Peter was the architect for us on a major renovation we did to our home. He did a phenomenal job and I highly recommend him. He listened to what we wanted, suggested new ideas and worked with us to create exactly what we were looking for. He is extremely detail oriented and was also very patient with all of our questions and comments. We love our home now and owe it all to Peter.

I contacted Manny from Kenneth Irving Architect via Thumbtack. He was one of several architects who responded to my request. Of all of them, he was the only one to offer a free in person consultation to look at the scope of the work to be performed. He promptly got back to me with a quote within a day. He scheduled to return a few days later to perform the necessary measurements. The day before he came, I discovered that I now needed an additional room added to the project. I informed Manny, and he graciously drew up a new proposal with the new work included. He came by on schedule, and did all measurements. Within a week I had all drawings, documents, and applications needed for my renovation project. My experience with Manny was very pleasant, everything went smoothly and his work was done in a very timely manner. Glad I hired Manny for the job, and would highly recommend to others.

    I have know Ed for about 15 years, observing his work over that period on various local projects, but not in need of an architect. This past year I decided to widen my driveway to accommodate the increase of cars to be parked on the property, but was finding many road blocks. Ed researched above and beyond to find a way to help me. Through his knowledge, perseverance and skills, he not only was successful in taking care of our needs, but took the task of working with the Building Department and DPW off my hands. Ed is easy to work with and extremely efficient. I would highly recommend him as an architect.

    Paul helped us rebuild my mother's house after hurricane Sandy. Out of all of the people we hired, Paul was the most attentive and responsive to our needs, from getting through the Building permit process to communicating with the contractors and surveyors, he always made things progress to the next phase quicker. His communication with us and his patient explanations often put us at ease when we were becoming fed up with the build. You'll be doing yourself a great service by hiring Paul Walter for your projects.

    About

    I have studied architecture under Mies van der Rohe and received a post-graduate degree from MIT. I began my career as a designer of projects for one of the two largest firms in Chicago and in 1969 began my own firm - my firm was relocated to Connecticut in 2010. My projects have been built from the Mississippi to the Atlantic winning awards and receiving publication. My specialties are new or added on to buildings that feature openness and light, and historic buildings for restoration, adaptive reuse, and additions.. I love to solve challenges in the most innovative and least costly way that also provide a design that is pleasing to the client. Client satisfaction at the end of the project is more important than any other return.

    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.
