An Award Winning Home
Mr. Nott is a master at creating a silk purse from a sow’s ear. Our house was originally a non-descript stucco box which Tom converted into an award winning craftsman showplace and was featured on our cities home tour of significant historical restorations. I’ve since hired Tom on several commercial projects of which I am totally satisfied with the quality of architectural services provided by his firm.
From a Seasoned Developer
Over the years, as a contractor, developer, and financial consultant, I have been involved with over 100 architects and it is my opinion that Tom Nott is one of the best as evidenced by the fact that the last six projects I have built were designed by Mr. Nott. He is an expert in dealing with the various governmental agencies in order to obtain a building permit. I might also add that Mr. Nott does his own structural design and calculations which is very rare for most architects. This results in considerable cost savings especially as regards hillside construction.
Rebuilding a Craftsman
After a devastating fire destroyed much of our historic South Pasadena home, Tom Nott helped us redesign it in a way that restored and enhanced the historic beauty of the structure, while adding a few more modern features that make our house a warm and comfortable home for the whole family. Tom’s designs, color, and attention to detail combined for a beautiful result, and his experience and expertise were critical to the success of our project. Tom was consistently on time and on budget throughout our project, and he was vigilant in ensuing that our contractor was building in accordance with our plans and specifications. We were quit pleased with the completion of our home and so was the City of South Pasadena who awarded us the Cultural Heritage Restoration award. We highly recommend Tom Nott and would happily work with him again.
A Small Condo Development
Congratulations Tom, you accomplished what 4 other architects that worked on my property could not, that is, design a project meeting budget & cost requirements and obtaining city approval with a building permit. As you know we are currently under construction and I know we both look forward to the completion of your beautiful design.
