Dames Design
Architects and Building Designers in Bryn Mawr, PA
"We first began working with Elizabeth Springer, owner of Dames Design in approximately September 2012. We sought out her structural engineering skills to reinforce two pillars in our basement that were built to support the extra weight in our new kitchen and mudroom, she also detailed a drawing and instructions for a steel beam to support a two story bump out. After more than proving her capabilities and meticulous eye for detail we asked Elizabeth to design our long awaited three car garage and roof terrace. Elizabeth worked with us every step of the way keeping us informed and tweaking our drawings when necessary. She works extremely well with other building contractors in a construction setting in what is predominately a male dominated occupation. We give Elizabeth a full five stars for her excellent detailed architectural drawings, superior knowledge and consistent communication and would highly recommend her to anyone intending on beginning any project large or small!"

Period Architecture Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Bryn Mawr, PA
"Joe Mackin and his firm designed us the most beautiful new house. He designed an 1800's style, stone farm house look that is amazing. The attention to detail is incredible. People have been to the house and can't decide if it's just an old house that was added on to, or a new house. We have worked with a handful of architects over the years, and Joe, by far, has been the BEST. We also did not use a builder, my husband an were the general contractors of the house, which is approximately 7,000 sq. feet."

Wyant Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Bryn Mawr, PA
"Wyant Architecture created beautiful and enriching living spaces for our family. We have worked with Jeff and Maria on many projects in our Philadelphia townhouse (circa 1876) ranging from straightforward renovations of existing bathrooms, to a kitchen renovation which involved moving walls and opening up sight lines, to a very complex addition. Jeff and Maria have an outstanding design sense retaining older features and incorporating contemporary elements in our home. In addition to everything else, Maria is particularly savvy about kitchen design and functionality. Their aesthetic guidance on the selection of materials – wood, tile, glass, metals, paint colors – is invaluable. They are visionary and able to problem solve creatively. They are able to propose creative design solutions that are well within budget. Jeff and Maria have excellent technical skills. Their attention to detail upfront makes the pricing and construction phases go as smoothly and as efficiently as possible. Working with Jeff and Maria is a wonderful experience. They listen attentively and respond promptly and creatively. They collaborate well with everyone – client, contractors, structural engineers, City Hall – and when necessary are strong advocates for their clients. We almost hate to be done with our architectural projects as we miss our regular interaction with them!"

Rasmussen / Su Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Bryn Mawr, PA
"We had a wonderful experience working with Rasmussen/Su on a kitchen renovation. Our home was built in 1879, and it had a cramped and dark kitchen. Kevin & Vivian really listened to what mattered to us (having a space that works for an active family and opens the kitchen up to the rest of the first floor) and they were able to incorporate those things into the design. They have experience with historic homes and local regulations and took care of the arduous permit process. They were there during construction when we ran into the unexpected things you discover in an old house. They also helped with the design details and decisions you have to make during a project. We now have an amazing space where everyone gathers to cook, do homework, and just be together."

OMNIA Group Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Bryn Mawr, PA
"Had an investment property that I couldn't sell due to the condition. After contacting the Omnia group they came in and scoped the job. Thy provided me with a workable plan and timeline that took advantage of the space available and maximized it's use. Now I have a completely updated property that I can either rent or sell and they did it fast and for a reasonable amount. I will definably use the Omnia group for my next project."

Karen Beam Architect LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Bryn Mawr, PA
"We hired Karen to design plans for an addition and renovations to our home. She was wonderful to work with and really understood what we wanted to add/change in our home. We would highly recommend Karen!"

Moger Mehrhof Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Bryn Mawr, PA
"From start to finish, through the design process to the end of construction and then with a follow-up project several years later, our experience has been optimal. Matthew Moger sought to grasp our goals during a series of pre-design meetings. Paying attention to big ideas and tiny details, on and off site, he oversaw a massive construction process that met deadlines and for us, was an anticipatory pleasure. Now, having lived in our vacation home for 8 years, we still enjoy its aesthetics and its functionality. We look forward to building another home with Moger Mehrhof."

Bloomfield Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Bryn Mawr, PA
"Paul helped us redesign our kitchen and first floor layout. He was easy to work with, had interesting ideas and provided multiple options (all great options) and excellent drawings. We are extremely pleased with how our project turned out."

How do I find the best Bryn Mawr 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 Pennsylvania 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 Bryn Mawr 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 Bryn Mawr, PA 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 Bryn Mawr, PA 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 Bryn Mawr 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?
