FR Review:
Kathryn McGraw Berry creates modern, calm tableaux that stand the test of time. Whether a Classic Six tweaked toward a loft or a waterfront cabin with a peaceful perspective, Berry develops a composed scene that distinguishes a home from its neighbors. She has a diverse and strong skill set both as a residential and commercial architect and designer. Work has been done with The Rockefeller Group and Keith Richards, and it spans from Park Ave to Beijing to Michigan. A Grosse Pointe native herself, Berry brings that famed classic, clean-lined aesthetic to every project. As the sole proprietor, she selectively takes on apartment renovations and ground-up projects, organizing jobs with her exacting demands to contractors.

Berry received a B.A. in literature from Berkeley, a B.Arch. from Cooper Union, and formed her business in 1985. Clients from twenty years back still love showing friends their renovated homes, which maintain a fresh, contemporary flair. Where other designers get lost in the grandeur of possibilities, Berry stays grounded and approaches obstacles and constraints with a “no gimmicks” practicality. She charges a standard fee based on a combination of hourly rates and/or a percentage of construction costs, which clients consider a worthy investment. The finished work is considered impeccable, and priced relatively under market. Berry’s fastidious work ethic and natural grace earn her the respect of clients and colleagues alike.

Representative Client Comments:
"Kitty is personable and very talented." “Marvelous contemporary architect with a sensitivity to lighting, creating a sense of space.” "She develops excellent client relationships." "Understands what is appropriate in each setting." "She agonizes over details, in a good way." “Of course I have her update the decor every now and then, but otherwise my home has stood the test of time." "Kitty has a good sense of reality, especially when it comes to New York City and its hindrances related to time and space." “Practically a visionary: she understands the limits and restraints of the land.” “Very practical, oversees everything, always prepared.” “A leader but also a team player.” “We are all happy campers.”
