What Our Clients Have to Say
“Donald is truly gifted. He was able to hear what we wanted and transform it into something more interesting. He was respectful of our budget. I felt like he was truly invested in our project. We remain friends with him and refer him to our colleagues. We love our house and continue to give him credit”
Anne F., Client
“Donald came to our house several times and sat in the driveway, just staring at the house for hours. He came to the door one day and said, ‘I figured it out: your house has no character, because it is facing the wrong direction. When a car approaches the house down the driveway, they are approaching the side of the house. We need to create an addition that changes the side of the house into the front of the house.’ At first, this did not make sense to us. But Donald came back with a graphic video that made perfect sense. It was a brilliant design, and we embraced it wholly.”
“Donald Lococo has an uncanny ability to turn people into houses. He might have met with us for a month before he ever picked up a pencil. But from a blank piece of paper, the result is not only original and architecturally striking, but a home perfectly designed around our individual lifestyles, personalities, and habits. The DLA team has been a pleasure to work with and a lifesaver in navigating the construction management process. They literally fought to ensure that every detail in our project was perfect. They conducted themselves as though we were their only client. Lococo is a natural talent. God forbid my wife ever allows me to build another house one day, but if I do, I won’t even consider another architect.”
Karl K., Client
“Donald Lococo is a blast to work with. Indeed, his whole team is terrific. They are smart, thoughtful, and full of restless, creative energy that is simply cool to be around. When my wife and I ran into difficulties with another architect who was renovating our Washington, DC bungalow, Donald came in and graciously found solutions for us that made the whole project come together. We later hired him to design a live-in/work-in garage that turned out perfectly. Donald insisted we use as much as possible of the structure’s historical underpinnings, and the result was outstanding. Highly recommended!”
J. Mudd., Client
