Steven Mueller and his team designed the in-town home I currently live in. It is one of the most beautiful, stylish and well laid out designs I have come across in all the homes I have visited in Greenwich. The quality of the finishing’s, the amazing stairways, glass wine cooler, and the enormous windows that allow natural light throughout the day are what makes this home so special. I did review another potential project with Steven that entailed building a contemporary home on a very challenging lot and he was an absolute pleasure to deal with on many fronts. He is a true professional and is very talented at his trade. I hope to be able to build my next home with Steven Mueller and his team.

As an interior designer, it is always a pleasure to work with Steven and his team. They are responsive, organized, creative, and open to ideas from other professionals.

Steven Mueller Architects really delivered for us on an extremely difficult project. Steven and Niko were there every single step of the way, helping bring to life a project that many others were too afraid to tackle. From the very earliest iterations of conceptual design, the focus at SMA was to make sure that we would be extremely happy with the final product. Even when it meant that more work was required, the SMA team was not only willing, but enthusiastic, about the countless revisions required to make sure that our home was nothing short of spectacular. We are truly grateful to Steven, Niko, and the whole SMA team for being tremendous partners throughout this entire project. Working with you all has been a true pleasure.
Eric & Bella S., Homeowners, Greenwich, CT
In 2010 my husband and I became empty-nesters and decided it was time to move. We must have looked at 50 homes in the Greenwich area, but there was one home that was truly extraordinary. It was designed by Steven Mueller Architects and it was like nothing we had ever seen before. There was a bank of windows extending from the top of the house to the bottom, streaming light upon the most magnificent staircase we had ever seen - it was a breathtaking sight.
We were so inspired by what we saw that we decided we wanted to build a home of our own using Steven Mueller Architects - we never even considered using anyone else. From beginning to end, working with Steven, Niko and Joe was a pleasure, and though our requests were many, and the challenges we encountered were great (it was an in-town build on a small piece of property with lots of restrictions), they managed to give us everything we asked for and more.
The finished product exceeded our expectations, and we couldn’t be happier with the beautiful design, the clever, efficient use of space, and the exceptional quality of our home. After living here for 4 1/2 years, I can honestly say that I wouldn’t change a thing. We will always be grateful to Steven and the team for helping to make building our home a wonderful experience.
Bob & Anne a., Homeowner, Greenwich, CT
Our experience with SMA was exceptional. We were looking to build a home in Greenwich and Steven was extremely helpful throughout the entire process - reviewing and visiting possible properties, helping determine the suitability of the property for our proposed development plan, putting us in touch with the best land use, engineering, and legal consultants. From an architectural perspective Steven and his team were very easy to work, responsive and had a nice blend of beauty and practicality.
Michael & Lauren G., Homeowners, Greenwich, CT
My Wife Adriana and I began searching for the perfect architect to help us build our dream home. As we began the interview process, there was immediate chemistry with Steven and we knew we found the right architect for us. His first sketch of the home was exactly what we discussed and from start to finish it was a very efficient process, with deadlines always being met. What we loved the most was that Steven really listened, and always remained patient, even when there was a language barrier. Throughout the process the highest level of professionalism was always maintained.
Steven - we are eternally thankful and if we ever chose to build another home, there is no doubt that you will be selected as our architect again!
Gustavo G., Homeowner, Greenwich, CT
Steven Mueller and his team designed a home for our family that far exceeded our expectations. Having built previously, we knew we wanted our second home to blend both modern and traditional styles (“soft modern”). SMA Excelled. We relied on Steven’s guidance to incorporate a cutting-edge design while maintaining traditional elements to blend seamlessly with our surrounding back country neighborhood. The way the home flows and captures light throughout the day via the marvelous windows was all thoughtfully planned and executed by Steven and his team. His professionalism and support during the building process was vital and the home he created is a gift to live in. We could not be more grateful to SMA.
Mary & Dustin B., Homeowner, Greenwich, CT
My wife and I retained the services of Steven Mueller Architects for the design of a new home on a unique and challenging lot. Being the general contractor of the project and completing much of the hands-on work myself, I was inherently and deeply involved in the design process. Steven listened to all of the ideas expressed by my wife and I, and he seamlessly infused the viable facets into the master plan. Importantly, Steven respectfully ruled-out ideas which would have ultimately diminished the quality of the design. The fees paid to SMA were monies best spent on the project.
