Reza is outstanding in every way!! He took over a project from another Architect for us who couldn't provide the City of Santa Monica what they needed to issue a permit for many months, so we were stuck. Reza was quick efficient and worked through the issues diligently, so that we received the permit within a few weeks after we hired him. Reza is very professional, and we will ask him to work with us on all future projects in California. We will recommend Reza to all our friends and business associates. Reza provides very good and very fair value, he is very honest and efficient. We are thrilled to have found him on Thumbtack!!

Blair has been great. We are lucky to be able to work with someone so professional and responsive. You will not find such a responsive architect on his level without spending 4-6x the price. Thank you!

Roland and Yukie did a phenomenal job - we were on a tight schedule and needed to take an empty roughly 2000 square foot space and transform it into a furniture showroom for our company and hired Scales Lab Architects to manage the project completely - they did a great job in analyzing our brand and presenting us with a layout that they felt would be best for the showroom, while also acting as construction managers and hiring contractors from their professional network to carry out the vision impeccably. Their professionalism, diligence and positive attitude made Scales Lab Architects a pleasure to work with from start to finish and we couldn't ask for a better final product with our showroom.

After the first meeting and explaining to the architect what I wanted with a simple, yet functional patio cover, he took the concept and presented the plans, ready to have the city's approval. It is very nice to work with people that show skin the game.

Verified review

Stan responded to my Thumbtack solicitation for a brewery-distillery in the Los Angeles area. Stan was communicative, prompt, professional, and provided a very reasonable rate. He also went above and beyond his call of duty, as several of our real estate deals fell through, and Stan did not charge for extra time / trips to accommodate this misfortune. He also took time to meet with me and work on the project when most others would be "off the clock." Stan is a great find. He has continuously been a source of strength and support on my project, which was completed in a swift and excellent manner. I highly recommend him!

    About

    We take architecture as a psychological issue - the piece of land, an edifice or a structure as being utilized the same way it should create certain emotions to the viewer, mentally connecting it with the state of sculptural expression. Our design work is based on extensive brainstorming, where depending on the type of client, category building, materials chosen, landscaping, and urban attitude a particular process methodology is implemented. Each project is approached with its own specificity, uniqueness, and the process of designing is the one which brings to it its own architectural handwriting. In the Studio 3D, different computer software allow exploring in very depth each detail and not a little corner is left without being carefully studied. We thoroughly believe also in the sustainable design philosophy that this is the future where architecture goes, and we stay firmly behind it. The sustainable architectural design has to go hand by hand with renewable energy, and give a better future for the next generation. The project budgeting and value analysis are looked under scrutiny to be able to lower the cost as much as possible, without compromising the quality of the design in both highly-competitive private and cost conscious government sectors. Working tightly with cost estimators and surveyors, the office takes it with main responsibility that the project is executed precisely, within the budget, and in the time frame.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do architects work?

    Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

    When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

    How do architects charge for their services?

    According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.
