Cooper Johnson Smith Architects and Town Planners
Architects and Building Designers in Ellenton, FL
"Stephen Smith designed a waterfront home for my wife and me in Boca Grande, Fl. On a 1 to 10 scale with 10 being the highest mark, we give him a 10. His services produced a one of a kind classic island design that is extremely functional. The comprehensive plans enables us to effectively hard bid the project. After interviewing other qualified architects for the job, it became quite clear that Stephen's plans provided attention to detail like no other architect. Our contractor enjoyed working with Stephen on the project. We simply loved working with him and his ultimate work product."

Architects and Building Designers in Ellenton, FL
"Elizabeth and David are wonderful Architects and Designers. We have a beach cottage built in 1938, and with the designs from Elizabeth and David were able to modernize our home but keep many of the original, classic features. The job was designed and managed on time and on budget. The end result was that our home was selected as the Primier Home on the Pass-A-Grille Womans Club Home Tour in 2009. I would recommend them for any project!"

Sonya Lee Architect llc
Architects and Building Designers in Ellenton, FL
"We hired Sonya Lee as architect to design and manage a complete gut renovation of a pre-war apartment in Forest Hills Gardens, NY. I can't even imagine another architect doing a better job than what she did for us. She has our absolutely highest recommendation possible. Process & Knowledge -- Sonya managed the contractors, the architectural drawings, the electrical and plumbing drawings, the Dept of Buildings approval, and helped us deal with the building's board process. She coordinated the entire renovation with an incredible handle on every detail and turned a giant project into manageable pieces and kept it all transparent enough that we knew where we were on status and what the next steps were. She verified all the bills and invoices presented from the contractors and helped us negotiate costs with them. She picked out furniture pieces and fixtures for us. Her expertise was such that we could ask her any question at any time about materials and she could quote price ranges to us, explain the pros and cons of different choices, and she knew everything that the contractors were doing and when they were doing it. There was never a missed deadline from her and she rigorously talked through budget choices and kept us in our desired range. The peace of mind from having someone like her in charge was without question worth the cost of hiring her. Design -- Sonya has an elegant modern sensibility about design, but she doesn't impose anything on you. She reviewed sample picture designs we liked, asked thoughtful questions about our intended use and worked to create a beautiful, airy design for our apartment that maximized a modern, timeless aesthetic with our needs for a durable and functional family life with small children. Put it this way, everything she created was beautiful, could withstand a beating from our kids and will not be dated years and years from now. Experience -- I think I've said this already, but if it's not clear, Sonya Lee knows just about everything there is to know for modern renovations. Here's a sampling of some stuff we asked about: light bulb choices and lighting and environmental impact, the hardness of different counters, how to clean wood finishes, "what is that thing behind the wall?", how many internet data jacks should we have, will the Dept of Buildings ask questions about xyz, is there a cheaper option for cabinet handles, what do we do if we want to install a heated toilet later, how is the sound dampening quality of this rug, etc. She knew everything. Attitude -- Sonya Lee is sweet and kind, but tough on slow contractors. Seriously, she is a very easy person to get along with and has an honestly positive attitude."

"Jenn did a great job creating a new kitchen space in an older house where the kitchen was pathetic! We love our new, modern, spacious kitchen, and Jenn even created a walk in pantry space out of nothing! In doing so, she moved walls around so now when we walk into the house we have a direct view of our lake. She was also timely, professional, and reasonably priced. Thank you Jenn!"

Hittmeier Design Consultants
Architects and Building Designers in Ellenton, FL
"Todd has amazing talent. He is an artist whose personal ownership in each project is unparalleled. He listens to what your vision is, and brings it to life.......and then some! He is not an architect that drops off the drawings with your builder and you never see him again. He is a true partner on the journey to your dream home. I highly recommend Todd. He has taught us a lot over the time we have been building our home. He is good about explaining architecture, and incorporating the architecture into your interior vision/design as well. We do not plan on building another dream home, but if we did, there would be no question as to who our architect would be - Todd Hittmeier."

How do I find the best Ellenton 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 Ellenton 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 Ellenton, 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 Ellenton, 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 Ellenton 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?
