"Richard Broderick designed for us a single family house on San Juan Island. The application of his sensitivity to the natural setting, artistic vision and appreciation of functionality resulted in the most comfortable and beautiful house. Prior to construction we've heard that it was a very stressful endeavor and yet with Richard's positive attitude, flexibility and creative assistance building our own home became very rewarding. Richard Broderick's services were timely and affordable. He was attentive to every detail and worked very well with our builder providing clear instructions and clarifications as needed. His understanding of financial constraints allowed us to build on budget without compromising the aesthetics or functionality of the house."
"We hired Richard to design a custom home. He did a great job of incorporating our wishes and needs into a beautiful structure that also fits well into the surrounding neighborhood. His availability, flexibility and responsiveness throughout made the process go smoothly. We get many compliments on our home from both friends and strangers. Having lived in it for almost a year, there's nothing that we feel was left out or that we would change. We heartily recommend Richard."
"Richard designed a new home for us and was involved from start to finish. We found him to be great to work with. His design ideas were creative and thoughtful. He was available throughout the project for consultation and review. Our project presented several challenges and Richard worked with us and with our contractor to resolve them in elegant fashion."
"Richard was able to take the vision I had for our addition and incorporate it into the existing structure in such a way that melds with the old construction gracefully. The space added a huge amount of extra room and light to our home, something greatly needed at the time. Working with Richard was very easy, professional and timely, someone that we would gratefully use again."
"We have worked with Richard on several projects. He is great to work with. He has clever ideas, while at the same time, creating the exact look the customer wants. If the customer has a unique idea, Richard will figure out how to make it happen, and all the while staying on budget. I would use Richard again, and highly recommend him to others."
"I have been in buildings he has designed and I am very impressed. I am awed by Richard’s style - clean, crisp, contemporary, making the most of view opportunities and space optimization. I highly recommend him for at least a consultation. I will be surprised if you don’t sign on after that."
"Hiring an architect is a daunting proposition. You have to establish a relationship, often for a year or more, with an unknown person who is going to determine where and how you live for the foreseeable future, and spend a great deal of your money in the process.
Having just emerged from that experience with Richard Broderick, I can say truly you will be in good, intelligent, skilled, and caring hands. From initial consultation through the conceptual development, getting to a set of working plans, getting the requisite engineering and geo-tech work done and getting the necessary permits approved and signed off, Richard was completely committed to our project.
But it didn't stop there. He also followed throught the entire construction and finish process, being our advocate with the contractor, consulting with us and the contractor on the myriad of changes that inevitably occur along the way to building a custom house.
To say we are pleased would be a huge understatement. We would recommend Richard Broderick without hesitation for any architecture project."
