Review by in Fairfax, VA
Studio 76 completed my entire home remodeling for single-family home I bought in as-is condition. Home was in 1970 condition and nothing was updated over the years. I got help in deciding each item and vendors suggested by them had a very good variety of produces at a decent price. This project was very pleasant experience and I am very impressed with quality work performed by them. I definitely recommend them for any kind of project as they have capability and tools to complete any tasks.

Review by in Vienna, VA
It gives our family immense pleasure and a sense of utmost satisfaction and gratification to write about our wonderful experience re-building and re-modeling our primary residence in Fairfax County, VA. This wouldn’t have been possible but for the outstanding job by STUDIO 76 and simply stated due to the superb efforts and involvement of its brain, muscle, and heart- Mr. Nate Penati, the Owner/Builder/Contractor/Architect of STUDIO 76 and his wonderful team. We have been the proud owners of the referenced property since 1991 and for about three years preceding this major re-gutting and re-building project, wanting to upgrade, we hunted for new and other homes on the market, and for builders, looking carefully for a design that we had on our mind or for someone competent to deliver one by helping us rebuild on our existing property. And then we found Studio 76 through a friend’s referral. In less than two weeks from our first meeting, we had a signed contract in place. We moved our things in storage and found temporary living quarters and handed over the premises to STUDIO 76. The best of what we saw in STUDIO 76 and in Mr. Penati is reflected in the precise manner in which STUDIO 76 executes, the speed with which work is performed, the well-coordinated efforts of the various teams that Mr. Penati engages. We saw our dream house mushroom beautifully and Mr. Penati was at the site sometimes several times a day and relentlessly kept his team focused and committed. It was not easy keeping up with Mr. Penati’s speed and progress and nothing in the project seemed difficult that he couldn’t handle. Yes- there were surprises, setbacks and other issues none of which deterred STUDIO 76 and none of which was used as an excuse. It was truly gratifying engaging intellectually with Mr. Penati and to tap into his sharp and uncanny intuitiveness, engineering mind and superb architectural skills. On many issues, Mr. Penati provided the best advice that one can find and it was clear that this was based on sound engineering principles and not just based on the monetary value alone. In fact, based on Mr. Penati’s recommendations, by agreeing to switch to a more meaningful product than what we initially wanted, we were also able to save money. With modesty, our project is perhaps a minority in the country for a residential re-gut and rebuild to receive three prestigious certifications. Since we were set out to build something nice and unique, in addition to meeting every requirement set forth by the County, we pursued to raise the bar further in trying to achieve a well-engineered house – a certification that we wanted from independent bodies. Therefore, with confidence in STUDIO 76, we simultaneously pursued in seeking the following certifications- LEED certification (US Green Building Council), National Green Building Standard certification (NGBS, Home Innovation Research) and Energy Star certification. Thanks to the ou

Review by in Vienna, VA
We just remodeled our home and added about 700 sq ft. in two levels. We added a new kitchen, breakfast area and a basement. Studio76 is a design and build firm that builds custom homes. Before we signed a contract, we visited one of their new homes and were happy with the quality of the construction. We worked with Nate, the architect/owner, from start to finish. During the design phase he was very flexible and worked with us in coming up with a design that met our requirements. The project included a new kitchen/breakfast area, bathroom, electrical panel, HVAC, basement and demolishing the old kitchen into a formal dining area; almost like a new home. You would not notice the difference between the new addition and the original structure. It fit seamlessly with the existing home. During the construction phase, Nate and his manager were always available and were prompt in responding to any questions. The crew was efficient, and careful as we were living in the home during construction. They took protective measures to minimize the noise and dust. Nate and his team took care of all the required permits and inspections. The work was completed on time and within budget with high quality. We would highly recommend Studio76 for any project.

Review by in Holliston, VA
I am currently working with Studio 76 to design and build my contemporary home. I have been consistently impressed with the Lead Architect's creativity in designing spaces of any size so that they are most functional and attractive. They take the time to understand the client's needs and ensure that the designs exceed expectations. The Studio 76 team continues to improve upon the designs even after I am satisfied, until the final product is perfect.

Review by in Holliston, VA
Studio 76 remodeled my condo and it was an easy, stress-free experience with a final product that looks perfect. The firm has excellent contacts and relationships with materials vendors, which helped me select high quality materials for very reasonable prices. I had an extremely tight timeline for some pretty extensive remodel on the condo and Studio 76 delivered!
