I was very hesitant about hiring an architect having never undertaken refurbishing a home & Mr. Romans has helped in a professional & courteous manner. He follows through in a timely manner & will go the extra mile to get the job done...properly. He always follows up with an email or personal telephone call. Most important he listens attentively to meet your needs &answer your questions. Mr. Romans is highly recommended.

I was looking for an architect to design a new home on my piece of property. Nick did an excellent job with the design, drafting the plans, and helping me get the building permit. He also brought a lot of expertise in many areas to the table which opened my eyes and helped a lot. I've been so impressed I'm going to continue working with him on the interior design. His advice and talent are worth it.

Rob was a pleasure to work with. Although the project never really got off the ground, he was actively interested and helpful during the stages that we DID get through.

We are not finished yet. This project may take a year or more. Mr. Deasis is personable and is very helpful when we ask him questions. He is creative and his drawings and sketches, as well as his more formal computer-generated prints are excellent Thanks very much for sending him our way!

We couldn't have been more pleased with the work that Studio Tecnico Architectural did for us! We are remodeling our ranch home to a Mediterranean style - not an easy task! Mr. Ralph Spinelli is extremely knowledgeable about the Mediterranean style. He is very creative and has extensive technical knowledge. We enjoyed working with him - he is quite patient and developed various solutions under we were entirely satisfied. He answered all our questions. Mr. Spinelli did a terrific job for us in both the floor plans and the construction drawings. The resulting house design is lovely and functional, and our builder is very impressed with the technical aspects of his drawings. His pricing is a great value for the high quality work he provides. Having worked with several other architects before working with Mr. Spinelli, we believe Mr. Spinelli's architectural service is among the best in the area. We wholeheartedly recommend Studio Tecnico Architectural.

In these tumultuous times, our clients are calling on us to examine the work from exacting points of view. Issues of overall building size and efficient use of space, energy and materials are of principal importance. We have found that by spending slightly more of our budgets on the sophistication of the building envelope, the windows, the construction methods, the insulation, and the detailing, we can radically reduce the amount of energy required to condition spaces. Clients have always come to us with an appreciation of the beauty of what we do. Now we can offer another layer in the capacity of architecture to influence the quality of our lives. Coupling efficiency with architectural presence would very well describe what our work has become.

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.
