As someone who has worked in both construction and community planning and development for over forty years, I most appreciate architecture when it is tasteful and complementary to its setting. The projects designed by Strekalovsky Architecture always reflect this objective. Vcevy and Mark take the time to understand the context of the building or addition that they are designing and, as a result, their finished products, while being architecturally distinctive, still fit seamlessly into their settings.
Working with Vcevy and Mark at Strekalovsky Architecture was as much a partnership as we could have hoped for. They led us through plans and ideas that not only met our vision but improved upon them. Their ability to work with construction managers, contractors and various town departments saved time and money that was dearly needed.

Unobtrusive and timeless, structural elements and the design work seamlessly and blend well, providing both contrast and connection so that together they form a unified, useable and amazing space. In short, Vcevy built the Community within the Harwich Community Center. I submit my highest recommendation. Vcevy’s work is mature, timeless and treasured. He is amazing with his construction management and collaborative skills and beyond a pleasure to work with.
Vcevy worked well with our building committee and the contractor, which resulted in an attractive building that fully met our needs. The new sanctuary that he designed is very beautiful.

Working with Vcevy and Mark is a pleasure. They are flexible and encourage dialogue that leads to effective decision-making through introduction of design and construction options – anticipating issues before they arise. I can state unequivocally they are real team players, bringing skill and professionalism to our projects and to public forums in which they participate.
