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.

Working with Ray was great, he was very professional and courteous. He took the time to understand what we needed and wanted in building a new master bedroom with a full bath plus and extra 1/4 bath and laundry space. Ray produced very detailed plans and met with the city 3 to 4 times in order to satisfy their requirements. He always arrived on time, to our appointed meeting times. We found that the pricing that Ray charged was very reasonable. He was not the lease expensive quoted through Thumtack, but we feel it definitely was the best value. I would highly recommend Ray to my family and friends who may need architectural services.

Had a difficult siding project, too small for the big shops to touch. Not only did John do a wonderful job, he also added a few little architectural details that really make the project pop.

Roksalana is simply amazing from first contact.. she is such a find and I plan on keeping her beyond the scope of the work. Her professionalism, punctuality, value was wayyyyy better then the others that responded to my post. She did the impossible and completed an entire Architectural plan in 2 days. She also helped us save a lot of money with her funds..

About

We want to establish ourselves here as we did in the Bay Area as one of the top Remodel/ Room addition Designers. Being relatively new here in SoCal, We hope to establish trust with great value and no stress by using my transparent system of design practice. My name is Shon Tinsley; have an AS Degree in Mechanical CAD, a Architectural Diploma, with over 15 years of experience in remodels and room additions. Currently working in the Defense Industry and have held a security clearance for 10 year and in the process of renewing. I love helping people realize their visions and making affordable upgrades to their homes and businesses. My reputation is everything to me and I would like to build on mine here in southern Cali as I have in the past up in Northern Cali where I was born and raised. My Associates and I have lived here for 8 years and finally have the chance to re-enter my first chosen profession of Architectural designs. We also love the innovation of 3D modeling for mechanical prototypes and designs as well! Some say we are more detailed than I need to be but; we believe that is an asset and beneficial for our customers. We will work for less money and more brand recognition to build the trust and reputation that will pay off in the near future for our families. So take advantage while we are still fresh in the Southern Cali area and building my brand. Innovative & Architectural Design Models. Thank you for your consideration please contact us and leave your contact information for jobs in Southern California.

Diane has done a whole home remodel for my family in the early 1990s and a 1000 sq. foot separate building on a different property in about 2012. She is a good listener when it comes to understanding the clients needs. Her understanding of how a space will be used is clearly reflected in her modern designs. She has a tremendous attention to modern detail, and supervised the construction to ensure compliance with her design. I was very pleased with the finished results on both projects and enjoy living in these spaces. She has excellent skills on state of the art architectural CAD software that allows her to create very detailed plans and specifications. This is critical during both the bid and construction phases. She has a depth of knowledge regarding building materials and finishes that help to create a coherent aesthetic design. She is LEED certified and sustainable development is clearly part of her philosophy, Her services include construction observation as part of the fee and it is well worth it. She is on site making sure the construction is per specification and correctly detailed. I can't emphasize how important that is. She is a true professional and a joy to work with. I recommend her without hesitation.

About

Focused on modern and contemporary architecture and design.

About

We take architecture as a psychological issue - the piece of land, an edifice or a structure as being utilized the same way it should create certain emotions to the viewer, mentally connecting it with the state of sculptural expression. Our design work is based on extensive brainstorming, where depending on the type of client, category building, materials chosen, landscaping, and urban attitude a particular process methodology is implemented. Each project is approached with its own specificity, uniqueness, and the process of designing is the one which brings to it its own architectural handwriting. In the Studio 3D, different computer software allow exploring in very depth each detail and not a little corner is left without being carefully studied. We thoroughly believe also in the sustainable design philosophy that this is the future where architecture goes, and we stay firmly behind it. The sustainable architectural design has to go hand by hand with renewable energy, and give a better future for the next generation. The project budgeting and value analysis are looked under scrutiny to be able to lower the cost as much as possible, without compromising the quality of the design in both highly-competitive private and cost conscious government sectors. Working tightly with cost estimators and surveyors, the office takes it with main responsibility that the project is executed precisely, within the budget, and in the time frame.

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.
