“When we build, let us think that we build for ever.” - John Ruskin, 19th century social thinker




January 13, 2016, Old Lyme, Connecticut -
Nautlus Architects, of Old Lyme, has been awarded the distinction of Best of houzz 2016-Design and Service. Their design work has been voted as the most popular portfolio with the highest levels of customer satisfaction. Houzz is the leading online platform for home remodeling and design, providing people with everything they need to improve their homes from start to finish - online or from a mobile device.
“Anyone building, remodeling or decorating looks to Houzz for the most talented, competent and service-oriented professionals,” said Liza Hausman, vice president of Industry Marketing for houzz. “We’re delighted to join our community of homeowners and design enthusiasts in recognizing our “Best of houzz” professionals around the world.”

The Best Of houzz is awarded annually in three categories: Design, Customer Service and Photography. Design award winners’ work was the most popular among the more than 35 million monthly users on Houzz. Customer Service honors are based on several factors, including the number and quality of recent client reviews. Architecture and interior design photographers whose images were most popular are recognized with the Photography award.

In particular, this project by Christopher Arelt, Principal Architect, AIA AP LEED, Nautilus Architects, has been added to over 9,000 “ideabooks” on houzz by both design professionals and homeowners.
“I love the ability houzz gives me to connect with my clients before, during and after a successful project. By utilizing the houzz site to document the design process my services are transparent to my client and they appreciate the depth of resources I make available to them.”

"After being wholly satisfied with two other design projects on our property - a barn/workshop/potting shed complex and a renovation of our master bath and dressing room, we looked no further than Nautilus Architects to design our new 3000 sq. ft. guesthouse/pool cottage."
