Featured Reviews for San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers

450 Architects, Inc.
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
Feb 9, 2015
“We hired 450 Architects for an extensive renovation and addition, and have been thrilled with every aspect of working with them. David has designed an outstanding home for us that embodies what we wanted and how we live. Furthermore, every time we have a new idea for something we could do in our home, from holding a workshop or offering a space for a new venture, to hosting a children's playgroup, we find that the space can accommodate these new ideas seamlessly and beautifully. We are also very happy and excited about the relationship of our new house to the outside yard space and the city. 450 also has extensive experience with green building practices, and has done LEED certified projects for schools and other buildings. They are helping us design a Passive House certified home with high levels of insulation and a heat recovery ventilation system to ensure fresh clean air while conserving energy, as well as meeting several other goals such as Net Zero energy consumption. They have also supported us in investigating technologies such as composting toilets for our home, and specifying a greywater system for irrigation. Finally, 450 has worked with our structural engineers to specify additional measures that add only a small premium to construction cost but strengthen the home considerably to reduce possible earthquake damage. Overall, our experience is that 450 is willing to push the envelope of building design and construction, and they are fearless in exploring new technologies. Most importantly, they are wonderful, warm, and highly professional people to work with.”

“Creating a beautiful house that is easy to live in requires commitment and contributions from many people - the architect, owner, contractor, subcontractors, and craftsmen. It truly has to be a team effort. We have worked with Knock Architecture and Design on multiple high-end remodels and renovations. They provide attention to detail and a great working knowledge on all aspects for both the Client and Contractor. We highly recommend this them if you are looking for a redesign, remodel or to built a custom home.”
Wm. F. Holland/Architect
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
Mar 23, 2012
“We spent two years with Bill Holland, the first conceptualizing ideas for a major remodel of our 1916 Craftsman style house, the second in construction. We loved working with Bill and today appreciate his talents as we enjoy living in our evolved home. Bill is a gifted architect – able to visualize the design and construction of a three dimensional space in his mind’s eye, and then communicate his vision to clients in an understandable way. We wanted more openness and access from the rear of our house to our back yard. The result is stunning – truly an indoor/outdoor living space. Upon the completion of our project, Bill and we were honored to win an award from the City of Piedmont for the Best Outdoor Living Area in 2011. ”
Building Solutions

Jul 26, 2013
“I very strongly recommend John at Building Solutions, not only as a design/builder, but a very knowledgeable consultant. First, he handled making a few improvements and repairing some damage in my 1890s house in San Francisco. The quality of the work was top-notch, and his crew even cleaned up and vacuumed every day before they left. Next, we asked him to help us assess houses we were looking to buy. He's an absolute expert at seeing hidden potential problems in a house that no one else would see. He steered us away from some houses that could have had serious issues, and we ended up buying a house that was very well maintained and totally approved by John. That was five and a half years ago, and we're still very pleased with our choice and very grateful to John for his invaluable advice. I can't imagine buying a house without his expert opinion.”
Robert Stiles Architecture
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
Oct 24, 2013
“We have worked with Rob for several years now on a few projects and he always does an amazing job. In addition to being an extremely talented architect, he is very easy to work with. We completely gutted our kitchen and Rob oversaw the entire project while we were away. I had assumed that we would need to hire a kitchen designer along with an architect, but Rob was able to design a beautiful and also incredibly functional kitchen. Having lived with our new kitchen for over 2 years now, there isn't a single thing I would change. He has a great aesthetic and was also extremely helpful in picking out hardware, lighting, and appliances. We have also had him work on the outside of our house and he is currently working on several bedrooms, bathrooms and an office. Rob is very efficient and detail oriented - his drawings are very thorough which always helps make the projects go smoothly.”
John Lum Architecture, Inc. AIA
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
Apr 3, 2011
“We used John Lum Architecture for the complete remodel of ~1000 sq ft in San Francisco. John and team were fantastic to work with. Very creative yet good at listening to our thoughts and integrating our ideas. They understand how to both design a gorgeous contemporary space while still keeping it comfortable and livable. We depended on them with a lot of design detail recommendations such as fixtures, paint, tiles and they always had great suggestions that made the process much simpler and easy to manage. They are very professional, extremely responsive and timely. There were no surprises during the entire process including on deadlines and budgets. I would strongly recommend them.”
Worthington Architecture + Design
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
Sep 26, 2014
“Kurt planned and managed improvements to a condo (2004-2005) that I purchased in Oakland upon first moving to the Bay area. Several years later I happily hired him again to manage the renovation of my new husband's Stanford home (2008). This involved significant changes to a five-bedroom home, ranging from changing the footprint to adding clerestory windows and a new roof line to planning all new bathrooms, kitchen, seismic upgrades, etc. Essentially the house was gutted. Kurt was creative, thoughtful, and professional. Thanks to his work and a fine contractor, my husband and I continue to enjoy our home every day. And visitors, even those who have been here repeatedly, comment on the wonderful ambiance.”
Tierney Conner Architecture
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
Dec 12, 2015
“We completed a major project with Tierney Conner and renovated half our home in the Oakland Hills. Let me just say...AMAZING! The project resulted in an outstanding design that really captured our tastes and lifestyle beyond what we could have imagined. They solved our most challenging problems, provided perfect function and increased the value of our home by 65% when appraised by our real estate agent. They are talented, practical and creative experts who ensured the vision came to life. Their diligent focus and continual involvement with the contractors ensured all details and plans were executed properly. They brought in light where you never expected, created indoor/outdoor living, choose the yummiest finishes, and offered true wow moments. And we so appreciated their advice on where to spend and where to save for the best value and impact. What I most appreciated about Tierney Conner is they blend architecture, design and landscape all in one giving me an easy integrated solution. TC is a true pleasure to work with at every level!”

“We had an excellent experience working with Michele, Mark and the team at zumaooh. They were truly professional and gracious. They respected our style and yet pushed it to be better. We were really happy with the number of options they brought us for things like lighting and paint colors. Never too many but still enough to have real choice. In the end, the house looked phenomenal! We're super happy with how the work turned out!”
Dotter & Solfjeld Architecture + Design
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
Nov 1, 2012
“We worked with Dotter & Solfjeld most recently to design an Italian villa on a hillside in Saratoga, CA. This was actually our third project together as they worked on an expansion and remodel of our previous house in Palo Alto as well. As soon as we bought the lot in Saratoga Russ and Wencke, of D&S, began studying the landscape, spending significant time at different points in the day to intimately understand the light, the views and the flow of the hillside. Russ and Wencke are experts at both exterior and interior architecture and design, and they are an amazing team! Once they felt they knew the property, they spent time with us to understand what we liked and disliked and then began designing our house based largely on Italian building principles of thick walls and simple, yet elegant, construction. D&S involved us in every step of the process and ensured we were completely comfortable with each phase of the design before moving forward. They totally went above and beyond the call of duty by diligently working with our planning department and even one neighbor. They were our advocates with the City and were clearly extremely well respected by everybody they interfaced with. During the building process, D&S worked closely with our contractor and foreman to ensure that the project ran smoothly and stayed on budget. Often times, there is tension between architects and contractors, but our contractor loved working with D&S. Some of our friends have also used D&S to design ultra modern homes...D&S is super versatile and we unequivocally and enthusiastically recommend them.”
