Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Driftwood, TX
Danze & Davis Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Driftwood, TX
"I can't tell you how much I love our Lake Travis home Donovan Davis drew/designed for us. I am certainly not the easiest to please and I am absolutely thrilled with the end results. Donovan was able to capture the lake views from every room and achieved it with amazing style and design. Not only do we have a view from every room but we can see the stars and the moon from several rooms which is truly amazing and one of my favorite features! Donovan was fun to work with, he listened to all of our wants and made my dreams a reality. He surpassed all of my expectations and his passion for Architectures shows when you look at my home. We have had numerous people stop to say how much they like the design of our home so don't hesitate to use this firm they are true professionals that love what they do! Thank you Donovan and Harrison Davis!"

Clark | Richardson Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Driftwood, TX
"I have worked with many architects over the years, and and can easily say, Clark/ Richardson Architects was hands down the best. They paid close attention to my vision of the spaces I wanted to create in my new home and worked closely with me to bring them to a reality. More than just the visual aesthetic, they created the feel that I was hoping for. Not easy to do when you are remodeling a 90 year old home and have to deal with Historic Preservation guidelines at the same time. They were easy to get along with personally, for both me and my contractor. Their attention to detail was impeccable. I am thrilled with my beautiful, comfortable, 5 star energy efficient home!!"
- Elizabeth Williams
Erica Keast Heroy, Architect

"I have had the pleasure of working with Erica on several projects of varying sizes and she has been incredible to work with on each of them. She is super creative and very thoughtful in her designs, making sure that every share inch of the home is integrated into the overall design of the home. She is also a great team player - making regular site visits and working closely with the owners, builder, and subs to ensure the design is perfectly implemented. She is a hard worker, willing to go the extra mile to make the home shine!"

HA Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Driftwood, TX
"My wife and I have been working with Jamie and his studio on our home addition for a long time. Jamie was very patient as we worked through multiple design iterations. Jamie is a good collaborator and encourages participation in the design process. During permitting, Jamie was invaluable. He guided the project through the City's review process and knew how to get things done. Jamie has good industry contacts and helped us with contractor selection. We recently broke ground and I'm very excited to see this project take shape."

Daniel Boardman Residential Design
Architects and Building Designers in Driftwood, TX
"My wife and I bought 5 acres of land in order to build our dream house. We interviewed several Architects before selecting Daniel, and we are very happy we chose him. We wanted something different from the typical suburban production house that we had in Circle C Ranch. The design process with Daniel was fun and exciting as we figured out the how to best fit our home to the sloping land. We designed a home that specifically met our site and design goals. Daniel is very creative, really thinks out of the box, but is also conscious of figuring out the most cost efficient way to get what he is looking for and still maintain the integrity of the design. He was very receptive to our ideas and had positive input and information to help us design an addition to our home. It was a complicated design equation because we had to incorporate ADA livability. His lateral thinking made our ideas for these challenges even better. Can't thank him enough for his professionalism and friendly disposition. He was also very accommodating to our difficult schedules for meetings. Can't recommend him highly enough!"
- John McCune
Nathan Harwell, Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Driftwood, TX
"Mr. Harwell was extremely helpful in planning an addition to our existing home. Our home was built 25 years ago and required expertise to develop a design that would be functional and space efficient. He had great ideas that helped us to configure the ideal space to meet our family’s needs. He not only offered helpful suggestions but was also willing to modify existing plans to meet our personal preferences."

Venture Four Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Driftwood, TX
"I recently hired Venture Four Architects and Ken Smith on the recommendation of my builder, Ron McGuire. I cannot say enough good things about Ken, his excellent design for our guest house, the firm and their stellar handling of our project from start to finish. They are incredible architects and produced our design plans within weeks (rather than the standard months that most firms take) for a price that my husband and I felt was extremely reasonable. I would recommend Ken Smith and Venture Four Architects to anyone looking for a professional, reliable architect who listens to the client and then helps create the desired design on time and within budget. Five stars!"
- Melanie Fenelon
Geschke Group Architecture

"Kai Geschke combined creativity and german efficiancy to design the perfect custom home for us! He listened carefully to our wants and needs and incorporated them beautifully into the technical work he did as our architect. He helped us think about aspects of designing a home that never would have occured to us and provided expertise in all the areas that we hired a professional for, while being considerate of our tastes and special needs. He worked to accomodate our timing and is quick to respond to questions or concerns. He has been great about making changes and seeing this process through to our complete satisfaction. We recommend him highly!"

How do I find the best Driftwood 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 Texas 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 Driftwood 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 Driftwood, TX 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 Driftwood, TX 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 Driftwood 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?
