Vahid Khalili is a gentlemen. He provides good service and his price is competitive. I hired him for my home addition project and he provided architectural drawings. He does not provide structural design services. This work is in City of San Ramon. He prompty responded to City's comments. I would hire him again if needed.
My first project on Thumbtack and I was apprehensive and Mahya put all my concerns to rest. She understood my project, gave me feedback on maximizing my construction effort and most importantly was responsive and professional. I have another project planned for next year and Mahya will be my architect. Oh, before I forget, she has a strong network of equally qualified structural engineers and energy consultants. Working with her was an absolute pleasure. I HIGHLY recommend her.
Great person, great service!
The architect came to our first appointment well prepared. He had done research on the property and was well informed about city regulations that affected our suggested designed. His communication style is clear and precise. His first appointment was complementary.
I hired Francisco for a unit expansion project in San Francisco. Building anything in San Francisco can be very challenging and frustrating and you need someone who can navigate the various city agencies and your neighborhood with both calmness and street smarts. Francisco is the guy you want on your side when you run into challenges as he is able to craft solutions and generate consensus. He is very well regarded and has great relationships at the planning department which is critical in getting your plans approved with as few headaches as possible. I would not hesitate to hire him again.
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.
I worked with Ed Kaplan on our bathroom remodel and he was wonderful. Ed listened well to what I wanted and also offered some great ideas. He helped me through every step of the project including coordinating and following up with the contractor to make sure things were being done as planned. Ed is personable, knowledgeable and skilled at his job. He was such a pleasure to work with and our new bathroom is beautiful! I would highly recommend him.
Chris is a good architect and we found him very easy to work with. He listens to what the client is looking for and try to incorporate the ideas into the architectural plan.
Great communication and results.

I offer residential design services, specializing in additions and remodels. A full service is provided, from the initial visit to the design and construction.
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.
