Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Baltimore, MD
Penza Bailey Architects

Melville Thomas Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Baltimore, MD
"We discovered Laura Thomas of MelvilleThomas by seeing the great range of work & styles profiled on Houzz.com. We were so pleased to learn she was located nearby & understood the area when generating designs. Laura is an incredibly creative architect(and we have worked with others far less so in the past) who was very responsive to our questions, comments, and timetable. She took the time to try to understand both our needs & limitations, as well as our schedule. Laura came up with not one, but two, well thought out conceptual designs for our project. She was helpful in suggesting contruction & real estate professionals to help us achieve/evaluate our various concerns. We found Laura's artistic bent to be very useful for us, as non-architect consumers, in visualizing her design ideas. A picture is worth 1000 words! While we ultimately chose not to build, we would not have been able to make an informed decision without Laura's assistance. We do have her lovely conceptual drawings should we(or a future buyer) wish to go forward with the major addtion we had been contemplating in the future."

Mark Mobley Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Baltimore, MD
"Mark was able to come in and get his redesigned plans through one of the most difficult Architectural Site Review Boards in all of California when our original architect was not able to finish the job. This custom home met all of my needs. Mark was able to translate my verbal descriptions of my design ideas into a cost effective, buildable product. His understanding of how to best utilize this tricky job site made a great difference from other architects that were engaged in the project. This project could never had been done without his guidance and expertise."

Analogue (formerly EN Architects)
Architects and Building Designers in Baltimore, MD
"We had the opportunity to work with Eli this past year on remodeling our bathroom. He helped turn our one bathroom into two by cutting into our walk-in closet and also a bit into the master bedroom. The master bathroom is laid out so you enter through the walk-in closet. Being in the city where space is tight, he was able to make two elegant contemporary bathrooms feel spacious in a small area. The looks are absolutely stunning and he has already started plans on our kitchen. His plans were easy to read with a full listing of all the fixtures we needed to order to complete the job. He makes himself available if you need to follow-up with him while the project is in progress if changes need to be made."

Hiser + Kopits Hiser Architects, P.C.
Architects and Building Designers in Baltimore, MD
"Se have not started construction yet, but HKH Architects provided us with plans that we envisioned, and worked with us to achieve our goals for our addition. The meetings were punctual, and the documents were prepared in a timely fashion and within the estimated budget. We would definitely go with HKH again for help in designing our next project."

2e Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Baltimore, MD
"My wife and I hired Peter to re-design our house on the Sassafras River. The re-design included an entirely new second floor as well as a total remodelling of the first floor. Completing this project was more difficult than might ordinarily be the case becuase of zoning and critical area regulations and my wife's disability. Not only was the design spectacular, but Peter was of great assistance in helping us comply with those regulations, choose a contractor and resolving the unforseen problems that are part of any major renovation. The end result: a beautiful weekend home that was delivered on time and within budget."

How do I find the best Baltimore 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 Maryland 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 Baltimore 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 Baltimore, MD 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 Baltimore, MD 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 Baltimore 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?
