marin-modernProject: West Marin Modern

Statement:

“Starting with 1500 square foot remodel of main level with kitchen, living room, dining room, bathroom and study, Couture Architecture took our 3-story, high-end redwood country house from the 1980’s and did a sophisticated, ultra modern remodel. Scott pushed creativity far beyond what I had originally imagined. He is one step above a modern architect. The lines are sleek and move smoothly from one room to the next. He was a pleasure to work with. Honest with his assessments. Scott knows how to work within a budget. We are looking forward to doing our next project with him.”

testimonial-1Project: Vineyard

Statement:

“Before he became our architect, Scott was simply our friend. As an amateur architect, I always picked Scott’s brain for ideas, which led to lively discussions about style and design. When we were fortunate enough to purchase a turn of the century house that felt and looked all of 100 hundred years old, there was only one person we turned to. I handed Scott my napkin drawings, and what appeared shortly thereafter was an extraordinary and intricate plan. Scott’s understanding of our needs – both utility and aesthetic – was exact. I am biased, but I can attest that our home is the most beautiful and functional in all the area. Scott followed the fundamentals of the initial design and then expounded with captivating details. Scott is a detailed oriented individual, and the results show. He is also very professional in manner and scope. Scott referred and integrated other professionals such that the entire process was cohesive from an engineering and landscape perspective. We feel very lucky that Scott masterminded our project from start to finish. We have our dream home. Thank you to our friend Scott and his associates at Couture Architecture.”
-Tom & Sheryl M.


testimonial-2Project: Fern Lane

Statement:

“I feel very strongly about the wonderful work Scott provided when he worked on our renovation project. Quickly he figured out what my wife and I were looking for and often the process moved quicker then I would have ever imagined as he seemed to be reading our minds on choices ranging from color of bathroom tiles to styles of fencing. Scott is rightly very proud of his work and his deliberate work style and detail to attention make him unique – but most important – he is very talented and humble (and charming!) Scott would often check back with us once the project was complete and to this day we consider him a friend and will most definitely use him on future projects.”
-Micha Berman & Charol Morikawa

 


testimonial-5Project: Laurel Creek

Statement:

“My wife and I have worked with Scott on a couple of different projects. The largest one was to replace our deck. Scott has a wonderful modern aesthetic, and a great eye for applying his aesthetic to turn around the ho-hum into something special. He transformed a basic deck and difficult to use yard to a wonderful outdoor extension of our living space, and made the street visible portion something that significantly improved to the look of our home. People who walk by our house often stop to comment on how much they love the changes. Scott achieves his design by managing all parts of the project and paying close attention to all the details. He hires talented people to do the work and he is excellent at working with the city to get all the paperwork and approvals in place. A major plus for getting the job done.”
-Michelle M & Larry B
