We worked with Patti Wilder Dallarosa, at Wilder Architecture & Planning, P.C., to design an accessory building to our home that incorporated a greenhouse, two car garage, and a studio. Because we live in a 100 year old home in a historic neighborhood, it was especially important to us that the new building look as if it had been built at the same time as our house, and that it match as many of the historic architectural details as possible.
Patti was simply fabulous to work with on this project. She spent the time we needed to get to know us and to understand our expectations for both character and the functionality of the building. Once she had her first concept drawings, we met to fine tune, and then finalize, the design. Patti delivered on time, and on our budget.
What we also appreciated about working with Patti was that she is well connected with excellent builders and engineers – and we ended up working with people she recommended to build the project she designed. She also was available throughout the construction to consult with the builders when they had questions about the design.
We ended up with a truly beautiful building that complements our house, and fits in perfectly in the neighborhood. Our neighbors also have told us how much they appreciate that it looks like the building has always been here. Plus, the spaces – the green house and studio and, of course, the garage – function perfectly for the job they were designed to do. We have already recommended Patti to friends and colleagues, and we will definitely use her services in the future. — Old Town Clients (Berthoud, CO)
