Sarah Duffy Our experience working with Sam was top notch. After interviewing several architects regarding a gut reno of our Victorian home, Sam was the obvious choice based on his appreciation for character/detail and his depth of knowledge. Knowing that this was our first renovation experience, Sam acted as a trustworthy partner throughout it all, proactively offering crucial guidance and insight each step of the way. We couldnt be happier with the experience we had.

Dawn Carroll Strategic- creative and charming are the best words to describe Sam. It is a pleasure working with him and on his innovative projects. The ability to manage multiple trades, budgets while leaping over many hurdles requires quick thinking and extreme organization. The homes we have worked on together have been magnificent and very proud to be part of his team!

J.BlakeFrom my first meeting with Samuel I was so impressed with his vision and focus to detail . We bought a multi-family which needed a lot of improvements . Me and my wife didn't have much construction experience . But with Samuels help and vision we were able to put together a great plan for our project . From day one to ripping out the old kitchen cabinets till the end of the project we had a great experience with Samuel and all of his crew of workers . I would give his company a big thumbs up and will definitely be working with Sam in any future projects we undertake .

KDTurner Design Sam is extremely knowledgeable and professional builder. I had the pleasure of working with him on a complete remodel of a beautiful Tudor style home and he made my job as landscape architect on the project extremely easy. Sam was the construction manager and provided frequent, detailed updates, facilitated communication extremely effectively, and always called me with any question, to ensure all the disciplines on the job were coordinated efficiently. Highly recommended!

Highly recommended!!!

Ralph L Royle III Samuel Kachmar and I have worked on a few projects together over the years. Right from the start of the working relationship it was obvious that his attention to detail and drive not only was derived from his ambition to succeed but was really pushed by the realationships he developed with his customers. His ability to take a customers vision and bring it to fruition while also adhering to the current standards of workmanship are second to none. I would recommend Samuel Kachmar AIA, LEED AP for any and all of a high-end residential customers needs.

Eser Costanza Sam is an exceptional architect who combines an in-debt expertise in every aspect of the construction field with his architectural design skills. He provided invaluable best-practice advise during the construction of our custom home and connected us with highly experienced and reliable sub-contractors. Sam is very professional in his approach, very organized as a construction manager, always prompt with his response and above all, a very pleasant person to work with. We greatly benefited from Sam's deep and detailed knowledge of the construction process, and I would highly recommend Sam for any design or construction project.

Reed Hayes I live in a home that has been renovated by Sam Kachmar architects. My experience with Sam has been nothing short of first class. In terms of his ability to ideate and envision architecture work, he is one of the best I have seen. Sam built a garden on top of our garage that constantly has our neighbors giving us compliments. Sam's attention to detail and ability to follow up is also amazing. If any work needed to be done then you could 100% count on Sam to respond quickly and get the job done. I can't recommend Sam enough and I will be using his firm to renovate my next house in Cambridge.

Dylan Bradley I have had the pleasure of working with Sam on several jobs, including the wiring of his house. He puts the same effort and attention to detail into his projects as he did at his own house. Sam keeps tight schedules, answers his phone, and tracks down answers to sometimes complicated questions. Would recommend to anyone.

Karl Ivester Working with Sam is always a great experience. He treats to clients as well as his sub contractors with with great respect and in return he gets great results. Do not hesitate to bring Sam onto your next project.

Bruce I. Thoughtful, good listener, talented, and--perhaps even better--experienced in the building trades, Sam worked as project manager for S+H Construction, one of the region's best general contracting companies, before setting out on his own as an architect. In my experience, people who know firsthand how things are put together, and how the design and construction worlds interact, make the best architects. Sam is one of those people.

Stuart L. Excellent experience with Sam.  Great attention to detail and more importantly to our budget.  Highly recommended.

Guy M. I have known Sam Kachmar as a colleague for several years. From working with top custom builders and architects, he has all of the skills, talent and experience you would want in an architect: hands-on and problem-solving abilities from working as a carpenter and site supervisor as well as management, budgeting and communication abilities from working as a project manager and architect. Because of his direct experience, Sam is also able to assess and build a network of high quality, reliable suppliers and subcontractors who are essential team members of successful projects.

Jim F. I currently have the pleausre of collaborating with Sam on a residential remodel in the Avon Hill neighborhood of Cambrdige. Sam has a keen eye for design and is able to bring in practical solutions that work for a growing family - both functional and aesthetically pleasing. He serves as a strong advocate for our client, while empowering the builder and sub-contractors to move forward with complete and accurate information. Having a deep background in residential construction, in addition to design, Sam has a unique skillset that allows him to see the project through a much bigger lens. I would strongly support Sam Kachmar for any residential, architecturally signficiant, project that you may be considering.
