What Our Clients Have To Say

One of the best decisions I have made this year was to hire the osyk3 architect team. I just wanted to share a quick note to thank you for being such good partners. Your team has truly delivered a solution that exceeds my architecture and design needs. From our first encounter, you realized the building project scope and my end goals. Now as the design phase is finished, I'm even more impressed by your due diligence and proactive approach to help me move the building project forward. The oysk3 Architects team really listened, allowed me to share my vision and then executed the vision to fruition. Thanks Guys!

- Jim Klonaris, Kefi Greek Restaurant

[The architecture firm was] exemplary in the manner in which they carried out their business. They acted professionally at all times and instilled confidence in me that their work would be done timely and to my satisfaction.

- Steven Albright, Albright & Company CPA

[The oysk3 team] was of great benefit in grasping the essence of what the group desired by presenting numerous designs and making necessary modifications that allowed us to stay within our limited budget. [The team] followed up with this process by preparing the final design, assisting in choosing eligible bidders, contract preparation, and construction administration.

- David E. Buck, City of Alcoa

From the initial design stage to building project completion, we found [the oysk3 architects team] to be very professional and attentive. [Their] assistance in coordinating interior design, space planning, finishes, and furnishings was also excellent. Our project was completed on time and within budget, and [oysk3 architects] involvement contributed much to the success of this building project.
