Archwork provides brilliant architectural services and much-needed project management. When I bought my fixer home, I decided to again engage their services after having a successful experience with a prior home. Although I was confident with my home purchase, I had little idea of the architectural solution. They consulted with me to gain an understanding of my goals before going to work -- budget, living needs, design/style preference and return on investment. It was truly a collaborative effort. Even through some expected design disagreements, we were able to reach solutions that satisfied both of us. Thankfully, they were never willing to compromise design integrity. As for the final product, I couldn't be happier. The design for maximizing the usable space and value of my home was spot on. I know it was a difficult challenge to retrofit new construction into the existing structure, but they succeeded in creating a seamless solution.

My husband and I are currently working with Quentin on doing an ADU in Santa Barbara. We have found his designs, ideas, very professional and in line with what we are wanting to do. Due to our tight schedule and budget he has been able to not only get us draft drawings to review but has been available for revisions and calls whenever we need to speak. We are very excited about continuing our project with him and are confident that he can help us stay within our budget with giving us more than what we need.

I am so fortunate to have chosen Archwork to draw my plan for a guest house. Quintin has presented several plans with different layouts so I had a nice choice. He's been to the county several times on my behalf and also made phone calls to other people involved with the necessary items that needed technical answers. Quintin has taken the guess work out of the project and has answered all my questions. I feel very at ease with him and his expertise. I am so looking forward to the beginning of the building of the guest house.

Quentin is by the far the best architect that we have ever encountered. We are currently trying to get a conditional use permit from the city of Irvine, and he has been with us every step of the way. Thanks Quentin for your hardwork!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I run an efficient BUSINESS, and yes, it is for profit. If you’d like a discount look for plans on the internet, please. A simple fee, as retainer - then usually 10-15% of total project construction costs for comprehensive architect services through the entire build process, which includes construction and project management services.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, a flat fee service to define scope of work, design and cost (budget)- then we provide a comprehensive architect/Client contract, based on your work and design.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Harvard graduate, Master in Architecture, 1980 Batchelor of Design in Environmental Design Magna cum Laude, NCSU School of Design , 1977 General Sustainability in Architecture, Alfred Browning Parker, FAIA, 1972-1984 Green Design courses , Pierce College AIA CEC AND LEED courses & lectures
