During our initial meeting, Brad asked so many questions that we had never even considered as part of the design process. He asked questions relating to how we actually live our lives on a daily basis. Obviously these questions were specific to us and our lifestyle, and I now know the answers had a direct impact on the design. He asked very thorough questions and listened to us completely.
Brad knew and asked all the right questions and we were able to make our final decision, not based on price, but rather on appropriateness to our project. He and his team’s ability to talk with contractors was helpful for us to make the right decisions which was important.
"The details are not the details. They make the design." This quote by Charles Eames personifies Shapiro & Company's mantra in fulfilling our vision for our home. We were honored to work with Brad Shapiro as we watched our dream become a reality, on time and on budget. His creativity, knowledge, and experience enhanced our design. He arrived as our architect and left as our friend. Our time with Shapiro & Company began and ended with a Five Star experience.
Thank you! I love every bit of it and am soooo looking forward to moving in! It's everything I wanted and more!
Great process. Everything is so beautifully organized and thoughtfully detailed. Very different from anything I've ever experienced. It's such a great collaboration and a wonderful partnership.
Brad and his staff were very professional and experienced. He incorporated what we wanted and worked well with the design review committee to ensure we were approved. We have a very unusual lot and he came up with some really creative ideas.
Brad was really very good about guiding us through the entire process including choosing the builder, landscaper and interior designer. We really relied on his experience.
