Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Carson, CA
FoxLin Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Carson, CA
"My husband and I worked with FoxLin Architects on our custom ground up home in Carlsbad (north of San Diego), California and we would very highly recommend them. The home is now complete and it is remarkable down to the last detail. We felt like our values were always considered and we had countless conversations about even the smallest of details from paint colors to the cabinetry handles. At times we questioned the proposals and in the end we could see and now can understand their vision. Juintow and Michael are both very talented, innovated and experienced architects, designers, and project managers who can easily show many iterations on the computer as well as obtain countless physical samples of tiles, stain samples etc. This level of personal dedication and attention to detail is what constantly put us at ease on the design of our new home. 
 The bottom line is that we count on them for envisioning designs and that is also what set them apart from others. It is also worth mention that they were always grounded enough to understand our budget and make not only beautiful, but also realistic proposals. Again, we are highly recommending FoxLin Architects to anyone who wants a bit more than norm."

Jeannette Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Carson, CA
"My wife and I hired Jeannette Architects to assist us with a major remodel (interior/exterior) of our 3,500 sq. ft. ranch style home in Newport Beach. The task: incorporate warm contemporary design into our 1970's "woody cabin." As a real estate developer and because it's our third major house remodel there were many design elements we knew we wanted but many more that we needed help with. As capable as Jeff (Jeannette) is with his design sense, we believe that it's his ability to listen to his clients, understand client goals, how we will live in the space and how that fits into our budget is what sets Jeff apart from other architects. The Jeannette team met aggressive time constraints, produced a thorough set of construction documents, were always quick to provide clarification and answers to our questions and were great resources for product and material options and information. True professionals that we would use again and confidently refer to others. Our project is nearing completion and I can't wait to share photos."

"Jason and Lauren of MYD studio were responsible for the successful remodel of my kitchen in Orange County, California. They created a great design based on my needs and requests, and also, managed the construction of the whole project. I couldn't be happier with the result and working relationship throughout the project. I highly recommend MYD studio and hope to work with them again in the future!"

Rees Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Carson, CA
"I have built three projects with Bobby Rees (2 multi-million dollar homes and one pretty nice, ocean-view 11th floor West-LA office) in the past 15 years. All of the projects have been total successes. Bobby comes from the best, cost-no-object modern "50's" firms in town and one of the name partners turned me on to Bobby. It was a great bit of advice that has made me a few millions of dollars of gains while my family lives in modern bliss. We couldn't be more happy and JUST TODAY I brought Bobby a new project for a new business venture of mine. He is a salt-of-the-Earth guy who will rock for you - 100% guaranteed!"

"We moved into our awesome residence in Hermosa Beach this week and are elated... each day we find ourselves appreciating something new here. A big thank-you to David and everyone in the architect office for all your creativity and patience with us!"

Anders Lasater Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Carson, CA
"We were in the market for several years for a house in Laguna Beach before we found the one we wanted. During that search, we heard many hair-raising stories about how difficult it can be to remodel in Laguna, so we decided to use a local architect and were referred to Anders Lasater. Turned out to be a great referral, because Anders and his staff not only helped us navigate the labyrinthian planning department process, they also provided us with a wealth of information about what works and what doesn't in Laguna. The remodel turned out to be much more complicated than expected because of numerous elevation changes on the property. They stayed with the project from start to finish, dropping in on short notice when we needed input. We asked for several large modifications along the way and those were handled with patience, care and creative suggestions. Anders himself went to speak with neighbors when they raised concerns and was a partner in the whole process."

How do I find the best Carson 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 California 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 Carson 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 Carson, CA 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 Carson, CA 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 Carson 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?
