I am beyond thrilled!!

“Charlie and Co. designed my new home in St. Paul and I am beyond thrilled!! Not only is the finished home stunning but the entire process was a Joy. From working directly with Charlie to the meetings with his staff every time we were together they made sure to walk me through what was happening and truly listen to what I was looking for. If you are looking for an Architect I would highly recommend Charlie and Co. Design.”

professional in every sense

“My wife and I worked with Colby to design our spectacular new home. Colby was a professional in every sense of the word and a pleasure to work with through the entire project. He was consultative along the way and worked with our vision and style to create a finished product that exceeds our most farfetched expectations. Truly a pleasure. ”

very passionate about his work

“We hired Charlie to draw plans for a kitchen design that soon led to a full main level remodel. We spoke with many architects, but his ideas and approach won out. He was able to help us accomplish all of our needs; form and function, keeping with era of the home, working within the space constraints, blending an old addition to the rest of the home. Most rooms were a complete remodel and others were some simple yet drastic changes that he recommended. He worked well with our designer, contractor, cabinet maker, and us. The communication level was incredible. At the onset the cost for the design seemed a bit high (still reasonable) but in the end it became clear that our great plans were well worth the cost. In fact, probably saved us money. At no point were we ever having to make decisions on the fly, he accounted for everything.
   Charlie is also very passionate about his work. Fun to work with somebody that is so plugged in.”

They are true professionals

“After a lengthy search of architects for our new home, we luckily found Charlie & Co. We fell in love with their work on Houzz.com and were hoping they would be able to take on our project which had a short timeline and was located in Canada. From the moment we spoke with Charlie and Colby it was the right fit. They are true professionals who are client focused, friendly, creative and possess a can do attitude all the time. The process of working with them was an easy one with open communication and an incredible attention to detail, which was critical due the fact that we are out of the country. We could not be happier with the home they designed for us or with the experience of working with them. We would highly recommend Charlie & Co. to anyone looking to build a home!”

charlie's designs have stayed true

“Your home is more than just your biggest investment, it's where your family lives and gathers and celebrates. It's personal. It's emotional. And it has to be just right! Charlie & Co helped us renovate our entire 100 year old house into our dream home!

Charlie's designs have stayed true to the historical era of our home, and have even enhanced its historical charm. Everything has been customized to fit our lifestyle, personality, and preferences and has far exceeded any and all expectations. Charlie's attention to detail is far superior to others of his trade. The fit and finish of ceiling, cabinetry, lighting, and trimming details (just to name a few) create an end product that literally "wows" you. Our home is a collaboration of one beautiful space followed by another.

Charlie & Co. has gone above and beyond to manage the construction process of our home, has been very accommodating to meet our hectic schedules and 'need it yesterday' timeline, and has made the renovation process overall very enjoyable. We will continue to work with Charlie and his talented team in the future, and we will give them the highest recommendation as well.”

“Charlie designed our new home near Minneapolis, MN. It was a pleasure working with him. He's creative and collaborative. Everything Charlie does is beautiful. There are so many special details that we love in the interior and on the exterior of our home. He also did a brilliant job with the layout as well as with positioning our house on the lot to maximize the views/setting. I'd love to do it all over again! Thanks Charlie!”

We are thrilled with our remodel

“Charlie did a marvelous job of designing our kitchen, back entry and three bathroom remodel. We loved our 1930's federal style home, but it badly needed updating. My husband and I wanted to maintain the character of our home, but improve the functions for our busy family of six. Charlie was able to provide both by staying true to the federal style architecture and yet wrap in modern functionality. Working with Charlie made the project both enjoyable and seamless from beginning to end. The result, we believe, is easy to live in, beautiful home. We are thrilled with our remodel, and now enjoy opening up our home to entertain family and friends.”—Charlie and Co. Client


Charlie & Co. took our ideas, listened to our needs/wants, and produced a beautiful home

“We highly recommend Charlie & Co. They are a team of talented professionals who bring creativity, passion and wisdom to the design process. We were asked to use Houzz.com to identify our tastes and preferences. Both my husband and I created IdeaBooks to clearly communicate our wishes through visuals and words. Charlie & Co then applied their unbiased approach and offered fresh ideas to create our dream home - including managing back to a budget with 'value engineering’ options. Bottom line: Charlie & Co took our ideas, listened to our needs/wants, and produced a beautiful home that exceeded our expectations!”
