Featured Reviews for Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers

Studio Bergtraun AIA
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
February 5, 2014
“My wife and I have one of the most beautiful and functional kitchens in all of California thanks to Studio Bergtraun. Somehow, Alex managed to make a 13X13 space into a perfect kitchen for us and we have enjoyed it every day. His creativity and ability to see the big picture is something that we really appreciated. After two years of enjoying our kitchen, we wouldn't change a single thing Alex recommended.”
Saikley Architects
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
May 20, 2015
“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.”
John Barton Architect
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 6, 2014
“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.”
Rebecca Schnier Architecture
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
July 22, 2015
“I highly recommend Rebecca Schnier Architecture. Rebecca has done several projects for us, including a 1000sf upper level addition, kitchen and bathroom remodels. The first project was in 2001 and the last one in 2012. She does beautiful design work that is very functional. She asks questions to be sure she understands her clients needs and taste. She offers design options and always has her clients best interests in mind. She is very creative and resourceful in her use of space. She is a pleasure to work with and delivers beautiful results.”
Ogle Design

“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.”
RaBit Design
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
April 5, 2018
“This team was contracted to do the architectural work on an addition to my home. I sketched out the overall design. Nong listened and offered his suggestions. At the conclusion, his overall design and improvements when far beyond what I had envisioned. He walk through all the paperwork and time needed to get all the permits which allowed me time to take care of the family and talk about the new look. The project is still under construction, but I know my family and I will be happy with what we both (myself and Nong) envisioned.”
Kaplan Architects, AIA
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
September 4, 2012
“After completing multiple projects with Kaplan Architects that went smoothly and with great satisfaction from the clients, I am always pleased to have been such large part of the finished product. Like always, being the GC, I am continuosly wondering from the start of the project what the outcome will be. Kaplan Architect's attention to the smallest of details, from the layout of all of the millwork, to the elegant lighting, every detail has been thought out thouroly, which in the end, makes my job easy. I believe any potential client could not ask for anything more than what Kaplan Architects can accomplish.”
Mahsa Vanaki Studio
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
December 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.”
Well Made
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
September 16, 2019
“Kirill & WellMade were a pleasure to do business and work with. Kirill had great ideas and insights, was very flexible and interested in hearing our ideas and desires and implementing the same. He's a great guy and I recommend him unequivocally! We hired him to create as-builts, design a completely renovated 950 sf basement with bathroom and full service wet bar, a multi-level backyard with bocce ball court, fire pit, bar and deck (which we completed in 2017) and now we're in the middle of a major great room remodel with his help.”
Mikiten Architecture
Alameda, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 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.”
