It has been my distinct priviledge to have worked with The Archila Design Group for the better part of three decades and in particular Oscar Archila. I know "Oscar" to be a very creative and thorough Architect; on-time, on budget and consistent high-quality work. Additionally, in the few instances that an RFI (request for additional information) is requested, their response is always prompt. Personally, I find Oscar to be a man of very fine moral character and integrity. I would not hesitate to recommend Oscar and Archila Design Group to anyone.

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.

Rick Covert was responsible for designing and over-seeing construction of my home in St. Croix in 1989 after it was completely devastated by Hurricane Hugo. I had never dealt with an architect or contractor before, and I was extremely impressed with his experience and expertise.

Lisa Moberly of Arkitektura has designed and worked personally for and with us and our friends. We were so impressed with her attention to detail and her understanding of our ideas that we hired her a second time for a complete remodel of our new home. She listens to you and does not impose her ideas on you but will work with you on your decisions for whatever project you are creating. She is professional, fair and stays on schedule. We highly reccommend her for any project.

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.
