“Laura and her team were extremely easy to work with. She listened to our needs and translated our vision into reality. Her attention to detail was excellent and everything was delivered on-time, as promised. We are extremely happy with her work and hope to work with her again.”

Jeff and Jo Helman, Clients 2016


“Excellent experience with Laura. She worked our small kitchen/breakfast room space into an open space with two eating spaces, a mudroom and beautiful layout. She also came up with an idea to open up a wall to our living room that improved the flow of our house immensely. Laura was a pleasure to work with on our project. We would do it again and again.”

Sybil Mead and Dan Leraris, Clients 2016


“The house is stunning. Above and beyond our expectations! Every detail is amazingly beautiful. I can’t figure out what is my favorite. Thank you for your incredible drawings, I love love my house.”

Katherine Gaines, Client 2016

“Laura, Wow. You made me cry. The trees look familiar and the sentiment oh so familiar.[ ] We both loved how you LISTENED to us and did NOT force YOUR vision on us. But, helped us find ours. We couldn’t find that joyful feeling off a canned computer model! We will love going to this house for years to come. I look forward to you and Andy coming down to see the finished product.

“Laura Thomas of Melville Thomas is one of those architects that I love to partner with.  Both she and her staff are responsive, team-oriented and detailed which makes the entire project run smoothly!  Laura’s detailed drawings are a reflection of her creative solutions, giving the homeowner the clearest possible picture of the remodeling plans.  Her open and honest communication style and her willingness to remain part of the team throughout the entire renovation process always result in extremely satisfied clients.”

Daren Bowen, Legacy Restorations: Builder 2014


“First of all, Thank you! The house is unbelievably beautiful! Every little detail catches your eye from each beautiful room to another.The talent and the hard work that went into this is remarkable. Promise us to come down and see it soon. It just doesn’t seem complete without you seeing the end result, the Masterpiece. You will be amazed and proud!  Thank you again and again!

Liz Moag, Client: 2013


“We have used Laura several times and we are currently involved with her on a small project today–we have used her 3-4 times over the past 10 years.  She is a very detailed, professional and responsive individual.  We are very happy with her ideas and execution.  Laura is strongly recommended.”

John Wakeman, Client: 2002-2012


“Laura and her firm were fantastic partners during our initial planned remodeling and later new construction. Super creative on design but also VERY hands-on and practical in selecting great construction partners (contractors, landscaping, interior, etc.).”

Eilif Serck-Hanssen, Client: 2010


“When Laura and her team presented us with their first set of drawings we were struck by their vision. She had creative ideas about how to most effectively use the new space, while also melding it with the existing space so that one cannot differentiate where the old ends and the new begins. Their attention to detail in crafting construction drawings made the entire construction process far simpler, less painful and likely less costly.”

Scott Bloomberg, Client: 2009
