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.
True professionals! Incredibly organized, detail oriented, and follow through on every task. I consider it a privilege to work with Charles & Stewart.

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.
Great architectural team and pleasant to work with. Very professional and their architectural plan package very complete which in turn makes building the project out much easier and less costly for the Owner and Builder.
Throughout the project, Mr. Skolnick demonstrated the kind of excellence many strive for, but don't attain. His professionalism, kind, but forthright manner, and attention to details made working with him a pleasure.
Working with Charles and Stewart is a seamless experience. Their vision of what their client wants is clear, and they go about attaining it in a most pleasant and professional manner. In addition, their work is not only beautiful but livable. We look forward to more collaborations in the future!

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.
