Introduction: We stand out for three reasons: 1. qualifications (ArCH, AIA, MBA, NCARB, LEED AP), 2. Experience (40+ years), 3. We LISTEN (might be the most important thing we do). Every project is a new challenge and I love developing creative solutions to unique problems. Architecture is a bit like an adult version of doing complex puzzles - only ours are three dimensional and have the addition of needing to solve simultaneous equations including structure, site, legal, zoning, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, budgets, schedules, other professional consultants, owner needs/wants, and aesthetic considerations. I also get to meet new clients, most of whom end up being life-long friends.

Great Service. Kevin knows his profession and explains everything in detail, provides great suggestions and feedback. In short, Kevin is awesome. Plans took about a week. I am happy with the results so far. Plans have been submitted to the city and I hope all was done correctly and expect everything to work out. Definitely Recommend them.

After my home inspection I had some concerns regarding the structure. I hired John to take a look at the home and give his expert opinion. He not only did a great job at that but went above and beyond and took a look at many other pain points I had from the initial report. He also spoke directly with the home owner regarding some repairs that should be made and instructed how the home owner could do so. The home owner ended up repairing the items John recommended saving me time and hassle in the future. Extremely impressed with John's work and would highly, highly recommend.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing - its not about price - its about value - its about your rate of return on design. Will your property be worth more than the sum of its parts? If well designed, yes. Do better detailed architectural designs result in more competitive construction numbers? Absolutely. It'll cost the same amount in construction to build an ugly project as to build an exciting one. Architect's fees are typically less than the contractor's contingency line item and yet we leverage your bigger dollars of construction, maintenance, and energy consumption.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We always start with a Needs and Options Review or Initial Site. Low cost, no commitment. You are listened to attentively. You get feedback from us for clarity as, together, we help you define the target. You get an analysis of existing conditions and challenges/opportunities involved with the project. You learn about various project delivery systems (there is no one size/fits all) and gain some perspective on probable construction costs. $500 - credited to your project should you decide to proceed with us. $350 for Thumbtack clients. (within our geography)

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Education and training - love that question as I am also an adjunct professor of architecture and education matters. Me? In addition to being a licensed architect in several states, NCARB (national council of architectural review boards), ArCH (Architects Creating Homes), AIA (American Institute of Architects, Emeritus), LEED (leadership in environmental and energy saving design), MBA in finance, author, speaker nationally and internationally, international awards. Greatest accomplishment to date? Ten grandkids!
