Happy clients

“We hired Marilyn to design our house, without any idea of what we wanted it to look like, but knowing exactly how we wanted it to function. We’ve been living here for six years, and it functions exactly as we needed it to, and looks great, too! When we recently decided to make a long-planned expansion, we didn’t even consider another architect—we went straight to Marilyn.”

“Marilyn’s design chops are easy to see just by looking at her work. But if I had to highlight what makes working with Marilyn as a developer such a pleasure, I’d point to two things: First, Marilyn knows construction. When making constructability decisions or comparing building systems, you can rely on Marilyn to provide both a designer’s and builder’s perspective on the challenge at hand. I could always count on her for a creative solution or (even better) a couple of options. Second, Marilyn’s ability to push the team is rare. I’ve worked with many architects, and Marilyn is second to none in her proactiveness and control of the huge variety of parallel deliverables a complex project demands.”
