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.

Most Architects I worked with in the past take long time to finish the job. Amy was on top of it from the beginning. I needed good quality and time was of the essence. The job was done in timely manner.

The architectural firm “C2C Design and Construction, LLC,” i.e., Len Gallo is a prime example of a business well run. Timelines created are strictly followed and progress/productivity never falters. One of the key characteristics I like about Len besides his obvious design capabilities was his willingness to listen to my ideas, questions and offer straight forward answers, compliments on my ideas, and if needed, constructive criticism. As this was my first endeavor with having a home reconstructed, I found Len to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable in walking me through all the requirements of where I live and what submissions needed to be done and when. Most of all, it was refreshing to reach out and have someone reply in a timely manner. Len met all the expectations he promised when the contract was signed and even now, that the job is done I would not hesitate to reach out to him with any questions knowing he would still be available and ready to answer. The biggest compliment I could give would be to say if I had to do this complete house lift and renovation again, I would still choose Len as my architect.

This was the first time I had to use an architect for a residential addition. I was not sure what to expect. My friend recommended Oscar (OMJ Design). First I must say that he and his staff were very professional. They explained the construction process in detail. I know that I must of ask them more than 1,000,000 questions but they were happy to answer them. If you are thinking of hiring him, don't think twice. You won't regret it. I would definitely use them again.

I own a three family residence in Staten Island. I had violations on my property from a previous owner that i would literally loose sleep over. In order to dismiss these violations, i had to legalize my Certificate of Occupancy. I was miraculously referred to them by a colleague of mine. Calling Morali Architects was the best thing i did. Withing a year, i had no more violations and an amended Certificate of Occupancy. They obtained my city approval fast and were extremely responsive and customer friendly. They also gave us design tips for our interior layout and fixtures to improve the quality of my property. I would highly recommend Morali for any property owner.

John is a highly skilled professional that treated my small project as though it were the ONLY project in the Universe. His professionalism, genuineness, accuracy, and attention to detail were more than I hoped to expect from any professional. I had a true "Fountainhead" moment.

I would like to start off by saying that I couldn't be more thrilled to see Jerald Vahn Willis Designs receive the recognition it so rightfully deserves. Over the years, I have worked with a couple of well-known designers and architects who have had established businesses for 30 + years and being that Jerald Vahn Willis Designs is a younger company, I was initially hesitant for that very reason. He came highly recommended through a friend and after seeing his work, I was immediately sold. He is extremely innovative and has one of the most sophisticated eyes for design that I've ever come across. Now, a few years later, I have worked on three projects with Jerald, a large formal home in the city, a beach house and a home for my son and daughter while they attended the university. I mention this because each residence is used for a completely different purpose and required their own specific scope of work and design sensibility. While one project required a complete restoration involving special wall treatments, space planning, structural changes, rare antiques, engineering, an art collection installation and document fabrics, another project was less formal and called for child/animal friendly and budget conscious fabrics and furnishings that could withstand the test of time. Jerald is extremely talented, but another benefit we found is that he's also very organized and efficient. Should it be necessary for your project to be done in stages, he is an expert in prioritizing what needs to be accomplished right now and what can wait. He was able to provide us with such beautiful renderings, which really helped us visualize the space and though the process was never rushed, it helped us in making decisions. He is very knowledgeable, resourceful, highly gifted, down to earth and was truly a joy to work with. He made the process fun and once we completed our projects, we were sad it was over! He is truly a breath of fresh air and we are excited to work on future projects and see Jerald Vahn Willis Designs continue to flourish. If you hire Jerald, you will be glad you did.

It was a pleasure to work with 43hundred architects. Mrs Nadine and Ms Magda are both, detail oriented, thoughtful, reliable and incredibly talented. Best costumer service! We hired them for a remodeling of our new house. They provided not only the professional design and concepts but also willingness to listen with patience and courtesy. I will definitely recommend them to family and friends!

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..

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.
