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

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.

The team is young and energetic. They are so friendly to work with. We were mostly impressed by the high level design quality with reasoble construction cost which was important to us. We appreciated their effort in maximizing value of the property and they are honest with their fees and always transparent with their tasks. we felt they've also saved us so much time and money. Though we didn't agree with Some of the design decisions at the beginning. They carefully explained to us, and we were happy to see the end result they have imagined from the beginning. If you are looking for new ideas and good value, I highly recommended ISO !

If you’re looking to do any rehab work on your home, Ben Tarcher & Associates should be the FIRST architects you should consider! I purchased my first home, a three unit Victorian house (built in 1908), at the end of 2012. The house was a real-fixer up! Notwithstanding its charm and obvious potential, the property was riddled with defects, including the need to (1) build a foundation (as none existed), and (2) completely gut the two downstairs units. Ben completely redesigned the two downstairs units. He provided me with a number of distinct architectural scenarios for using the space. Ben proved to be a fantastic resource. I found him to be extremely professional, creative, and a clear communicator, all qualities I appreciated as a new home owner.

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

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.

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.

Gary Diebel was very professional and responsive. I was not able to use him as the scope of my project change. When I contacted him to move forward he was too busy.

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.
