Featured Reviews for Concord, CA Architects and Building Designers

Lorin Hill, Architect
Concord, 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.

We have worked with Dencity for almost eight years and truly enjoy our working relationship. Both principles are fantastic architects who care about the projects and the clients desires and goals for their home. They respect others opinions regarding the project which creates an open forum and results in a better project and value for the client.
MKB Design & Management
Concord, CA Architects and Building Designers
April 6, 2014
We are preparing to update an 80's galley kitchen. I contacted MKB Design based on a colleague's recommendation and after viewing their posted designs. I let them know that we were not going to move on a project immediately, but that we needed to have a realistic plan in place so that we would know what to save for. Melissa and her associate Sarah, have been extremely professional in their approach and kept things real as we discussed the goals and associated costs. After coming up with several designs, we picked a hybrid plan that we like. From there MKB presented us with three options, (a) we gather the necessary information on appliances, lights, flooring, counter tops, etc., (b) they work with us at the various vendors; or, (c) they do most of this leg work. We accumulated most the information to the point where the design took on a more finished look and with a tighter budget estimate. Likewise, when the time comes for actually moving forward, MKB will be as involved in oversight as we chose. Frankly, when it gets to that point I have confidence that we can rely on MKB to look out after our best interests. In summary, working with MKB has been easy. They are as attentive as you want them to be, but still prodded us when necessary. We really like the plan and look forward completing this kitchen.
Gayler Design Build
Concord, CA Architects and Building Designers
February 21, 2014
I was brought in as a color consultant on a master bedroom addition project for Gayler Construction. From my first interaction with their manager, Darlene Gayler, I was impressed by the professionalism of the office staff, by their attention to detail, and very clear approach and process to every project. They have high expectations of every participant on a project, have systems in place to ensure tracking and clarity from both the provider and client side. Very few contractors offer a 5 year warranty on their work: Gayler Construction delivers expertise every client can count on.
CB Architecture + Design
Concord, CA Architects and Building Designers
April 17, 2015
Megan transformed a tired 1960's ranch-style into a beautiful home. We had struggled for many years with how to replace an outdated railing separating a long hallway from the sunken living room. Megan came up with a shelf design that was both beautiful and practical. She turned a dark panelled kitchen into a light, airy heart of the home. Megan brings architectural savvy and a fine attention to detail -- the style and position of every light, the type of plumbing fixture, the loveliest tile and backsplash, the handles on the kitchen cabinets, the most durable and beautiful wood floor. She accompanied us in selecting these items. Most of all, Megan is a great -- and fun!--person to work with. She listens, provides options, is always on time and stays within budget. She helped us develop the criteria for selecting a contractor, assisted us with interviews, all of which enabled us to select a contractor who fit our needs and budget. In summary, Megan is not only a skilled designer, but a highly effective project manager.
Baran Studio Architecture
Concord, CA Architects and Building Designers
March 24, 2013
We have worked with Baran Studio on five new construction homes and many rehabs/remodels. He is a professional in every way - creative, easy to communicate with, honest, knowledgeable, responsive and quick. What I have been most impressed with over the years, is his ability to design and build to each site's / client's needs without ever subjugating the art of the design.
Carolyn Van Lang
Concord, CA Architects and Building Designers
September 22, 2014
Carolyn was instrumental with our entire house remodel. She helped execute a floor plan and was our number one source for all detail design work that was done in the house. She has a great eye, superb knowledge of architectural details, a true commitment to keeping the look of the home consistent with the age of the home and expertise in tile, fireplace, railing, paint colors and lighting. This is a very short list of her skills. She is easy to work with. Her communication skills are commendable. She made us feel as if we were her only client when we were not. She is flexible, available for consults and fast to return drawings. We loved working with her and thank her dearly for making our home beautiful. She made a really long project seem bearable. She works hard, listens well and cares about all aspects of the project from small to large. We would highly recommend her to all our friends and to those we don't know- like you!
DOUGLAS A. MCQUILLAN - ARCHITECT
Concord, CA Architects and Building Designers
March 26, 2013
Doug remodeled and re-built our Cape Cod style house in Lafayette, and did a fabulous job. His design was true to the original style of the house, and yet made a reality of our vision to update and enhance the original. The kitchen was featured on the Lafayette kitchen tour. His detail work is extraordinary. I have heard of design professionals who are difficult to work with, but Doug is the opposite. He was very patient with us, and coordinated well with everyone else on the job (interior designer, contractor, subs). He is very efficient, which means that his fees were extremely reasonable. All the above is why a number of the most elegant homes in Lafayette were done by Doug.

We are currently working with Kenny on a remodel of the front half of our home, consisting of a kitchen, great room, dining room and an office. He is a pleasure to work with, is extremely thorough and has great and innovative ideas. He listens to your wants and needs, delivers a great work product and he makes the design process fun. We would recommend him without any reservations!!!!
Mark Molinar
Concord, CA Architects and Building Designers
May 4, 2016
We worked with Mark to design our new home. He spent the time with us to understand what we wanted. He incorporated our needs and requirements into various plan options and provided us with information on costs, pros and cons, etc. We had a very complicated project - Mark took the initiative to lead us through the planning a design process, acting at times as a project manager and presenting the plan to the city, other engineers and representing us when needed. He was very easy to work with and very professional. Building a custom home has significant challenges - Mark's help was instrumental in getting the project completed on time.
