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.

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 !

Adam has a good nature about him. He is willing to help and is easy to work with. Most importantly he listens to your concerns. Has a great background in architecture and very good with contemporary type projects. I have used Adam for both residential & commercial TI's type projects. For both of these types of projects he has nailed the design and satisfied the user. Thanks Adam for your help.

I contacted Bolinger Design regarding previous owners non-permitted work on my house. Bruce went out of his way to ensure a complete set of plans were made, to include all previous changes since original build. Additionally Bruce worked with the planning and permits department to ensure the process went smoothly. Bruce went a step further and coordinated repairs and construction necessary to bring the house into compliance with the engineering firm of my choice. Bruce walked me through the process each step of the way, and answered questions completely when I was unsure of what was involved. I can't say enough how attentive Bruce was to my needs to complete this project that would have been overwhelming to me on my own. I would recommend Bolinger Design to anyone in need of an architect dealing with non-permitted work or otherwise.

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.

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.
