QMA Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Cape May, NJ
"QMA Design did a major exterior renovation on our house which included new siding, doors, windows, chimney, steps, porch as well as addition of a second story terrace, complete renovation of the front of house to create additional parking space and new landscaped areas. Todd and his project managers and workers did a beautiful job. After the job and to date Todd is extremely responsive if problems develop (and no major problems have developed) or if other new work is needed. I highly recommend this company."

Halliday Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Cape May, NJ
"Halliday Architects designed our new home to replace the one destroyed by Storm Sandy in 2012. The team was our one stop shop to help us balance the needs and final chance to get it right, as critical plan budget restraints were necessary due to repeated insurance recovery disappointments. The Team is one of the very best experiences with getting a custom building job on track, on time, within budget. The most important reflection of the experience was complete early communication and finalization of needs and wants. We can now reflect the joy of watching our home rise from paper to reality due to the value and professional competence of the Halliday Architects Team and knowledge. GREAT JOB WELL DONE! Some photos of our project appear on this company website and will speak volumes!"

Fine Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Cape May, NJ
"Working with Pam Fine Architecture has been a great experience for my husband and myself. The quality of her work is excellent with her attention to detail. The floor layout Pam created for our house was really our dream come true for our expectations. Communicating with Pam Fine Architecture was really simple and easy and she always payed attention to any inputs we offered. Pam always responded quickly to any questions we had regarding our plans. Overall, working with Pam Fine Architecture is five star worthy and I would highly recommend to anyone. Her prices are very competitive and I see no reason to look anywhere else. My husband and I did a lot of searching for an architect and Pam Fine beats them all."

Christina Amey Architect LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Cape May, NJ
"We couldn't have had a better experience with Christina Amey. She listened to all of our wishes when we had our initial meeting. While we expected to be told that some of our wishes could not be accommodated based on our property size, we were tremendously surprised to learn that every aspect we deemed important was included, and she is so creative she vastly improved on our design ideas. In summary, she hit it out of the ball park - our final design was everything we hoped for and more! In addition, Christina remains very accessible throughout the construction of our home. We and our contractor receive prompt answers whenever we have had questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Christina Amey Architect LLC!"

How do I find the best Cape May 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 New Jersey 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 Cape May 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 Cape May, NJ 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 Cape May, NJ 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 Cape May 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?
