Featured Reviews for Castro Valley, CA Architects and Building Designers

Guy Lubroth, Architect
Castro Valley, CA Architects and Building Designers
December 29, 2014
We engaged Architect Guy Lubroth to help us remodel our apartment in San Francisco. He was very professional and thorough in his review of what could be done architecturally. Guy was also very helpful in presenting several alternatives to us. Our remodel is now complete and it is as perfect as we could have wanted. Thanks to Guy's help the HOA approvals went thru easily and the entire experience was good. We can highly recommend Guy Lubroth to anyone considering building or remodeling. Sincerely, Noel Pinto

We used John Lum Architecture for the complete remodel of ~1000 sq ft in San Francisco. John and team were fantastic to work with. Very creative yet good at listening to our thoughts and integrating our ideas. They understand how to both design a gorgeous contemporary space while still keeping it comfortable and livable. We depended on them with a lot of design detail recommendations such as fixtures, paint, tiles and they always had great suggestions that made the process much simpler and easy to manage. They are very professional, extremely responsive and timely. There were no surprises during the entire process including on deadlines and budgets. I would strongly recommend them.

PENG DESIGN STUDIO
Castro Valley, CA Architects and Building Designers
June 17, 2020
We cannot recommend Jeremy and his team enough. Our project was a full renovation of our 3 story townhouse, originally built in the mid-80's, and literally everything needed updating. My wife and I thought we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to do and how we wanted our renovated house to look, so our original intent was to work closely with our contractor to make all the design decisions on our own. In hindsight, I'm so glad we did not go that route. It didn't take long for us to realize we were in over our heads - as the saying goes "you don't know what you don't know" and that was definitely the case here. If you want a well thought out design, taking both functionality and aesthetics into consideration while ensuring a consistent flow throughout the house, you need an expert. Fortunately for us, we found Jeremy. From our very first interaction we were impressed not just with Jeremy's knowledge and experience in design, but also the importance he placed on getting to know our tastes, priorities, and the outcome we wanted. Over the course of our project we never felt pressured to make a decision that we weren't comfortable with or that we felt didn't fit our needs. That said, Jeremy had many insights and suggestions that frankly we would not have thought of that significantly improved the final result. For example, a small tweak to our first floor design netted us noticeably more room in our kitchen, giving us more cabinet and counter space, as well as improving the flow of traffic. Jeremy is also quite knowledgeable and resourceful. Having him work closely with us in all our material selections - lighting, floors, fixtures, tile, paint, etc. made all the difference. What would have seemed overwhelming became a manageable and coordinated process. He knows which features, brands, qualities to look for. He can also tell you which decisions are important, and which not as much so. This helped us focus on important decisions and not sweat the small stuff. Lastly, Jeremy is a true design professional. He worked seamlessly with our contractors to make sure they understood and followed through with our designs. Detailed and highly professional plans, e.g., RCP, floor plans, elevations, renderings, etc. exceeded our expectations and were very much appreciated by ourselves as well as our contractor. It takes all the guesswork and ambiguity out of the execution, as should be the case. They're also extremely helpful when visiting showrooms - we were often asked how we created the plans or who made them for us. And, Jeremy was always accessible to provide feedback and suggestions 'on the fly', providing a quick sketch or rendering to help us make decisions in real-time. Bottom line, you can tell when someone has a real passion for what they do, and Jeremy has a passion for design. He is a pleasure to work with and he knows what he's doing - I would not hesitate for a moment to hire him for your project.

Andrea designed a complete backyard remodel for us that involved extensive grading, hardscape and landscaping. The job turned out even better than expected and we constantly get accolades on the design. She chose the plants beautifully and 5 years out the yard looks better than ever and the plants have maintained and grown in even with restricted water use. I would highly recommend her and we plan to use her services again!
Mikiten Architecture
Castro Valley, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 30, 2014
We hired Erick Mikiten as the project architect for a major kitchen remodel and some ancillary work on the entrance porches to the house in 1994/95. We wanted to expand the kitchen, remodel the interior to include new cabinets and an island, provide a new seating area in an addition at the rear of the house, and improve what was then an awkward connection between the kitchen and a rear bedroom. Erick came up with a very creative solution to the space constraints in the existing kitchen that resulted in a much more spacious kitchen with a larger island than we had anticipated. The addition on the rear of the house not only provided a seating area with views into the rear garden that we use on a daily basis, but included a very attractive raised ceiling and exterior architecture that continue to receive admiring comments from friends and visitors almost 20 years later. Erick's firm also recommended a new color scheme for the exterior of the house, which we adopted. Even now, from time to time complete strangers stop by to ask about the specifications of the paint colors because they find it so attractive and are considering doing something similar. Throughout the project Erick made great efforts to understand what we were looking for and present alternative options to achieve this, going through multiple iterations of the design as we refined the concept together, then producing a final design that satisfied our budget constraints. During construction, Erick visited the site on a regular basis and worked closely with the contractor to make sure that the work was being done in conformance with the design.
Lorin Hill, Architect
Castro Valley, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 12, 2014
We were terrified to finally remodel. Now we're halfway through the job, and I'm wondering how it could possibly be going so well? The answer: Lorin Hill, Architect, and his team. Ours is not a small job - we've excavated a basement; moved the kitchen, downstairs powder room, laundry room (which went from 1st to 2nd floor); and moved a lot of walls and reconfigured closets to dramatically improve our space. We didn't know where to bookend the project, and could see endless options for how to improve our home. We interviewed multiple architects - familiar names that had signs up on the best streets. It was immediately clear that Lorin was the architect for us - he took in the important character of the home (and setting/land, neighboring homes, and street), he saw how we could shape the project to make the most of our resources and opportunities, and his communication style was unmatched by larger and smaller specialty firms alike. He's insightful, funny, has decades of experience in his craft, and (this is where Lorin really hits it out of the park) his design eye is so excellent that he is saving us from hiring a host of other professionals to make our finished result truly sing. In some ways I'd love to keep Lorin Hill our little secret - I can count on only one hand the service providers that so exceed my expectations that their fees don't seem high enough for what they provide (note the design comment above, and he's smoothed enough husband/wife remodel debates - helping us each see logic - that we'll happily enjoy our home for years to come, marriage intact). If you're lucky enough to find Lorin Hill with a space in his schedule that fits your project, grab it. If we ever win the lottery and have unlimited funds, we'll be back to take up all the rest of Lorin's time.
Farcorp
Castro Valley, CA Architects and Building Designers
March 5, 2019
Frank Rains and Farcorp have been great to work with! Everything about working with Frank is awesome. Clear communication, great prices, and honoring his commitments (even when he's sick), Frank designed two houses for me and they were exactly what I needed at a great price compared to architects I had spoken with. He was quick and high quality. What more could you ask for?
