TESTIMONIALS

Michael knows his craft. He was originally recommended to me by a prominent musician friend, who was himself an architect at one time. Michael worked with us to sketch out anything we could dream up really. He has a wide variety of styles and abilities. Eventually, the modern cost of renovation combined with our age made us scale back the project that we had in mind, to something much more practical from our living standpoint, giving us a lot of great new options for entertaining larger groups of people, while downsizing the maintenance, and maintaining the full function of my recording studio, (as i am still active in making music). Michael's plans were detailed, structurally sound, and clear to the workers implementing them. When there was a question, Michael was quick to respond to them and resolve any questions that they had. The project went up flawlessly from a design and an implementation standpoint. The cost was in line with costs today. Michael is also a really nice person who is easy to work with. I highly recommend working with Michael LoBuglio for architectural needs.Read More

Mike was great to work with and we were extremely happy with how the drawings came out for our addition. He went above and beyond working with us and sending various layout options to ensure that we had the best layout possible. We are very excited to see his drawings come to life and would highly recommend him for anyone looking for an architect.Read More

Mike, thank you so much for the transformation of our Oxford, CT. home. When I blindly reached out to you at the last minute from New Hampshire in late January of 2021, during COVID, to see if you could possibly meet Tim at a last minute showing of a 1977 relic of a house to discuss the possibility of transforming it into a home, it was a true blessing. With your advice in hand, we took a leap of faith to start the year long journey to renovate this house into an amazingly comfortable, modernized home that we truly value each day. You immediately had recommendations to share over the phone with me. Since I only had the photos from the listing to dream from, you were my eyes and my measuring tape. You were patient and kind and considered all my concerns and ideas. Mike, your emailed, hand drawn renderings were such a vision to work with each time we spoke. I truly valued your opinion and suggestions as you did mine. We created a gorgeous gourmet kitchen, a beautiful bathroom, and a master bedroom, complete with his and her closets. We also moved stairs to create a living space upstairs and a very functional entry area from the garage that provided ample overflow storage, closet space, and a bathroom. The basement layout truly transformed the space into a winter escape for us. Your professionalism and kind spirit were a joy to work with and we still value your friendship to this day.Read More

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write a glowing review for Michael LoBuglio, an amazing residential architect I have had the pleasure of working with for nearly two decades. This talented architect has been the creative mind behind not one, but two major renovation projects for my home in Westport, CT, and most recently, he designed my dream home in Watch Hill, RI. Michael delivers visions and plans that are 5-star designs at below-market prices. From the very beginning of our professional relationship, it was clear that this architect possessed an extraordinary vision for transforming spaces and an innate ability to capture the essence of my ideas. What truly sets him apart is his ability to seamlessly blend modern aesthetics with traditional design foundations. This unique skill is exemplified in the masterpiece he created in Watch Hill, a gambrel Nantucket-style home with a contemporary twist. The Westport projects were no small feat, requiring meticulous attention to detail and a deep understanding of the existing structure. In both instances, Michael demonstrated his unparalleled expertise in seamlessly integrating the new with the old, maintaining the character of the house while adding modern functionality. The end results were nothing short of remarkable. The flow of the space, the play of natural light, and the harmony between the interior and the surroundings were impeccable. However, it was the project in Watch Hill that truly showcased his ability to turn dreams into reality. The design he delivered exceeded all expectations. The Nantucket-style exterior exuded timeless charm and elegance, while the interior was a true reflection of our modern lifestyle needs. The open floor plan, the sleek lines, and the use of cutting-edge materials were precisely what we had envisioned. It's a home that not only caters to our daily lives but also serves as a work of art in itself. What truly sets this architect apart is his commitment to the client's vision and his unwavering dedication to excellence. His attention to detail is unparalleled, and he is a master of blending functionality and aesthetics. Throughout the entire process, he was always accessible, communicative, and open to our input. His ability to transform our ideas and feedback into tangible design elements was truly remarkable. If you are seeking a residential architect who can turn your vision into reality and exceed your expectations, I wholeheartedly recommend this architect without reservation.
