Architecture – The Art of Living Comfortably
Architecture. The breathtaking crossroads of art, science and engineering. Architecture provides us with form, function, and inspiration on a daily basis. It can set a mood — subtly looming in the horizon or through gaudy displays of metal and glass. It can convey the energy of an entire city — from Chicago’s monoliths of brick and steel to the sun-soaked awnings of New Orleans.
But beyond its artistic sensibilities, architecture plants its roots in function. Architecture, without an eye for function, is simply art. It’s difficult to truly appreciate architecture to its fullest without inhabiting the space and observing first-hand the nuance and finesse that went into the design.
Architecture is the art of living comfortably.
The Science Behind the Art
Without the careful use of the latest technologies, architecture would be trapped in time, unable to advance through innovation. New materials and processes are driving an architectural evolution. Solar and sustainable architecture are no longer viewed as “fads” but as standards we must maintain in order to be effective stewards of a healthier tomorrow.
The successful architect is one who is willing to wear many hats — the leader, the interpreter, the decision-maker, and the negotiator. The environmentalist is a hat we at Neri Architects wear with pride and an unwavering sense of duty. Our architectural practices are as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. We are always happy to accommodate those seeking green solutions in their next architecture and design project.
Neri Architects did a fabulous job designing an addition to our house. They did come out to the site few times and we held few design sessions in their office to ensure every design detail was addressed and agreed on - this resulted in a smooth execution of the project with virtually no changes. The Neri team was very easy to work with and delivered an outstanding design that literally turns heads of people walking or driving by. Neri Architects has listened to us and designed the addition to our ranch that resulted in a beautiful house with a Craftsman/Frank Lloyd Wright design style hints throughout. We are extremely happy with the architect choice and definitely recommend them.
Guido is a creative, reputable and experienced architect who is extremely knowledgeable and dependable. His work ethic and integrity are outstanding. Neri Architects' entire staff is dedicated and provides exceptional customer service. I would strongly recommend Neri Architects for architectural services.
Neri Architects were very pleasant to work with and extremely knowledgeable of local building ordinances and developed multiple floor plans providing us excellent options that closely met our goals. Michi Mho and staff were very pleasant to work with and thoroughly investigated all options and layouts working through the constraints of our local ordinances. We were very happy with the final design.
Very helpful as I was using an architect for the first time.
Architects and staff are very pleasant and knowledgeable. Our architect has provided very good recommendations and excellent service so far (we are in the middle of a home addition)
Great architect, great team, highly recommended.
Neri Companies was a perfect match for us. We are building in Panama and the owner and lead Architect traveled to Panama with me for the site plan. The lead architect is also bilingual and he played a significant role with our builder.I appreciate their patience and advice as to what material to use with our design.
My husband and I were considering taking on a home addition project. We did some basic sketches ourselves and began looking for a builder. We ran into many stumbling blocks. Builders did not call back and were unable to tell us if our project would be within our budget. It seemed as though they could not see our vision or understand how to meet our needs. Neri Architects cleared all of those issues. They saw our visions, heard our needs and designed the plans. They have been from the very first call extremely professional, prompt and accommodating to all our request and may I also add very effordible. Their entire staff are helpful and the environment is cheerful. It is clear they enjoy what they do and are definitely a service company.
It was a pleasure working with Neri and Michael. They came up with wonderful design. Worked patiently with us, made all the changes we requested. Very professional.
