Featured Reviews for Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers

John Lum Architecture, Inc. AIA
Alameda, 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.”
John Barton Architect

“We recommend John without reservation. He was the architect for our remodel several years ago. Many remodels feel very tacked-on. Every one of his remodeling projects felt very organic--they felt like the house was meant to be that way. He not only achieved that with ours but also solved some tough drainage problems on our lot. Years after the project was completed, we still marvel at how well the house works and how well it has handled our changing needs. He is also very professional. He set our expectations regarding cost and timing and met those expectations. Finally he provided great references to a contractor and a designer. We were so impressed, we just hired him again to work on our vacation house.”
Mikiten Architecture
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Aug 30, 2014
“We hired Erick Mikiten as the project architect for a major kitchen remodel and some ancillary work on the entrance porches to the house in 1994/95. We wanted to expand the kitchen, remodel the interior to include new cabinets and an island, provide a new seating area in an addition at the rear of the house, and improve what was then an awkward connection between the kitchen and a rear bedroom. Erick came up with a very creative solution to the space constraints in the existing kitchen that resulted in a much more spacious kitchen with a larger island than we had anticipated. The addition on the rear of the house not only provided a seating area with views into the rear garden that we use on a daily basis, but included a very attractive raised ceiling and exterior architecture that continue to receive admiring comments from friends and visitors almost 20 years later. Erick's firm also recommended a new color scheme for the exterior of the house, which we adopted. Even now, from time to time complete strangers stop by to ask about the specifications of the paint colors because they find it so attractive and are considering doing something similar. Throughout the project Erick made great efforts to understand what we were looking for and present alternative options to achieve this, going through multiple iterations of the design as we refined the concept together, then producing a final design that satisfied our budget constraints. During construction, Erick visited the site on a regular basis and worked closely with the contractor to make sure that the work was being done in conformance with the design.”

“We worked with Alexandra for a rebuild of our home, upgrading it from a 3bd/1.5 bath to a 4bd/3.5bath while adding a second floor and changing the layout of the house dramatically. We chose Alexandra based on two critical expectations: that she would be good to work with (after all, you spend countless hours with your architect on a very expensive project), and that she would share our philosophy regarding the importance of combining form and function in house design. We were very lucky to have chosen her. Alexandra indeed spent countless hours with us. She paid careful attention to our wishes and needs. She worked patiently through every detail of the house, helping us maximize not only our living space but also important functional aspects of the house. From beautifully located and proportioned stairs to storage for kids backpacks under an entryway bench and built-in cabinets to roof segments and their slopes, everything was thoughtful, detailed, and practical. Alexandra also showed great professional and personal skill in navigating the permitting process, developing a good relationship with the city’s planning department that allowed us to enjoy all the benefits of the zoning code. She was always ready to help and mediate successfully when issues inevitably came up with our contractor. She followed through with everything she said she would in an even, friendly, and professional manner. We are delighted with our home and, truth be told, also take joy in the many compliments we get from anybody who visits our home or even passes by it. Alexandra was wonderful and we can’t recommend her highly enough.”

“Consistently refreshing creative architectural designs. William is a unique architect that understands deeply how to create highly functional buildings that are both efficient and gorgeous. Great work and extremely professional. Highly recommend.”
Mahsa Vanaki Studio
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Dec 14, 2018
“I am a licensed General Contractor and I got in contact with Mahsa through a mutual friend. We worked together on a loft remodel that took place over the course of a year and was done in three phases. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Mahsa. Her ideas and vision were excellent; she made herself available in a very timely fashion for any decisions/changes that had to be made and she was flexible when any alterations to the original plans became necessary. I would highly recommend Mahsa for her ability at her work as well as her easy going attitude.”
AAA Architecture
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Aug 16, 2015
“Randy Ruiz of AAA Architecture is a wonderful modernist architect. From a challenging site, he developed an amazing program and modern design, fulfilling our vision for our home. The selection of materials, including walls of glass, CMU block and charred cedar, are thoughtfully blended together resulting in clean lines and warmth throughout. HIs attention to modern detailing tied everything together like a fine Swiss watch. The inside to out relationships expand the living space and accentuate the panoramic views beyond, all while maintaining privacy from neighboring properties.”
Denise Hall Montgomery Architecture
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Jul 19, 2017
“This is the 2nd major project my husband and I have worked with Denise on. The first project, a complete house remodel in Marin County, was in 2003, and we are now (Sept 2017) working on a new home project in the Berkeley Hills. We couldn't be happier with Denise and her team! She is super talented, efficient, and most importantly, a great communicator. She keeps us well informed of the process, timeframe, and budgets. She is also very skilled at handling a creative husband/wife team and what can sometimes be a frustrating process with city planners & contractors. She makes the collaborative process super fun.”
Geoffrey Holton and Associates - GHA
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Oct 24, 2017
“We worked with Geoffrey Holton and Associates on a remodel to transform the majority of the public spaces in our single story ranch home. We really appreciated Geoff's collaborative approach which made us feel like we were a big part of the team, and not just on the receiving end of an architect's vision. We found Geoff's style, thoughtful green design, and knowledge of sustainable building practices to be key to our project's success. Our "collaboration" resulted in a transformation of our cramped, dark, compartmentalized house into an open and inviting modernized home with new and satisfying connections to the outdoors. It was a pleasure working with Geoff and his team and we would not hesitate to work with him again on any project.”
CB Design

“Megan transformed a tired 1960's ranch-style into a beautiful home. We had struggled for many years with how to replace an outdated railing separating a long hallway from the sunken living room. Megan came up with a shelf design that was both beautiful and practical. She turned a dark panelled kitchen into a light, airy heart of the home. Megan brings architectural savvy and a fine attention to detail -- the style and position of every light, the type of plumbing fixture, the loveliest tile and backsplash, the handles on the kitchen cabinets, the most durable and beautiful wood floor. She accompanied us in selecting these items. Most of all, Megan is a great -- and fun!--person to work with. She listens, provides options, is always on time and stays within budget. She helped us develop the criteria for selecting a contractor, assisted us with interviews, all of which enabled us to select a contractor who fit our needs and budget. In summary, Megan is not only a skilled designer, but a highly effective project manager.”
