Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in El Segundo, CA
Laney LA, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in El Segundo, CA
"It's my pleasure to inform Houzz and its body of consumers of the great service I received from Laney LA. Having been a developer for 2 decades, this wasn't my first rodeo, per se, but I did want to hit this project out of the park so I decided to use a designer to facilitate my renovation of a Spanish themed single family home in Los Angeles. After meeting with 3 designers, all of whom had impressive resumes, we decided on working with Laney LA. In this field of business, with something as subjective as design, you never know how well your vision will be maintained. Now, being 95% underway and my contract with Laney completely fulfilled, I'm more than pleased with the service I received and the implementation of our collective choices. For me, the true gauge of customer service isn't how I'm treated at the beginning of a job but how I'm treated at the end of a job; when all payments have been made and the project is still going. I'm so impressed with Laney's bedside manner; their above and beyond approach to customer service. In my opinion, their customer service models the Platinum 'American Express' type of business acumen. They truly deliver extraordinary service - our appreciation for them initiated the drafting of this review; it's well deserved but more importantly earned!"

HH Design
Architects and Building Designers in El Segundo, CA
"My husband and I own a four unit apartment building in the Beverlywood area of Los Angeles that was constructed in the '40's. It was originally one of the "Co-op Style" buildings similar to the condos of today. Due to extenuating circumstances, it has been extremely difficult to update the building. HHDesign, with confidence and poise came to our rescue. Their professionalism and architectural expertise have turned a nightmare into a sweet dream. We were so impressed with their portfolio which is largely high-end and contemporary. This could have possibly been a stumbling block, however; you can imagine how pleased we were when, at their suggestion, they maintained the integrity of the building and style of the neighborhood. Even better yet, while honoring our budgetary constraints, they managed to give the building and grounds an incredibly needed facelift and artfully pulled the exterior facade into the 21st Century. We have had numerous complements from neighbors and friends and now have pride of ownership thanks to the tireless efforts and extraordinary service afforded by HHDesign. It is with the utmost sincerity that we recommend this highly efficient and talented team to the consumers of Houzz."

Joseph Spierer Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in El Segundo, CA
"Joe came out and did an entire inspection of my house at no cost. He gave my wife and I specific advice on what we could do to give ourselves more space. Joe gave us absolutely no pressure about making the improvements that he discussed. As it turned out, we didn't make any changes, but Joe was very helpful, and when we do need to add to or change our house we will definitely talk to Joe again."

Brandon Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in El Segundo, 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.

BCi Designs
Architects and Building Designers in El Segundo, CA
"I met Bea from BCI Designs when we were both hired for the same project, and we just clicked right away. She is a wealth of knowledge, and her professionalism is unparalleled in the field. Since our first successful project together, I've brought Bea to other clients. It gives me peace of mind to have experts like Bea and her team in my corner! I won't hesitate to highly recommend her services."
- Hudson Home
Architects and Building Designers in El Segundo, CA
"Philip Oloo at spacialists produced renderings for both the interior and exterior of the remodel we are currently working on. He was able to take abstract (to me) plans and create a virtual space that is helping us make decisions that would have been almost impossible otherwise. He was very responsive and easy to work with. If the actual space comes close to the one in his rendering we will indeed be thrilled. Because our architect was the one who communicated with Philip initially -- which was absolutely necessary -- I didn't get involved until later and failed to ask enough questions about the process. For example, I never knew how much choice I had regarding the furniture depicted (I still don't) or light fixtures and as a result the ones used are not consistent with our style. This is only a minor distraction but it would be good to establish those issues from the beginning."

NRG Design

These few words sum up her work... attentive, timely, caring, profesional,creative and organized. She has a keen sense for detail and worked closely within our budget. Everyday we walk into our kitchen and feel so blessed. Thank you Nevert!!!"

She brought great creativity and a unique style to all aspects of the design of each home. Her attention to detail is remarkable.

"Jason and Lauren of MYD studio were responsible for the successful remodel of my kitchen in Orange County, California. They created a great design based on my needs and requests, and also, managed the construction of the whole project. I couldn't be happier with the result and working relationship throughout the project. I highly recommend MYD studio and hope to work with them again in the future!"

How do I find the best El Segundo 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 El Segundo 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 El Segundo, 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 El Segundo, 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 El Segundo 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?
