    We engaged Cathy Svercl as our architecture manager for our whole lake Florida house remodeling project. Her deep understanding of "green" innovations and aging in place designs were exceptional. Her commitment to every detail and professional interaction with the contractor as our personal representative during the one year project resulted in a one of a kind picturesque lakefront home design.

About this pro

Our clients focus on green or energy efficient projects - homeowners who want to save money and think long term. They subscribe to the thought that bigger is not necessarily better; that quality wins over quantity every time. And our clients plan on staying in their home for a long time, with low maintenance, durability, and one level living integrated into every design. Every project is different, but every project is a puzzle. My job is to figure out what is needed, what is wanted, and the best possible way to get there. We like to listen to the clients, weigh all the options, and bring out the best ideas. If we figure things out carefully at each step, the end product will go together more smoothly, and seem to be the best and only solution to the problem.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      We provide a Design Fees Menu which describes our services and fees. A full Proposal is sent after the initial meeting at your home, which allows us to review the existing conditions and requirements of the project.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Architects are required to take courses on Health, Safety, and Welfare, including Advanced Building Code courses. We learn about new products and techniques, and review good design and building practices. We also take courses, attend seminars, and go to conferences to keep up with green products and techniques.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      In 6th grade, we had a project about what we would do with our lives. We made a timeline of our future lives, wrote our obituaries, and designed our dream homes. I designed one, then just kept designing more. I knew I wanted to be a residential architect then, and 20 years later, it's still what I love to do.
