Featured Reviews for Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Brier

WAI/GORNY Design, inc.
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Brier
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJuly 27, 2015
We have worked with Wai/GorrnyDesign on several renovations and restoration projects of our 1917 Craftsman house. Over the last several years, those projects have included: the addition of a front porch on the house, a kitchen remodel with pantry, fireplace brickwork and mantel restoration and the renovation of our sun room (which is now my absolute favorite room in the house!). We have the highest regard for Wai/Gorny's work—both in terms of design and of knowledge about houses from this era. Our relationship with Alexandra from Wai/Gorny has been a real three-way partnership--between us, the contractor and her. She definitely has opinions and perspectives to offer based on her expertise, but she always listens to our needs and desires, and is committed to finding the best designs after factoring in our input. She is very approachable and willing to meet with us anytime we've requested getting together. Best of all, she has a great sense of humor and has been a lot of fun to work with! Alexandra has also been an excellent advocate for us with the city and the permitting process related to one of our projects. When there were questions from the City, she promptly and thoroughly addressed their information needs. We have just embarked on another project with Wai/Gorny--this time a bathroom remodel and some updates to several bedrooms. She's loaned us personal copies of her books and provided web resources and links where we could get ideas. As you can tell, we keep coming back to Wai/Gorny for all of our remodeling and renovation projects because of the quality of her ideas, designs, and ability to work with our contractors and subcontractors.
Haven Design Workshop
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Brier
Average rating: 4 out of 5 starsJanuary 28, 2014
I am a retired Interior Designer and wanted to work with an architect who was up on the latest improvements in HVAC and plumbing. I had a pretty clear idea of the layout of our new house but needed help deciding on a contractor to hire as well as some creative structural details to make our 1800 sq. ft. single level home work for us as we age without looking like an "old folks home". Haven Design was instrumental in helping us select a contractor and we have been very pleased with the results.
Concept Architecture, LLC

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJanuary 16, 2015
Highest recommendation! We absolutely love the new custom home that Martin, with Concept Architecture, designed for us. Martin took our ideas and some very site specific requirements and created a home that is so much more than we expected. Martin is friendly, professional and REALLY listens. The very first draft sketches proved that he understood what we wanted and needed. He worked with the county to meet all of the special requirements for building on a slope near water.

Craig and his team did a wonderful job repairing structural damage of our porte-cochere. They were quick and efficient, and had strong communication.

Tuvia was easy to work with, came in on budget and on time and had some great ideas. I would recommend him to any of my friends and we will hire him again for our next project.
Bruce Owensby, Architect
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Brier
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 2, 2020
Armentrout Residence Our home was roughly a 1560 square foot Cape Cod cottage on a large lot. Originally, we intended to enlarge our kitchen, that eventually led to a larger addition and a full remodel. Our contractor, Norm Ferkingstad, introduced us to Bruce, an architect he’d worked with on other projects. We enjoyed working with Bruce as he really listened to what we wanted, he gave us so many choices, and introduced options we didn’t realize we had. Our home is now approximately 2900 square feet, including a new master suite. We wanted the original feel of a cottage to be maintained. Bruce did a great job. From the street, the house doesn’t look any larger than it originally did. From the sides and rear, the addition blends seam-lessly with the existing structure. Bruce did an amazing job expanding our small home, blending old with new, while keeping the charm. During early design meetings, Bruce stressed that we should interact with our home, not just exist in it. Bruce insights and recommendations added so much to our family’s home life experience. We really enjoy his creation of a variety of spaces to fulfill a diversity of moods. We have a large extended family, so we often have people visiting during the summer. We always hear from guests how comfortable our home is. They say it has a flow that leads you through the home. Parties and gatherings are comfortable and people are never clumped in the kitchen, but are spread throughout our home. Everyone comments there is a great balance of private space and inviting public space. We can easily have 30 people in our home without it feeling crowded. Yet, when it’s just the four of us, the house still feels cozy and warm. The design of our deck and outdoor space is inviting and in constant use. As a result our home has become the “go to place” for family events and parties, including a small private wedding in our backyard. We couldn’t be happier with our home. We love how Bruce blended our traditional desires with contem-porary ideas. Many times we have stood on a small hill on our property at night, looking down at our home, lit up, and take delight in what we have. We are so very thankful for what Bruce created for us. From design through construction, Bruce provided great customer service. He is patient and very respon-sive. He charges fair fees for superior design service. Not only do we highly recommend Bruce; we also hired him again for our next project, a separate carriage-style garage and home office. For us, Bruce is clearly an exceptional architect.

Prentiss Balance Wickline Architects

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 20, 2013
Professional, friendly, skilled, clever -- that's how I would describe the experience of working with Prentiss Architects. In any design project, problems come up, but it is how the problems are solved that is telling. We walked away happy. We are proud of and are still in love with our house in the San Juan Islands, 10 years later.
Rhodes Architecture + Light
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Brier
Average rating: 4 out of 5 starsOctober 10, 2013
My wife and I have a difficult lot to build a house on due to its irregular slope, steep in some areas. In order to have a view of Puget Sound the main floor had to be as high as possible. Before hiring Rhodes Architecture + Light we met with a few builders who do their own design work. They were unable to come up with an acceptable way to achieve the floor height we need. This drove us to look for an architect. We selected Tim Rhodes because we liked his portfolio of completed projects and after meeting him felt we could trust him to do the job. Tim came up with a very clever design that incorporated all our requirements. We've been living in the house 14 months and are quite pleased. Tim's design gets many compliments from first time visitors. The only reason I didn't give Rhodes Architecture + Light five stars is cost estimation and control. Our construction cost ended up 40% above my desired target. To be fair this is common when building a house.
FabCab
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Brier
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 1, 2013
The team at FabCab consists of a group of young and very talented professionals who all work to design and deliver a beautiful, green, timberframe home. The results are stunning! FabCab worked with us from start to finish, offering custom floorplan design expertise, interior design consultation, and even recommendations for the Contractor, Jim Hall, that we ended up choosing. The "package" we purchased made decisions so much easier than other traditional construction, where the universe of choices can be paralyzing. Along the way we were given suggestions about appliances, carpet, flooring, etc. that were compatible with the style we had chosen. Although we were free to choose totally different interior components, we stayed mostly within the recommendations because they were great options, and because it helped us keep within our budget. We ended up with a 1440 sq. ft. home that seems larger than our previous 2100 sq. ft. home, and we are thrilled with the finished product.
Coates Design Architects Seattle
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Brier
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 25, 2012
We've toured the residential and commercial projects created on Bainbridge Island by Coates Design, and have followed their work for years. Our office was in the same building, and we often stopped in to learn more about their projects. We've always been impressed by their great architectural sense of aesthetics, and their ability to create innovative work that blends well into the surroundings of the project location. Very professional, very pleasant and very accomplished.
