Chun-Fa is a very organized and thorough architecture & design professional. I would highly recommend him. The quality of his work is excellent and his attention to detail is superior. He is the type of individual that will not be satisfied unless he has exceeded your expectations and performed on the highest level. That takes a lot of the worry away from a project or renovation where there are always obstacles to overcome. He is a problem solver!

Jeff did a great job converting our dated, 850 sq ft 1949 bungalow into a modern, 1300 sq ft open floorplan with tons of natural light, plus turning a small bedroom into a large master suite with a huge walk-in closet (my favorite!). We're grateful everyday that he convinced us to add a second full bath, rather than just enlarging the only existing bath. There was some friction between architect and contractor, but we suppose that's to be expected on a *major* reno like ours. These photos are before & afters - it's hard to believe they are the same views of the same house! Thanks, Jeff

About

I graduated in architecture at the Polytechnic of Milan and I have experience as an interior designer. In fact, I worked at a major furniture store in which I was responsible for the management of the whole process of interior design. I learned to draw near with different types of customers, manage employees and coordinate them for the construction of public and private environments, so I developed good organizational skills. I learned to manage orders and to work independently, as well as in a team. I know very well the major design programs -- both 2D and 3D and rendering programs. I am available immediately, in possession of VAT, and I am inclined to transfer if necessary.

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.
