Eben and Kristie Breed

My husband and I were hesitant to take on a project of this magnitude since we had never done anything like it before. We purchased a one-hundred year old stone house in need of renovation on Canoe Hill Road in New Canaan, Connecticut. With over 15 acres of property, it was extremely important for us to consider the natural landscape in the overall project. A friend recommended we consult with Wadia and Associates for the large project. We had a wonderful first conversation with Dinyar and it was immediately evident he and his team were the right people for the job.

Ever since I was a young girl I have admired your work. Growing up next door to you and Gool was such a special treat. I can remember Molly and I would come into your kitchen and Gool would always offer us all different kinds of Indian food. I also remember climbing up into your office above the garage, and seeing your drawing boards with exciting architectural plans. Who knew some day you would be designing a home for my family? What a dream come true.

Gulestan & Farrokh Deboo

We are sorry it has taken so long for us to write to you in appreciation for the home you designed and built for us. It is now just about ten years since we moved into our brand new home. We have not ceased to be amazed at how elegant the house is every time we enter our home. From the curb appeal of the brick-and-slate Georgian symmetry to the interior flow of the space to the intricate detailing and carefully thought-out placement of various functional elements, it is simply a marvelous home.

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to recommend Wadia Associates for their careful, artistic and thoughtful design and detail of our beautiful new home. Like many design clients, we began the process with a great number of random ideas, but with no clear definition of the outcome of the whole package. By listening to our requirements, Dinyar and his project architect created a home so ideally suited to our entire family and so convenient to our lifestyle, it is difficult to imagine living anywhere else. We love our home and very much enjoyed working on its design with Dinyar.

Dawn Egan

It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Dinyar Wadia and Wadia Associates. My project began with many conversations based on living…. how does my family live, what is a priority, what is ideal, what is necessary, how do I envision waking up, describe ideal living, imagine my dream room. The process went smoothly from discussions to the drawing board to breaking ground. Dinyar was there every step of the way. The day we broke ground was one of the most exciting ever. The confidence we felt increased after our first meeting with our Project Manager, Warren Wilson.

Gool Wadia

I was very worried when we embarked on the journey to restore a home built in 1760. It seemed like a monumental task taking on a very old home to which nothing had been done for at least twenty five years before we purchased it and transform it into warm, cozy home for today’s living.

My wife and I live in an enchanting French Norman home, which one encounters only in France, surrounded by wonderful French gardens. No one believes that our home is just a few years old. The design, combined with sensitive and yet practical selection of materials, give it a timeless look. We adore our home and gardens. A hundred years from now it will retain its charm, just as the homes we visit in France.

G. W. Hank

About four years ago I retained Dinyar Wadia to remodel a substantial limestone and brick home and its guest house, which was originally designed for the Tagert family. Both needed extensive work since the previous owners had not spent a single penny on the estate for at least the last twenty-five years.

The house has turned out so well, and we just love what you guys did for us!! I had a surprise 75th birthday party for my Dad last weekend and everyone raved about the house renovation. Our family and friends thought it was wonderful and a true reflection of us; it’s warm, comfortable, approachable and so well done. John and I could not be happier.

David Windreich & Chris Hikawa

We started working with Dinyar Wadia almost five years ago on the renovation of our house in Greenwich. At that time, we thought that we knew a great deal about design and construction as we had renovated several homes prior to moving to Greenwich. It is only now, after having lived in our house for two years, that we have come to understand the value of the services that Dinyar Wadia provides. Dinyar contributes to the design process not just his keen insight into the logical use of space, but the critical decisions about finished that set our house apart from others.

Tommy Hilfiger

I am delighted with the design of the Georgian home which Dinyar Wadia and Wadia Associates prepared for my property at the top of Round Hill Road. The style of the house and the functional aspects were seamlessly integrated with the building site and my requirements. Upon my approval of the preliminary sketches, Dinyar completed the schematic phase of the work, incorporating my comments into the process. I also received a beautiful watercolor rendering, which gave me a clear idea of what my house would look like when complete.

Working on a house designed by John Russell Pope and built in 1917 was certainly a challenge that not many architects would dare to take on! We were so glad that you took this challenge and we cannot be happier with the results.

We have had the pleasure of knowing Dinyar Wadia for many years and have had the privilege of working on numerous projects together, ranging from the design of a large home in the suburbs to a massive renovation of two apartments in New York City. More importantly, through our work together, we now count Dinyar as one of our closest family friends and would never consider hiring another architect for any future project that we will undertake, even if another’s services were offered to us gratis.

Whit & Paulette Marshall

Paulette and I want to thank you for the incredible job you did for us on our new home. As I think back to when we started with a difficult piece of land, I am amazed by the beauty and practicality of the final design of our lovely home. The house looks perfect from the street and integrates well with the property. The layout and flow inside is great and adding a “secret passage” between the kids rooms really sealed the deal for our children.

We can hardly believe it has been two and half years since we engaged Wadia Associates to design the renovation our new (old) house at 58 Greenley Road in New Canaan. When we decided to purchase the property in June 2008, we did so knowing it would be an enormous challenge to restore a house in severe disrepair to its original spectacular state.

It is with great pleasure that we recommend Wadia Associates who designed our Edwardian home. From the first time we met Dinyar Wadia through the process of designing and constructing our home, he was most professional, knowledgeable and accommodating. His personal ethics and client service were impeccable. He was fully involved from the initial design work to the completion of construction and beyond. His staff is of the highest quality.

After interviewing several architects, seeing and comparing Dinyar’s work to others and based on the very positive feedback from our friends, we decided to retain Wadia Associates to design and build our home. His references were delighted with their homes and their working relationship with Dinyar. Like them, we too are very pleased with his design skills, his personal involvement, hands on managerial style and interest in our project from inception to completion.

Four years ago my wife and I purchased a home, then under construction, from Dinyar Wadia. Before occupancy, some six months later, we worked very closely with Mr. Wadia on the many details involved in completing the house. He was always responsive, diligent and courteous. He also made certain his subcontractors were the same.

We consider ourselves fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Wadia Associates. Dinyar, you have been instrumental in the amazing outcome of our project, an 80-year-old stone Tudor renovation with lots of unique detail which was once a manor house set on 18 acres in the Hunt Club neighborhood of Westport, CT. A very special friend, and former selectman of Greenwich, passed along your name as we had expressed to him our dissatisfaction with another firm that had presented us with over a year’s worth of disappointing designs.
