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.

It was a pleasant experience working with Vahid. I needed an architect to help me design a small commercial space and that is when I found Vahid through Thumbtack. We came across a couple of hurdles through the submittal process, however, Vahid was very attentive to my needs and was also very reliable. Overall, I am pleased with the results and glad that Vahid was part my process.

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.

Mahya is a talented designer. Her design for my small and worn out 1970s kitchen is not only lovely, it also exponentially improves functionality. Additionally, Mahya writes well, something that matters to me. It is a pleasure working with her.

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.

Jeff Howe was incredible! He works very hard and is thorough and very smart. I only hired him to review 3 bids I had gotten and help me choose. He read them, choose the best one and explained why it was the best. (He chose the middle bid-- much, much less than the expensive bid-- and he explained why the expensive bid was unnecessary and even shady.) He then wrote up a report on the best bid with improvements for me to ask for and he spoke with the contractors and helped me to get them. If I buy a building in need of a complete remodel or a big design change, I'd hire him in an instant! He was also professional, timely and easy to work with.

I had Jeff do our plans for a new Tattoo shop in an existing building, we had to meet and navigate several ADA requirements with the City of Santa Rosa planning and building department. Jeff was very knowledgeable, competent dealing with the city for us. He is a very Personable Architect who was never too busy to to answer questions for myself, my contractor or my city of santa rosa planning technician. I would recommend Jeff and would not hesitate to use his service again, mo Bernal, Avenue Tattoo, and Anchor Rose Tattoo

Margaret helped us with a home in San Mateo in the last two years. Given our limited space contstraints she did a wonderful job organizing our home. She has a great command of the tooling required to architect and she's able to make changes quickly on the fly and take feedback. She was extremely responsive at all times including at night. Finally, she also was able to deal with the myriad of city complaints and issues and got the permits for construction relatively quickly. Highly reccommend her!

Margaret took over a project in turmoil and turned it around immediately. Her architectural and CAD skills enabled us to meet strict city timelines and guidelines with ease. We would recommend using Oak View Designs.

I needed someone to help draft the plans to for an entire remodel - front / back yard, deck, 3x bathrooms, 1 master bedroom, kitchen and staircase. I found Nils on Thumbtack and was glad that I did. Nils is very knowledgeable, patient and above all, easy to work with. I would choose Nils in the future if I needed drafting work 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 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 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.

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.
