Judy and Bill were the architect and builders for our home in New Canaan. They were an absolute delight to work with – they were on time, on budget, responsive and flexible. The finished product has been nothing short of exceptional. The smallest issue requires a call to Bill’s cell phone and he has someone there in an hour to address it – this after a year of living in the residence. They stand by their work and their reputation speaks for itself.

Judy Larson and Bill Gardiner are wonderful to work with. Judy is a very skilled designer/architect with impeccable taste. We hired Judy after we became familiar with her work while house hunting. Judy has local renown for her very tasteful house designs and renovations. Bill’s company is known for it’s many high end construction projects. He builds houses with the upmost quality of materials, craftsmanship and attention to detail for a very demanding clientele. Not only do we admire their work and professionalism, but the experience of working with them has been so pleasant, that we consider Judy and Bill our friends.

Judy Larson is a true professional, a great listener and out of the box designer. Her ideas were spot on target and original. Our job was not easy and the end result exceeded our expectations! The Condo renovation was started in January 2016 and finished in May of 2016. Costs were on budget, just under $300,000.

My husband and I are currently in the process of working with Judy and her firm on a plan for the perfect retirement home. Judy has worked with us tirelessly as we explore the many creative design options she has brought to us. We are so pleased to be working with such a skilled professional who is willing to hold our hand through the process knowing when to listen and when to lead. Because of her extensive knowledge and experience she immediately understood the dynamics of the property, best siting and location for the house to achieve optimum use of yard and lighting. She is an empathetic listener and quickly got a good sense of our needs. We consider her advice and input invaluable and are so pleased with our choice of architect.

Judy and her team were amazing to work with. They are true experts and have incredible taste. Their level of expertise and professionalism is second to none. We thought designing our house would be an overwhelming process but because Judy is such a pro, it couldn’t have been easier – everything she designs is beautiful and sensible, we rarely had any comments/changes. The entire process has been smooth, enjoyable, and exciting. We can not wait to move into the dream home Judy designed for us!

We knew we would be in good hands when we hired Judy Larson based on her stunning portfolio, decades of experience, and long list of happy clients. We were pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable she and her team made the process of building our dream house (we did a massive renovation that touched every room). Judy was hands on and attentive to detail every step of the way, working closely with our interior designer and contractor. She made sure to understand exactly what we wanted and what our budget was, and then came up with amazing ideas that completely surpassed our expectations of what was possible, bringing light and elegance to every room in our home. We appreciate Judy Larson’s work every day!

Judy Larson transformed our basement into an exceptionally and meticulously designed, contemporary man cave. Judy has been a real joy to work with throughout the process from design to implementation. Judy incorporated many unique elements in our project. Her ability to visualize the space we wanted was spot on. We trusted Judy’s judgment 100% throughout the process and could not be happier. We highly recommend Judy for high-end architectural design projects.

Thank you so much for our beautiful home! We really love it. It’s been great working with you and we really appreciate your effort to get us in by July 1! You really made us feel that you cared as much about our home as we do. THANK YOU!!

When we decided to build our Dream House, we selected the Gardiner/Larson team after investigating a number of the other architects and builders of high end homes in our area. They alone offered what we believed to be the combination of expertise, attention to quality and seamless coordination essential to having a successful project. From beginning to end, we were thoroughly comfortable with our decision and the outcome was indeed the home we’ve always wanted.

We spent the day today walking around admiring every inch of the beautiful home that you (Gardiner & Larson) built. It is spectacular! It is beautiful and elegant, yet warm and comfortable. There are so many lovely details and it is obvious how much time and thought went into creating it. We absolutely love it and are incredibly happy to be living here.

During the design of our home, we had several sit-down sessions where we shared our ideas with Judy. Each iteration came back with exactly what we envisioned. We always felt comfortable making tweaks to any early drafts. I’m sure that some designers only hear what they want to hear and have preconceived ideas that they want you to buy into. Not Judy, she took all of our ideas and crafted them into a beautiful and functional home. I doubt that many new homeowners could say that they wouldn’t change a thing about the finished product. After three years in our Judith Larson designed home, we can honestly say that we can’t think of one single thing that we wished we had added.

Judy Larson and Bill Gardiner came highly recommended to us. We were assured that they are extremely meticulous, professional, honest, and straightforward. This has certainly been our experience. The entire team has run the project with great attention to detail, keeping us up to date and informed at all stages and the standard of craftsmanship is superb. Bill and Judy and their teams work very independently but consult us often with pictures, plans and emails, which is very important to us given how far away we live. While they not surprisingly work well together, we have always felt we got unbiased reads from both of them on the other’s work and ideas, and we have never had the sense one was acting as agent for the other. We were told at the outset to just trust Bill and Judy as a team—and they were right. We can’t recommend Bill and Judy highly enough!
