FR Review:
Working with Haverson means you'll get "heavy principal involvement from initial design through construction administration"--an attribute hailed by clients. We're told the design process is highly interactive between architect and client, with Jay Haverson himself actively encouraging a collaborative environment. Most of the firm's fifteen annual projects are highly customized traditional designs with a slight contemporary flair in terms of color, lighting and materials. Clients say the staff is always accessible with a simple phone call.

Jay Haverson, a graduate of Columbia and Syracuse, started the firm in 1993 after ten years as a principal in a New York City firm. He and wife Carolyn, a graduate of Syracuse and Parsons, are principals. Carolyn Haverson leads the firm's graphic design services, which is offered both in collaboration with the architecture or completely independently. Interior design is billed out hourly with no markup on product. Clients say they appreciate the emphasis placed on the seamless integration of exterior and interior design. For those who are building a home as an investment to eventually be sold, Haverson is a good match--we're told the firm designs with the foresight of resale value and aesthetic beauty.

Haverson Architecture and Design takes on projects starting with $200,000 construction budgets and averaging $1 million to $2 million. The firm works mainly in the Greenwich/New Canaan and Northern Westchester areas and also in the Hamptons. Haverson charges a slightly lower fee based on a fixed fee or a percentage of construction costs.

Representative Client Comments:
"Jay is just an excellent, calming, confident, positive and encouraging person." "Just the right combination of personality and talent." "He's always negotiating on our behalf--and was very sensitive to my budget." "They're quite the dynamic duo. He's an astounding architect and she's a powerhouse designer and artist." "He saved us from a complete nervous breakdown." "It was a real mutt of a house and he turned it into something that is just beautiful without being grandiose." "Jay watched over our nightmare-of-a-contractor like a hawk."
