Christina was able to help get us started with our dream design of a two single car garage plan under what seemed impossible conditions. We literally were about to start looking for another home. Although the builder needed to use their own architect to get us an affordable price (a one stop shop type company) we really appreciated her help with an idea that would start us on our path to making our dream a reality. They really went above and beyond what you'd expect from a designer and we would highly recommend them for any design work you may need. God bless them for their compassion and we pray for success in all their ventures.

I am a Florida-licensed architect specializing in commercial, municipal, and residential architecture including public-safety facilities, sports facilities, office, and restoration of condominiums. My strengths include design and project team management. I'm interested in the development of all building types and sizes while employing the practice of sustainable design.


Founded in 1987, Design Three Associates offers professional services in all phases of commercial building design and project management. The experience represented by the firm is broad and varied encompassing public, institutional, and private sector clientele. We have completed architectural and interior design projects for national corporate clients such as Oracle Corporation and Metris Corporation, and local-based companies and institutions such as Tupperware Worldwide, Darden Restaurants, Tempus Resorts, and Orange County Government. Our practice is varied and requires us to be knowledgeable in many building types for a variety of client needs. We pride ourselves on the personal attention and quality control we provide on each project under our direction. Most projects have characteristics common to their building type, however each becomes unique as specific needs and goals of the client are addressed. This is where the value of the architects skills and creativity becomes greatest, synthesizing design solutions in a skillfully executed project. It is the goal of Design Three Associates to provide each of our clients with a project that successfully achieves their planning, scheduling, programmatic, esthetic, and economic objectives.


We do design of residential and commercial interior, construction, consulting, and inspection. We have architectural licenses in New York and Florida. We have over thirty years of experience.


I am a licensed architect who will design and travel. I also offer project management and building department review. I still draw on paper or CAD.


We exist to provide clients with the best and finest facilities, be it a residence, an office building or any other commercial business that can be obtained. What do we mean by "best, and finest?" This describes a built environment that does nothing less than elevate the owner or building user to the upper levels of existence, the heights of human consciousness. It is good for the client if he is already high on the level of consciousness, but if the building is well designed, as it should be, it can transport him to even higher levels of human experience. We can give you that. Our objective is to make that a reality.

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.
