What PEOPLE say
I hired Thomas Architects to design a fully custom 5,000 square foot home in the North Shore of Chicago. I knew Thomas was the perfect fit for us after our initial conversation. Thomas took the time to listen to what we wanted and designed an unbelievable home for us. The project was very challenging due to the trapezoid shape of the lot, but Thomas had some great ideas that many others didn't even consider. I fully appreciated the immense details he put into the design which makes our home truly unique. His fees are fair and reasonable, and he always made himself available to address any questions or concerns. Would absolutely hire again.
Thomas is a true pro. My company, Design Insight Inc., has had the pleasure of collaborating on projects in the past. TB has always come through to work on projects &/or offer referrals/colleagues. Their attention to detail & professionalism is top notch. We look forward to working with them again in the future. I would definitely recommend them!
After a phone call, Tom agreed to visit me and discuss the renovation of my condo. On-site, I found him both open to my ideas and replete with information that made sense for alternatives to my initial thoughts.
I contracted him then and there to prepare my drawings and his turnaround was quick; within two weeks I saw my dreams on paper. He then shepherded my plans through the village and around the bureaucratic red-tape in short order.
I highly recommend his services!
Understood our budget and provided quality options to fit within it. Thom also was able to recommend reliable contractors which is very helpful.
Overall, I would say that our experience with Thom was great! His pricing is really reasonable compared to others out there and at the start of the process he really sits with you to work everything out. He came to our house multiple times to go over plans and pointed us in the right direction when we were getting overzealous. Getting permits is always hard--and that took longer than expected for a small project like ours. I wasn't thrilled with the fact that his expediter hadn't realized that the city guy assigned to approving our permits had been fired which was the big hangup. (How did I find that out and he/she not?). There have been some very minor flaws in the plans as we've gone through the building process--which I am sure would have been corrected had we brought them to his attention. In the long run we had a great experience and would recommend him to anyone that wants someone to get the job done without the snobbery and intimidation of some of the other teams out there.
