Featured Reviews for Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers

Koch Architects - Joanne Koch
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
January 29, 2014
“I just completed a complete remodel of my San Francisco Edwardian flat and build out my basement. Joanne and her staff did a fantastic job. It started out as a kitchen bath remodel, but once the design process started expanded to include every room as we discussed how different spaces would be used and what I didn't like about the current space after living with it for 20yrs. Might as well do it right! Joanne's attention to detail, listening, and high ethical standards are unmatched. She would listen in the meetings and ask questions then come back with some ideas and sketches to get my reaction. She knew what I wanted without me even knowing it. She was also sensitive to the project budget which was important. I was able to complete the project within my budget. She was also key to working with the general contractor. She brought with her experience in projects of my scope / scale and working with different contractors and even her own remodel. This helped immensely. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Koch Architects again.”
Rebecca Schnier Architecture
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
July 22, 2015
“I highly recommend Rebecca Schnier Architecture. Rebecca has done several projects for us, including a 1000sf upper level addition, kitchen and bathroom remodels. The first project was in 2001 and the last one in 2012. She does beautiful design work that is very functional. She asks questions to be sure she understands her clients needs and taste. She offers design options and always has her clients best interests in mind. She is very creative and resourceful in her use of space. She is a pleasure to work with and delivers beautiful results.”
John Barton Architect
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 6, 2014
“We recommend John without reservation. He was the architect for our remodel several years ago. Many remodels feel very tacked-on. Every one of his remodeling projects felt very organic--they felt like the house was meant to be that way. He not only achieved that with ours but also solved some tough drainage problems on our lot. Years after the project was completed, we still marvel at how well the house works and how well it has handled our changing needs. He is also very professional. He set our expectations regarding cost and timing and met those expectations. Finally he provided great references to a contractor and a designer. We were so impressed, we just hired him again to work on our vacation house.”
JBP Architects
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
February 10, 2020
“I worked with JBP Architects to remodel and re-layout my home, which required a foundation repair and upgrade. As part of this process, I had to move stairs, re layout the kitchen, redo the bathrooms and think about many of the implications of this process. JBP is wonderful to work with because they have construction background and experience, which means that they are realistic about what can be achieved given the time, space, budget and goals of the project. However, they can pair this experience with an understanding of flow, layout and livability - making sure that whatever you put together is truly additive to your home and living experience. I strongly recommend JBP if you are looking for someone that will bring a vision to your project that enhances your home living experience while being able to work with contractors and real world problems all the while.”
Michael Cobb
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
February 8, 2012
“Mike Cobb has broad vision. In my case, he took a very ordinary property and designed something contemporary that really enhanced the orientation on the lot, took advantage of previously inaccessible views, and made the house design exponentially more livable. I recommend him highly. ”
Fougeron Architecture FAIA
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
October 26, 2012
“Anne Fougeron is a brilliant, inspired architect. She designed a stunning, unique home for us that incorporated all modern but also green and cost-friendly materials. Her designs are complex in their incipience while the resulting aestetic is clean, simple, and modern. She is committed to and involved in her projects and is always accessible for questions and guidance. She's also a fun and interesting person to work with.”
3 Lights Design
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
March 7, 2016
“I love working with 3 Lights Design! Everyone there is professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and super friendly. TANGERINEdesign is a Residential Design firm focusing on space planning and room layouts for remodels and additions for all kinds of homeowners. Since I'm a 1-woman show, working with over 90 homeowners a year, I don't have the time to deal with Permit process, and 3 Lights Design gives me the ability to serve my clients from Design to Construction. My clients appreciate the attention to detail in order to streamline the process, while keeping a budget in mind.”
Design Draw Build
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
November 7, 2016
“The Design Draw Build team, headed by Tyler Kobick, gave me the confidence to move forward with my SF-based kitchen/bathroom remodel. Not only have they been creative & transparent from day 1 around design, trade-offs and pricing, but their communication throughout the process has been extraordinary. If you're searching for a partner to guide you through the process, one that is innovative, cost effective, and works on your behalf as a fiduciary, look no further than Design Draw Build! Pre/post pictures to follow!”
Dotter & Solfjeld Architecture + Design
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
November 1, 2012
“We worked with Dotter & Solfjeld most recently to design an Italian villa on a hillside in Saratoga, CA. This was actually our third project together as they worked on an expansion and remodel of our previous house in Palo Alto as well. As soon as we bought the lot in Saratoga Russ and Wencke, of D&S, began studying the landscape, spending significant time at different points in the day to intimately understand the light, the views and the flow of the hillside. Russ and Wencke are experts at both exterior and interior architecture and design, and they are an amazing team! Once they felt they knew the property, they spent time with us to understand what we liked and disliked and then began designing our house based largely on Italian building principles of thick walls and simple, yet elegant, construction. D&S involved us in every step of the process and ensured we were completely comfortable with each phase of the design before moving forward. They totally went above and beyond the call of duty by diligently working with our planning department and even one neighbor. They were our advocates with the City and were clearly extremely well respected by everybody they interfaced with. During the building process, D&S worked closely with our contractor and foreman to ensure that the project ran smoothly and stayed on budget. Often times, there is tension between architects and contractors, but our contractor loved working with D&S. Some of our friends have also used D&S to design ultra modern homes...D&S is super versatile and we unequivocally and enthusiastically recommend them.”
Studio Bergtraun AIA
Berkeley, CA Architects and Building Designers
February 5, 2014
“My wife and I have one of the most beautiful and functional kitchens in all of California thanks to Studio Bergtraun. Somehow, Alex managed to make a 13X13 space into a perfect kitchen for us and we have enjoyed it every day. His creativity and ability to see the big picture is something that we really appreciated. After two years of enjoying our kitchen, we wouldn't change a single thing Alex recommended.”
