From Our Clients
"Jerry is a terrific architect and a wonderful person to work with. Easy to communicate with about design matters large and small, he's sensitive to cost concerns if they arise and always finds an elegant solution to any problem. We have worked with him on three different houses and wouldn't think of using anyone else.”
-Margot Dockrell & Phil Turner, Essex Fells, New Jersey
“Jerry Bruno not only posses the highest level of architectural expertise, but is also a problem solver, quick thinker and responder, professional and dedicated to his clients. We have worked with Jerry to re-design the outside of our home, had him come up with solutions for our indoor hallway project that are highly functional and simultaneously beautiful, and most recently had him assist us with a very quick turn around project for an outdoor swim spa in our yard. His attention to detail, honesty, reliability and superior work ethic make him our first choice architect for any project at our home. Most importantly, Jerry is a pleasure to work with and truly one of the kindest human beings we have ever had the pleasure of working with. “
-Michael & Carrie Guarino, Madison, New Jersey
"We hired Jerry Bruno to design a full redevelopment of the interior and exterior of our house. We chose Jerry for his attention to details, his passion for design and his vision. We could not have been more pleased with our choice. Jerry designed a beautiful house, produced extremely detailed drawings allowing us to get comprehensive bids, helping us to ultimately come in on budget, and was a problem solver as the inevitable construction issues came up. Based on our experience and his portfolio, Jerry takes into account the existing character of the home and looks to come up with a design that matches the home. We would highly recommend Jerry for anyone looking for a creative and fitting design delivered with the highest standards of professionalism."
- Dan & Jaimee McKeever, Madison, New Jersey
“We knew we had the right architect during our first meeting with Jerry Bruno. Almost immediately, Jerry understood our vision for a substantial renovation and addition to our 60-year old Cape Cod style home. Our goal was to modernize and enlarge our home, but most importantly we wanted the final result to appear as if it was the original house design, and not just look like a large box was tacked on to the rear of the house. Jerry’s insight, skill, and experience were instrumental in accomplishing all of our objectives. Through the creative use of flying gabels, a unique dormer concept, innovative window trim and other features, Jerry’s design and comprehensive construction plans turned our vision into reality. In what could have been a very difficult process, Jerry’s focus on detail, guidance on construction issues, and overall dedication to our project was invaluable. We highly recommend Jerry Bruno.”
-Steven and Francesca Gooby, Madison, New Jersey
“We loved working with Jerry. He did our mudroom/porch addition. He did a wonderful job. Our house is 120 years old and Jerry made it all look seamless. He is a joy to work with and we highly recommend him. I would use him again.”
-Gerry & Phyllis Watson, Madison, New Jersey
“I would like to thank you for the inspiration that you provided during our house renovation. We love the finished project! It would not have been possible without your guidance and direction. During the renovation, our contractors raved about your attention to detail and responsiveness. Your professionalism was unmatched. My husband and I are so pleased with the way our house turned out. We constantly say you made our project happen the right way and we are so happy with it. Many, many thanks.”
