"We gave Lydia and Robert the challenge of designing a welcoming apartment space from the combining of two alcove apartment spaces. We wanted to accommodate a living room, bedroom and office spaces. They creatively designed in a nook that added extra space in the living room, exposing a 180 degree view. We also appreciated their unique design for the fireplace and TV under a handsome mantle. We are in our eighties and, although this was our first experience in building a 'home', they helped us with care and patience."

"We began our remodel with no experience and our planned project was too big and not well thought out. After talking with several architects we decided to go with Robert and Lydia as we were so comfortable talking with them. They helped us define our goals and a path for achieving a successful outcome. They listened to us and incorporated our ideas with theirs to come up with a great plan. When we encountered unexpected environmental regulations they helped us work through them. We love the finished house. It flows beautifully and has exceeded our expectations."

"I had the pleasure of working with Lydia and Robert during a custom residence that we built in 2010. Lydia provided a Sustainability Outline to assist the Owners and Architect to see how their design choices for the building shell, mechanical systems, energy sources, material selections and construction methods affect their comfort, health and the environment. As a result of RCS's thoughtful approach and their simple and concise presentation we adopted several sustainable practices into the building, including using deconstruction methods and installing a green roof."

"Lydia and Robert care about the process and not just about the product. We came to them with ideas of what we wanted and they guided us through the process of creating a design that reflected our vision. They encouraged us to be actively engaged and remained sensitive to our needs throughout the project. They were detail-oriented, available and responsive. They kept to a realistic timeline and were always mindful of our budgetary constraints. We highly recommend them as professionals who bring inspiration and heart to their work."
