In 2014, Chris designed the home we live in now. It was the first time we took on a project of this scale. His creativity, curiosity, patience, and all around helpfulness supported us in realizing our dream. We love our home, and raising our family here. I'm thankful Chris was a big part of it.


My wife and I really enjoyed working with Littlewolf Architecture because Chris made the design process easy for us. He maintained very high standards while working to an agreed schedule. He asked a lot of questions and offered alternate solutions to ensure that we made conscious design choices, from early sketches through to material selection and interior details. Chris assisted us in selecting a fine contractor and making budget decisions. He monitored the work on site with concise field reports and action items. Through the architectural process we developed a high level of trust in Chris for his integrity and judgment, and for his creativity.

Working with Chris Vlcek was an exciting and rewarding experience throughout our house transformation. His review of the property prior to purchase was invaluable in helping us to see its potential. He was both extremely creative and very practical in suggesting design possibilities. He listened carefully to our interests and worked to incorporate eclectic influences into a unified and delightful home. In short, he was creative, competent, professional and a pleasure to work with.

It is a great pleasure to comment on the experience and relationship that I had with Chris Vlcek, the Architect of my home in the Berkshires. The design is a remarkable integration of the craftsman style which I love, with a contemporary sensibility. I still marvel at the comfort and pleasing feeling that I have about the house, the creative angles, the views from the windows, and the thoughtful attention to detail that Chris provided. He visited the site at various times of the day tweaking the composition to ensure the house and landscaping were in synch with the movement of the sun, the light, and in harmony with the forest. During construction, Chris kept a close eye on the work and provided a high level of collaboration with the builder. He designed the kitchen, bathrooms, and all of the built-ins to reflect the natural flavor of the house. Chris listened to my desires, expectations and how special I wanted this house to be for me and my family. He delivered a remarkably satisfying home in perfect harmony with its site.
