FR Review:
Known by clients as excellent problem solvers with a heightened awareness of budgetary concerns, Becker Architects is especially noted for its expertise in home rehabilitation and additions. We hear the firm also does numerous historical preservation projects, but is not a group of strict preservationists. Clients applaud the firm's ability to meld the old with the new, matching scale and style in projects where historical residences must remain true to form, yet receive updated amenities.

Becker's supporters say the firm's style is "rational, straightforward and classic." Clients say they choose Becker for the firm's expertise in making improvements or additions to historically significant homes, essentially allowing the aesthetic history "to repeat itself" while adding tasteful and functional touches. Approximately 60 percent of the firm's work is residential, with most projects on the North Shore. Led by principals Richard and Nancy Becker, the firm has been in business for 22 years and employs ten. Both principals were educated at Syracuse University.

Becker Architects charges standard architectural percentage rates or a fixed fee, and its services come highly recommended. The firm's work has been featured in such magazines as Traditional Home, Better Homes and Gardens and Shelter Interiors Magazine.

Representative Client Comments:
"Budgets were easy to discuss and he paid good attention to those budgets." "The work is so impressive." "Whenever there was an issue, they found someone to fix it quickly and efficiently."
