Mahya was the architect/designer for our house and she has been incredible. She listened to us and took what we told her and made it reality. She found spaces when there was no space. She has brought so much to the project and we're actually friends since she's such a friendly person. We've loved working with her and would highly recommend her skills, personality, professionalism to anyone.

I have worked on many custom furniture projects with Serena over the years, and I feel she's definitely one of the most gifted designers I've ever collaborated with. Her confidence and thoughtful approach to design always result in exciting and refreshing, yet practical spaces. I can't wait for our next project together!

ISO Ideas designed our new home architecture and interior design in the Bay Area. We loved the modern style and customized details. They were very creative, fun to work with and also helped us to meet our budget. Most importantly they were very responsive and responsible to the last detail during construction. We were very grateful for their services.

Jeff is hied by our company at the last minute notice, for a 4 story, 20,000 square foot condominium new construction design project in San Francisco. He is extremely patient and talented, energetic and efficient. I am very impressed with his skill of using the modern technology with all the most updated software, computer aided design tools. That will greatly increase the accuracy and choices, especially in such a complex scale. Jeff is also familiar with all the application process of obtaining planing permit, building permit and conditional use permit. He read PPA and Ruben design committee comments very carefully, implemented line by line, yet in the mean time, watching out for the owner's interest like a lawyer. We have dealed with many big name professionals in San Francisco before we reach this point, Jeff has the skill all in one, and has the unbeatable speed since he is light and mobile, comparing to the cumbersome organization that answers your phone call with a secretary. After we gain the planning permit, we will most likely to continue to heir him for the building permit process, since he is an excellent communicator, to integrate the design with Machanical engineers, civil engineers, structural engineers. We believe he is the one for us.

Christian Bratt is very versed in his abilities. One showing that he is capable of design and engineering the complete process for homes in and around the Lake Tahoe area. Quick response via email and phone call show that he wants to make sure the client or contractor questions or concerns are heard and responded to as quickly as possible to keep each entity working towards the goal of completing the project with the time frame. His outgoing personality makes him a fun guy to work with and i would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great design engineer in the Lake Tahoe area. Jeff Bahrke

I hired Adam to design our home's renovation. We want to turn our one story Victorian into a two story by digging out the basement and raising the house. Adam did a great job listening to us and included all the things we wanted in the new floorplans. He respected the old architecture of our home and neighborhood while incorporating our very modern aesthetic into the design. We're excited to see his plans come to life.

I had a very good experience with Mary last year when she help me design a deck for my house. She is very punctual and put a lot of thought into the design to achieve the look that I was going for and the use for which it was intended. She was reasonably priced and I definitely think I got my money's worth. Also took care of getting the plans passed by the city which took a lot of my headache go away. I would definitely recommend to any one of my friends

I contacted Bolinger Design regarding previous owners non-permitted work on my house. Bruce went out of his way to ensure a complete set of plans were made, to include all previous changes since original build. Additionally Bruce worked with the planning and permits department to ensure the process went smoothly. Bruce went a step further and coordinated repairs and construction necessary to bring the house into compliance with the engineering firm of my choice. Bruce walked me through the process each step of the way, and answered questions completely when I was unsure of what was involved. I can't say enough how attentive Bruce was to my needs to complete this project that would have been overwhelming to me on my own. I would recommend Bolinger Design to anyone in need of an architect dealing with non-permitted work or otherwise.

    For the last three years my wife and I were looking for a way to get more SQFT out of our house, but kept running into extremely high costs of such design. After working with Nick of TradeCraft Architecture, we were able to come up with a great (and creative) design that worked for our family and budget. Nick was great to work with and made the design process ejoyable. Thanks for the great work Nick!

    Excellent design/build shop. They are very good at what they do. You will pay for it, but you also get what you pay for with home remodels.

    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.
