Brandon Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Corona Del Mar, CA
"I am a local builder in Corona Del Mar, CA. I have watched and admired the many homes Brandon Architects has designed in the area. It did not take me long to realize this firm had many talents. By the time my next project came along, I made sure I would consult with this firm first. From their initial presentation to the drawings and site visits, I have been nothing but impressed. Chris and his team have proved to me they have talent, creativity and professionalism. My project is currently just past the framing stage, and Chris and his team visit my site frequently. Each time they prove to me they are there to assist and support me all the way to completion. I look forward to working with Brandon Architects for years to come.

d'Arcy & Associates Architecture, Inc.

"I can’t say enough about the positive experience I had with Charles d’Arcy . He engaged in the vision and challenges of designing 2 attached condominiums on a very small lot near the beach. As a realtor and real estate investor I have high expectations and he exceeded them. He showed creativity, integrity, professionalism and passion for his work. I truly enjoyed the experience of working with him."

Anders Lasater Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Corona Del Mar, 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."

McRae Lambert Dunn
Architects and Building Designers in Corona Del Mar, CA
"McRae Lambert & Dunn provided a full-service interior design for the residence we worked on together. They are a wonderful design team to work with - very professional. They are confident in their work, and conscientious of the client. They responded quickly and efficiently to design changes during construction. Their drawings were very organized and complete. It was a pleasure to work with them, and we look forward to another project with them in the future."

Home Design Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Corona Del Mar, CA
"Had a great experience working with Don and Lorrene. We purchased a beautiful home in Anaheim Hills in early 2011. They really helped us explore the potential of our house. We really wanted to expand our master bathroom and they were able to to show us 3D computer designs first to help us solidify our decision to go through with it. We shared everything with them: thoughts on what we would like the house to look like, photos from magazines, pictures online, how we'd like the home to function, which parts of the home we like to spend a lot of time in. They took in consideration all of the information we gave them and outlined the scope of the project in detail and ultimately helped us make smart decisions about our home design. We quite enjoyed working with them as they are lovely people and professional. Communication was never problem between us. Whenever we ran into a small problem they were right there to help us solve it quickly. They were with us throughout the entire project (helped us with getting approval with our HOA, picking tile/wood flooring, went shopping with us for fireplaces, negotiated prices with contractors, checked to see if work was finished and up to standard before we made any payments) and we appreciated their attention to details. At one point in the process we weren't even in town for a couple months and they kept the project going. In the end our house turned out beautiful. They gave us everything we needed and more because they truly went above and beyond for our home. Big bonus points to them really helping us control our budget. I couldn't recommend them enough."

How do I find the best Corona Del Mar 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 Corona Del Mar 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 Corona Del Mar, 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 Corona Del Mar, 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 Corona Del Mar 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?
