FR Review:
Modernist style that professionals describe as "highly intellectual,"is the aesthetic hallmark of Shafer Architects. Clients say the firm provides them with exceptional personal service, particularly from Tom Shafer, sole principal of the firm. Shafer is also lauded by insiders for his ability to take control of a project to ensure that budgets and deadlines are closely met. Together, these qualities make Shafer a highly sought-after firm. The firm specializes in large renovations and additions, with nearly all of it's work residential. Clients say Shafer has "impeccable taste"and a keen eye for detail.

The six-member team splits its portfolio between the city and the suburbs and occasionally takes on out-of-state projects. Its pricing is said to be standard. Fees for new construction are based on a percentage of total costs, and renovations and additions are billed on an hourly rate. Insiders tell us that Shafer's own home is the quintessential example of the firm's expertise in modernist design.

Representative Client Comments:
"Tom has great imagination and foresight." "His use of materials is really quite innovative." "Very knowledgeable on specialty products." "Tom has the highest integrity." "We are satisfied clients in every possible aspect." "Very accurate timing and delivered exactly on budget."
