Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Atlanta, GA
Norwood Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Atlanta, GA
"We are so happy with our experience! The architect and also the GC, Woody was so immersed, dedicated to our project- he guided us when decisions had to be made with excellent communications skills and also humor! It was exciting to see it all happen- and it was on time! We were living in the basement during the renovation and one night, it was storming, pouring rain- and this was before we had the roof completed, and he shows up in the middle of the night just to check on things to make sure water wasn't coming in! He was also very good at keeping us in-check with our budget. We are very happy with our new home!!"

Kemp Hall Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Atlanta, GA
"I would highly recommend Kemp Hall Studio. My wife and I worked directly with Steve Kemp and couldn't be more pleased. He designed a Master Plan for us to renovate our 1960s ranch...and the end-product way surpassed our expecations. He captured what we were trying to do, but couldn't explain...he could. He was easy to work with, responsive, and very professional. Again, if you're looking for an architect to design a renovation or new home, I would strongly recommend that you consider Kemp Hall Studio."

Jones Pierce Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Atlanta, GA
"I have worked with Cooper Pierce at Jones Pierce. I found him to be astute, understanding and visionary. Their "10 Principles of Design" are unique to the market. As a builder, I continue to refer them every chance I get."

Castro Design Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Atlanta, GA
"Rodolfo Castro, of Casto Design Studio, is an amazing architect who I highly and very regularly recommend to others. By far the best part of our build was selecting Rodolfo of Castro Design Studio as our architect. We absolutely hope to use him again on future projects. Rodolfo worked for the first half of his career under one of Atlanta's most prestigious architectural firms. Rodolfo now brings the same high quality work, customer service, easy working relationship and incredible artistic talent via his boutique design studio. To say he works exceptionally well with clients and other professionals is an understatement. Rodolfo's expertise far exceeds architecture alone as he is extremely talented, knowledgeable and involved in all aspects of the building and design process. His hand sketched plans and elevations are so beautiful they deserve to be framed. His drawings are so remarkable, in fact, that City of Atlanta inspectors commented that they rarely see hand drawn renderings any more. Rodolfo listened to what we wanted and further perfected our vision. He helped us achieve lovely design finishes and architectural elements unique to our home and the topography of our lot. We wanted a new home that did not feel new and we wanted to maximize our square footage to avoid wasted space. Rodolfo was so successful in executing our vision that most visitors to our home assume we remodeled an older house. Rodolfo understood that we did in fact have a budget and offered suggestions and tricks on ways to get the look we wanted without blowing the budget. If you are building or remodeling in the Altanta area, interview Rodolfo! He will likely become your friend and is sure to be the best part of your build as well. Sincerely, Juliane Walker and William McCaleb Buckhead homeowners"

Brian Patterson Designs, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Atlanta, GA
"I have been working with Brian on a professional level, as a builder and renovator, for more than a decade. He has a very fastidiousness approach to design and implementation that always results in a successful completion and happy customers. Most designers hand off a set of plans and you never see them again but with Brian Patterson Designs they stay involved to make sure what they envisioned gets completed as planned. That is why I prefer to work with Brian. Over the years our collaborative projects have been featured in Better Homes and Gardens Remodel Magazine Atlanta Home Improvement Atlanta Magazine"

Robert M. Cain, Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Atlanta, GA
"Robert M. Cain was the architect for my home, completed in 2009. Photos are elsewhere on this site. Robert M. Cain (Bob) is a brilliant designer and superlative master of construction oversight. As the project began, he listened carefully to us and perfectly and seamlessly incorporated our desires into the house. The building is both beautiful and extremely comfortable. It is a LEED Platinum Home. It has many high performance features such as solar panels and geothermal heat pumps. Passive solar concepts are inherent in the design and allow us the be comfortable much of the year without heating or air conditioning. It has many windows and feels like it is in a forest, although the location is urban. It is a calm and cheerful house. Working with Bob and his staff was a completely delightful experience; it was satisfying in every way. Mary B."

Southeast Studios Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Atlanta, GA
"Mr. Mix was an excellent choice for us. He worked quickly and professionally. The price was very reasonable. I would gladly use him again. It was a blueprint of a remodeling of a four story building that will be converted into a residence for a family of six. I do not hesitate to give him the hightest recommendation."

TaC studios, architects
Architects and Building Designers in Atlanta, GA
"The word that best describes my experience with TaC Studios is "perfect". My partner and I decided to build our dream house together. The only thing that we absolutely knew before we began the process was that we wanted something modern and "green". An architect friend of mine suggested that we contact TaC Studios. We had never worked with an architect before so we had no idea what to expect. From our first meeting we knew that we had made the right decision. Cara and Jose provided us with practical but gentle guidance throughout the whole process. They took our wish list and turned it into a house that continues to exceed our expectations. At every step they made us think about that way we live our lives and how our house could be designed to make our lives easier. They asked us to picture ourselves in the space and imagine what it would be like to actually live in it. The result is a home that is not only beautiful but practical. "Practical" is not a particularly sexy word in the world of architecture but when it comes to home design it is essential to creating a space that meets the everyday needs that everyone takes for granted. From the amount of natural light that illuminates the space to the location of the dishwasher in relation to the cabinets, Cara and Jose thought of everything. We could not be happier with the results. The process did have its aggravating moments but Cara and Jose were there with us throughout the process. We absolutely could not have gotten through it without them. I actually think they should add "construction therapy" to their resume! I can recommend them to anyone building a house from the ground up without reservation"

How do I find the best Atlanta 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 Georgia 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 Atlanta 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 Atlanta, GA 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 Atlanta, GA 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 Atlanta 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?
