Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Coral Gables, FL
United Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Coral Gables, FL
"United Architects exceeded my expectations in every way. The details, creativity and design excellence put into a complete remodel of my home was beyond what any other firm could have supplied. The remodel was a total renovation of 2000 sq ft walk-up/brownstone/row home type residential property with two floors. The customer service was exemplary, the work received was done quickly and efficiently. They were with me every step of the way. I highly recommend Maria Luisa Castellanos, R.A. Principle of the firm to coordinate any project you may have. Her consultation assured me I had found the right Architect and I couldn't be more pleased with her level of integrity."

"In my Architectural and professional opinion, Eolo A&I Design firm has been, and continues to be, very instrumental in many of the design and construction phases of the projects we're both involved in. I considered Sandra and Andres colleagues, associates and especially friends. I am very fortunate to be working with them and look forward to many exciting projects and ventures."

kevin akey -azd associates
Architects and Building Designers in Coral Gables, FL
"Rarely does the creative muse manifest itself in genius. It is a rare and beautiful thing. The architectural work that comes out of AZD is true genius, evidenced by the lower level copies of their work that are now floating around. They have always pushed for originality in the art that they create. Those lucky few who actually own an AZD creation have a genuine architectural masterpiece. I always have to bring my A game when I do design work for them. It is always a delight and an honor. R. J. Laney"

GALLAGHER / AP
Architects and Building Designers in Coral Gables, FL
"I have known Robert Gallagher for many years. I have followed his work with Peter Marino, Ralph Lauren and Arquitectonica. He worked on our homes in New York, Louisiana, Tokyo, Singapore and California. We are currently working with him in conceptualizing and designing a new home in California. He understands what we want and anticipates what we need. His visualization of ideas and ability to make them into reality is beyond what I would have expected. We are thrilled with his designs for our new property. Beyond that, he is a very nice, patient man who makes it easy for us even thought redesigning and particularly building homes can be stressful. We recommend him without reservation. Robert has been able to adapt our lifestyle into our homes in very different environments."

Calil Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Coral Gables, FL
"Calil Architects were our designers and architects of the project, from idea inception thru completion. The continuous communication between design, plans, blue prints, relationship to contractors and to permit inspectors was open, steady and live at all times. All questions and concerns were immediately addressed, and doubts were never left on the table. Changes and corrections were submitted promptly, and the whole permitting process was always smooth and timely. The finish product- our place of business- is truly an industry showpiece !"

How do I find the best Coral Gables 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 Florida 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 Coral Gables 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 Coral Gables, FL 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 Coral Gables, FL 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 Coral Gables 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?
