This residential architect built the house of my mother-in-law in Dallas, Texas. Not only is it totally unique and beautiful, it was built around the couples lifestyle, facilitating their daily tasks and expressing their personality. It is rather impressive that you can build a house that is a fairly accurate expression of the people living in it. The architect works under the moto 'we don't build houses, we build homes.' I just want to add to that that he builds works of art as well.
Pros: Listens to his customers and understands them.
Cons: None that I am aware of
