FR Review:
This firm, led by Lisa Jaffe, is finding its way onto many people's short lists because of its tireless pursuit of intelligent residential design that marries functionality, practicality and aesthetics. While its design philosophy is based in contemporary style, the firm's work leans more toward the warm, contextual side of contemporary rather than to minimalism. Because these practitioners are committed to serving every client's needs, however, they excel in a range of styles. Commended for their passion for architecture, Jaffe and Pruchno create projects that are "architecturally significant" in design and style while also making budgetary sense. Whether the firm is working for a young couple with a limited budget, or for a large, established family on the North Shore where the sky's the limit, we hear it translates its clients' visions into reality through careful selection of materials and finishes. Many clients acknowledged that once they got to know this team of "remarkable" and "incredibly devoted professionals," they wanted the architects involved in every decision for the rest of the project, from custom hardware to landscape, furnishings, audio/video equipment and lighting design.

This progressive firm has been seeking to elevate the everyday living of its residential clients since 1997. Jaffe received her M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania where she concentrated on the theoretical aspects of design. Lawrence received her M.A. from the University of Michigan. With no real minimum, the firm charges standard architectural fees for its services. Some clients say they feel that the high level of attention they received from this firm actually merited more than the company charged.

Representative Client Comments:
"Lisa and Marcia will go the extra mile every time." "You do not see architects on the site measuring to the nth detail like these two." "Their strength is being able to design and envision." "My new home is warm and inviting. It just flows beautifully—you feel good when you walk in the space.”
