FR Review:
Incredible attention to detail and superb communication skills are highlights of the praise that is bestowed upon Florian Architects by former and current clients. While the firm's design style is highly contemporary, it adapts a sensitivity to contemporary with other styles. Principal Paul Florian is pegged as a confident and assertive architect who possesses superior communications skills. He is a fellow of the American Institute of Architects and was named one of the World's Foremost Architects by Architectural Digest in 1991. The firm's projects have received numerous awards, including a National Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects. While Florian designs many large spaces, he continues to delight clients by "expressing more with less" in both large and small environments.

Florian, one of three principals of the firm, holds degrees from Washington University, the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London and a M.A. from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Florian created his own firm 15 years ago, and previously served as president of Florian Wierzbowski. Thomas Bassett-Dilley, Isaac Eun and Robert Sellars are also principals of this 10-person firm, which is highly sought for large single-family new home construction. The firm will not hesitate to become involved with smaller projects, especially interesting and challenging endeavors. Clients applaud the principals' accessibility and their respect for communications and budgetary issues.

Florian's fees fall in line with those of other high-end architectural firms. The scope of a project is laid out at its inception, and a fixed fee is calculated, based on the services required to see it to completion. Clients say that while Florian is sensitive to budgetary needs, the firm remains committed to the highest quality end-product. The firm comes highly recommended and can boast of many happy repeat clients who cite an appreciation for Florian's candor and responsiveness to their feedback.

Representative Client Comments:
"Their strength is that they're able to accommodate different styles." "Very good at listening to my ideas and incorporating what was important." "If there were problems, they would let it be known.""They pay extraordinary attention to detail." "Budgets increased, but it was easy to talk to them about it." "Paul's strength is his creativity."
