Gesnel expanded and reframed our closet and then installed an IKEA module in the space. He was always very professional and quick to respond. We trusted him to work in our home while we were away on vacation and do not regret this decision. He sent frequent emails with pictures of the work and kept us informed with any concerns he may have. He also cleaned pretty thoroughly after completing the project. We plan to hire him for future construction projects in our home.

I am a interior designer in New York. I hired Innovators to renovate a one bedroom for a client in a top co-op building in NYC. The building had strict guidelines for any alterations. Edward and his crew were very careful to follow the building regulations and rules which is very important when working on many of the buildings in NY. Innovators has a great pull of skilled workmen and sub contractors. Many of his workers are multi-skilled and professional. We are at the end of the renovations and are please with the outcome. We will use Innovators again in future projects. Giselle Ulmo Giselle Ulmo Design

Working with Tokarski Millemann over the past two years as my wife and I have been planning to build our dream home has been life changing. Rick Tokarski is a highly talented architect and has become a dear friend and my "spiritual guide" through this exciting, but difficult process. His knowledge of every aspect from design, planning, and building expertise is truly unmatched. He has an invested interest in seeing this project through to it's completion. We build our first home 25 years ago and it was a trying ordeal. Having Rick and his team by our side on this latest endeavor has felt like a 'Walk in the park". If you plan on hiring an architectural firm, in my opinion look no further.

We recently contacted Jock for a crisis situation regarding permits and other DOB rules for an apartment that we are renovating. Our coop board, building management company, and the building architects gave us bad information and put us and our renovation in severe financial jeopardy. Jock was great. He responded immediately to emails, phone calls, and showed up the next day to get moving on having our issues resolved. He is knowledgable (and generous with that knowledge), efficient, on top of his game, professional and good humored. His analysis of the situation and strategy is saving us. He also successfully dealt with the malevolent idiot building manager who had to give an approval. Jock may also help us with some layout improvements. We're so glad we found and hired him!

We hired Russell at Design R Architects to design our dental office in Stamford and have found him to be easy to work with, thorough with his responses and knowledgeable with commercial interior architecture and design. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a good designer with experience that charges a fair price.

Imagine for a minute arriving in the trawling metropolis of New York City with only three suitcases and a box. You immediately start work and then spend every other waking moment over days, weeks and perhaps months hunting down your perfect apartment only then faced with moving into a white box. Time poor, and faced with the interior design skills of a fifth grader, what do you do? Of course you begin your research online but very soon become absolutely inundated with the plethora of options available: Everything from complete turnkey services for the cost of an arm and two legs to the other extreme where you upload floor plans and without any consultation you’re provided with a list of items you need to purchase and not really sure it’s the look you’re going for in a space you want to call home . Then you find Joe from Designs by Human. Joe provided the perfect balance between complete turn key and internet email; a personalized Human approach just as his namesake suggests. With his consultative style Joe met with me and spent time understanding what I was looking for: A warm design and a space that would feel like home — likely a tough ask (just imagine a typical New York apartment and a design that accommodates a place for overseas guest, a space to entertain and a place to work from home) and a client (me) who’s likes to get involved and is hands on. But Joe with his incredible patience absolutely nailed it. An amazing design in such a small space filled with interesting artistic elements and features integrated throughout my home. It feels warm and personalized incorporating elements of “me”, is complimented by my guests, and is certainly something that I’d never have managed to accomplish by myself. So if you're looking for someone to help with your own project I'd really recommend getting in touch with Joe from Designs by Human. Thanks Joe. I’m really glad we met and thanks for all your help!

We asked Daniel to help with the design, and construction, and permits for a music video production space. Daniel and his team were super responsive and great to collaborate with. They generated a 3d model and construction details in just a few days, and just 3 weeks later we had a fully finished video set. Daniel personally visited the site to ensure that everything was built according to the drawings and was able to improvise solutions in the field. We will happily work with DEMO Architecture again in the future!

Neil has been incredible. He had a great vision for our space both in terms of layout and design and we couldn't have been happier with his work. He has been very responsive and professional throughout our project and he does really great work. We had selected our own contractor, which came back to bite us as but Neil helped us find a new contractor and made sure that all of the required permits were filed and ready to go. I would recommend Neil in a heartbeat and has made an extremely stressful renovation a lot less stressful!

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.
