Charles and Stewart took our pretty, but average, home and elevated it to extraordinary. They found creative ways to enhance existing spaces and also design new ones filled with classic lines and charming details. Their organizational and communication skills are excellent. My husband and I never worried about anything when they were in charge of our projects. From our first meeting with them, we understood that they were going to take care of the hundreds of details it takes to build a home, from the architectural drawings through interior design, and present it to us in an organized way that was easily understood. What could have been overwhelming was actually fun. Most importantly, we have a home that is exactly what we always dreamed of, and it is thanks to them. I believe their project photos speak for themselves. Just beautiful.

I own one of the houses designed by Haver & Skolnick. It is each day that I wake up to admire the work of these architects. Their design for my home is truly brilliant with interesting angles and proportions that draw your eyes to the rooflines, ceilings, windows, and paneling throughout. Each room is a pleasure to spend time in. The siting of the structures within the hilly landscape takes advantage of the slopes, again giving each room interest and also beautiful views out of each window. I love every minute in my home. Haver & Skolnick have done remarkable work that will stand the test of time for generations to come.

Thomas Piazza Jr.

I have spent 35 years in the field of construction; 25 years of which have been in the high-end residential construction sector. I was the Project Superintendent of a large residence in Washington,CT.; of which Charles Haver and Stewart Skolnick were the Architects.

I first met Charles and Stewart at the kick off meeting at their Studio. I was most impressed how well they managed the meeting, their cordiality and their professionalism.

The home they designed was very detailed and complex of structure. It was not going to be an easy home to build. They put so much effort into the drawings, the home came to fruition flawlessly. Haver and Skolnick Architects make a stupendous team. Not only did they do the architectural design: they did the landscaping design, interior design and decorating.

I have never worked with an Architectural firm as professional, courteous and artistic as Haver and Skolnick Architects. Because of their dedication and talent the project came together with silicon like smoothness. On time and on budget.

I highly recommend Haver and Skolnick Architects. As a team, Charles and Stewart possess a unique sensitivity to design challenges between them, and are both highly professional and personable to work with. Their versatility is remarkable, being equally comfortable within more traditional architectural styles, as with projects requiring a contemporary sensibility. From Bauhaus to country house, their work is infused with sophistication, experience, and expertise.

CLJ Lancaster

Having designed and built two houses (one an English Country House, the other in the Jacobean Hunting Lodge style) ourselves, we now want to build a house in the style of an English Vicarage from the late seventeenth century. However, at this point in life we do not want to be our own contractor. We came to Haver and Skolnick with our specific conception and ideas, and they did not treat us like dilettanti or look askance at our drawings. Conversely, they perceived precisely what we envisioned. Entering our creation with verve and understanding, they guide with disciplined but artistic flare. We like their balance of art and business, elegance and grit. There is no doubt that they will strive for the “right note” that is so essential to creating a historical house because historic accuracy is always paramount. We look forward to working with them as we all transfigure this dream house into reality.

As a twenty-five year luxury broker in Litchfield County, I have collaborated with my friends and clients Charles Haver and Stewart Skolnick on many occasions.

I am always highly impressed with their impeccable detail and professional, unique attention to every project they have undertaken. Their work is consistently and exquisitely executed every time. They are masters at their craft.

Charles and Stewart offer their nonpareil and creative talent and attention to detail that perfectly coalesces with their clients’ wishes for exquisite and personal spaces that reflect both the clients’ living and aesthetic needs.

In the last four years, I have had the honor to broker three of their eminent masterpieces. Their work is without compare; it is, simply, exquisite and first-rate. Each skillfully executed and professionally managed project is a thing of beauty and grace. That is the legacy of the preeminent and gifted Haver-Skolnick collaboration of ingenuity, taste, and finesse. My hat is off to them.

I am an art consultant and had the pleasure of working in conjunction with Haver & Skolnick on a project to redesign a client's apartment and and re-install the art collection. H & S ran the project in an extremely efficient and organized manner, thus making my job straightforward and seemless. They were a pleasure to work with every step of the way due to their professionalism and attention to detail. Artistically and creatively, they transformed the space to make the art collection sing. If only everyone were so talented! I highly recommend them and hope we can work together many times in the future.

As a Litchfield County building contractor of higher end homes, we were lucky enough to have worked with Haver & Skolnick LLC Architects. The detail they provide their clients makes building the project interesting and something to be proud of when completed. We have done total remodeling to new homes of five thousand square feet or more. Each project was treated equally. We look forward to working on another one.
