references from past clients. David's charge was challenging - design a classic shore cottage with a strong attention to architectural detail and lots of functionality in a very small space (while staying within budget). David more than exceeded expectations. The project was completed in 2012, and the house is fabulous!! It was selected by a local charity for its annual fundraising tour of distinctive homes. To this day we are still receiving compliments from passers-by whenever we sit out on the front porch. David was a pleasure to work with - always good-natured and accommodating - and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the design - including (but not limited to) exterior roofing and siding, interior woodwork, bathrooms, kitchen, and lighting.”

“This company provided architectural services for a private residence. The home was a gut rennovation. The layout of the home was completely revamped to maximize a large space, which had been poorly laid out by the previous owners. The group also designed an addition for the home to improve the flow of the space. Careful details were added throughout the home to give it an easy, simple and modern feel. The result of the design and planning turned a previously unpleasant looking home into a beautiful one that the owners love.”
Studio 810 Design/Build
Philadelphia, PA Architects and Building Designers
21 May 2013
“We are writing to wholeheartedly recommend Timothy (Tim) Strosser of Studio 810 Design as a designer and general contractor for home improvement. In 2012, we met Tim at the Philadelphia Home Show, and were impressed by Tim’s portfolio of previous designs and building projects. On his first visit to our home in the Philadelphia suburbs Tim impressed us again with his instant understanding of our home improvement needs. We wanted to build a new bathroom in a little-used space that was attached to our master bedroom, but Tim suggested a much better solution; building an addition to the house’s second floor, and placing the bathroom in it. This way we got a fabulously looking new master bathroom that is an envy of our friends and neighbors, and avoided a mistake of building a bathroom that would be to small and not convenient. Timothy also designed and built for us a mudroom in front of our house, completely redesigned and rebuilt our patio, and changed the siding all around the house. We are very satisfied with the quality of his design and workmanship of his crew. Tim is a very experienced project manager, and he worked hard to accommodate our specific requirements during the project and to adjust all the logistics accordingly. He was able to keep the project deadlines despite very unfavorable weather conditions, the climax of which was Hurricane Sandy. During the project we occasionally changed our mind regarding some details (e.g., selection of tiles), and Tim was always ready to either accept our new ideas or, when they were not practical, offer very good alternatives. During the project we developed a trusting, friendly relationship with Timothy and many of his crew members. We were so satisfied with our collaboration with Tim that, after the first big project was completed, we tasked him with a couple of smaller projects in our house (e.g., staircase renovation), and outside (landscaping). We are sure that, with his great artistic taste, his extensive technical experience, and his understanding of individual clients’ characters and preferences, Timothy can exceed expectations of the most demanding clients. We already recommended the services of Studio 810 to our neighbors, and we recommend them to you.”

“We have worked with Philip Ivory Architects on numerous projects over the course of the last 15 years. They are a great team to work with, great creative input & talent and their finished projects are always superbly done. Philip Ivory Architects plans are always well thought out with plenty of attention given to even the smallest detail. During any project, there will always be problems that arise – Philip and his team can work around these and provide viable solutions while staying true to the original design, budget and schedule. I would highly recommend Philip Ivory Architects to anyone considering adding to their existing home or building a new home.”

“Gaskill Architecture designed a beautiful modern home that was tailored to fit my unique building site. Robert's ability to analyze the land and create a design that blends with nature is amazing. The design process was very engaging and the tools he uses were invaluable during the design process. I would highly recommend Gaskill Architecture for their professionalism, attention to detail and understanding of what the client is looking for throughout the design process. Thanks again Bob!”

“Steve is great to work with. He drew up plans for reconfiguring our ground floor to accomodate a laundry room , for a guest suite in the basement, and for a future project to add a bathroom on the second floor. We were very pleased with the options he provided and with the result. We would recommend him to anyone who wishes to improve the appearance and functionality of their home.”

UNGER & MAHNS ARCHITECTS
Philadelphia, PA Architects and Building Designers
17 Jul 2014
“My husband and I first hired Unger and Mahns in 2000 to build our 5500 Sq. ft. house in Rumson,NJ.The design was classic,sophisticated,tasteful and timeless."Michael and Michael" guided us through the design and construction and were available on site whenever the builder needed them.When we sold the house in 2008,the structural engineer that the buyers hired to inspect the house said it was one of the best built homes he had ever inspected. In 2006,we hired them again to do the plans for our summer home in Cape May, N.J. They designed our fabulous dutch colonial that looks like it is 100 years old.We are consistently told that is it one of the prettiest homes in town and not a day goes by where someone doesn't stop and comment on it.Our builder in CM said that the plans he received from U and M were the most detailed and complete set of plans he had ever worked with. They designed the new Rumson Country Club Pool House.It is a masterpiece! I am a real estate agent and my husband is as type "A" as they come.We are tough customers and pretty demanding.We recommend U and M 100% and feel they are worth their weight in gold.They are not the least expensive in the area but you get what you pay for.They are thorough,knowledgeable and very experienced.”
Bishop and Smith Architects

“We are very pleased with the result of more than a year's work, starting with pen and paper and a discussion on what we needed in a home, reviewing and editing floor plans, getting to plot plans, elevation views, and ultimately a final set of plans. This was no easy task, considering we were building a new home post-Sandy, at the Jersey Shore, and with flood maps changing during the process, being in dual zoning districts, and with required building heights uncertain. But, finally, we are done (mostly!) Scott, Jack and Bill were all great to deal with, they listened to our needs and wants, and helped us make decisions on the trade-offs you always need to consider when space is limited on the lot and you have a long list of needs and wants. The style of the house is a cape cod, the architectural detail is outstanding and it fits well into the existing neighborhood which is situated one block from the start of the historic district here in Ocean City. Ultimately, we love the house and get compliments on it every single day from strangers walking past and from family and friends who are visiting. So many people have asked us if they can have a tour. Thanks Scott, Jack and Bill for everything.”
