Distinctive Architecture

“Bill Waddell listens to his clients and then conveys their wants and dreams to a design. He is a great advocate for the client and interfaces well with the building contractor and subs for a successful result!”

“Barbara Richter is an architect second to none! My husband is a disabled veteran with needs for adaptable housing that will enable him some degrees of independence in his daily living. This means that our house needs renovation- an added room to accommodate his needs and other adjustments to the home. Barbara came to our rescue and began the process by providing the blueprints and schematic drawings. It is how she did it that continues to impress me as she performed her duties professionally, courteously, and respect for my husband, a retired disabled veteran and for me, his wife. She listened intently and recorded our wish list of needs and wants; she let us dream! Then Barbara took our dreams and planned for our needs based on funding, practicality, efficiency and specification from the federal government. We strongly believe that Barbara saw us as more than “just clients.” We believe she viewed us as persons she connected with and wanted to help. We believe that Barbara loves her work and genuinely cares for those she serves. She has a brilliant mind and is so knowledgeable and skillful in her profession. Barbara worked as a team player with the Project Contractor and the Veterans Administration Official in Winston-Salem. When asked to send additional information or submit revised schematic drawings she did it, even with her busy schedule and in a timely manner with enormous patience. Additionally, as it regards her services, she offers rates that are very reasonable and fair. We are deeply appreciative of the help she has given us to begin the building of a new room for my husband that requires some renovation to our home. It is without hesitation and reservations and with enthusiasm that I strongly recommend Richter-Norton Architecture, PLLC for building and renovation needs.”
Hutch Johnson WHJ Design
Architects and Building Designers in Durham, NC

“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Hutch on various projects spanning a number of years. On two projects, I was the owner’s representative/project coordinator, so I have seen him through the eyes of a client. On others, I’ve worked on the contractor’s team as selection coordinator, and have seen him through the eyes of a peer. I also work for Hutch as a bookkeeper, so I see him as a business man, and I watch how he relates to all members on any project team. Hutch is not a brand to sell. He is a creative listener who delivers what the client dreams of or requires. When reality sets in for the client, he helps harness the scope so that it fits the budget, but maintains the superior quality of design and function that are important to the client, regardless of scale. I’ve also worked on projects with other designers. When on a “Hutchless” project, one thing I notice almost immediately (and miss terribly) is Hutch’s ability to know how a space will be used or lived in. His perception and foresight are far superior to many other designers. In addition, he knows how materials will function and esthetically relate to each other, so that spaces just plain work — and they look fabulous in the process. Amazingly, with such focus on the design and esthetics of a project, he is forever cognizant of the structural integrity of a building. He knows what works, and what doesn’t. Hutch is very good at guiding his clients through the process, which can be overwhelming. He’s realistic, he issues alerts when needed and he will do what the client insists upon in spite of his better judgment, so long as it does not produce an inferior or dangerous structure. I look forward to working on more projects with Hutch, and to referring him to anyone who needs a thoughtful professional who is really good at what he does and loads of fun to work with. He takes his work seriously, but is anything but stogy!!”
BellaDomus Residential Design Studio

19 Feb 2013
“Working with Belladomus has been a great pleasure. Their design plans have hugely improved the livability and attractiveness of our home. We especially appreciate their use of natural light to enhance the spaces. We staged our major home improvements in three phases, beginning in 2006 with addition of a screened porch, new decks, breakfast/sun room, and family room renovation. We were so happy with James Morgan's creativity, respect for our budget, and careful attention during construction, that we knew we would continue to use BellaDomus design services. Our next project, a new front porch, and addition to the second story for an enlarged master suite including new bath, was a fantastic improvement to the house. Beth's design talent really showed in her selections of tile, flooring, and fixtures. We are now working with James and Beth on the final stage, with a kitchen/dining room redesign and updates to the entry way, and we are eager to see the plans.”

“We had a very complicated kitchen remodel -- our home was built 90 years ago . We wanted to preserve the style from that era while making design/flow more consistent with the efficiencies of present time. Traci D'Alessio did a phenomenal job in meeting this challenge. her thoughtful and meticulous approach, exceptional skills of listening, and genuine interest in our preferences resulted in an award winning kitchen. I would hire her again for any project. I will also mention that we had the added challenge of employing a design/build firm for our contracting/building needs which meant that at times there were conflicts and potential awkwardness with 2 architects involved. When it was necessary and she felt that the product might be compromised, Traci D'Alessio managed these potential conflicts well -- an underappreciated but VERY important skill. Last, Traci has an exceptional command of the most up-to-date technology in her profession. This enables her to make changes with lightning speed (in comparison to the surprisingly archaic methods of many local architects) -- this will save you not only time but money.”

“We hired Bizios Architecht to design our house and we were very happy with the whole process. The firm started by helping us clarify what we wanted and then made suggestions on how to achieve this. Gerogia Bizios and her team designed a house achieving our objectives within our budget and worked well with the contractor to make sure these were realized. In addition, we had a strange lot and they sited the house perfectly!”

“L. Meyers brought me in as a preservation consultant to assist one of their homeowners with preservation tax credits on a kitchen renovation. I was impressed with the thoroughness of their preparations for me, the ease of communication, and also with their clear focus on customer service. The homeowner was obviously pleased with the work, and I look forward to working with Meyers again.”

“Sara at 4/1 designed a screen porch for our 1920s bungalow. The resulting design perfectly matches the house, down to the tiniest detail. During construction, Sara worked closely with the contractor to ensure correctness and was available to us for consultation on any and all details. In addition to being very skilled and very professional, she was a pleasure to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed the process and would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Ellen Cassilly Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Durham, NC
8 Jul 2015
“Ellen Cassilly, Architect was the architect for a major renovation on a residence on which our company was the general contractor. The renovations included a bikram yoga room, a sunspace and an art gallery. All aspects of the work were complicated due to form and function. Ellen resourced some of the best experts in the area to accomplish the functional part of the design and we worked as a team throughout the project to bring about a very successful result in style and use for the owners. Her design is distinctive and she and her staff were a pleasure to work with. Ed Hauser, President Hauser Building Company, Inc.”
