Custom Home Designs
Architects and Building Designers in Baton Rouge, LA
"I am a Registered Professional Engineer and have worked with many engineers, architects and other design professionals over the years. None exceed, and few match, the competence, expertise, and professionalism of Custom Home Designs, which is the reason I trusted this firm with designing the interior and exterior remodel of the home we recently purchased. Custom Home Designs did an excellent job of helping us figure out the best approach to accomplish what we wanted in the house in ways we would not have thought of. The design and construction plans were produced timely and precisely, and left no detail undone for the contractor to follow."

A-Digital Design
Architects and Building Designers in Baton Rouge, LA
"After years spent attending Parade of Homes and open houses, I had a hand drawing sketched out and was looking for someone to help draw the actual plans. I liked several homes I visited that were built by Habitat Digital and approached A Digital for their floorplans. Mauricio generously shared several and though all were very nice, they all lacked some element critical to my vision. He was busy and I decided to wait on him until he had time to work on my plans and in hindsight that was the best decision. Once he actually started working on my drawings, he was quick out of the gate. He sent multiple drafts to help me envision the basic layout and discuss. I was stressed out and in a time crunch myself so it was a pleasant and welcome change to see the drafts and be able to request tweaks and ask about different approaches. I requested and got his frank opinion on options I was considering. That helped me make several informed choices. The entire design process felt very collaborative. Mauricio was a patient listener throughout and very responsive both via phone and emails. When we started working with him, we thought we knew exactly what we wanted; but as the floor plan evolved, we ended up making significant changes to our initial concept and Mauricio was a great help by sending updated draft drawings and even suggesting other ways to accomplish what we were thinking. Usually together we came up with a totally different solution from what we had started with which actually ended up being the optimal choice. He listened closely to my ramblings and expressed wishes and helped set them on paper. He never hurried me when I was thinking something out loud and answered the many questions I asked in depth and it was helpful to have German available as a sounding board on building specific questions. They generously shared from their past experiences and knowledge base and were quick to point out why something may not be a good idea within the scope of my project but never tried to steer me away from my intended goals. He was tireless and quick with providing updated drawings for review after every meeting or email / phone consultation and pushed to get the plans finalized in a timely fashion. When I couldn't make up my mind about a certain section of the layout, seeing his drawings was the best way to think it through and make the final choice. He was open to my non traditional design choices and pleasantly surprised me by applying some of my funky approaches to other areas of the plan that I hadn't even thought about but that looked cool and functional after he put it on paper. I had heard from other people about saving money by using a draftsman but I don't think I would have obtained this quality of work and excellence of execution so this feels like money well spent. Everyone who has seen the final plans has complimented us on the pretty elevations and functional design. I have great peace of mind knowing that Mauricio will assist with code compliance issues - if any crop up - as we seek HOA and city approvals. I highly recommend A Digital to anyone who would like to get a well thought out / custom design without having to pay an arm and a leg in the process."

Kevin L Harris, Architect LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Baton Rouge, LA
"In our opinion, Kevin Harris is one of the premier residential architects in the country. We hired Kevin to design our retirement home in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He placed our home upon a sloping site in such a way that it blends beautifully with the topography. The house itself is a blend of Craftsmen and Prairie styles - Kevin combined these elements into a coherent design creating a unique piece of architecture. Kevin's sense of design, detail and especially proportion and scale are beyond description - he accomplished all of this without overpowering the welcoming sense of intimacy and homeyness that we wanted in our home. I have known Kevin for a number of years, I have seen many of his residential designs, a few of his historical restorations, and have used him (earlier in his career) for a commercial office renovation/expansion that I did. For both my wife and myself, the telling attribute of his genius is that he doesn't have "a style" like many architects seem to have. Every design we have seen of Kevin's is unique, in different architectural styles, in different periods, and in different materials. Most impressive and most refreshing was his attention first to how we wanted to 'live' in our new home. We spent many weeks discussing our life style, how we lived within our home, what we liked about the house we were in, and what we would change. We had interviewed other architects, and it seemed that they wanted to first design a structure and then fit us into it. In Kevin's words, "Form follows function". He assured us that we should design the house to our needs, and that he would then put it inside an envelope. He checked his ego at the door, and worked with us to create an inspired home. I have seen Kevin's designs of Antebellum Plantation homes, classic Creole cottages, New Orleans style town homes, Mid Century modern, Tuscan Villas and Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design. All are amazing, all are stunning. We highly recommend Kevin and his firm for any project you may be planning, you should consider yourself fortunate if you are able to secure his services."

William R. Powell, A.I.A. Architect, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Baton Rouge, LA
"We gave Bill a list of things we wanted in our new house; workout room, office, pool, sound system, central vac, and on and on the random detailed list went. He came back to us with a house that fit on our tight rectangular lot with a huge oak tree and picky CCR rules, with a beautiful house that had every little detail we asked for! I jumped up & down and danced around the room. He did the impossible. He is just a nice person and listens. I might add I think he is brilliant."
- Jane Keller
Jairo Leon Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Baton Rouge, LA
"Mr Leon was very professional and demanded attention to all detail. We worked with him from drawings through completion of the home. He made sure everything we wanted was included in our plans. He then visited the job site regularly to make sure that the highest attention to detail was followed. He acted as a representative for us with the contractor and subs and handled all the issues. Having someone treat you as family while making sure you wishes were fulfilled was so important to us. I truly can't imagine building our home without him. We remain friends though we have been in the house three years."

How do I find the best Baton Rouge 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 Louisiana 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 Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge, LA 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 Baton Rouge, LA 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 Baton Rouge 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?
