Featured Reviews for Alto, CA Architects and Building Designers

Holder Parlette Architecture + Landscapes
Alto, CA Architects and Building Designers
June 2, 2016
Kenneth is a tremendously talented Architect. His professionalism, his commitment to superior quality design and his impeccable attention to detail is a true pleasure to experience through the entire course of a project. I've had the great pleasure of working with Kenneth for many years and on a wide range of aesthetically diverse projects and he will always be my first choice when in need of the services that he and his firm provides.

Christie was our architect for a very transformative remodel of our entire house. From a very dated 1970's styled house, that was built originally in the 1920's. She was everything we needed in an architect. Creative, responsive, and very professional. We would highly recommend her services.

I worked with Keith for a remodel of a TV room and two bathrooms. I was very impressed with how creative he was. Keith was able to work with me on ideas and layouts and he always worked on keeping me on budget with the choices of finishes that I wanted. Once we had the plan it was a very quick turnaround to get drawings off to the contractor. I look forward to working on a kitchen remodel with him next!
Carl C. Oldenburg AIA
Alto, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 29, 2016
When we first interviewed Carl many years ago, we were impressed by his ability to problem solve with the client and create positive outcomes with problematic situations. That impression proved true in all our projects with Carl. Our first project involved turning a ranch style home into a two story home. The staircase was a bit tricky but Carl created a gorgeous staircase that really pulled the whole project together. Our second project was a rescue on Carl's part. We were planning major winterization and expansion of a summer home including all new kitchen and garage with apartment. Unfortunately, our relationship with the architect in that state deteriorated to an unacceptable level. After calling Carl for advice on dealing with this, we fired the other architect and hired Carl. He worked with the plans we had and immediately identified the problems and suggested the perfect solutions. He attended a Coastal Area Committee meeting to make sure the plans and project were accepted. Our third project was just this past year on the second home. It entailed creating a new master bath and walk-in closet by moving rooms and the addition of a screened porch. Once again, Carl listened to what we were trying to accomplish and came up with exactly what we wanted. Another aspect to Carl's work is that the builders we have used have been impressed with his plans.
Hubbell Daily Architecture + Design
Alto, CA Architects and Building Designers
February 17, 2017
Our work with the Hubbell Daily team has been wonderful. We entirely remodeled our home in 2007 and are currently working on bathroom redesign with them (2017). Brad and Suzanne are professional, very knowledgeable and are in close contact to help us make the best decisions at the best cost. Everyone that walks in our house compliments us on it. And the original work was 10 years ago. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing conscientious, design focused and environmentally friendly architects.
Verdigris
Alto, CA Architects and Building Designers
September 26, 2013
As a professional designer, I spend my days obsessing over the minutia of television commercials, websites and print advertising. So you can imagine how challenging it might be to find an architectural firm who shares in this ethic. I'm happy to say that Verdigris fits the bill perfectly. They have helped us design modifications to our Mill Valley home (bathroom, living room, and dining room) over the past decade, and I am thrilled with the results. While it's a pleasure to work with a firm which has excruciating attention to detail, I find it refreshing that they are equally skillful at the big picture. Verdigris helped us prioritize our goals, focus our thinking, and made creative (and cost saving!) suggestions throughout the process. Bonus: they are small enough that your job won't be handed off to an intern or junior architect. Chip and Brian are both seasoned pros and on top of their game.
Guy Lubroth, Architect
Alto, CA Architects and Building Designers
December 29, 2014
We engaged Architect Guy Lubroth to help us remodel our apartment in San Francisco. He was very professional and thorough in his review of what could be done architecturally. Guy was also very helpful in presenting several alternatives to us. Our remodel is now complete and it is as perfect as we could have wanted. Thanks to Guy's help the HOA approvals went thru easily and the entire experience was good. We can highly recommend Guy Lubroth to anyone considering building or remodeling. Sincerely, Noel Pinto

Tim Clark is very creative, artistic and has a good knowledge of building, carpentry and also engineering. He gets work done on time and is responsive. He has designed two of my projects. The first was a major remodel of a house in San Rafael, CA. The entire living room was torn down and a new living room and a huge master bedroom was added above the living room. The kitchen was completely remodeled as well. The remodel occurred in 2004-2005. The next project was the replacement of a carport and deck of a beach house in Inverness, CA. This project was completed around 2011. The cost of the first was around $350,000 with the second being about $60,000, including the permit.

Wow! We can't really say enough about how great Matt was to work with. We came to him after already having some pretty solid ideas, but he did a fantastic job of walking the line between respecting what we had already decided and adding some suggestions that might work better. After being frustrated with a lack of response from contractors, painters, tilers, and others involved in a remodel, it was so refreshing to find Matt and his promptness in replying to our emails. Having gotten used to having to wait a few days to hear from others, it was so great to hear back from Matt within a few hours. Matt was extremely helpful with linking us up with engineers and other subcontractors, including working with the city regarding permits and passing along some discounts that he was able to get for certain supplies. We have already recommended him to a few other friends and would not hesitate to do so again in the future.
Urrutia Design

We worked with Urrutia Design on a complete home renovation. Jason and Martha listened to our ideas and translated them into their design aesthetic. Their cohesive design runs throughout the entire house and they incorporated our family's specific needs resulting in a more usable, beautiful space. We are thrilled with our new home!
