We worked with Terry for the renovations to our 1930’s waterfront cottage in St. Margaret’s. He transformed the restrictive footprint into an open, light filled floor plan with expansive water views. We love the spacious foyer, workable galley kitchen, huge master, comfortable sized guest room, and apartment for friends and family. I now have a large studio with great northern light. Terry was a pleasure to work with, open to your ideas while affording his knowledge of design and space.

Gail Higgenbotham

I was excited when Terry approached me for a commission painting to hang in his office. His diverse commercial projects intrigued me, so I incorporated some of his designs into the oil pastel. The unique design of Paul’s Homewood Cafe (a favorite of mine) fits comfortably among eclectic buildings on West Street.

Gail Higginbotham, Artist

I am a Realtor in Annapolis; and have very recently had clients who worked with Terry on the renovation of their historic home. The clients loved the outcome of the project and were very impressed with Terry’s creative work. His experience working with the city of Annapolis was an invaluable part of the process. I always feel confident referring Terry to clients who need a great architect!

MaryKay Gordon

Terry’s design work is classic and timeless. I don’t mean to imply it’s all historic restoration, for Terry can do quite bold work. It is the high quality of the finished product which will prove itself over and over to be a classic, and timeless for the homeowner. It’s not going to be a passing trend which one regrets shortly after project completion. Instead, I find that I fall more and more in love with what Terry designed for us. It’s as if he knows what we envision before we find words to describe what we want. There are two of Terry’s designs side by side on our street, and they couldn’t look more different from one another. There’s no copycat work being done here. Each project is a new creation, uniquely and spectacularly your imprint. But oh so classic and timeless! I can literally walk my neighborhood of Eastport and point out his work – it stands heads and shoulders above the rest in quality, attention to detail, craftsmanship, and usefulness. Not one extra ornamental useless add-on. Just great design that gets better the more it is lived in and loved.

Susan Schneider

Terry and his team are amazing! Not only are they fantastic architects. They also know how to interact with people. We worked extensively with Terry, and he was able to listen to both my wife and I – and our, at times, competing for desires. Terry was able to come up with a plan that met our needs. We are so excited about our new home! I cannot say enough positives about our experience with Averill Architects, we were not disappointed!

Joe Bickley

Terry has met all of our expectations with the design of our projects. I am amazed at how skilled he is with the manner in which he prioritizes functionality while not compromising creativity and style. We are so pleased to have the Averill team as a partner on our projects. Terry is simply the best I’ve seen in a while, and we wish his firm much success.

Our property here is Eastport is zoned WME. We completely redid the 100yr old residence and built a 2 story(+mezzanine) maritime commercial building for my yacht interior business.

And… we absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the final results… our little piece of heaven!

Donna Christhilf

Terry has designed and overseen two projects for us: a beautiful 2 car garage with a second-floor one-bedroom apartment and a beautiful new screened porch including seamlessly enclosing the old screen porch to create a wonderful morning room with lots of windows and details to match existing details in our house. Terry is enormously talented with all aspects of design and architecture. He has an excellent staff of professional and talented people. He is capable of listening to you and taking your ideas and creating beautifully designed structures. He is a professional, kind, honest and thoughtful person. He is responsive, punctual and gives an excellent value of superior quality. He is available to come to your site on short term notice to make any minor or not so minor adjustments, changes or suggestions. Terry is quick on his feet and his mind is sharp. He sees every detail down to the last dotted I and crossed T. His attention to detail from the beginning to the end of any project is amazing. His designs are gorgeous. He appreciates the historical context when working in existing neighborhoods. This keeps his designs in harmony with the neighborhood. We have recommended Terry’s services to some of our neighbors, and all have agreed that he has the knowledge, experience and excellent taste to provide superior service from start to finish.

Chuck Mewshaw

We worked with Terry on an addition to a house we purchased. It was a great experience from start to finish. One of the things we appreciated was the way he was able to balance between incorporating our ideas but also guiding us with his knowledge and experience as an architect. If we have another project in the future, we will deafeningly be going to T. Averill Architect.

David Wright

Terry Averill designed updates to our 1905 house in the Historic District. His creative designs gave us a well-functioning, workable home and enhanced its character and charm. Terry’s knowledge of the permitting process and the dictates and requirements of the Annapolis Historic Preservation Commission were invaluable. He and his staff were always a pleasure to work with. We are very happy to recommend him.

The Mersereaus

I am so grateful to Terry Averill for designing an addition to our 1947, 1005-sq-foot home that brought it to 1500-sq feet and added a big kitchen, a pantry, and an upstairs bedroom, full bath, and laundry room. I didn’t think I had the funds to accommodate all that, but he helped identify a builder in my price range – and it all worked out great! I’m a writer, and I took notes during the whole process, thinking I’d write an article about all the things that went wrong. But nothing went wrong. Terry does great work.
