We hired Brian as our architect for a new house project in 2007. We had demolished our old house rather than renovate, the first piece of good advice Brian gave us. From there we were able to work with Brian to build the house we really wanted. Since we all have different personal goals and tastes, we were impressed with how Brian truly listened to what we wanted, as well as directed us to what was “needed” to achieve the result. Throughout the project, he realistically respected our budget. We could not have been happier with the final project.
Brian has an excellent eye for aesthetics and function, and was able to blend both into what we hoped for. We were keen on hiring an architect for this reason. He has a keen eye for the use of natural light and functional space. He has a “soft touch” approach to getting clients to understand his vision while appreciating theirs. He was never too busy to discuss and address our questions or ideas.
When choosing our builders, Brian was also instrumental in our final decision. He recommended talented builders who specialize in custom homes, and who were also a pleasure to work with.
We had expected the construction of our new home (which also involved some significant structural landscaping) to be a stressful experience, but Brian and Darryl (our builder) worked so well as a team that the project was enjoyable.
We love our home, and still see different lines and effects from the work he envisioned, whether it be the woodwork, the stonework, lighting, etc.
We would highly recommend Brian Morris (architect) to anyone planning their dream home. He delivered to us, hands down!
