We use Full Circle Architects for everything. And without fail, each and every time they have been outstanding to deal with. FCA is nice to work with, have great taste, creative ideas and are cost conscious to go with it. Additionally, they always ask about the lifestyle of the space so that appropriate finishes and color choices are used.
Some of the projects they have done for us included combining two condos together on Sheridan Road in Chicago and transforming a “shack” we purchased in Sawyer, Michigan into a beautiful summer home. In our Michigan home, they brilliantly added space for a dining room by changing the steps that lead to the basement which were formerly just off the kitchen to another part of the house.
They designed and decorated the office space for our business which is an accounting firm located in downtown Chicago. When we moved our offices, we called in Full Circle Architects again, and they did another fantastic job in making our office look beautiful.
We have been working with Full Circle Architects for thirteen years and we wouldn’t even consider using anyone else because we feel they are so outstanding.”

“I am happy to write this note to tell you how satisfied we were with every aspect of the work Full Circle Architects did for us. Even though the work was completed about three years ago, we still look around and marvel at how beautiful our home is. Your creativity, most of all, in redesigning our kitchen was nothing short of brilliant. Not only do we have so much room now, but the kitchen is so much more functional than we ever imagined it could be. We like nothing more than sitting at the table and looking through the large windows of the doors onto the patio, no matter what the season. You were with us every step of the way from finding a good contractor to helping us choose even the smallest items to fit into the overall scheme.
I should also mention the bathrooms. Now that we are empty nesters we each wanted our own bathroom and each of us had different ideas. Again we both got exactly what we wanted, because you gave us generously of both your time and talent. You read our thoughts so well and helped us focus on what we really wanted in the context of our budget.
Your expertise made our dreams a reality, not only because you are talented architects but also because you were always there when we needed you with a calming voice and encouraging words. We are happy for this opportunity to write this letter on your behalf as well as to have the opportunity to thank you once more for a job well done.”

“We respect and appreciate the professionalism of Full Circle Architects–so much so that we have used them 3 times! In turn, they have created beautiful, usable, living space that enhances our lifestyle and respected our budget from the start. When you work with Full Circle Architects–you can feel good about your investment, and assured that your needs, wants and budget will be their first priority.”

“We were so happy with the beautiful master suite addition Full Circle designed for us, we hired them again several years later to design a screened-in patio addition to our home. Both additions blend in seamlessly to the rest of the house and have become everyone’s favorite rooms. For both projects, Full Circle really listened to what we said, designed beautiful and functional new spaces, and most importantly, created designs that fit within our stated budgets. We recently hired them for a third time to re-design the front entrance and walkway to our home, and once again they did a magnificent job!”

“The screen porch that Full Circle Architects designed for us is our favorite room of the house — and the one most commented upon by visitors. The project was completed on time, with minimum intrusion, and with exquisite attention to our aspirations for the space. Each year we look forward to the beginning of spring so we can enjoy the peace and beauty of our porch. Working with FCA was an absolute pleasure!”

“We knew our kitchen was too small for our life style, but we could not decide if we should put on an addition or expand the existing kitchen into the family room and make the living room into the new family room. Moving was not an option as we love our neighborhood and the rest of our home. FCA came to our home and listened to our needs and provided us with constructive feedback and helped us understand the pros and cons of our options.
Once we decided to go with the addition, as opposed to expanding into the family room, we had a pretty good idea as to what we wanted. They came up with a beautiful plan that incorporated both creative and practical suggestions to our idea that made the design concept more functional. It really feels as though it has always been this way. There is not a person who enters our home that does not complement us on our new kitchen.
It was great having FCA involved from the beginning. There were times when we panicked as to whether or not we were making the right choices, but their confidence in what they were doing always pulled us through. Now, we are totally satisfied with the design and functionality of our kitchen addition.”

“We went to FCA with a desire to expand our existing space without changing the family feel of our home. They took the time to meet our kids, understand their needs and ours. They spoke with them about habits with book bags, shoes, needs in their new bath and then came to us with their plan. Kitchen wise, we took their initial thoughts and we adjusted from there. What we liked was the lack of ego and insistence on keeping to their ideas. We came up with a combined new kitchen that encompassed all our ideas and has created a perfect kitchen for us. There is nothing we would change after 3 and half years in the kitchen. The process was stress free and they were able to keep our excitement level high throughout the building.
Now that we are in and settled, our kids are extremely happy with their space and the kitchen has become the space we envisioned. We have created many fond meals, celebrations and memories all due to their creative effort.”

“I just wanted to tell you how much I love my new room. Every time I walk in I get a big smile on my face. And yes, the big fits perfectly. Sorry about the panic attack I had on that one! It really is everything I dreamed it would be. Ok, it was a little more complicated than just knocking down a wall and putting up a closet but worth every minute of it. Your design really fit all my needs and I thank you.”
