Services & Specialties
Clean, Classic Residential Architecture

FR Review:
Known for her understated, upscale "Park Avenue look," Julie Kalberer is lauded for her managerial skills as well as her architectural talents. "If anyone could help you enjoy the process of home renovation, it would be Julie," says an enthusiastic client. Sources suggest that homeowners looking for clean, traditional, classic elegance couldn't do better than to hire this architecture firm. The four-person practice is known for skilled execution and excellent attention to detail, and for its cost-effective and budget-conscious designs. Focusing exclusively on the residential market, half of the work is Manhattan-based apartments and the rest is on homes across the country (Watch Hill, Millbrook, Charleston, Seattle).

This widely published architect received her M.Arch. from Columbia University. She then trained with Peter Pennoyer before creating her own firm in 1990. Clients laud Kalberer for her lively, energetic, and outgoing personality as well as her strong background in preservation. Both contractors and prominent local architects praise her "flawless drawings" and recognize her work as being of the highest caliber.

Fees are somewhat lower than the standard range, and clients report that she is excellent about offering a wide range of aesthetic and budget choices. Projects range from mid-sized to large residences. Clients deem the firm to be very reasonably priced, with a few wondering if the firm actually charges enough.

Representative Client Comments:
"Julie has a wonderful eye and gives practical advice, while always being professional, diligent and reliable." "Julie was able to keep the spirit of the-turn-of-the-century building in bringing my apartment up to the year 2000." "Came up with an innovative layout that both optimized the space and addressed the expense and timing constraints." "They know how to produce complete and accurate drawings." "Always responsive to the questions, needs, and anxieties any project in New York entails." "Very reliable and predictable." "Has a realistic budget and sticks to it." "Conscientious and honest." "Great project management. Julie knows how to get things expedited."
