“Thank you for designing a house that is beyond compare.  We are both so grateful.  Again, I love you dearly & will do anything I can to help you to move forward in your career. You are an “einmahler”. In German that means one of a kind. And kind you are as well.”

Homeowner, Los Angeles, CA


“Thank you so much for making me feel so good.  We LOVE our house. We have gotten & are continually getting so much enjoyment out of it. “Here's looking to a lifelong friendship.  You're the best (and I mean it)”

Homeowner, Los Angeles, CA


“Houses as good as this are the product of trust and collaboration. McRitchie believes in shaping each project to the needs and tastes of his client, and he praises Chara Schreyer for giving him a free hand while staying actively involved in the design process.  As an architect who has previously worked as a sculptor and contractor, he understands every part of that process, and how to work with specialists. Empowered by client trust and his design leadership; architect, client, design consultants, and craftsmen collaborated to create a habitable work of art.”

Michael Webb, Author, Los Angeles, CA


“It was a pleasure working with Joe. Joe respects the skills that each project team member brings to the job, ensuring that the finished work goes beyond the client’s expectations. He values the collaborative input of others and incorporates it into the work at hand. And his embrace of technology means that the results always take advantage of the smartest and most up-to-date tools available, which is to his clients best interest.”

“The Museum House you designed is perhaps the most perfectly realized residential construction I’ve ever been involved in. It wasn’t easy, it wasn’t always fun, but it was perfect, and completely gratifying. Thank you! Your design sophistication, construction knowledge, unrelenting perfectionism, and ability to communicate that in the most intimate detail sets you apart. I look forward to even more progressive and iconic work with you.”

Michael Grosswendt, General Contractor, All Coast Construction
