three jobs later, we still turn to Sunny and Ed for design and advice. They are unusually good at hitting the balance among the client's hopes and goals, their creative contributions, and the practical limitations (engineering and budget) of the job. My dad was an architect at a pretty high level, and taught me the difference between architects who are serving their egos vs. the clients. It helps greatly that both came from design-build experience, where the close integration of the architects and those who actually had to carry out the ideas made for perfect feedback between ideas and achievement. They are really people you can trust to work in your interests, and diplomaticaly lead you to understand what your interests are, from among all the possibilities you and they have thought of. This is what I tried for in my own professional life, and what I see in their practice.
I hired Marina for to remodel both my kitchen and downstairs bathroom in June 2014. She impressed me right off the bat by suggesting high impact changes that other designers I consulted with did not, such as raising the ceiling and moving a window to create a larger looking space. Marina ended up doing a great job and for a very good price thanks to her connections with several different contractors that we used and her project management kept her on top of things and prevented wasted time and money. Overall I was really impressed with her start to finish attention to the job and making sure that we had a great remodel.
David helped us turn ideas for a new lodge on our familys cattle ranch into a reality. We started with requirements, concepts and dreams and ended up with a great building that not only accommodates our growing family but fits into a compound containing an 1870s ranch house and hay barn. At the onset, he parked his Airstream on site and spend days developing conceptual drawings, asking for feedback from us several times a day. When he left he had a really good idea of what was needed and we felt sure we had the right architect. Davids process makes him easy to work with: he listens; he takes ownership; he iterates his plans frequently so everyone is on the same page; does what he says he will do; he understands the builders challenges; and is practical and efficient. He uses computer-aided design tools that make it easy to communicate without face-to-face meeting. He had creative ideas to help us get past difficult code requirements. In addition to his design skills he is an artist and has excellent aesthetic judgment. I appreciated that David was willing to argue his recommendations (thoughtfully) but always stated that it was our home and his job to help us get what we wanted. I wholeheartedly recommend David and hope to work with him again. If you work with David, give him his head; he will amaze you.
Stanley is a real find! He and I are just starting our professional relationship, but already I and my team are very impressed with his knowledge base and honest friendly demeanor. sincerely, John Lionheart, general contractor Berkeley Calif lic # 539705
