Featured Reviews for Alamo, CA Architects and Building Designers

Koch Architects - Joanne Koch
Alamo, CA Architects and Building Designers
January 29, 2014
I just completed a complete remodel of my San Francisco Edwardian flat and build out my basement. Joanne and her staff did a fantastic job. It started out as a kitchen bath remodel, but once the design process started expanded to include every room as we discussed how different spaces would be used and what I didn't like about the current space after living with it for 20yrs. Might as well do it right! Joanne's attention to detail, listening, and high ethical standards are unmatched. She would listen in the meetings and ask questions then come back with some ideas and sketches to get my reaction. She knew what I wanted without me even knowing it. She was also sensitive to the project budget which was important. I was able to complete the project within my budget. She was also key to working with the general contractor. She brought with her experience in projects of my scope / scale and working with different contractors and even her own remodel. This helped immensely. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Koch Architects again.
Gayler Design Build

February 21, 2014
I was brought in as a color consultant on a master bedroom addition project for Gayler Construction. From my first interaction with their manager, Darlene Gayler, I was impressed by the professionalism of the office staff, by their attention to detail, and very clear approach and process to every project. They have high expectations of every participant on a project, have systems in place to ensure tracking and clarity from both the provider and client side. Very few contractors offer a 5 year warranty on their work: Gayler Construction delivers expertise every client can count on.
DOUGLAS A. MCQUILLAN - ARCHITECT
Alamo, CA Architects and Building Designers
March 26, 2013
Doug remodeled and re-built our Cape Cod style house in Lafayette, and did a fabulous job. His design was true to the original style of the house, and yet made a reality of our vision to update and enhance the original. The kitchen was featured on the Lafayette kitchen tour. His detail work is extraordinary. I have heard of design professionals who are difficult to work with, but Doug is the opposite. He was very patient with us, and coordinated well with everyone else on the job (interior designer, contractor, subs). He is very efficient, which means that his fees were extremely reasonable. All the above is why a number of the most elegant homes in Lafayette were done by Doug.
John Newton-Design & Development

John helped plan and did drawings for a small residential renovation. His plans meshed well with seismic design undertaken at the same time. He was helpful in space planning, and drew several alternatives. He shared electronic files (not all architects are willing to do this), which was super helpful.
Mikiten Architecture
Alamo, 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.

Mark Davis Design
Alamo, CA Architects and Building Designers
November 25, 2015
I would highly recommend Mark Davis Design having worked with Mark for over a year on the comprehensive redesign and enlargement of an 1875 house in San Francisco. Architecturally Mark's design was sympathetic to the original historic structure, whilst at the same time being thoroughly modern, rational and considerate of the construction process. Pulling a permit in San Francisco can be a long and frustrating experience, in fact it's probably the most difficult city to deal with in the United States. Thanks to Mark's (and the structural engineer's) efforts we got the project through the labyrinthine process as originally designed and in under a year, which is a great result for a lateral and horizontal addition to a historic structure in SF. Mark was easy to work with at all stages of the process and always produced work and responded to city questions/issues more than promptly. I'd definitely use the firm again.
Impluvium Architecture
Alamo, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 20, 2015
Impluvium listened to my spiritual desires to create a contemporary space that made guests feel instantly welcome while providing function for everyday life. I described a desire that my home subliminally feel like a space where East meets West. Many visitors comment on how "happy", comfortable, and Zen like my home is. Mission accomplished thanks to Tim Haley! The project involved an extensive remodel of my 3 bedroom/2 bath townhouse inclusive of footprint expansions (addition of ~75 sq. ft.), relocation of all plumbing and electrical, removal of demising wall, new windows, doors and skylights, and creative solutions designed to maximize space. In particular, Impluvium not only designed an aesthetically beautiful ceiling in the great room, but it also provides layers of light for multiple uses at all times of the day and night, functionally it is a chase which delivers the in-home sound system and HVAC system, and it masks the new structural beam required when the demising wall was removed. The accuracy and completeness of Impluvium's design and architectural drawings were instrumental in expediting HOA approvals and permits.
CB Architecture + Design
Alamo, CA Architects and Building Designers
April 17, 2015
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.
