FR Review:
Architect and accomplished sailor Page Goolrick designs with the utility, simplicity, and elegance of a streamlined yacht in mind. Her clients speak of homes where everything is shipshape: appliances fit perfectly into their cupboards, clothes fold neatly into drawers, and keys are never lost. Wherever possible, spaces serve double (if not triple) functions, making the most out of New York's close quarters. While the look--unbroken lines, wood with a natural finish, neutral tones--is certainly modern, Goolrick's designs are not cold or uninviting. Clients say she teases charm out of simple shapes, warmth out of natural light, and color out of open vistas. Many hire her to do an apartment, then, admiring the graceful efficiency she achieves, bring her to the office, or vice versa. In either setting, clients appreciate Goolrick's aggressive pursuit of perfection, from schematics to screws.

Goolrick opened her boutique firm in 1989, drawing on eight years of experience at various companies on both coasts. With a staff of three, she focuses on three to four projects at a time, most in New York and Connecticut, though Goolrick is also licensed in New Jersey and California. For new clients, budgets are generally in the vicinity of $500,000, with a standard markup on construction. Clients note that Goolrick's efficient designs usually have efficient budgets; prices are high, but nothing is wasted. They also praise her involvement on the job site, citing her rapport with subcontractors as the factor that makes everything go smoothly. Those seeking frills and excess ornamentation should go elsewhere, but even traditional interior designers like to bring Goolrick in as a space consultant, saying her mantra of “clean, clean, clean” is refreshing.

Representative Client Comments:
"Page approaches architecture logically and rationally and is obsessed with the way things work and fit." "I appreciate her refined eye and disdain for ornamentation and excess fluff." "Page provided an original and creative solution to awkward layout problems. As a result, I was able to sell the apartment for $50,000 over the asking price." "She's very focused, she hones in on what needs to be done and does it. Not for the wishy-washy." "Hire her for your interior design as well. Her architectural ideas are so specific, it's important to have her go all the way." "I am a designer and usually exhaust clients with exacting attention to all aspects of a job. Page does a thing I thought not possible: when working with me, she almost wore me out with the amount of care and attention she gave to the details." "Very strict about sticking to the budget." "After designing and managing the construction of my apartment she went on to do the same for my office, my in-laws' offices, their city apartment, their country home, my brother-in-law’s home, and the Manhattan and London homes of a close friend of mine. Everyone has good words to say about her."
