Vahid drew a plan that I later took to the San Francisco city department of building inspection and from the first try, changes to the apartment that we were planning to remodel had been approved. That tells me that Vahid is an architect who knows exactly what he is doing. He has printed 4 copies of the plan even though San Francisco department of building inspection requires only 2 copies. All 4 copies have been included into a price. I am definitely his client if I ever will need architectural plans drawn again in the future.

I have worked with Michael on multiple projects over the last 25 years, with outstanding results. Michael is skilled, honest, diligent and reliable. He has extraordinary experience running jobs with the highest level of expense and finish (e.g., Greene Brothers quality residential work), but my work with him has been on more modest residential remodels. I can recommend Michael without reservation. Rob

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.

This is the first time I used Bay Area Design Solutions and I'm very please with their service and promptness. Yohan is very professional from the start to finish. He responds quickly when I need something. He was always on time and was able to delivered what he promised. I can highly recommend him and will definitely hire him again on my next listing.

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.

​OpenBay Design designed a large addition with 1 new story in my multi-family rental building. I was very satisfied with the process and was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it all went. The team was knowledgeable in code and permit requirements, thoughtful in the design, personable and easy to work with. I have recommended this firm to others looking to renovate or build new residential (houses or multi-units) and commercial spaces and buildings. - Satisfied building owner, Oakland

Choose Odd Job Home Maintenance! I contacted them for some yard work, but they have vast experience. They grouted a bathroom...it looks great. They painted a fence...well done. They also planted and trimmed trees. My patio looks fresh and sunny.

I retained Mr. McDonald to re design an apartment building in the San Francisco Marina District which was built in 1928. The mandate was to preserve the building's period charm; yet increased the living area. The suggestions were relatively simple and he was able to enlarge both the kitchen and bathroom without changing the envelope of the building............and all the work was done with permits which is very complicated in San Francisco! His services were the cheapest money I ever spent and enhanced the rental value of the units.

About

Below is a summary of my educational background: * Master of Architecture, University of California, Berkeley, 1971 * Bachelor of Science in Psychology, University of Wisconsin, Madison, 1967 * Intern and Guide, Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, Oak Park, 1964 * Oak Park and River Forest High School, Oak Park, Illinois, 1963 I offer full design services which include site planning, schematic design, design development, construction drawings and services related to construction. My projects range in size from kitchens and baths to whole-house remodels including additions and new houses. Most are within the Bay Area, and most of these are within San Francisco itself, where I live. I usually do not accept work outside these areas. I have had over thirty years of experience working on design solutions that, first and most importantly, please my clients but which are, secondly, well received by the close-by neighbors, which is a key to thirdly, easier and faster acceptance by San Francisco's planning department (including the zoning administrator, in case a variance is involved). Although I have had a very high percentage of variance applications for clients that are approved, I also try to design to avoid having a variance be necessary, avoiding variances when possible. I am happy to explain more, show previous projects, etc. at an initial meeting at no charge. My clients appreciate how my designs can be either traditional (more contextual) or modern, depending on the context. My designs tend to mature into built projects that have manners and which are gracious good neighbors which co-exist easily with other older nearby houses. They have also been characterized as having curb appeal and are usually well received by neighbors for that very reason. A historic prototype is often helpful in grounding a design and instilling it with historic precedent as well as enhancing its wider appeal. On the interiors, I strive for light-filled and volume spaces, the use of materials including wood, synthetic stones and veneer plaster, and reasonably sized kitchens and baths. Lately, I have been designing green solutions using photovoltaic panels on the roofs and, if south facing, rear elevations in steel and glass, not being as restricted there nearly so much at the front, usually the public or street side, of the design.
