Daniel Ruark, Architect
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Alto
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 23, 2016
Aaron Green could not have asked for a more worthy heir than Daniel Ruark, just as Frank Lloyd Wright could not have asked for a more worthy heir than Aaron Green. In 2013, I purchased a small residence on the Stanford campus designed by Aaron Green, a real gem of a house that had an outdoor tool shed in the carport area. I consulted Ruark about transforming the shed into a master bathroom that would incorporate into the main house without compromising or adding to the main plan. Ruark produced an ingenious, exquisite design, down to the last detail, and oversaw the construction, which entailed considerable challenges. The result is a stunning master bathroom that blends seamlessly into the unique architecture and color tones of the house. Daniel Ruark's professionalism, honesty, and devotion to his work are exemplary. He is a a master artist of organic architecture. Aaron Green recognized this, and the work Ruark did for me confirms it.

Some of the many things I appreciate about David Marlatt, my architect on a large and fairly complex home project: He is imaginative, personable, calm, prompt, works extremely well with contractors and vendors, delivers designs / changes promptly. Not only an excellent sense of design architecturally, but also for interiors, fixtures, etc. Thorough practical knowledge base and expertise in dealing with the multitude of City / regulatory issues. Everything - design, budgets, timing, etc - is thought through carefully, and from many angles. Thoroughly receptive to client preferences, but will also be directive when needed. As his client, I'm am never in doubt that my interests are his highest priority. Plans and designs are created, stored and presented electronically - in 3D renderings as well as floor plans. Easy for those of us who are 3D-challenged to follow. In my view, outstanding in all areas. I can confidently recommend David without reservation.

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!

Dan Weaver of 361 Architecture designed an amazing remodel for our mid-century style Mill Valley home. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Dan on the project. He was extremely sensitive to our needs and concerns regarding design, process, timing and budget. He worked seamlessly with our contractor. The entire process went very smoothly and we were absolutely thrilled with the results. – Renée Harcourt

My husband and I were in search of the perfect house that had to satisfy both our needs. The only thing we seemed to agree on was that the location had to be in Marin County. After almost 7 long years of renting, we finally found the perfect location on a street we were both in love with but unfortunately the house was far from what either one of us liked as it was way too small for our family of four and the one bathroom was the size of a phone booth! We then searched for an architect that would be able to give us both what we wanted and could see our vision and blend it together. After interviewing several different architects and feeling like they didn’t “get us” we moved on and were fortunate enough to have met Eric who was a referral from our real estate agent. He listened and really understood the look and feel each one of us wanted. When we saw the plans he designed for us, we were beyond delighted! He took our 1400 square foot home and turned it into a 3500 sqft. dream home that has everything we both had always wanted in the most creative and family friendly way. He put a lot of thought and care into our house and we couldn’t be happier with his brilliance, creativity, work ethic, honesty, and dedication.
Gregory Dedona Architect
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Alto
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJuly 9, 2013
I'm the fortunate and proud owner of two custom homes designed by Greg Dedona. One is in Mill Valley, Marin County (1999, remodel) and the other is in McCloud, Siskiyou County (2013, tear-down & full new construction). Greg's mastery of design, materials and construction processes created two stunning, unique, buildable and affordable homes. His ability to creatively merge our family's goals, an evolving joint vision for the houses and the highly different administrative processes of these two sharply contrasting counties was something I believe very few (if any?) other architects could achieve. From the most rural contractor resources in Siskiyou to the most experienced and high-end pros in Marin, Greg demonstrated an ability to forge loose and disparate bands of craftsmen into a cohesive team. His leadership was respected by everyone involved - strikingly unusual in the often friction-plagued relationships one sees between contractor and architect. Perhaps most creatively, our McCloud home made great use of owner-procured (i.e., salvaged!) locally sourced, recycled materials - 100 yr old wood floors, replaned structural doug fir for interior trim, refurbished Wedgewood kitchen stoves etc.. In sharp contrast to architects who often scorn such an approach, Greg was invaluable in his advice on how to make these materials work. He helped us source many of them through his amazing array of contacts not just in Marin, but from Tahoe to the Oregon border. Highest possible rating...were there a lifetime achievement award for residential architecture in California, Greg Dedona has already earned it.
Studio Terpeluk

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 11, 2017
I am an interior designer and have worked with Bret Terpeluk and his studio in 3 different projects of different sizes and had an amazing experience. In the three cases he was hired by my clients after meeting him and hearing his ideas and design process after interviewing with other prospective architects. Bret is very creative and experienced, and is able to understand the client’s needs and come up with amazing design and then take that into plans and help through the whole process from getting permits to completion of the project. He has impeccable taste and is very easy to work with and with great communication. I HIGHLY recommend his studio to my clients and anybody who is looking for a great architect.
