FR Review:
Steve Rugo pays meticulous attention to detail and personally oversees every large project his firm takes on, earning praise from clients and interior designers alike. Moreover, Rugo is said to readily embrace the input and ideas of clients on the belief that the style of a building and its spaces should reflect the personality and personal taste of its inhabitants. The firm is not devoted to any particular architectural style. Industry insiders tell us that Rugo is a friendly, yet confident architect who pursues high and consistent quality and who has earned the loyalty and respect of his clients.

Rugo is the senior architect of this 10-person firm, which handles predominantly residential projects. Its services are split equally among some of the most prestigious neighborhoods in the city, as well as the suburbs and out-of-state locations. The types of projects in the firm's portfolio strike a balance between new construction of homes in the 10,000-square-foot range, residential rehabs of similar size, and apartment and townhouse renovations. Each year, the firm typically takes on from 10 to 15 active projects, each of which lasts for up to three years.

Rugo-Raff charges hourly fees that are a little less pricey than those of other big-name architects in the area. Yet we are told the lower pricing comes at no sacrifice to quality, which many say is top-notch, and personalized service, considered first-rate. The firm has a devoted following with many return customers, including one client that enlisted Rugo's services for three homes.

Representative Client Comments:
"Steve is a true gentleman and understands the meaning of a classic, timeless, multi-generational design.""He is the guy to use for those in the know to achieve that 'just so' look of gentility.""Not an innovator, but a really decent guy who delivers a consistent product.""Not only would I love to use him again, but I'd love for him to be my dinner partner.?
