What clients say about Archie Crow's custom home designs and home renovations
Archie did a wonderful job designing a perfect home to fit our needs. His attention to detail and use of space is unmatched. He is very experienced and able to communicate clearly not only with the homeowner but the builder and other parties involved, such as the Riverhills design review committee. This made the whole process much easier. Now that we have moved in I can honestly say there is nothing I would change in the design of the house. We loved working with Archie and would highly recommend him.

Archie Crow came highly recommend to me from several friends that had used him as their architect. From start to finish it was nothing short of perfection. We had a couple of meetings to discuss my ideas and to study the site where I would build my home. From there, he took over.
The orientation and relationship of each room, as well as the open views to the yard, were well thought out. The house has a wonderful flow throughout with no wasted space. The way the natural light sparkles in through the abundance of well placed windows is almost magical. Storage closets are placed in all the right spots and the pantry has everything.
I have a wooded back yard that slopes to several levels. Archie was able to use that to his advantage and created multiple outdoor living spaces that blend seamlessly into the terrain. I am so glad that I chose Archie Crow as the architect for my dream home.

It has always been my privilege to recommend Archie Crow, and the high level architectural services he provides, to others. Two generations of the Reilly Family have benefitted from being his client and we are all most appreciative of the excellent work we ALWAYS receive from Archie Crow. We wish Archie continued luck and success and look forward to working with him again.

We own one of the first homes built on Simondale Drive in Fort Worth from the late 1930's. We asked numerous friends for suggestions for an architect and one name kept surfacing over and over: Archie Crow. Even more importantly, several of our friends who had hired him were very exacting, so we knew if they were happy with him, we would be.
Archie designed a substantial addition to our house and also redesigned half of the first floor of the existing house. When we decided to enlarge our house, our top priority was that it not look like an "add-on". We wanted the addition to blend in seamlessly to the existing structure. And it does indeed do exactly that.
Archie told us approximately how long he thought it would take to go through the design process, and he gave us a range of the approximate architectural fee. He adhered to both the time line and the fee...which was very important to us.
We are now in the construction phase, and we decided to hire Archie to oversee the process, and he has been invaluable. He is a true professional and is both creative and yet practical at the same time. We could not have made a better choice.

Pleased accept our enthusiastic referral to Archie Crow, Architect. We could not be more pleased with the attention Archie gave to every detail in the design of our "Carriage House". We live in a historic Southside neighborhood in Fort Worth and our home was originally built in 1923. Our request to preserve the architectural integrity of our property was respected at every turn. The garage space has all the functionality we desired, and the living quarters feel like an extension of the main house. Archie made practical use of all available space and offered many innovative thoughts as our plans evolved. From our very primitive set of ideas, he was able to develop a magnificent and beautiful structure. Accolades continue to roll in from our neighbors and guests.
Please give Archie Crow your every consideration as you begin your new home or addition. We are sure you will be most proud of the end result.

From our first meeting, Archie was notably professional and projected confidence in his knowledge and skills. Archie's systematic approach with checks and lists left nothing unexplored and helped us realize our needs and desires in our future home. He valued our time and kept our meetings appropriately brief without sacrificing thoroughness and understanding. We had several unexpected deadlines and he graciously accommodated those, even though some deadlines fell during Christmas and New Year holidays.
Archie came highly recommended from several realtors, but what it was an unexpected bonus that the builders we interviewed commented on how well Archie's designs work. Our confidence in him was confirmed by the people who turn his ideas into reality.
Building a new home can be a daunting process, but the first phase went smoothly with Archie's ability to problem solve supported by his many years of experience and demonstrated skills. We will recommend his work to anyone beginning the building process.

Just wanted to write you a quick note to say thanks for a great job. It was a pleasure working with you. You listened to every want and need I had and you were able to translate those wishes to paper. You were so thorough that I didn't deviate from the original plans you designed. Many thanks.

Lisa and I are very happy with the work you did on the renovation of our home. We have mentioned your firm to our friends who have asked and we will continue to promote your services. We moved back in to our home in November and would love to have you stop by soon.
As you may remember, Lisa toured a home in Fort Worth that had been renovated and remodeled. She inquired of the owner who the architect was and found out it was your firm. And as they say, "the rest is history."
When you came out to our home the first time we purposefully didn't tell you all our ideas because we wanted a fresh take on the possibilities. That paid off because your creative eye added much more than we were planning. The feature that comes to mind is the upstairs balcony that overlooks our pool. More than creative inspiration, your kindness, professionalism and timeliness was much appreciated.
Anyone desiring to remodel or renovate their home would do themselves well by selecting you as their architect.
