Nick Buccalo worked with us on a gut-renovation of our Brooklyn townhouse. Several years on and we are still very satisfied with the services Nick provided. He was conscientious, trustworthy and dedicated to getting it right.Nov 8, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I believe in charging clients reasonable prices for what service they are receiving. I never charge to order furniture or other materials as I find that unethical (I am not a retail store) as many other Architects and Interior Designers do, but instead look at what is being provided to a client and charge appropriately. For instance a drafts person would be billed to a client at a much lower rate than a designer who's skill is relied on to inform the draftsperson.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Not formal courses, but we are constantly up on with are the latest products and techniques available, and many of them we reject for a variety of reasons like quality, longevity, etc., and we are always being inventive in many aspects of building design and construction techniques, things that current courses do not teach.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I knew I would become an Architect when I was in third grade and after some consideration, and love for drawing floor plans to help me discover what spaces were inside a building, understood that it was the spark in my life. I have a great appreciation for the history of architecture and art and have lectured on those topics before. The love of creating places that people can be a part of is a very exciting notion to me, leaving me with the hard part of finding clients with open minds who have a desire to be a part of building something great as well.
