Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Boise, ID
Gravitas
Architects and Building Designers in Boise, ID
"Wow!...about sums up the experience we had collaborating with Gravitas, and the end design of our home which was dubbed 'The Afton'. Derek listened to our ideas, and his ability to make the smaller home have so much usable space was right up our alley. We are grateful for his insight, patience and suggestions which has lent themselves to subsequent projects. Anyone who has the pleasure of work with Gravitas, will be greatly blessed."

ZODIAC DESIGN
Architects and Building Designers in Boise, ID
"Mike Smith is wonderful with clients. We worked together at a large building company and met with several people to design and build homes. Everyone always loved the designs he came up with and loved working with him. I would recommend him in a heart beat. Mike was always easy to get a hold of and if he was unavailable he would call right back. Mike is proactive and always met his time frames for our clients. Thanks Mike and keep up the terrific design work!"

J Truex Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Boise, ID
"Jevon designed an uncommonly attractive and functional house for us. He listened to our requirements and wishes, discussed structural and cost constraints, and put together a set of plans with which we were well pleased. The construction went smoothly with zero "redos" on the fly. Jevon was readily available to the general contractor, and on-site questions were quickly and efficiently answered. The only thing that could have been better, would have been a more energetic approach in dealing with the local bureaucracies. A longtime friend and architect from out of state visited last year and proclaimed, "This house captures your personality," which he deemed a high compliment among architects."

Amy Allgeyer Architect, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Boise, ID
"We were referred to Amy to design the new home that we were planning to build. This was going to be our dreamhouse, so understanding our vision was critical. From the first time we sat down with her, it was clear that she understood what we wanted. She worked with us through the process, walking us through the various steps and helping us understand what would work for us. Working thorugh the changes we wanted to the initial design was easy and with each edit she got closer and closer. Within a few weeks of engaging her we had the final plans - and it was exactly our vision. We are now living in the house and it is perfect! She is easy to work with, accomodating, and really listens to what her customer wants. the most important part is that she delivers a final product that was wonderful!"

Scott A. Whitmire Residential Designer
Architects and Building Designers in Boise, ID
"Scott has drawn several projects for us. He is professional, informative and understands construction meathods. The plans are accurate and descriptive. I have used many designers over my 28 years, some draw plans that are pretty but are not good enough to build off of, some are good enough to build off of but are extremly plain, Scott combines both. Well done Scott. I will continue using your service."

How do I find the best Boise 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 Idaho 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 Boise 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 Boise, ID 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 Boise, ID 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 Boise 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?
