Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Birmingham, AL
John M. Holmes Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Birmingham, AL
"We used John Holmes as our architect for a large home addition. Our addition looks like it is original to the house. John is professional, responsive and has a great eye for the beauty and functionality of a completed project. He has been at our side throughout the entire process giving us overall guidance both by making recommendations and just listening. John is experienced, knowledgable, able to "tweak" to keep within budget and has been timely in getting back with us. He is extremely easy to work with and a pleasure to be around. We give John top marks as an architect and have no hesitations in recommending him to others."

Jennie Leigh Jones Design
Architects and Building Designers in Birmingham, AL
"Jennie designed an architectural "facelift" for the front of our house, which transformed it from a boring dated split-level ranch to a beautiful multi-level craftsman. She listened to all of our needs, and implemented every design element we wanted. To this day, I continue to receive many complements on the redesign, along with requests for her information! We could not be happier with the results!!!"

Jeffrey Dungan Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Birmingham, AL
"My name is Brad Zeitlin and my firm is New Orchard and Woodford Capital. I have known Jeff Dungan for approximately 10 years. I have worked with him on several projects - from single family homes to large mixed use projects. Without question, Jeff is the most talented architect with whom I have ever worked. I also hired Jeff to design my personal home which was an incredibly rewarding experience - both personal and professional. Jeff understood the needs of my family and collaborated throughout the process until we achieved what I would call a masterpiece. Regarding the mixed use and resort projects - some which were large scale and had complexities including underground garages, roof top pools etc..., Jeff had the design ability - and the understanding of engineering requirements and cost considerations. He is an EXCELLENT architect and an incredible person. Feel free to call me at 850-685-7859 if you want to speak with me further. Brad"

How do I find the best Birmingham 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 Alabama 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 Birmingham 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 Birmingham, AL 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 Birmingham, AL 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 Birmingham 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?
