My family and I have lived in our 1850 antique farmhouse for 23 years and I have dreamt of renovating the kitchen since day one. Our existing kitchen is very long and narrow so we need an addition to accommodate a kitchen island. Since I'm an interior designer, I designed the kitchen layout and interior space. However, I needed help with the exterior so that the addition would keep to the original character of the house. A friend recommended Mike and he quickly proposed four hand-sketched exterior options (a sign of a true designer). All were great options and the design that my family and I chose blends beautifully with our understated, humble farmhouse. Mike totally nailed it! He had great input and recommendations for the kitchen interior as well. In addition to being a talented architect, Mike is responsive, easy to work with, and truly cares about his clients and projects. Our project will start in the spring of 2023, and I know Mike will be there should we have any questions during the construction process. We are greatly appreciative and highly recommend!Read More

Michael LoBuglio is not just a great architect, he is also a very effective problem solver. While our initial plans for a simple addition and light renovation were impacted by the condition of the property, Michael was unfazed and managed to incorporate our wish list working as much as possible with the existing structure and keeping with the style of the original design. We found Michael to be very responsive to our wishes but also guiding us in the right direction when needed. With his vast experience, he presented us with multiple design options and thoughtfully explained the pros and cons of each alternative. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Michael as he is not only a consummate professional but also very personable and easy to work with. We felt that he truly cared about our project and would highly recommend him. AKRead More

I hired Mike on the strength of the designs I saw here on Houzz and on the mile-long list of stellar reviews he has received. In a nutshell, Mike deserves all of the 5 star reviews and more. During our first conversation, I was struck by his kindness and his ability to listen. His drawings were clear and inventive, while incorporating what we had discussed. Working entirely remotely, he was able to offer a concrete vision for an extensive renovation of my home. He designed a new kitchen, a new master bath, and many changes to the exterior of our home. I have never worked with an architect before and I had my reservations, Mike has forever dispelled them. I will contact him for all future projects that we have.Read More

We hired Michael LoBuglio to create architectural plans for our in-home theater, rec area, wet bar, and powder room within a 900 sq foot unfinished space. There were challenges to raise the ceiling level as well as multiple floor levels; the space required steps up to the powder room and steps down within the theater area. He was wonderful to work with and understood our needs perfectly. He also was instrumental in adding new ideas that were better than what we had envisioned. He made the best use of the space possible and we are extremely pleased with the results. He always arrived on-time with a smile and he finished the work in a timely fashion for a reasonable price. We cannot recommend Michael LoBuglio enough!!Read More

I had an image of the sizable addition to my home and Michael was able to translate it into actual plans with details I had not considered. He worked with various Town committees to rush the plans through the approval process, and the contractor and his crew have been able to follow his plans exactly. I have had experience with other architects who designed homes with outlandish design elements and impractical use of space. Michael took the time to understand what I wanted and worked with me to design it according to my ideas and even beyond expectations. He took the time to educate me on a better method and traffic pattern for the space I had. He kept the design geometrically balanced and in the same fashion as the rest of the house. He is a true professional and also a really nice human being. I highly recommend Michael LoBuglio.

My wife and I purchased a home in New Canaan, Ct in February. It was our first large scale renovation; we blew out walls, redid the kitchen, foyer and 3 bathrooms. This was our first time doing something like this and we were so grateful to have worked with Mike. The end result was far beyond our highest expectation and the process of working with him was also top notch. The attributes that stand out about Mike are thoughtful, responsive, caring and diligent. He really took the time to understand our families needs and conceptualized several options, allowing us to thoughtfully chose what layout would be best. He also took it upon himself to ensure that the detailed vision was correct as the build was happening. Mike is fabulous at his job and is genuinely a good person to have in your corner during an undertaking like this.Read More

We were looking for an architect who could help us with a large addition project to our Idyllic 1933 New England farmhouse. It was essential that we find someone who could work with us to create the right personal living space and also seamlessly integrate the addition into the existing home. Another challenge was the importance of the addition blending in with the lavish garden setting with expansive landscaping. Finally, we needed someone who would bring not only expertise and a point of view, but would be willing to work collaboratively with us as we brought ideas to the project. Fortunately we found all of that in Mike! We couldn’t be happier with our wonderful addition. What’s also exciting is that visitors regularly comment not only on the beauty of the space but on how it looks as though it’s always been here. We highly recommend Mike!Read More

Found Mike on Houzz and interviewed him along with 2 other architects. Mike’s prior work speaks for itself but deal closer for me was his honesty on cost and patients with many changes. My wife and I had little vision for the project before sitting down with Mike and finished the process with a plan we both love.Read More

We had a great experience working with Mike and highly recommend him. We decided to buy a home in Greenwich that needed a re-working of the first floor layout to make it more functional for our family. We were impressed with Mike's responsiveness (he would get back to us almost immediately at any time of day and on weekends), quick turnaround time, and his willingness to work around our schedule and meet with us in person on weekends. We were absolutely convinced before meeting with Mike that some structural walls would have to come down in the first floor to fit our vision. Mike was able to convince us that in fact those walls did not need to come down and that we could work around them with a functional design. His plans ended up saving us a lot of money on structural beams. We felt like he really listened to what we wanted and delivered a design that was functional and cost effective. On top of that, his pricing was super reasonable and the value he brought was significantly more than his fee. Overall Mike is professional, easy to work with, responsive/accommodating, and he's well worth the cost. We were so glad we decided to work with him.Read More
