Architectural Concepts is the firm that covers all of your architecture, design, and planning needs, no matter the size of your project. With over 45 years of experience in the industry and over 750 projects completed, we have developed a working philosophy that has been the foundation of our success. We pay close attention to our client's needs and keep their goals in mind. Our Philosophy: Our firm believes that the roles of the architect, planner, and interior designer go far beyond design and project coordination. We spend the time necessary for a complete project including coordination with the owner's consultants and governmental agencies, reviewing energy requirements, reviewing building and zoning laws, and preparing construction contracts. In addition, we can assist in the selection of contractors, make site inspections, and solve construction problems. Our Promise: Our firm emphasizes timely service and personal attention to each client's needs and goals. We believe in a strong, comprehensive, and interactive working relationship with each client. Open communication is the key to a good working relationship and a successful project. Our successful track record underscores the importance of listening to our client's concerns, understanding our client's needs and budget, and incorporating our client's ideas into the overall project. Our experience is a valuable resource for our clients in the areas of design, cost evaluation, time management, and quality control for each phase of the project. Our Experience: Experience has taught us that behind every successful project is a great working relationship with our clients. In this way, working with the selected design team, the client's needs melded with the designer's views to produce a completed project tailored to each client's goals. This process produces projects that are meaningful, achieve their goals, and strive for overall excellence in design and construction. This end result is achieved through a series of working sessions at the start of the project to establish the scope of work, the character of the design appearance, the overall budget, and the project schedule. This process establishes the project cost, time frame, and quality level to be maintained throughout the project.

*Authorized Dura Supreme Cabinetry* *Authorized Canyon Creek Cabinetry* We work with homeowners who are busy professionals working long days or running their kids to multiple activities and don't have hours to spend in showrooms. They have tried working with architects and are overwhelmed when they are sent to select materials on their own or they are frustrated when they can't read their drawings or visualize their new kitchen and bath remodel. Usually they are trying to make responsible investment decisions but are secretly worried they may make choices they decide they don’t like until it is too late. We typically work with people who live in Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Kensington, Lafayette, Oakland, Piedmont, San Francisco, and Walnut Creek.

Based in Berkeley, Husband and wife team Erick and Elisa Mikiten have been creating beautiful buildings since 1991. Our work is inspired by context and nature, creating innovative spaces and sculptural, inspiring buildings. Above all, we listen carefully to our clients' needs and dreams, and bring them to fruition. Copy/Paste this URL into your browser for our free guide, How to Hire an Architect: <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.mikitenarch.com/resources.html">http://www.mikitenarch.com/resources.html</a>. Erick Mikiten is known as a highly sought after architect for elegant, Universally Designed homes. He is famous for his expertise in designing highly personalized homes around a whole family’s needs without sacrificing poetic, dramatic design. We examine a site or existing building intensively to understand it before we start drawing. This helps us design buildings that are rooted in their place and 'feel right', even if they do not follow the dictums of a particular historical design. We are inspired by clarity, intricacy, and light. We love the brilliant gestures of Rodin and Calder, the sophisticated detail of Japanese joinery, the writings of Louis Kahn, the buildings of Alvar Aalto, Louis Kahn, and Luis Barragan, and the movement of the sun and breezes around every site we work on. We believe that architecture should inspire, and lift people beyond the every day, connecting with the grace of nature. Every project we do incorporates green design, reflecting our respect for nature. We are able to usher projects through LEED or other rating systems if desired by the client. Our Shinsei Gardens project achieved a LEED-Platinum rating for multifamily housing. As a wheelchair rider, Erick Mikiten has particular insights into Universal Design, the creation of spaces, indoors and outdoors, that are fully usable by everyone - regardless of their level of physical ability, and seamlessly integrated into beautiful architecture. Due to the level of inspection around so many clients' particular disabilities, we naturally look deeper into EVERY client's needs and desires. The process we have developed, and the insights we have gained while working on accessible architecture come around to inform every project, making places that are gracious, nurturing, and welcoming to all.
