OMNIA Group Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Ambler, PA
"Had an investment property that I couldn't sell due to the condition. After contacting the Omnia group they came in and scoped the job. Thy provided me with a workable plan and timeline that took advantage of the space available and maximized it's use. Now I have a completely updated property that I can either rent or sell and they did it fast and for a reasonable amount. I will definably use the Omnia group for my next project."

"We at Sterling Kitchen & Bath love being a preferred vendor with Gardner/Fox! We work well together to create beautiful dream kitchens (and baths!) for our clients. They pay attention to the client's wants and needs, and even the smallest detail is important! The end result is always beautiful when working with Gardner/Fox Associates, Inc!"

Terra Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Ambler, PA
"We worked with Tim Kerner on our full house renovation in downtown Philadelphia in 2009. He is very meticulous, thorough and thoughtful in his approach. He does not rush through decisions or projects. He communicated well with our general contractor. Also, when it came time to make decisions about lighting fixtures and other hardware around the house, he sent me some links online of ideas to choose from, to make the process less overwhelming. I found this extremely helpful. Tim is patient and easy to work with and I would hire him again for another project, or recommend him to anyone. I cannot speak to his rates because we did not get other estimates (as he also worked on a family member's project, so we knew we wanted to work with him). We are thrilled the way our house turned out."

Period Architecture Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Ambler, PA
"Joe Mackin and his firm designed us the most beautiful new house. He designed an 1800's style, stone farm house look that is amazing. The attention to detail is incredible. People have been to the house and can't decide if it's just an old house that was added on to, or a new house. We have worked with a handful of architects over the years, and Joe, by far, has been the BEST. We also did not use a builder, my husband an were the general contractors of the house, which is approximately 7,000 sq. feet."

Black Dog Architects Co.
Architects and Building Designers in Ambler, PA
"Don was fantastic to work with. He paid close attention to the needs of our family and worked with us to design and build an addition that functions well and looks great. Don is easy going and fun to talk to, you understand that he is truly concerned with the project and that his goal is to deliver his best. He has a great understanding of the codes that are required to be followed and the project sailed through permitting. Don also has expert knowledge in materials and methods and presented several options, with price ranges, that allowed us to maintain a tight budget and high quality."

Krieger + Associates Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Ambler, PA
"I am a builder who has used Krieger + Associates Architects Inc. many times throughout the years. I am currently working with them on an on-going project and could not be happier with their expertise and attention to detail. They are very knowledgeable in their field, professional, thorough, and have always met our deadlines with the client's budget in mind. If the client needs a change done quickly, Krieger + Associates Architects Inc. are on top of it. It is for these reasons that they are my go-to architect, and I plan to work with them for many years to come."

Wolstenholme Associates, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Ambler, PA
"We have been fortunate enough to work with Wolstenholme Associates on many occasions and have referred them directly to our clients needing building design and architectural work as well. Each time, we hear the same results, and they are always outstanding, which is why Rutgers Landscape Design continues to refer Wolstenholme to our clients. We also look forward to working with them on any Wolstenholme Architectural Plans, as they are always exciting and interesting design projects."

Princeton Design Collaborative
Architects and Building Designers in Ambler, PA
"We engaged Princeton Design Collaborative to provide design concepts for a small master bathroom addition. The current bathroom configuration was virtually unusable. The two concepts provided were cost effective for the client, and provided an aesthetically appealing design to the front of the home that matched the existing facade. The drawings were extremely complete and detailed as to make the permitting process with the township go smoothly. We look forward to working with John Conroy on future projects, and would highly recommend this company to anyone interested in architectural design concepts and drawings."

STUDIOrobert jamieson
Architects and Building Designers in Ambler, PA
"As new house owners, we left a condo living and decided to move into a house. We ultimately decided to purchase an older house and customize it to our tastes and needs. I had used to source some architects to help us out. We found Robert and a few others but it was Robert that accompanied me to house inspection for one and then also accompanied me to view the house we ended up purchasing. From start to finish, he was there. We utilized albums to collect photos and ideas to share so he could get a better sense of our needs and wants. He managed pretty much everything from the contractors to the purchasing of items. He also has a great eye for detail so when he conducted the final walk (we were traveling) and approved it, I didn't worry about him missing anything. As new home owners new to renovation, we did go over budget and in the end, we did have to omit some of the items/detailing that we wanted which was frustrating but Robert provided us alternatives so that we could discuss and decide. In the end, with the budget issue and not having the home 100% to what we wanted, we are still very happy with the project. People who have seen the home before are amazed at the results. We are very happy to have found Robert. As non-creative home owners who have never renovated a home, we would have never come up with some of the concepts he produced. He enabled us to customize this house enough that it meets our aesthetic and functional needs. Robert is very diligent and detailed. I think he may have been too detailed for us (ha) but as a result of me giving in to him, we have a stand out master bathroom. I view our home a great learning experience into the area of renovation. I now have Robert to use as a standard."

How do I find the best Ambler architect for my home design project?

It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire Pennsylvania subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Ambler residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Ambler, PA provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?

As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Ambler, PA are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Ambler interior architects:

  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
