I highly recommend Madeleine. She is diligent and extremely organized. She took our ideas into consideration and continuously collaborated with us to help make our home's entry look just the way we wanted it to!

We bought a really terrible house—essentially derelict—on a beautiful property. Madeleine designed the major renovation that transformed that terrible house into the home we plan to live in for the rest of our lives. This included renovating some parts and demolishing and rebuilding others. Madeleine spent a lot of effort listening to us and working to accommodate both of our sets of wishes—not an easy task. She tried many possible designs—and persisted with envisioning different solutions until she had addressed every reservation we expressed. The final plan was approved in one day because Madeleine had attended to every detail. And that level of attention meant that we needed to make only very minor changes once the construction began. Madeleine teamed with me and our building contractor to monitor the construction and problem solve throughout the process. Again, Madeleine's attention to detail provided a high level of support and helped to keep the project moving on schedule. We moved in 51 weeks after closing on the house. We love it. I recommend Madeleine without reservation.

Madeleine Sanchez was hired to handle a house renovation and construction that would add a family room and kitchen to our quant old house. She worked on a variety of options for us based in our budget as well as dealing with our local historic review board. She was available for as little or as much project management that we needed. Her attention to details help us with this process and with dealing with our contractor. All went well on all accords! a BIG recommendation!
I hired Madeleine based on recommendations from several friends, and I am extremely happy I did!! I will definitely use her again. She has great taste, is a good listener, helped me with everything from the big picture to the small details. Her site reports are highly organized, detailed and timely, and proved to be very useful in documenting exactly what was communicated to and by the contractor and when. She was a fair and effective mediator between us and the contractor, was vigilant in ensuring the project continued to progress, and kept it within budget. I can not imagine doing this, or any, project without her!
"Hiring Madeleine has turned out to be the smartest investment we made when we set out to build our addition. We were adding a large master suite with the simultaneous goals of integrating two prior additions into a single framework and bringing a modern feeling to a traditional home. Madeleine brought her incredible design skills and dedication, guiding us towards a solution to meet every challenge that arose. She is incredibly well organized and meticulous, saving us time, energy and money by staying one step ahead of the project plan. The results are incredible – a warm and modern interior and a pulled together exterior that fits perfectly with the property."

"Madeleine Sanchez is not simply a world-class architect. She is a consummate professional who is an absolute pleasure to work with.
Madeleine brings a sophisticated, contemporary yet classic aesthetic to her work, and it is infused into every detail of the engagement, from overall spatial design to small details like hardware finishes. She is passionate about her work, and does not consider her job finished until both she and her client are thrilled about the result.
Equally important, she is one of the most organized people I've ever worked with, and has an ability to map out and execute a project with ease.
I would recommend Madeleine for any project large or small without reservation."
"I could not be happier with my addition designed by Madeleine Sanchez! She executed everything, down to the smallest detail, perfectly. I would definitely recommend her, and I plan to use her services again. She is easy to work with and translated my broad ideas into a beautiful end product that suits us perfectly!"
