“In choosing an architect to guide Knollwood Country Club through a historical restoration and Master Plan we were very particular in interviewing candidates.  We were seeking an individual that would be a source of sound judgment, well researched, thoughtful and an overall asset to the club.  After interviewing several candidates, Ian Andrew was our choice. Ian has surpassed all of our expectations and has been an amazing resource for the club.


 We have all been impressed with Ian’s dedication in researching the clubs history/aerial photographs, interviewing members and repeatedly walking the course to truly understand our needs.  Ian has combined these efforts to produce a Master Plan that everyone at Knollwood is proud of and we look forward to a long and productive relationship.”
