Featured Reviews for Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers

Giulietti Schouten Architects
Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers
Nov 5, 2012
“We're really enjoying working with the Giulietti/Schouten team designing our new beach home. When we were searching for an architect, we looked at portfolios from many firms and were struck by the breadth and creativity of their work. The combination of artistry, creativity, flexibility, practicality, and attention to detail they bring to their work is really impressive, and has resulted in a design much better than we envisioned. It's particularly impressive when the complicated site and extreme environment of our oceanfront setting are taken into account. We're very happy with the project and feel fortunate to have found this great group of people to work with! Follow-on now that the project is finished: Our home turned out beautifully. They were extremely helpful during the construction phase, helping us with the multitude of decisions and working with our builder to assure every detail was as it was envisioned. We were really lucky to have their team to work with! We give them our highest recommendation.”
Blondino Design, Inc.

“Mike Blondino was great to work with! He ensures that your house is exactly what you're looking for and is truly invested in his designs. He does phenomenal work and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to design a house.”
The Design Department, Inc.
Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers
Apr 21, 2015
“Pat did a fantastic job of designing a bump-out for my basement remodel to accommodate the new stairs I had to put in to meet code (very old house). I could not visualize what was going to be done to that part of my home and overall remodel until she walked me through the design, and then ---boom, it hit me! Light, windows, beautiful space utilization and best of all ---it looks like it has always been a part of the house ---does not look like a add-on at all. She was wonderful to work with, listened to what I wanted, and then provided a design to exceed what I thought I could have. She provided great drawings for the contractor and was just really good to work with. I have recommended her to many people and just can't say enough good things about her work and abilities!”
JAMES DIXON ARCHITECT PC
Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers
Jan 15, 2014
“James Dixon Architect PC are helping us transform our 1780 farmhouse and 14-acre site near Millbrook NY with impressive sensitivity to the age of the house and the beauty of its location. They have introduced us to contractors, landscape architects and craftsmen and retained careful oversight of our requirements throughout the process. We recommend them very highly.”
Colab Architecture & Urban Design
Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers
Nov 6, 2018
“If you want the best Portland company has to offer to architect your new home, you have found it! Colab can handle the job, large or small with a big WOW factor!”
Jerome DeMarco ART.chitecture
Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers
Nov 16, 2013
“My wife and I had planned to build a new home for several years and sought out Jerry DeMarco as a designer. Jerry showed us examples of his work, including a style that we really liked. We were at first concerned about the distance between us, Jerry being located in Oregon and my wife and I located in Northern California, but that concern turned out to be a non-issue. Nearly all of our communication was done via telephone and by emailing plans and specifications between us and his studio. Most evenings during the design process my wife and I would review new design ideas and or changes to previous drawings Jerry sent to us via email. We would then write comments and call Jerry to discuss them and new design ideas he wanted us to consider. Very soon after our on-line and telephone meetings, we would have new drawings via email to review. Jerry visited our site a couple of times to get a feel for it, but the rest of the process was accomplished via those two modes. We had some pretty specific ideas about our floor plan and the exterior look of the new home. Jerry helped us through the design and build process. When the plans were finished, Jerry emailed them to a local print shop who printed them for building permits and construction drawings. He also worked with our contractor with design questions during the construction phase. My wife and I had a great time working with Jerry to create the beautiful design and building our new home. Any new custom home design for us will definitely have Jerry's name in the margin.”
Departure l Architecture
Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers
Apr 4, 2015
“Departure came out to our property after the 2013 Build-It-Green tour and talked to us about potential of building an ADU. A year later, we decided to move forward with building an ADU and again, contacted Dan Lajoie. He came out to our property with the notes and ideas discussed the previous year and was willing to spend a long time discussing our hopes for our ADU. He was able to take our ideas and create a beautiful space that works perfectly for us and our property. Throughout the beginning of the process Dan was available to answer our questions, he spent time sharing pictures and showing us ideas as well as meeting with us regularly to look at his progress. He always took our perspective into account and reworked some of the drafts to ensure we were getting what we wanted; but he also had fantastic ideas that we had not thought of and did a great job inserting his personal character into the project. Overall, we have been really impressed with Dan's patience and his ability to turn a small space into something so functional and beautiful.”
Harka Architecture

“Pat is a friendly professional architect. His firm has helped me with a basement remodel, but ncluding a bathroom addition. Very knowledgable about green building and the newest materials. LEED certified.”
Mechanism Architecture
Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers
May 30, 2019
“When our company began considering a remodel of an existing building for our catering production kitchen and tasting room, we immediately became overwhelmed with the potential obstacles of architectural documents, the city permitting process and needing design advice grounded in the current construction trends. Adam jumped right into our project and worked with us on the front end of what our exact needs were (we felt confident in the initial phases of schematics, space planning, finish selections, but lacked knowledge on everything else), and built a process around what we needed. He took the lead when necessary and was gracious when we had preferences and specific desires for our final product. We felt confident with the exhaustive and thorough research he did on the necessary building codes, and he helped usher the plans through the painful permitting steps- he and his team were so fast and responsive when changes needed to be made. Upon breaking ground he continued to remain attentive to our project when on-site questions arose and giving us guidance when unexpected building dilemmas happened (which they always do!). Mechanism completely helped us achieve our vision of a vibrant tasting room and bustling production kitchen out of an empty broken down shell of an old warehouse. He understood our concept of embracing the character of the "old", while infusing the clean, industrial "new". (all photos by Lady & Gent Photography)”
Integrate Architecture & Planning
Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers
Jan 26, 2013
“phil of integrate was amazing to work with: professional and flexible and timely. we hired him after meeting with a handful of other architects. he was above and beyond what we were looking for and he was with us every step of the way on our project journey. we are so lucky we found him and would recommend him highly!”
